Don't be ashamed of your weaknesses.

Overcoming your weaknesses is not an easy feat at all. You can't leap or step on it. You should slowly walk and suddenly run to grab the prize. Tiring as it may be, but rest is beyond the finish line.

It feels like expecting a race in a track and field, but in reality it is a rough and tough road for everyone to take on. It is a road that has no trails left for you. It is a road where you should be the one leaving trails for the people that have to take your steps for. You won't know how long it will take you to reach the finish line. You are clueless if it is never ending or it will just force you to stop at one point. You won't know if it is something that will lead you to the trophy you've been fighting for. You won't even know if it is something that will lead you to a total breakdown.

You won't know if it is something that will lead you to the trophy you've been fighting for. You won't even know if it is something that will lead you to a total breakdown.

You've been imagining what your trophy would look like and how it would feel like. Yes, it makes you smile. It inspires you a lot. It gives you sunshine when the road is actually dark. You just accepted the challenge of life, so you took the race.

Suddenly, someone overtakes you. Someone is running rapidly, faster than you. You thought you were the fastest. You thought that you're outstanding. You trusted yourself too much. You were consistent, and you forgot accelerating because you believed that you're the only one who'll win.



Then you tripped because of a tiny rock. You thought it won't make any difference in your life, but it did. You stumbled, got hurt, and you can't stand at all. The vision of your trophy started to get blurry. There's no hand to hold so you can stand again. It felt like the world betrayed you. You regret taking the road. You regret running for your life.

The vision of your trophy started to get blurry. There's no hand to hold so you can stand again. It felt like the world betrayed you. You regret taking the road. You regret running for your life.

You only thought of giving up but in your heart, you know you'd want to stand up again because that is what life is for. Life is for standing straightly, walking gently, and running rapidly if you needed to. You know you got what it takes to finish this race. You're finding the strength to endure again. And this time, nobody can steal that strength away from you anymore. It's enough to carry you through life.

Weaknesses are just areas for improvements, so don't take your wounds seriously. You know it will heal quickly because you are strong. Get back to your goal and focus on that. Use your heart as a foundation for your passion. Use your voice as a melody for encouragement. Use your whole body as a weapon for accomplishing dreams. Use your spirit so you can be fearless.

Don't be ashamed of your weaknesses. Without them, your strengths won't be harnessed. While your strengths give you weapon, weaknesses equip you. Because as we all know this is what life is all about; it happens with repetition but continues with transition. It is a surprise shift that your life has given you.
