I am not ashamed of my weaknesses. I think that it is very important that people learn to embrace their weaknesses and be who they are, because that is who they are. However, if people try to hide their weaknesses or be ashamed of them, they will not be themselves and will become like a bottle of soda that is about to explode because of the "secrets" it holds. I am proud to say that I am tall and you are just taller than I am :D
Plus, I believe that God creates us in his own way and He creates us according to His own image. He made us beautiful just the way we are :D
I wouldn't be ashamed of my weaknesses. I grew up being proud and prideful of who I am. My family is very prideful of who they are and the way they raised me was to always be proud of who you are. If you are brown, yellow, black, white, or whatever the case may be, always be love yourself and eventually everything else will come together. I'm proud to be a Filipino-Mexicano-American.
I have mnany weakness. For example, hearing, seeing with my eye, my body condition. However, i don't complain about that because if i complain about it to God, it gives me more weaknesses. and i enjoy to overcome with my weaknesses
I think that being ashamed of your own weaknesses is really a waste of time. If it's something you can't change then there is no reason to be ashamed, every strength and weakness you posses makes you an individual. Everybody should take pride in their own uniqueness and embrace their quirks :)
I completely agree with Nicolette -- you should just embrace who you are, because everybody is unique for a reason. Like they always say, imperfection is beauty, and the little things that set you apart from everybody else define who you are as a person.
As the day go by, my weakness keep adding up, but it is a part of life and there is no such thing as a perfect person. I am not saying that we should not overcome our weakness, but we should be prepare for the worst.
