A not very timely note

This was a blog I once wrote during my high school and early college years. I keep it around for nostalgic purposes, but it is quite obviously no longer updated. I am looking to make a more professional blog presence in the future, but I still like to look at where I was mentally at certain points in time.

"Flaws" by Scythe

Flaws. We all have them. We all despise our own. We all despise those of others or others for their lack of ours. But why? Why is it that we only look at our flaws as opposed to make a conscious effort to work around them by focusing our energy on our strengths? If more people utilized what they DO have as opposed to sitting around all day imagining what they COULD have, I would have no reservation in saying that just about everyone would be happy. Each one of us has been given something unique, and whether or not each one of us will ever be able to distinguish ourselves from the crowd with our unique balance of flaws and strengths is almost entirely up to us, but what exactly defines a flaw? The way that I see it, a flaw is nothing more than an imperfection, and at some point in our lives we must realize that we are not, nor will we ever be, without imperfection, as hard as that may be to admit for some people. At the same time, It is impossible to find a soul without a strength, and as for each flaw, there is a corresponding strength which is in place by default. Think about everything that you were going to do but ultimately did not because you thought your flaws would get in the way. Now imagine if every great mind in history had that mindset. What would the world be like today?

bravo. I say flaws give us character. But to argue ur statement...i'd like to note that maybe there isn't such a thing as universal strength, flaw. It's all relative.

It seems more socially acceptable to express our flaws rather than our strengths.
