They want us to be strong.

I wanted to be strong, too.

But I also needed to learn how to be weak. To fall with or without grace.

See?

This is the problem when they teach us to fix things by using the perspective of Hero versus Villain. We were taught to think of weakness as our enemy and strength as our hero.

But I’ve made up my mind. I’m un-learning it, not all, but bit by bit. That there’s no other villain or hero here. It’s just me. And that I am simply an amalgamation of both strengths and weaknesses.
