defect/asset







If you obsess about some defect, you make it obvious to everyone, and suddenly everyone is staring at just that defect. It's always like that. The more you hide something, the more it shows. But when you accept your defect, suddenly no one on earth sees it anymore. In fact, it becomes an asset.

Wise, wise words. I struggle using it, though, in every day life.

So true-- I used to have this problem a lot. My "defect" was hiding who I am-- but now, I just act like who I am, and I am who I am. If someone doesn't like it, then i'm sorry!

Thank you for your powerful quotes--they always are so touching!

Well said! I am very petite, and kids used to tease me about it when I was young. Then I figured out that when I highlight it, no one can pick on my height anymore. It became my trademark -a small girl that can pack a punch. :)

SUCH a true quote. :) Most people are far too worried about themselves to really care about anyone else's flaws. I guess there are always a few who like to point out your flaws to you...it's hard to see them as being insecure but I have to assume that's what's at fault there...or they're just incredibly unaware...? :) Thanks for the post.
