Do you agree that mitigating or attempting to control your weaknesses or flaws can have a deleterious effect on your strengths?

A question from a reader of my book: “Do you agree that mitigating or attempting to control your weaknesses or flaws can have a deleterious effect on your strengths?”

Response: Humbly and respectfully, no I don’t agree. I believe it is significant to learn to better and better embrace our strengths and weaknesses – endeavoring to Witness them in a more and more unblemished fashion…see them for what they TRULY are.
 
Carl Jung so eloquently set forth: “Many of the most difficult issues in life cannot be overcome…they can only be outgrown.” That said, we should not ignore our weaknesses, but obviously should not get lost there – yin to yang. Surviving is obviously not the same as learning to better and better thrive. We can lovingly embrace our comfort and discomfort, and learn to outgrow our weaknesses…to the point where we can let them go…they become unimportant. We cannot cure anything…albeit we CAN heal it. This is true strength – often requiring of true effort. It is benevolently and altruistically congruent with taking true responsibility for our own health and well-being…it is consistent with what may be our greatest of responsibilities, e.g., making the world a better place. It is lovingly consistent with endeavoring to do the right thing for the right sake…without the need for selfish recognition or hidden agendas. Oh boy! — Dr. Glen Hepker
