No personality is perfect, but we have perfectly imperfect personalities. We need to be mindful that our human spirit is perfect and whole and we have been given a human body in which to live and express ourselves. Some of our greatest strengths are also our greatest weaknesses.
For example, a person may be friendly and welcoming. This is a beautiful trait and quality to have. In a world of personality conflicts, this can also be a weakness, because that same person may be afraid to speak up, or it can result in being nice even when we don’t want to be, which can compromise our authenticity.
A person may be very well organised that is conducive and a necessity to keeping organisations, households and work places functional. However if not balanced with flexibility it can be too rigid and not adaptable to unexpected situations or events.
We may have trust issues and find it difficult to get close to people, yet at the same time, this serves to cultivate discernment and awareness of possible conflicts on the horizon.
We may struggle to manage our anger, yet when channelled wisely and in a healthy manner, it can be used to foster determination and grow strength.
Understanding each trait and quality can serve to help us grow and heal. that Each is created perfectly, and accepting with compassion and to teach us to love ourselves first as whole, is part of our spiritual journey.
Honouring and Serving,
