flaws no one
can use them
Tyrion Lannister (in Game of Thrones television series)
Part One of Five:
Take a few moments to consider the word “flaw”. Notice what reactions occur within your mind…your body. If you’re like most folks, it usually brings about a negative connotation, often creating thoughts and feelings we want to push away, run from…to ignore.
A flaw frequently presents itself as something we don’t want: in ourselves, in others, in our current circumstance…
Something repellant, to be avoided…
Something to resist or needing to be changed.
But what exactly IS the definition of a Flaw?
And…are Flaws always negative?
• “a : a defect in physical structure or form
• b : an imperfection or weakness and especially one that detracts from the whole or hinders effectiveness”
But…could it be possible that a flaw is not always a flaw?…That a negative view may be only one facet of a flaw and therefore cannot be completely true all the time…That our definition of a “flaw” is a result of subjective observation?
Labeling a flaw as “bad” will ultimately be reflected in what I see: so what I expect is often what will be initially more apparent.
However, should I consider that a flaw may contain characteristics that are not necessarily “negative”, then other perspectives become possible to explore.
Here again, our current beliefs and subsequent choices come into play.
By agreeing to Pause for further analysis, we choose to become open to finding balancing attributes hidden within a “flaw”, freeing us to explore…
What makes a “flaw” NOT a flaw.
