What does it mean to be strong? What does it mean to be weak? Over my life, it has been a constant interest for me to philosophize about what it means to be a 'strong' person and what it means to be a 'weak' person. Strength of character, strength of will/resolve, integrity, solidarity... these are all powerful phrases and words which have echoed in my imagination. I was always fascinated with superhero's in comic books and films. I always grew up with a sense of what I considered to be a strong man. I tend to fear being weak, I am deathly afraid of it. I don't think I would be the kind of person I am today if I wasn't strong when I needed to be. Strength to overcome bullying, depression, low self-esteem, bad habits, apathy and nihilism in my teens. Those years seem like a black hole of pain, now that I think about them. Anyway, so, what is strength to you? What is weakness? How do you overcome your own weaknesses? How do you deal with perceived weaknesses in those around you?
