I’ve seen this statement several times on social media but only recently did it dawn on me.

Yes, I notice everything as would most  introverts and for sometime now I’ve seen it as a burden.

But as I pondered on it I realised that it is indeed a strength and not a weakness!
Everything is about perspective, you see.

There are certain vocations which require you to practically ‘notice’ everything. If you pursued such a career path then you can only thrive.

So what does this mean? It means that what you might consider as a weakness might indeed be a strenght in the right environment and application.

The fishs’ inability to survive outside water might be considered a weakness by it’s predator. But when both fish and a non-amphibious predator are put into water, the fishs’ ability to swim becomes a strength at the predator’s loss.

Next time you are asked about your weakness, sell it off as a strength because thats exactly what it is!

  1. I can relate to this as I am an introvert too. Instead of talking I sometimes keep observing the environment around me.. funny thing, I was just thinking about this an hour ago, that I observe too much! 😁
