What are our weaknesses or weak-spots, types of weaknesses and why some of us defend their weaknesses?

Our weakness in us is of our own creation

Created by our own way of thinking

And then our own Karma and Dharma.

We cannot tell that our weaknesses

Are due to somebody else but ourselves.

In essence, we have to understand what actually is meant by our weaknesses. There are some areas in which we remain behind in comparison with others who count for us like weak in memory, weak in health, weak in character, weak in reading and writing, weak  in outlook, weak staying power for any job, weak willed person, weak intentioned persons etc. In other words, anything which lacks perceptible conviction, perseverance, doggedness and whatever is not undertaken without application of mind, its results will not be as encouraging and of any tangible results.

Weakness could be related to:-

In physical health (Physiological)

When we are physically weak resulting in less physical activity. It may be due to lack of exercises or activities or may be due to not taking proper diet. Physical health is as important as anything else in life that counts. It is because if the health is alright, we can utilize that strength to perform a variety of jobs that we want to perform. Lack of strength also leads us to less self-esteem.

In mental health (Psychological)

This is related to our habits, attitudes and other behaviour pattern related to problems such as obsessive behaviour pattern in which a person is compelled by the circumstances to act in a particular manner. It may be negatively oriented too just tarnishing our image in the eyes of our society in which we are living.

Weakness in Character

Everybody knows that our character or temperament counts a lot. It is well nigh said, if health is lost something is lost but if our character is lost everything is lost. Hence we must cultivate all those characteristics which make us strong charactered individuals.  Persons with weak character will not earn anybody’s respect and more so will  not have his self-esteem in long term.

Weakness in giving advice when it is not needed

We must have come across people who are compulsive advice givers even their advice is not called for. These sorts of people gets disappointed when they are snubbed for doing so.

Weakness in confidence or weak willed

Lack in confidence or weakness in confidence leads to disappointment in whatever we put our hands on. Then we have people who do not take any risk for anything which comes in their way.

Weakness in 3 Ws (Weakness for more Wealth,  Women and Wine

  • The people who have weakness for worldly wealth and riches which they want to have by any means whatsoever will meet dissatisfaction ultimately.
  • It has been practically observed that those who have the the weakness  for women beyond the institutionalized married life partner.
  • Then those who are habitual of drinking and become addicted to drinking, it will not only drag the resources of the individual concerned but also our health goes to dogs.

Now coming to your question of defending weakness. Those who do so are in fact weak-links of highest order. I take this weakness as a weakness of highest order. Rather than defending our weaknesses, we ought to take steps to remove both the physical and psychological related weaknesses.

We should not appreciate our weakness rather we should introspect and plug those weaknesses. We should not defend our weaknesses because of the following:-

  1. Can anyone defend abusive friend or one’s own behaviour or attitude?
  • Can anybody defend physical abuse of somebody else?
  • Can we in any way defend our negative traits such as anger, envy, and jealousy?
  • Can anybody defend his/her addiction related habits; such as addition of drugs, liquor, smoking etc.?

The answer for all these weaknesses is NO, NOT AT ALL. We cannot defend and should not defend our weaknesses since by doing so we try to enhance the intensity of weaknesses rather than curbing the same.

GOD is very compassionate with us in every way, need is to use those blessings which are the results of His bounties and thank Him for everything that He gives us. We should also share these bounties with our fellow-beings. I am the person who loves God and His Creations. I love my Creator and not fear Him. My children are adjusted to life, incommensurate, to their Karma and destiny. I have served as a Sr CGO for about 38 years in a Central Govt. Presently I am serving as an Adm Offer with an Engineering College. I am a spiritual person with liberal ways of thinking. I respect all the religions as I respect mine since I understand that all the religions are the pathways to a SINGLE ENTITY - paths for connecting with Him may be different but the ULTIMATE SOURCE IS ONE. I want to be a student till last day of my life. I am a homeopath also, which I pursue as a social service only. Happy moments, I take as God's Gifts, sad ones I take as His Test for me. I believe that He will surely assist me in this Test of His, come what may. Really. I have more belief in Him than I am on my own. You can comprehend my philosophy in life from my write-ups which I write while interacting with them. I firmly believe that every person has the special characteristic which other fellows cannot have and I respect that person as such. With the grace of Almighty God, a book entitled INNER THOUGHTS which could be purchased online from http://flipkart.com. This book is based on the topics which have been penned down. That is why it is rightly said if intentions are good, everything goes well with you.


  1. As humans, we all have some weakness or weak-spots in our lives. Nobody can say, for sure, that he/she has not got any weaknesses.

    I’ve penned down the write-up. Do appraise it and offer your comments.



    1. My sincere thanks for appraising the write-up and comments.

      It is a fact that we all have some weaknesses but those who do not make amends are also there. They disregard their weak-spots as their strength and utilize them for some unethical or immoral acts just enhancing the weaker areas.
