The normal reaction to negative situations (situations that hold a threat for me) is to react with negativity (with my weakness). But the problem with such a reaction is that each time I use my weakness it only gets further strengthened, and becomes a part of my nature. I need to remind myself that only when I free myself from my weaknesses can I bring benefit to myself or to others. This thought will enable me to constantly check myself and put in constant effort to change myself too in overcoming my weaknesses.
