A simple "yes" or "no" answer will do. Elaborations are most welcome, too.
Franko85 saidyes...I regret it now cause it still hurts as we speak, and I don't want to do it again....ever again.
czarodziej saidshowing one's weak side can be a tool for control, if you know how ppl will react to it.
and besides which, im openly candid and honest to all, and am an open book. only thing is some ppl don't read the language its written in lol. but yeah i know my weaknesses and flaws... and i make sure whoever i'm dating does too, so they know what they're getting into lol. i spent years in the closet and i don't ever wanna feel compelled to hide anything again, fearing others will find out, u know?
never regretted it. no one's been able to use it against me. you see, in putting it out there, it ceases to become weakness. yes, its still a bundle of sensitivity or flaws as the case may be, but in owning it, and not being ashamed of it all, others loose the power to affect you through it.
ActiveAndFit saidYour only weak side is the one that is ashamed of yourself. If you can be who you are and not be affected by what others think you are, that is strength. It is the guys that think that not showing emotion is toughness that are the weakest because they are so fearful of others. It is fine letting people in a personal setting know how you feel about things
On the other hand, letting your emotions control you is not good either. In work settings it can also be wise in not divulging too much personal information for strategic reasons.
I wonder what people think is their weakness?
