a bit of wisdom

"We should not be discouraged or depressed by our shortcomings. No one is without weakness. As part of the divine plan, we are tested to see whether we master weakness or let weakness master us. Proper diagnosis is essential to proper treatment. The Lord gave us this remarkable assurance: “Because thou hast seen thy weakness thou shalt be made strong” (Ether 12:37). But wishing for strength won’t make us strong. It takes faith and work to shore up a weakened cord of integrity." --Russell M. Nelson, "Integrity of Heart", Ensign, Aug. 1995, 19

That's good to know. I have been beating myself up over my zillions of weaknesses lately.
