My Strength of Writing

I’ve been spending some quality time in my thoughts. They can be positive or negative, but the direction they have been taking these days is leaning more towards the positive side. It’s been difficult to shut them down at night. The reason I have been spending so much time with my thoughts is that I have yet to find a job in Nevada.

I had interview for a potential job at the beginning of this week. The employer will remain nameless to respect my affiliation with the company in the event of being hired. I sat in front of two people who interchangeably asked me questions about myself, my background and experience.

What are your strengths,” one of my interviewers asked.

Employers only want to hear your strengths, but what about your weaknesses? To answer their question I said, “I actually was diagnosed with a learning disability in math, but to compensate for my weakness I use my strength of writing and reading. It helps if I write down the steps and read directions until I understand it.” Without my strength I wouldn’t be able to overcome my weakness.

I write because it’s my strength. I showcase it through my blog posts, short stories, essays, and journal entries. My weakness may bring me down, but if it weren’t for my strength of writing I would have given up altogether.

  3. “Without my strength I wouldn’t be able to overcome my weakness.” What a great way to find positivity through the struggle! I think it’s wonderful that you know yourself so well. Good luck through this move, and I wish you all the best!
