Some people hide their weaknesses from those they love for not being despised and they hide themselves of those who praise them for not being blamed.
They are wrong twice. First because they don`t know that in case they revealed their weaknesses, those who love them and praise them won`t love or praise them less.
But if these find out their weaknesses by themselves, the disdain and mockery they are so much afraid of will surely appear.
Then because they forget that an Eye sees everything and reveals everything.
Thus it is much better for them to discover their own weaknesses earlier than to leave them grow and be shown later by themselves – as the shame it is better endured at a young age than at the old one.
