Asmaa Dokmak says it well, "Strengths and weaknesses are the main elements of our characters. While it is dumb to think you are fault free, it is also harmful to see yourself as worthless." Shalom believes a failure to be a way of learning; she personally has weaknesses that she identifies through self-assessments; however, she never allows herself to go down due to her weaknesses because she also has strengths to back her up in overcoming her weaknesses.
