In the Face of Adversity

Most people like to talk the talk.  It is human nature to exaggerate a little.  It makes us feel better about ourselves while helping promote our qualities to potential mates and negate the competition.  It is only in the face of adversity do our true quality appear.  Will we wither and die?  Will we fall into the fetal position and cry?  Will we rise to the occasion but fail?  Maybe we rise above the situation and take control.  Very few rise above in a consistent manner.  Everyone has their kryptonite.  Everyone has their flaws.  I would rather be fighting beside someone who knows their weaknesses than someone who thinks they have none.
