Meek not Weak: Sensitive and Strong

Courage and resilience do not always have a rough exterior. Strength can be sensitive, even showing itself in vulnerability. We often conflate meekness and weakness, when in fact, the meekness I am talking about is a harnessed strength. Rather than passively going along with whatever is put upon you from the outside, displaying meekness can be a gracious extending of your own inner space to make room for others. Meekness is walking the second mile with someone not out of obligation, but out of free choice to see another succeed. 

As I see it, meekness is not weakness, it is where sensitive and strong meet.
