Rumi Poem | Type 8
There is a sacredness in tears
They are not the mark of weakness
But of power
Why is this an important poem for type Eights to use for reflection? Eights believe that showing vulnerability of any kind is weakness; they also believe that strong is good and weakness is bad. But when they allow the tears of vulnerability to emerge and integrate this aspect of themselves, they learn that true strength includes being vulnerable.
