|Our inherited weaknesses are long standing propensities which have often taken up as strongholds in our lives. They are passed down from our forefathers and therefore are hard to acknowledge because they are very strong and have had a long standing impact on our lives. We tend to think, "That is just the way I am." or "I can't help it." As a result we don't think about changing and if so, it seems impossible.
