I have noticed that when a living thing is used in a story or to point our psychological strengths and weaknesses it is usually an animal like an elephant, a wolf, a tiger, an owl, a dolphin or some animal like that.
Rarely does anyone use a plant to illustrate a human characteristic let alone a weed. A weed is a plant considered unwanted in a particular situation, that is a weed is a plant in the wrong place.
I have often felt like a weed in my life. I used to think there was something wrong with me but often it was because I was in the wrong place. Maybe with the people who did not understand me, maybe I was in an unsuitable job, maybe I was living in the wrong town, but I usually came to the conclusion there was something not right with me.
The thing is maybe I was a weed and I just need to find the right place for me.
Have you ever felt you were in the wrong place, or you were surrounded by people who did not understand you?
If you moved to another place and found people accepted you did that help?
Or are you still looking for that special environment where you can be appreciated and nurtured?
Have you ever felt like a weed?
