Think before you start to speak out:

Be too aggressive to define how awesome you are, or you can be as an employer. Try to talk about both your strengths and weakness. Don’t tell us about your life story, your struggle to the HR manager, as he/she is not your therapist or your best friend! 

 In the interview, the HR manager may ask whether you have had any negative experience in your career. Try to be honest and make this question a turning point for the interview. Share your previous experience, mainly thrust the solution you have come across to overcome any adverse situation. This answer can display your honesty and positivity, depending upon how well you handle it.
