    I really have no idea. I'm always making the wrong choices. I'm hoping someone can answer that for me too!

    Because after a while perfect is boring, there has to be imperfection so we can distinguish the two, the human psyche has a thirst for correcting some thing that they perceive to be imperfect. it takes mystery ,imagination,and curiosity and some times danger to accomplish this , which all add to excitement and which most of us love, but some times dont realize it our selfs. What happens once perfection is achieved a sense of satisfaction by the ego, it then becomes boring, and looses its mystery, wonder, and imagination.

    I think he is saying that we enjoy the road to perfection not perfection when we get it.

    Perfect acting people just aren't as interesting as folks who let their imperfections show. When I meet someone who seems a little too perfect I am always left thinking they might be hiding their true nature. I like folks who are honest about their flaws cause we ALL have them....even the folks who try to hide them.... :)

    ' In these days who is virtuous and who is brave in this world ? (Ramayana 1.1.2)

    Narada said in answer thus : ' He is verily Rama, born in the ancestral line of Iksvakus, known by the people (ibid 1.1.8).

    Even the same Rama and his wife Sita - the mother of the world and paragon of feminine virtue - were scandalised; what to say of others? Thus for instance, people freely speak ill of each other referring to their local peculiarities. Southern Brahmanas censure their northern counterparts as flesh-eaters who are well-versed in the Vedas and are reciprocated by the northerners for their practice of marrying maternal uncle's daughter and also for their carrying earthenware during travels. The rig Vedic brahmanas consider the As'valaayana branch to be superior to the Kaanva branch; and the Vajasaneyins - Yajurvedic think in the opposite way. It is well-known that people - from the learned to women through herdsmen - extol their own community, lineage, relations, gods and the like, and execrate others. With this in view it is said thus :

    'None can satisfy the people, they always speak ill of others - even a pure man is called a demon, a sagacious one is looked upon as a conceited fellow, a forgiving person is deemed as feeble, a strong man thought of as vicious, absorbed in contemplation one is looked upon as a thief and a handsome man as lustful.

    And thus : 'There is no way to please everybody. So, one should try to achieve by all means one's own good; what can the loquacious people do?'

    Maybe because like me I chose people I feel I will be good for and not who would be good for me. I'm always giving in relationships and not taking what I need. It's a receipe for disaster with a wreck of a life left to show for the efforts and even less self respect.
