I Accept the Fact That Im Not Perfect

i know im not perfect, and i like that. 8,793 People

    Life Is A Gift.

    For the longest time, I allowed others to make me feel inadequate, sometimes even ashamed of who, or how I was. I lived to others expectations and not my own, cared more about what people around me thought, than how I myself thought. This way of thinking, just helped feed my...

    I know I will never be perfect,

    nor do I want to be perfect. I feel that if you have the 'perfect' life it would get boring, everything coming to you at the time you want it, life's more exciting with little curveballs and the fact that people DO have flaws. It teaches us that we have to learn to love someone...

    It's a blessing and a curse.

    Being me. Wearing these shoes. However snug the fit, I think it's designed for someone else to wear. I don't wear it well. I'm not meant to be here. To be wearing it.

    MORE FLAWS THAN I CAN COUNT.

    Where do I begin? I'm far from perfect. Yet, I've tried to be the best person that I could possibly be. First, I'm short. I'm only 5 ft, 2 in. and weigh just a little over 100 lbs. I can't exactly look over a crowd and I'm afraid I'd be crushed in it. I've been told that I...

    Nobody is perfect. If someone seems perfect you

    can be sure they have some flaws and secrets. It just means they put a lot more effort into hiding them. Everyone makes mistakes, its part of being human and if you meet someone who is perfect and not hiding any flaws then run because they are a robot!

    Everyone one of us is not perfect,

    being perfect is boring there is no adventure in your life, every each of us commit sins, and if we commit sins that's the time that we learn our lessons in life. So don't be insecure because I've said earlier each of us is not perfect ♥:)♥

    I actually quite enjoy my flaws.

    Haha. The thing that is becoming quite a problem though is my worry about being viewed differently than how I really am. It's an odd problem, but I am seeing help from a therapist about how I can lower my anxiety. Every session is another step forward to truly accepting myself.
