    I have made many mistakes in my life.

    I am not perfect. And I will continue to make mistakes and disappoint others. Even though I regret my past mistakes, I will use them as stepping stones. I will rise from my imperfections, victorious, and with the ones I love.

    The moment we begin to think we've reached

    perfection becomes the moment we forget how to be a good person.

    People who judge others really get on my nerves,

    which is why I make a point not to do that. I admire people who don't pretend to be perfect and those who own up to their mistakes when they make them. I also admire those who strive to improve themselves in whatever area they lack.

    Im far from perfect. But I do feel im a good

    person. I do have morals values and integrity. Some see my flaws before they see my value or worth. Society is messed up these days with simple minded people

    Perfection was something I used to strive for.

    But then I grew up and realized that you can't please everyone. All I can do is sincerely try to enrich the lives of those around me.

    I am my definition of what a good person is.

    You can always find someone who will beg to differ on the characteristics a “good person” has. I’m forgiving, but it doesn’t mean I’m a pushover or will continue to put myself in a position to be victimized. I’m generally generous, but that doesn’t mean I will...

    as such a nasty, bragging snob. You don't understand the fact that it's difficult when parents look up to you like you're an angel. You don't know what it's like to be expected to do the best and only the best in all situations. It's hard. Okay? If we mess up once, we get judged...

    People love to point out my faults,

    but they should also point the finger back at themselves. I am not perfect but neither is anyone else. They should keep that in mind. I just do the best I can, and that's all I really can do.
