    Never Perfect

    I made mistakes, I feel alone, I got a bad grade, I feel lost sometimes, I wear socks that don't match, I fell in front of people, I have bad hair days I am not perfect but I've accepted it a long time ago.

    From Where I Stand I See Perfect On the Horizon...

    Perfect Is Boring.

    I admit, I used to believe in perfection until recently. It was only until I realised that there would be nothing to strive for anymore if I were to be perfect, that I no longer wished to be that way.
