I Am Flawed But I Am Working On It

A collection of mistakes, reflections, attempts to be better, epiphanies about life and mortality. 315 People

    This is a reflection on the year.

    I wrote this at the start of this year and now that it's almost over, it seems as if it's a good time to reflect upon it 03/01/2013 2013. A New Year. There are no New Year resolutions. What’s the point. Why bother, when if you wanted to do something, you’d have done it...

    We are all flawed. That's what makes us human.

    And if we don't work on it that is our loss. In my opinion some 'flaws' we shouldn't try to change. But the flaws that hurt ourselves and others we should seek to get rid of.

    I agree with this from the POV of bringing out

    the best in you, but like it or not, we're always going to be flawed. There's no such thing as "flawless" or "perfect", that's what life's all about; it's beautifully flawed. If we keep shooting for those kinds of concepts, we're never going to be satisfied with anything.

    The Creator

    I'm beginning this as a collection of screw ups, attempts to be better, epiphanies about life and mortality. Which is a pretty fundamental part of every self aware & constructive person's life. I'll start this with something I've been thinking about lately. I'm 20 now, but when I...

    My Relationship Rant

    Sometimes I want my fiance to do stupid little things that mean a lot to me. This year, I decorated a jar super cute and filled a bowl with rainbow notepads. The idea is to fill it with funny or interesting things that happen to use throughout the year, and then read them next...

    My closest friend said

    that my biggest flaw is that I get disappointed at people who don't match up to my standards. I admit that I get disappointed at people very easily. I have high standards for myself, in effect, I see other people with the same standards. Does that mean I have to lower my...

    Knowing 22/02/2013 There are those times

    when you have to admit to yourself and others that you are wrong. This week, is one of those weeks. I’m not wrong about what I said. The way I went about it was wrong. I’m aware of that. I never said I was perfect. Never even hinted. I’m damaged. Severely. Those who are...

    Having someone whom you've trusted completely shatter that trust and not only shatter, but bury is indeed an eye opener. Not just an eye opener but an epiphany.
