    I Will Never Be Perfect, But I Will Always Be Unique :)

    What is perfect? Do we really know? No I don't think we do. What may be perfect for me may not be for the next person. Strange isn't it? That's now it is so why strive to be then. That's the reason why I am who I am and want to be, for me and no one else, because if you can't...

    Perfect Does Not Exist...

    I don't want to be perfect. I think perfect would be boring at least what I think perfect is, I think it would be boring. And being perfect wouldn't make me who I am. I can sit here and tell others I am not perfect, I have a lot actually in my life. People don't understand...

    I'm by no means perfect,

    I swear sort of like a sailor instead of acting like a girl my age, I have self doubts, I'm insecure, I get discouraged easily, I'm the clumsiest person you will ever see, and I always let my emotions get the best of me. But I guess, by now I've probably learned to accept it. It...

    And You Know...

    I never claimed to be perfect. I never know the right thing to say. I venture a guess that none of us do, but the fundamental difference in what kind of a person you are is how you act when life is coming at you from all sides.

    Imperfect Me!

    I've made tons of stupid mistakes, and later I regretted them. And I've done it over and over again, thousands of times; a cycle of hollow joy and vicious self-hatred. But even so, every time I learned something about myself. I always find beauty in things that are odd and...

    I used to be a perfectionist...but not any more. It still lurks around the corner though...but I push it back whenever it gets too close. I sometimes see it playing peek-a-boo...like it's goading me to come out and play. But perfection doesn't play. It's a liar. Perfection and...

    How Can I Be - Not Be Here

    If I was perfect, there would not have been the need for me to be here in the first place. To be perfect, there cannot be an admission of the fact that one is perfect, as that would be an act of PRIDE. Pride does go before a fall, and that is a fact. We have seen the strong, high...

    I think its impossible to be perfect.

    What is perfect exactly? I think that all that matters is if you are happy with yourself then your prefect for yourself. You can't please every one and be perfect because then you would be a Barbie doll.

    Perfection Is A Myth

    To me perfect is defined by my own acceptance of myself. Since I am always improving and constantly changing who I am and who I want to be, I can never be truly perfect. It has never mattered to me what other people think of me, just what I thought of myself. Perfect is a word...

    Perfection Is A Goal Not An Achievement

    No matter how hard I stride

    for perfection, I will never be perfect. My grades aren't perfect, my friends aren't perfect, my family isn't perfect and my life isn't perfect. But I feel it would be better if nothing was perfect. 😃😃
