    For as long as I can remember guys have taken

    advantage of me. Knew I was weak. I'm a push over at heart. Once guys get to know me they use that to their advantage. I can't tell you how many times I've been in a position where I needed a guys permission to do something or get something from them and they knew it. And made...

    I don't want to be perfect,

    I want to be happy. Sometimes that seems just as hard but I at least know that happiness exists. Perfection can't. I'd rather have a crooked smile than a perfect frown any day.

    I'm not perfect and never will be .

    .. I use to beat myself up and cry myself to sleep, I even contemplated suicide but the Holy Spirit inside me rose up and Jesus came and showed his love on me and I knew I would never be perfect. I stopped trying. But you don't have to lose hope because god loves you and he wants...

    I called my mom out on this one time.

    I said, "Mom, you want perfect kids." She looked at me, shrugged, and said, "Welllll..." Her expectations are too high.

    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...

    Is there such thing as perfect?

    Really? I will take the imperfect one. The one that is a little different, well it's perfect to me. How would I describe "perfect" ... first I would assume whatever it is lacks originality and is a dime a dozen, boring, standard issue, no surprises, same every time, nothing...

    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.

    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...

    Flesh And Bone

    Sometimes I am very spontaneous and I can be a bit “crazy”. In that moment, the joy of “sin” gets me and it is so nice not to be divine.  Covering myself with humanity fascinates me, it brings me closer to “heaven” and I like being on earth even more. I know some...

    I have always tried to be perfect,

    but never will be. Everyone expects me to do everything right. I accidentally do one thing wrong and they all yell at me. I don't know what to do. I can't concentrate on anything anymore.

    that I don't need to meet other peoples expectations or perceptions. Life isn't perfect & I'm a part of it. Which is a fact & not a failure. Not achieving perfection is fine, everyone makes mistakes. I'm learning to let go of unrealistic expectations & to just live ! No, it's...

    I cut and get depressed.

    I wish I didn't but I do. I've been crying this past week and I don't even know why. But normally when I have problems I listen to music but now I found myself reading books. Ohh how I wish I can trust people. I just wish stuff really happened from books.

    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...

    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...

    My dad is sort of strange.

    He spends 2 hours every night watering his plants and making sure they are "healthy." That is more time than he spends with me all week. I asked him one time if he loved his plants more than his children, he said "I love you both equally, but plants don't talk back."

    I am not fit or slim. I am not pretty, I am not really talented. I am not rich. I am not perfect, and never will be. Thank god for that. Where's the fun in that? We are humans we make mistakes. It makes us unique. So what if I can't speak perfect English and at times I break...

    My parents don't think so.

    .. I think that's their goal, to have a perfect kid. I won't regret letting them down when I'm older and working as a maid. Their standards for me are too damn high.

    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.
