I Am Not Perfect, and Never Will Be

    This is why I try my hardest not to judge

    others, because it's not my right to judge others on their imperfections while I also have imperfections

    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. 😃😃

    Pfft I am totally, completely,

    utterly, and unquestionably infallible. Totally. Some people say perfection is overrated. I say to them: Oh yah? It's not like I'm sobbing in a corner trying to perfect every aspect of my life: criticizing every word, stroke of paint, or grade I do or get haha. Nope...

    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.

    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.

    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.

    I have a feeling that everyone is more perfect

    than me. I'm far from being perfect. Everytime I look in the mirror, I see a ugly face staring back at me. Does anyone else have the feeling that you're not good/perfect enough too?

    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 am far from perfect.

    I still have a lot to learn from life. I'm still growing. I will never know many mysteries of the world and that's something I'm okay with.

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    Making Mistakes and I Couldn't Care Less

    When l was younger l chased after the perfect me, but then l realized there is no such thing as perfection. l used to really beat myself up for making mistakes.  l now aim to be the best person l can be and if l make mistakes l learn from them and move on.

    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.
