    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...

    its the main reason why i never judge others,

    cos what people dont seem to understand is that for every person that you judge for any reason at all, that very person, if they were honest, could turn round to you and point out various aspects of your own life that you dont exactly have in order!!

    I am not perfect. But I try to do my best at

    anything I do. People may not agree with me or like what I do. But I'm being me. If a person can't accept it I do not expect it.

    At least I've come to understand

    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 hate when people tell Other people they're

    perfect. Because they're not. Nobody is, you may not be happy with your body? But guess what. Nobody is, I remember going through a list on things I want to change about my body, I said "once these happen I won't gripe again." But guess what? I still wasn't happy, and I never...

    I'm not perfect and never will be .

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

    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 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.

    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...

    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.

    Why can't I accept this?

    Oh I know, because my mother decided to punish me for every mistake I ever made. I'm a perfectionist and it ruined my life.

    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'm not perfect, nor do I try to be

    because that goal is impossible to achieve. I've done bad ****, in fact I am some bad news altogether but I'm still trying to better myself and such. I guess I'll attempt to become a better role model for myself and others around me. ^~^

    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...

    perfect. I know there is no such thing as perfect. That does not make life easier though. We strive to be perfect, to be the best, to do everything right the first time, every time. This is insane but it is true. Then, when everything falls apart we feel like we have failed and...
