I Am Not Perfect

    I believe that imperfections are what makes us

    perfect. We all go though hardships and moments that expose our imperfect qualities but at the end of the day it's about how you see yourself and understanding that your perfect the way you are as a individual rather than the expectations of the reality the world makes you to...

    I've never been one

    that chases after another person. I've always felt if someone cares about me  and values my friendship then they will stay. They will make the effort where I am concerned and I will also make the effort where they are concern because it's the right thing to do if I am...

    I'm so tired of my mother not accepting me

    for who I am and who I've become. I gain a little weight, she tells me to lose it, or "are your pants getting tight?". I'm tired of her judging how I live my life. I DO NOT DRINK. I have chosen that path and I do not see any problem with it. This world, or should I say country...

    What do you do when you start questioning your

    religion? I've been Christian all of my life and I know in my heart that God does exist but sometimes I just don't understand what kind of God allows the travesty that the world goes through. What kind of God allows a child to be hurt by her own family members. I hate going to...

    I am not perfect, and he is not perfect,

    but we are living our lives day by day, and we stand tall in front of the people who envy us, and gets jealous of who we are.

    I have been told I am beautiful.

    .. Lovely... Gorgeous... Sexy... But what people don't realize is I am not the perfect woman they tend to put on a pedestal... I have issues... Body issues... Emotional issues.... Repressed issues I never share... This facade you see is a facade ... The laugh you hear may be a...

    I am not perfect.. sometimes I let myself down.

    . and sometimes I let other persons down. There are times in life when being your own self could hurt some others.. and if that ever happens.. with or without my intention.. I do want to say sorry. Forgive me, please. The imperfectionist, me

    I spent a long time chasing perfection,

    I was never quite good enough, I was never quite there. I've learned perfectos is a moving target, it's impossible to reach and I am much happier being imperfectly perfect in every way!!!

    Even the most beautiful people have ugly

    moments. You never know what is going on in that person's life behind closed doors that is causing them to act or respond the way they do at times. Don't be so quick to assume, judge, gossip, and say hurtful things about them.

    I've had the shittiest evening; quite literally.

    I guess my dog got really, really sick while I was at work and decided to take the opportunity to pay me back for getting his nads snipped - by redecorating my carpets a darker shade of brown. After my house looked like a fkn quarantine zone, I bet my neighborhood phone tree...

    I don't feel like I belong here. My mom is always threatening to kick me out and I'd have nowhere to go. The only time I'm happy is when I'm stoned. I just hate living.

    I'm not perfect. But do we truly know the
