I Am Not Perfect

    I feel like everyone expects me to be.

    ..but I'm really not. And it's nice when people call me perfect but it just shows how little they know me. I don't want people to think I'm perfect. I want people to know how far away I am and accept me for my humanity cuz in all honesty I hate being fake and guarded... That life...

    And as I get older, I am more aware of just how

    imperfect I am. But at the same time, I beat myself up less over it.

    Shout out to all of you

    who have a sense of humor and don't take yourselves or this community too seriously! Unlike all those other insufferable, pretentious, negative, ignorant human beings

    I'M Like A Unicorn In A Church.

    I'm no where near perfect. I love the wrong guys, I cry all the time, I snort when I laugh, I eat way too many pickles, i don't have a filter, I talk in my sleep, and I say really inappropriate things at the worse times. But isn't that the beauty of people? How everyone is flawed...

    Crack pot! An elderly Chinese woman had

    two large pots, each hung on the ends of a pole which she carried Across her neck.. One of the pots had a crack in it while the other pot was perfect and always delivered a full portion of water. At the end of the long walks from the stream to the house, the cracked pot...

    Seeing all the happy cute couples

    I am a Christian. I am not perfect.

    No one can be. I still do things I regret and I would ask that others would forgive me.

    I'm in love with my best friend.

    The ultimate cliché; but it goes deeper than that. I don't want him as my partner, and he doesn't want me either. I don't want myself to become a significant part of his life. I care about him and his deep seated happiness more than I do about myself or anything else, but he...

    Society's definition of perfect has quickly

    Some people may look perfect

    or act perfect, but I believe that all people have their flaws, both big and small. Even the most beautiful or most cleansed people or even the most innocent of people have flaws.

    Anyone who thinks they are perfect is fooling

    only themselves. I also think imperfection has it's own attraction.

    I hate how in our society you are judged on

    every.little.thing. It's ridiculous that I can't be comfortable in my own skin anymore without being critiqued on every imperfection. I don't understand why we all strive for perfection when it's completely unachievable
