    Everyone says its ok to be imperfect

    when they judge you behind your back for being imperfect. They say that it will all go away when it won't. They say it will all stop once things get better. They say the darkness will go away once you turn on the light. No, it won't.

    I'm just done, all right? Now I'm a nice person. I'm not unscrupulous or anything, but I'm just done. Why the hell do I have to be perfect for people? I wanna be ME. Unfortunately I STILL can't be me because of my consideration for others. If I think someone has said something...

    I am perfect for the benefit

    for myself which gives me a boost in motivation and self esteem. A lot of people would rather me do something else but I write the story of my life not them. You shouldn't have someone so your work for you.
