Your imperfection is what makes you perfectly human, and abundantly lovable 3,783 People

    I was looking for a Faery photo

    for my Avatar and I found... gloss, slick, molded pictures of perfection and I thought.... Wherever I look we have created a hyper reality of perfection. Competition for who can capture the reddest sun, the best angle, the most spectacular shot. We read through magazines and...

    It Is The Flaws That Make The Beauty . . .

    This was requested anonymously.  I will respect that. She stood in line in front of me as we waited to check out our groceries.  It was clear she didn’t put much effort into her appearance before coming to the store.  Yoga pants, a loose t-shirt.  Her hair was pulled up in...

    Why I Have Issues With (Conventionally) Beautiful People.

    I talk about this subject a lot and people assume it's because I myself am not considered beautiful at all, but it goes deeper, I wanted to explain this. My mother was a beautiful woman when she was young: thin, Eastern European beauty, youthfull looking, you know the drill. It...

    I think that if everything was 'perfect' then it would all end up being revolved around one idea of perfection, making everything sameish. I think that things, and people, who are imperfect are beautiful because they are unique and there will never be another even remotely like...

    Behold, The beauty of imperfection is what

    makes everything unique & beautiful. Nothing in nature or mankind is 100%perfect & that is the beauty of imperfection. Everyone sees, or has a different perception of natural beauty & this is what makes the beauty of imperfection so unique.

    No one is perfect but

    when you accept someone for who they are that makes them perfect to you and it's a beautiful thing to see past imperfection an make that person perfect to you because you accept their flaws and everything else.

    Appearance Is An Illusion

    I do believe that it's our flaws that make us interesting.   Each of us is perfect in our own way of course, but it's the differences between us - our quirks and little extra bits and idiosyncrasies that make someone look twice or take the time to get to know us. ...

    Imperfection Is Perfection
