I Don't Look For Perfection In People

Appreciating people for who they are...imperfections and all. 810 People


    I don't understand why some look for perfection in other people. There's no point in searching for what doesn't exist! Besides, we are not perfect ourselves, so demanding such impossibilities from others is not fair. Some say love is perfect.. of course it isn't! It is said...

    Impossible.  Perfection is a characteristic that cannot be attained, no one is perfect.

    But I do a special kind When I give,

    it does not come with strings. I’m not keeping track of what you owe me. When I give, I choose to do so without ulterior motives. I give because I’m genuine. I give because I know what it’s like to be without. To long for and be ignored. To speak and not be heard. To care...

    Imperfection Is Beauty

        It is unwise to look for perfection on this earth for it does not exsist. But there is beauty in imperfection. People will be more at peace when they come to accept that.

    Not long ago, I had a discussion with a friend

    about my 'perfect girl'. Long story short, and edited for content, I tried to explain that when I was looking for the 'perfect girl' I did not necessarily mean that this person would literally be perfect…just perfect to me. They were more of the opinion that perfection was...

    Imperfect Perfection

    Nothing is perfect in this whole universe. Perfection belongs to God alone.My path of life has brought me to the understanding that this imperfection we have is what makes this world worth living. If every and each one of us know how to accept, appreciate and anticipate this...

    Beauty Is In Imperfection

    There is no such thing as perfection, thankfully What shared experiences would we have? what connections could we make?  how would we ascertain those who we hold dear and care for them?  Imperfections within us provide us with our empathy.  It is recognition of...

    Perfection is not human, as we all know. Why would we try to find it in others, knowing all too well that we are not at all (and as far as I'm concerned, that's just perfect). Sometimes, very once in a while, we're led to think that someone is perfect.  Could even be...

    Its Just Not There!

    Perfection is defined as without flaws or as good as can be. No one is either of those. Everyone has flaws, and if you have flaws you are not as good as can be. There are ways to make yourself better. I hate when someone says, "I'm waiting for the perfect man/woman." Because...

    Why Perfection?

    I think looking for perfection is a waste of time; why do it if no one's perfect you'll wind up empty and lonely. You'll either itimidate people or scare them away. I think looking for the best in people is way better and if your personalities dont go then leave it alone. Never...

    Who You Are Is Ok With Me

    I don't expect people to be perfect. In fact, I love the little quirks and "flaws" that make people who they are. So why do I feel like I have to be perfect? Why do I feel like everyone is judging me even if I'm not judging them?

    How can I look for perfection

    when I'm not perfect? No we are all here to learn and grow and be the best we can be to others.. Give service and love and joy. That's all that matters in this life. We can't take money and riches with us when we die.. We just take the memories and the love.
