I Know I'm Not Perfect

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 510 People

    I'm far from it. I have autism

    and asbergers syndrome. I'm too quiet, shy, sensitive, etcetera. But for some reason, I'm proud of myself. I've made it to junior year and I'll be a senior next year. I've overcome countless problems just like everyone else. Despite my social problems, I feel nothing can hold me...

    My vision of perfect was a different kind,

    mostly with enduring a stare at the mirror in front me, or handling to unzip my dress & show what I am to the world. Everyone tells me my idea of perfection is purely physical & that I shouldn't be whining about myself because I was a decent pretty while other girls my age aren...

    People tell you to kill the thing that's making

    you sad, the thing that's destroying you. So why do they get so mad when you try to kill yourself?

    I have boring brown eyes

    and weird curls, I have a weird sense of humor and a short temper. I know I'm not perfect but I'm me.

    Far From It

    But that's ok you don't have to be. It only took me until my 40s to learn this but I guess it better late than never! It's a gruelling treadmill, the strive for perfection, it truly is.

    So as long as I'm a human being

    and I'm not perfect, I'm able to say I'm having some growing pains. Because in order to sustain where you are once you made such a breakthrough that everyone is looking at you, now everyone is like, 'Ooh, is she gonna make a mistake?' Yes, I'm going to make a mistake. Yes, I'm...
