I like to be my imperfect self. It takes a load off my shoulders! Trying to be perfect all the time is major work. I did try to be so, for most of my life. But at age 21, I gave up... best decision ever! :-D
Now, I can really focus on the things that I WANT TO change and not...
If i was perfect then everyone would want to know how i achieved such perfection and that's not any kind of attention i want. I live by the rule that i can always improve something about myself, my life, or the way i interact in this world.
I set my standards in my life extremely high - so high that I never met them.
I now know that I would never, ever expect my friends to be that perfect; why am I forcing this on myself?
I am so glad that I am not perfect.
