    But Will Never Succeed...

    Try as I do one would think I would be at least much closer to perfect. However no matter what I do I don't think, well I know that, I will never reach perfection.  No one will.  SO why do I try so hard?  Because I am just programmed to try to be perfect.

    Did I Over Extend, Did I Leave Anything Out?

    If there was going to be a perfect person, what would they have to be like? Here's my starting point. Can you add to this? Should anything be removed?   A perfect person… …carries their own weight, pays their own fare, does their part as best they can...

    And I Hate It.

    When I was growing up, my older brother was a perfect child. He was smart as hell; he started reading at four years old. He was meek. He didn't throw rocks at people. My parents, especially my mother, always treated him slightly more favorably. Not significantly so, but enough to...

    When people tell me nobody is perfect. I take that as a challenge. I don't want to be your perfect person. I want to me MY perfect person. And I will get there

    So tired of jerks expecting perfect. But not giving any. They are why there is crime. And euthanizing fantasies. And tears shed.
