Accepting My Own Imperfections

This story is going to be difficult to write. I am to the point where I don't want to relive the BS that pushed the issue buttons over and over. But I am looking at myself and seeing someone that has grown quite a bit, but has a long way to go, I feel.

What's funny about this perfection/imperfection dichotomy is that if we did not have imperfections, we would not have opportunities for soul growth. Yet it is that shadow self inside us that has NO compassion for us and LOVES to use our failings against us. Some of us manage to forgive ourselves and shut up that ego/Shadow side pretty easily. The rest of us, however, have troubles sometimes with that part of ourselves. All kinds of trouble, which I will not outline here as I have yet to get to bed, but I can tell it's gonna be one long road.
