And I Don’t Try To BeWhy bother trying to be perfect? First, I don’t know exactly what can be considered perfect and I doubt someone does. See, perfect, like beauty and success, is such an abstract thing. No one really know definite standards of being perfect. Everyone has his own definition of perfect and that definition would keep changing. As remarkable as “perfect” sound, trying to be someone that you don’t have clear idea is, that just exhausting and not to mention confusing, and you never will be. Beside, from social point of view, being perfect is such a burden. Just like that shiny expensive Lamborghini, its maintenance alone would give you a lot of headaches.
And people are still gonna hate you anyway, no scratch that, people would hate you even more. Lets be honest now, if we meet someone that appears so perfect and flawless and lead such amazingly perfect life, we either (a) wonder if this person really human, Stepford Wives/Husbands perhaps? or (b) suspiciously thinking that he is fake, or most likely (c) irritably jealous and hate him and possibly hoping to find some defects out of him and laugh at it in his face . So why would I put myself into that?
We all know the saying “nobody is perfect, until you find someone that you love.” Don’t read it wrong, its not being perfect that make you loved, but people who love you would love your imperfection too and still find you great. So instead trying so hard being perfect, I choose to make people comfortable enough around me, and make sure I’m the person that they can trust to not hurt them. Its not perfect persona that make you happy, lovable, and successful, its how you deal with your flaws and learn from mistakes. After all, flaws and mistakes are what make us can grow as a person.
