I remember when I was in high school, there was a quote floating around the web that said “If nobody is perfect then I am Nobody” , I have always felt bothered by this quote, I have always felt that confidence is key but, it’s cheesy to keep saying that you are perfect. I believe that feeling perfect, promotes arrogance and pomposity which is the least perfect of all. I am baffled by those who live in this world believing they are superior to others, when they have nothing to show for their superiority. It just strips every good thing from them and makes them ugly.
Imperfection on the other hand is beauty, knowing that you are imperfect gives you drive, makes you strive to become better, makes you want to be accomplished. It reminds you that there are things you need to work on in order to become better. The beauty of imperfection is that it enhances the way you deal with people, it brightens your take on life. Waking up every morning knowing that you can change something about yourself today that will make you a better person, is the most exciting of all.
You do not aim to be perfect you aim to be better, not to become the most perfect person in the world but to become the best version of you. For, you is unique, and what makes you unique is your flaws, your awkwardness, your quirky personality, your weird interests, in all these imperfections there is a beauty, an insecurity that makes you attractive.A friend of mine once said “whenever I see something I do not like about myself, if I cannot change it I convince myself that it is a beauty mark” and that is exactly how we should feel towards anything we are not capable of changing about ourself.
Embrace your imperfection you are beautiful, embrace your beauty you are imperfect.
