Flaws! We all have flaws; every single one of us. However, most, if not all of us, want perfection; but really, what’s the joy in perfection?
The reason I like imperfections is especially because of what the above picture says 👆. Imperfection is real. With social media and all technology going on, we get to show people only the ‘perfect’ side of us that we want them to see. It’s why there’s so much shallow conversation and relations amongst people today. Why don’t we show people the real imperfect version of ourselves? That’s beautiful. That’s captivating. That’s real!
I don’t mean to sound mean, but perfect is fake. It’s unreal. It’s just ‘too good to be true ‘. Nobody is perfect. We’re all flawed ; that’s just how it is, but flawed is beautiful. Flawed is deep. It’s the real deal. Don’t try to cover up your flaws. Embrace, and love them. They make you who you are, and they make you different. Love Your Flaws!
Yea well, if you wanna be perfect, then be flawed 😂. That’s just it! There’s so much beauty in someone who knows that they are weird or flawed, and they own it. They don’t care what anyone thinks, and they don’t try to change themselves for anybody else. In some weird way, it’s sort of PERFECT!
Don’t constantly compare yourself to others. Don’t look at other people and think, “Man! I wish I was like him / her. “ Like I mentioned, many people only show you the side of you that they want you to see.. The ‘perfect’ side. Truth is, many people actually want to be like you too, but they’ll never tell you. Don’t try too hard. Forget what the last part of the picture said, no one’s truly perfect; but our imperfections, are what make us perfect!
I read a really nice blog post yesterday by a friend of mine. She was talking about how loyalty is not determined by familiar faces. She said that, not everyone in your boat 🚣 is rowing / paddling with you; some are very busy drilling holes to make you sink. If you don’t own your flaws, people will totally use them against you, and try to get you down. Not everyone is on your side. No! So, own your flaws, and love them to a point that no-one can make you feel terrible about them.
Your flaws don’t define you. Yes, they make you, but they don’t define you. Your flaws, intertwined together with each other, and other ‘perfect’ and beautiful parts of you, are what make you who you are. You can make good out of everything that you hate about yourself. You probably can’t take one flaw separately and do anything with it 😂, but once you accept them, you can be the better version of yourself. You can give your all in everything that you do without feeling inadequate. Own your flaws; don’t let your flaws own you!
Yes! 👏. One of the best things I ever did in my life was accept my flaws. It’s great to just mess up sometimes, to be imperfect, to be human, to just be you! That’s just it. It’s what makes life interesting. What’s the fun in perfection? Be flawed, and be happy about it. Love you, just as you are.
I love this! Do you ever sit down and think, “Jesus Christ died for me! “ Can you imagine that? Despite your flaws, despite every single imperfection you feel that you have, you are worthy, and He died for you. Never forget that!
I wish I could say more, but truth is, the picture has literally said it all 👏!
The process of finally accepting your quirky, flawed self can be pretty hard. Society is gonna tell you that you shouldn’t be flawed, you shouldn’t be different, you should ‘fit in’, you should be ‘perfect’. It can be hard to just be comfortable in your own skin, but hang on in there; because once you finally learn to live your life unchained by what society expects, you’ll be truly happy!
I like real talk with people, real vibe, real connection, I mean, c’mon, don’t we all? Not the ‘sugarcoated’ version of ourselves that we try to paint; the real version. The true version. That’s what we all want, right? That’s exactly how it should be! Don’t you think?
Love makes the world go round. Of course we have to talk about love 😍, right? 😂 Anyway, let the person you choose to spend the rest of your life with, love you for who you are. If you create a ‘perfect’ version of yourself that they do eventually fall in love with, it won’t be long before you get comfortable with them and show them who you really are. Problem is, they may be in love with the illusion of you that you made them believe, and not you. Show who you really are, and let that special someone love you just as you are; flaws, imperfection, just you being you 💯. Likewise, you return the favor, and love them too for exactly who they are.
While we’re at this, here are a few things to always keep in mind 👇 :
Take note of those things and don’t you dare forget them! 👆
So, all I’m trying to say is:
Accept and love yourself. I always insist, don’t do something morally wrong or illegal or anything that you know deep down you shouldn’t do, and claim that you’re ‘being you, or accepting yourself ; flaws and all’ . No. That’s not how it works. Be a good person and do right; and as you do that, remember to be yourself, love yourself and value yourself.
Now, as cliche as this may be, never forget to 👇 :
Just Be You. Always.
Have a lovely weekend! 😊💕
