One thing that I’ve always thought about growing up was reasons why I had to be perfect and the same as everybody else and until recently it’s that I’ve realised that’s not the case.
Everyone has they’re own idea of ‘perfect’ in their head and I think we all need to come through to the idea that no matter how hard we wish, work or try that might not ever happen and that’s okay.
It’s okay to be different to others and to have you’re own flaws and quirks, some people might find them quite and if they don’t, fuck them. Just try and be happy with yourself because as soon as you start believing that it’s okay not to be perfect, the better. No matter who you want to impress even if it’s a partner.
You never know, you might be someones idea of perfect as you are now, in a onesie, easting subway, watching gilmore girls in bed at 6pm on a Saturday evening. No just me doing that tonight? Perfect Saturday night in my opinion.
There’s so many people out there in the world that as soon as I see what they’re doing on Instagram, Twitter and what not I wish that was me. I can’t help it it’s my biggest flaw because my idea of perfection is basically the complete opposite of myself. I fell like in a way that’s what all of our ideas of perfections are.
Even though I said no matter how hard we try we’ll never be out idea of perfect we can get close enough if you really wanted to. For all these years I’ve been trying to be perfect but not the perfect that I actually desired, the type I was searching for was to be what I thought everybody else ‘perfect’ was and that was my fault.
Now I’ve booked my tattoo (shock horror, a ‘perfect’ girl wouldn’t have those,) got more ear piercings than the basic lobe (what?!) I’ve even booked my first solo trip into the big wide world, e.g., Valencia. Because of all of this I feel like I’m a lot happier (scared) and closer to my idea of perfect.
But nobody is, no matter how close I will be to my ‘perfect’ I will always have my flaws, imperfections and that’s okay because we all do.
I guess what I’m trying to say is that don’t worry that you’re not perfect to you because to someone out there, you’re perfect to them.
