I知 sorry to be the one to tell you, but you値l never be perfect. I値l let that sink in for a minute. It痴 nothing against you personally and it痴 nothing in my favor. In fact, none of us will ever be perfect no matter what shampoo or body spray we use. No matter how our body looks in a swimsuit and certainly no matter how our boyfriend says we make him feel. Perfection is simply unobtainable, and here痴 why.

Perfect Is an Ending Place

To say something is perfect is to stay that it has reached the absolute pinnacle of all it ever can be. Perfection is the goal, it痴 the finish line - it痴 the ending place. So that means if you reach a state of perfection before the day you池e dying, you have a big problem. The rest of your life is pretty meaningless since you already have the grand prize. Can smaller things be perfect? Absolutely. I had the perfect afternoon last week the weather was wonderful and so was the company. Did that make me perfect? Nope. And it痴 a good thing.

If I were already perfect, I wouldn稚 have anything to work toward, no room to grow and no sense in changing over the years to find new avenues to explore and grow in. We might strive for perfection, but we should never get there or you池e just not working hard enough to grow and change.

Perfect Is Different Every Day

Grab a handful of teen fashion magazines and read the covers. It痴 likely you値l see the word 菟erfect on those covers at least once. It痴 because those savvy magazine editors know that we like to try and reach perfection. They are planting seeds in our minds that by doing this particular style of sit-up we値l have 撤erfect Beach Abs or by wearing a particular style of prom dress we can guarantee ourselves a 撤erfect Night of Romance.

My question is this how can a magazine editor have any idea what a perfect night of romance is? She might be closer to having a real idea about the perfect abs, but even there, I知 reasonably sure there are many different versions of a flat tummy that would qualify as perfect. Picture yourself as that little lab mouse in a maze trying to reach perfection. Every new edition of the magazine, someone is moving the prize someplace else guaranteeing you never reach the end of the maze or get your reward.

Perfection Is Draining

Have you ever tried being 鍍he perfect friend or 鍍he perfect daughter? It痴 exhausting! Here痴 why when you池e working hard to do everything right, you池e not allowing yourself to be who you really are. You池e playing a part all of the time. Some of that act might be real for you, but there are always parts of us that don稚 fit a mold and those are what make us special and unique. To squash down the parts of you you池e afraid might not fit your projected image will wear you out and ultimately make you resentful for feeling like you have to hide. Don稚 worry about being perfect you値l never be able to keep up the act forever. Worry instead about letting your best face shine through and using your special skills to make the world a better place in some way.

To be honest, perfection is boring. Besides, you don't learn anything from being perfect.

1. You are fat. You will always be fat. You can never reach ZERO. Your eating disorder will win.

2. You will always be chained to yourself. Once you realize this, you will never be happy.

3. If these thoughts interest you for even a moment you are lost.

Forget 'perfect'. Trying to be 'enough' is hard as it is xD

I don't think I've ever come close to perfect. Though I would just LOVE to have that shirt with the saying that:

I'm so close to perfect that it scares me.

Great shirt, and my husband thinks I need one too, though his is on a more sarcastic level

I highly disagree that we are all the same...I believe the exact opposite. Everyone has their own views on perfection, and I couldn't care less what anyone thinks of me anyways. I only care about what I think of myself.
