| | Accepting Imperfection
If procrastination is the theif of time, then perfectionism is his accompliace.
I read magazines and blogs and talk to people and sometimes I see that we are holding people up to tear them down. We celebrate the talent of famous actors and then tear them down for their every flaw.
Humans aren't perfect, thats what makes us special. We have the ability to grow and change and learn things. Even better, we can help each other along the way. If you go looking, you can always find a persons imperfections, but whats more special is thier gifts and talents.
My Eating Disorder is always telling me that I can never have relationships because I have failed to be perfect. Other people tell me, Im too sick for a relationship, no one would like to be with me because of Ed. I don't believe it. I used too but I don't anymore. No matter what happens, I'll never be perfect. Of course, some people will never realise this and seek to find the real life barbie. Im not her and Im glad. I realise now that Im special and unique and a hell of a lot of fun to be around. I am warm and affectionate, pretty and insightful. I don't have to be perfect to be loved, no one does. You don't have to be anything. Just be. So even though I am not perfect, I'm confident people will still like me because I do. Im loyal and kind and funny, maybe I still have my struggles but who doesn't. So stop looking for perfection and embrace your humanity. It will set you free.
