We are all imperfectly perfect and THAT is what makes each of us beautiful.
I’ll go first.
I can be a control freak and a perfectionist. My husband and I fight. I go every 10 days to get my chin and upper lip waxed. And I scream obscenities as my wax girl is doing her job. I crave and eat fatty foods when I’m sad. I have a short temper. I have a huge ego and have to manage it every single day to not take me over. I was in therapy for close to 20 years and still call my therapist when shit hits the fan. I get annoyed with my mom when she tells me what to do. I don’t tolerate less than excellent work. I can be demanding with my team. I have to work extra hard so as to NOT be a workaholic and get completely exhausted. And the list goes on and on.
So there you go. Imperfection. It may not be appealing to you but guess what? It sure as hell is a lot more exhausting to put on a front like everything is perfect. There is no such thing as perfect. And anyone who claims to have a perfect life and strives to maintain that image will eventually have to take that mask off. Or will be left all alone on their manufactured island.
And besides, beauty lies in imperfection. So there you have it.
What’s one thing about you that is REAL??
