Imperfectly Flawless

barbie

All everyone wants these days is to be perfect. Why? Because society has brainwashed us into thinking that if you don’t live up the standards of what society thinks is “perfect” – that you’re not good enough. That you’re not beautiful. Or that you don’t belong. Society promotes the idea that in order to be “perfect”, you need to have a clear, acne free face. That you have to have a skinny waist and a thigh gap. That it’s not okay to have flaws. Or that you have to wear lots of make up to even be considered pretty. And because of those ideas, there are girls who STRIVE to be looked at as “perfect” and will do anything to obtain that image. Some will even damage their health in order to achieve it.

Society is sending out the wrong message. The message that should be broadcasted, is that there is no such thing as perfect. That it’s okay to have flaws. That your flaws are what make you beautiful. Why? Because it’s perfectly normal, and all humans have flaws. I think it’s important to accept and love your flaws because how will you ever learn to accept and love yourself if you can’t? Your imperfections are what make you beautiful. And the sooner you accept all your imperfections, the happier you’ll be. How do I know that? Because I, recently, have come to accept the fact that I’m not perfect and that its okay to have flaws, and that everyone has them. I now have more acceptance towards myself than I ever have before.

I am imperfectly flawless.

  1. Its sad that people dont accept other people as “part of society” just because they arent their definition of perfect. People always go on about the world being a horrible place yet they do nothing to help the people who get pushed aside just for the way they are. I too think its about time people accepted others for who they are x

    Well said ! There is no such thing as ‘perfect’ and girls these days are striving to achieve what doesn’t exist. And there’s also no such thing as a perfect figure or a perfect face. We’re all just ‘work in progress’ 😀
    We’re all just ‘imperfectly flawless’ 😀

    Nice.

    I once asked a professor of the psychology of eating what would be the best of tackling eating disorders. He said ”ban the magazines”. Next best thing is don’t buy or look at them.
