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.
