"Don't be perfect
Don't be what you think they want you to be
Be what you know you are
Don't look outside yourself for anything
It's all within.
A great reminder that being perfect won't make us happy, even though we may have been conditioned to believe otherwise. There is no perfect person and there is no perfect life.
When we try to be perfect, we reject who we are. As a result, we don't feel good about ourselves or maybe even ashamed. When we accept our imperfections, we embrace ourselves as we are. It doesn't mean that we stop growing or changing - we just don't withhold our love for ourselves until we reach some future state that may never arrive. We can feel good about ourselves right now and as a result, we become happier. ♥
