Imperfectly Perfect World
Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius…Marilyn Monroe
Hello there beautiful people, how is life treating you, long time no post, pardon my inconsistency lovelies, henceforth I’ll try to make it a post per week.
I remember the scene from Game of Thrones where Peter Dinklage said ‘Wear your flaw like an armor and it can never be used against you.’ He was right. Everyone has flaws, flaws are cracks in our physical appearances or character (Andrew 2013). Either way, it’s hard dealing with the insecurities, frustration and vulnerability caused by the continuous intimidation that comes from the knowledge of a flaw.
I grew up with the worse case of insecurity, the reclusive shame and bitterness that came with the knowledge of my imperfection left me wondering why the next person didn’t have any, forgetting to realize that the person beside me had their own flaw i knew nothing about, forgetting that those individual flaws we had made us stand out, i do not want to go into specifics here. The point is, I’m not perfect, no one is, no one can attain that in a million years because no one really gets a billion dollars, a beautiful wife, immortality, kids and love in one lifetime, perfection is one of those things that could be but shouldn’t because the day we become perfect, we become absolutely bored.
God is perfect, i’m guessing that is why he’s the Champion of Heaven, he’s perfect in all his ways, he’s not Human, we are, and honestly, we are ONLY human, it means we are bound to make mistakes once in a while, it’s our nature to be imperfect.
The essence of this to reassure you that you will get past this, the low self esteem or inferiority complex will pass. It is what you believe about yourself others will believe, it is you who will carve the world to suit your taste. Identify your flaws (I’m sure we all have), Accept it. Yes, i have knock-knees that make me look like a chicken but hey, i have knock-knees, what do you have? I’m pretty sure knock beats straight…Accept it, let it come as a compliment not an insult.
God, grant me the serenity to accept the things i cannot change, the courage to change the things i can, and the wisdom to know the difference…Reinhold Neibuhr [This kinda comes in handy for this].
You cannot change it so you have to deal with it. It makes you absolutely unique, God knew you would make it work, prove him right. Flaws are overwhelming, minor or major they affect us terribly. I recently discovered that procrastination is a character flaw, Like i said earlier, i do not want to go into identifying typical flaws because i believe you know what unique imperfection you have learnt to deal with.
Procrastination is a sign of weakness…MMB
The world is dramatically imperfect. Haven’t you sat in the park or in the mall once and noticed the beautiful imperfectly perfect people walking past? We are all perfect in a unique way, it isn’t a flaw lovelies, it’s a whole other type of perfect. Dump the low self-esteem and anger and rock your imperfect beauty.
