I’m not perfect, but who cares really?
Everyday you either do or you don’t do something that causes you not to be perfect. Whether it’s not helping a person out fully, getting angry at someone or no understanding something that causes confusion, the simple fact of the matter is you’re not going to be perfect. You know what though? Life isn’t about being perfect. It’s about living each day doing the best you can for yourself, your family, your friends and for the world. I think I’m quite alright not being perfect and I don’t think I should care too much what others think of that.
For me, packing and moving takes a lot out of me. It makes me cranky. It makes me easily upset. I often times just want it done so we can move on and unpack already. Everytime I’ve had to make a move I’ve hurried through the process and I didn’t organize everything correctly. Ask Krista.. it’s taken some time to even find all of our things. In that sense I wasn’t perfect at all and I’ve been fairly grumpy throughout the packing process. It’s just not something that I enjoy. However, what I’ve come to realize is that you need to look at the end destination for some of these things. Sure it’s a lot of hard work to get everything packed but when you do get everything organized and ready to go it will be so great to have everything you need in the new apartments.
Think about other aspects you deal with on a daily basis. How about at work? How many times have you messed something up at work? I get that some jobs there’s not a lot of leeway for mistakes but most jobs are ok with you making some mistakes now and then. It’s about how you react to the mistakes and how you prevent them from happening again that is the most important thing. It’s not about being perfect, it’s about learning and trying to better yourself as an employee.
In my relationship with Krista, we have arguments. Sometimes it’s really stupid things that I just tend to not hear or remember. I’m not perfect in this regard but I try my hardest to take in everything and improve myself. That’s what a relationship is about and that’s what keeps couples together: their willingness to accept each other’s imperfections and keep moving forward towards their common goals when they get married.
I think if I were perfect I would be a pretty boring person (one can say I already am though ). If you never made mistakes, how would you learn life lessons? How would you be able to react and be an adaptive person. I honestly think it’s great that I’m not perfect. I think it’s great that everyone else isn’t perfect either. We all are unique and deal with very different problems. It makes us into how we interact as a society. We fill the gaps of people’s weaknesses so that we as a group get stronger.
So the next time you are really getting down about yourself about not being perfect I’d like you to remember first of all that you’re not ever going to be perfect. That being said, remember that it’s not about being right all the time. It’s about enjoying what life throws at you and fighting through it all. That’s where real strength comes in and that’s what it’s all about.
