Unpopular Opinion:- Perfection isn't everything

As far as I'm concerned, the more we try to be perfect. The more... Well I for one get stressed and anxious about f***ing everything in my life up.

It's the imperfections that make us who we are too. And personally, I wouldn't change my imperfections for anyone or anything.
Imperfection has so much more personality and depth. I can't be friends with someone who hasn't made mistakes and I don't think I could ever love someone who wasn't a little bit broken. It just wouldn't be interesting.
Thanks. This made me remember a few words of Pema Chodron, worth repeating...

[i]As long as our orientation is toward perfection or success, we will never learn about unconditional friendship with ourselves, nor will we find compassion..... we think that the point is to pass the test or overcome the problem, but the truth is that things don't really get solved. They come together and they fall apart. Then they come together again and fall apart again. It's just like that. The healing comes from letting there be room for all of this to happen: room for grief, for relief, for misery, for joy.[/i]
Perfection is vastly overrated!

I was once a perfectionist but never had the talent for it.
