Understanding Life • Perfection Is Imperfection

“What society won’t tell you is that perfection is imperfection, and imperfection is perfect.”

For our entire lives, we’ve been taught to seek perfection.

We’ve been taught to seek a flawless, effortless, and unbroken life.

But what is perfection?

Perfection is when you see crooked teeth beyond the gap of their smile. It’s the scar on your arm from the time you fell out of a tree at age 8. It’s the way you hold your fork the wrong way, the song you only listen to when alone, and the foolish phobia you’ve hidden for so long.

It’s the way your mom’s voice echoes through the house around dinner, and your family bickers on Christmas morning. It’s when someone stutters amongst excitement, and the times you fall asleep, mid-sentence on the phone.

It’s the way you snore in your sleep as you dream of perfection, but what society won’t tell you is that perfection is imperfection, and imperfection is perfect.
