I’ve tried being perfect for too long
It’s fulfilling; but it’s exhausting for the body and soul
The approval and affection is an addiction
BUT. But the spirit feels chained and gnawed!
And when the spirit breaks the chains of Perfection
The flaws begin to surface, they appear monstrous
BUT. But something in me felt free…
Free to be judged, accepted, loved or abhorred.
Free to be me. The unabridged-imperfect me.
Making mistakes is better than being imprisoned by perfection!
You cannot expand a perfect person
But, the flawed person has so much to learn, improve and explore!
AND, once you learn to love and live with the flawed you
You will be surprised that you still have the affection 🙂
Mind your wings
