What is perfecfection ? It’s being without flaw or defects, but that is not a human trait that is an object that has been created. Not one person or group in this world is ever perfect except perfect in their own way. There is always so much pressure to be perfect to what others perceive to be “Perfect”. Elder Cecil O. Samuelson suggests “Those suffering from perfectionism tend to be wonderful, contributing, and effective people, and yet may feel that no matter what they do, it is never enough.” In my opinion, perfect is being happy with who you are, to the eyes of yourself and no one else. Why is perfection so important in our world of imperfection?
Many people believe if they have the perfect body, perfect lives, or perfect personality that they will be loved and admired for just that, instead of loved and admired for being themselves; feeling unworthy. According to Brené Brown of University of Houston Graduate College of Social Work, “Perfectionism is the belief that if we live perfect, look perfect, and act perfect, we can minimize or avoid the pain of blame, judgment, and shame. ”
There is beauty in everyone, those that are kind and friendly, those that experience life in their own way, are perfect people.
Picasso is one of my favorite artists because his art is not perfect, meaning the shapes and sizes are not in perfect relation; however, they are perfect because he created something beautiful that is an expression of his creativity.
Therefore, no matter what you do in life, it’s how you live it that makes you perfect and perfection only is achieved by fulfilling your happiness of how you perceive your personal world.
