The perfect life, the perfect looks and the perfect family.
All of these things sound pretty good, right? Aren’t these things that we all strive for? I mean, don’t people grow up wanting to be presidents and world leaders. It was taught that practice makes perfect and anything short of perfection was not acceptable. I believe perfection is a goal that is not obtainable. Once you reach the sky, there is still more to achieve.
Celebrities, athletes, musicians, are all looked up to and adored. They life a life that many want and desire to have. These groups of people in the higher anarchy of life are considered perfect to many. Even though they are considered perfect, it still doesn’t mean that they are perfect and I am sure many feel that they aren’t. There are numerous celebrities who are talented, but not perfect. Someone may be a good singer, but they aren’t perfect. They just have a little more talent than someone else. Even pitching a perfect game in baseball isn’t perfect. It just means on that certain day you were able to pitch a good game without allowing a hit, not much perfect about that.
The word perfect is just a lie. Nothing ever, ever, ever will be perfect. Getting a 100 on a test and having a 4.0 GPA is wonderful and all, but it isn’t perfect. It just means that you put time and dedication into school and you are rewarded for it by getting good grades. Does it mean that you are better than anyone else, nope. It means that you might know more about what you studied, but still nowhere near perfect, it doesn’t make you the perfect student. It means that you and that same person who dropped out of high school both watch the same sunrise in the morning and the same sunset at night. Both still people in the same world, but one may be stronger in certain aspects in life than another and it doesn’t make them any more perfect or better of a person.
Perfection will never be achieved. I’m sorry, it’s just true.
Instead of worrying about being perfect, worry about being happy and being the best person that you can be. Worry about helping others and helping them become happy and become a better person, that is something that perfection can never do.
