We are flawed - but is that wrong?

We as humans are naturally flawed and imperfect, and therein lies one of our greatest weakness. The mentality of the human conscience to see only what we feel is one of our greatest blights. It limits our progression and ability to achieve a higher purpose by placing mental barriers before us. Furthermore, not only does it stop us from doing what we can achieve, but it changes how we view ourselves.
   Having doubts about yourself or life is a very natural thing, somewhat expected even. However, when those doubts are fed with to much consideration they can suddenly become real impairments within our minds. Looking into the mirror, you begin to forget the things about yourself that you love, and suddenly view yourself only as you feel you should.
   You become so focused on how the world sees you that you forget how very little their opinion actually matters. Because in the end you will never be able to please everyone, no matter how hard you try. The only objective you will achieve is crushing yourself along with any talents and charms that you (knowingly, or unknowingly) already possessed.
    You are not a doll, to be approved of at every turn. You are not going to be perfect, so why are you trying to be? Flaws are the paraphernalia of life. They make us who we are, just as much as our talents and abilities do.


  1. Thanks for sharing! I often feel like our flaws make us who we are--without them we are just one dimensional creatures.

  2. Excellent thinking! Certainly worth a read! Also, your blog's layout is so awesome, wish I could steal that :(

  3. Wow. "We are not dolls." So true.

    have you, by any chance, heard the song Flaws by Bastille? If you haven't, you should!
    I agree with you that flaws are the paraphernalia of life, I've never thought about it that way...
    thanks for sharing :)

  6. Wow. This is so right. Just need to take a moment to reflect. wow.

  7. Flaws by Bastille was the first thing I thought of after reading this as well :)
    I love how short and true that piece was, it's very effective.

  8. All I can say after reading this is wow. Just wow.
