Perfection Is In The Eye Of The Beholder

When you're young you've got a clean slate, no mistakes, no "record", your parent's tell you that you are wonderful and no matter what they will love you and find you to be a great addition to the human race. Society is less likely to find you so wonderful after they have viewed your report card.

When I started here I thought I was alright, I had made some errors but I was healing and working on myself and that's the most important thing, or so I thought. What I didn't know is that judgement is going to fly your way at every corner, daily you'll see something that would make a weak person fold and fade into obscurity. Do you do enough for men, are you a good enough parent, are you where you should be professionally, oh you aren't? Kill yourself. That's what they say. Don't have too many kids (especially by more than one father), make sure you have an ass, and above all else...what is your hair like? Does it meet the criteria?

It's not the people, it's not the people who are telling you what you need to fit into their perfect mold it's just society as a whole. I say that because truthfully some of the people who are insisting that we all fit this mold are more misshapen than others. It's sad really. I want to ask society, society....if you're so perfect, why don't you look in the mirror? How many rocks and chips are in your surface AND foundation? what kind of veneers and trainers are you using to portray this perfect persona? What I mean is, your ass has lumps in it too. Don't be so quick to pass judgement on the next person for being a work in progress. If you're feeling low the only thing you can do is try to be better than you were the day before. The only person you should be comparing yourself to is that person who YOU used to be, it doesn't matter what the woman in the cube next to you has done that you haven't. You're being the best version of yourself that you know how to be.

Oh, and you have some places where you could be a little more flat or smooth yourself, you're looking a little worn around the backside. :)
