I am Imperfect

I’ve been accused many times of being Miss. Prim and Proper and being Ms. Perfectionist. They say that it’s admirable how I can bear any kind of situations with patience and humility. I hardly get annoyed also no matter how worse the circumstance is.

I always strive to do good things if not perfect ones. I try not to hurt people by struggling to be considerate with the feelings of others. My philosophy- I’d rather be hurt than to be the one who would cause pain.

But, the word imperfect is emblazoned all over me. I do wrong things and I caused pain to others. Sad but true.

Whenever a friend tells me that I am her inspiration, I just cringed in embarrassment. I don’t deserve to be considered as one because flaws are blatantly all over me. I live with dark blotches everyday of my life.

I say things which I don’t really mean and I do wrong things on impulse.

I am not perfect. I am not what people think I really am. I just know that I live everyday of my life with my soul.

I AM NOT PERFECT but I do seek to be one. I live with my imperfections and correct them every time I wake up bath in a promise of another chance. I am not perfect but the word is carved in my heart and soul… 


  1. Don't be too hard on yourself. No one is perfect, but if a friend tells you that you are her inspiration, you are doing a better job than most. There is a reason that she or he sees you as an inspiration.

    Remember that you can't see yourself as well as others see you, just like you can't see your house while you're standing inside it.

    All you can do is try your best, but aiming for perfection may be too hard for any person.

  2. Yeah, but aiming for perfection might just be the reason why we are having this journey called LIFE.
