My Own Perfect Life

Updated on August 13, 2013

Trying to Be the Perfect Man

Everyone knows there is no such thing as someone being perfect, except only one and that is of course Our Lord, Our God. Only if we could all be just like him, it would be wonderful, but impossible as we all know.

I was always told by many people including my wife that if I would just stop drinking alcohol I would be just about perfect. This one addiction to alcohol stood in my way of my own perfect life.

Everyone has faults, bad habits and many things that makes us not perfect, but we can change these bad habit, faults and all those things that makes us not the perfect person. We can try to change the way we live and the way we abuse things such drugs and alcohol and begin to at least head in the right direction of perfection.

As I said in other hubs, October 2009 I started my new life and worked towards my own perfect life as one would call it. It was a lot of hard work, determination, and strength to overcome my alcohol addiction, but I did it and darn proud of it.

Now, being clean and sober I was one more step towards being the perfect man many people said I could be if only I didn't drink alcohol. So, am I a perfect person? No, I still am not the perfect person ever though I quit drinking alcohol, but in my eyes and the people around me think and say I am darn close, but as I said none of us will ever be that perfect person no matter what we do or how we live, we will never be absolutely perfect, but than again there is no harm giving it your all to at least try to be perfect or close to it.

Feeling like Your Perfect

Feeling like I am perfect now being clean and sober may sound silly to many of you, but in my eyes, I feel that becoming clean and sober makes me pretty darn close to perfection, only to me that is. I don't want to sound stuck up or coincided, so don't get me wrong here.

I think in my eyes I deserve the title to myself of now being that perfect man. I worked long and hard to get out of the horrible addiction I had and now I must reward myself with this title of perfection.

Alcohol Held Me Back

Anyone can have a almost perfect life if you try hard to help yourself towards perfection. You will never get perfection in your life 100 percent, but just being real close to it is a real accomplishment, at least it was for me.

I always wanted to be just about perfect, but the addiction to alcohol held me back from accomplishing and living in the perfect world we all would love to live in.

Life is great now and it can be for anyone who wants better in their lives and overcome any addiction or bad habits you might be experiencing in your life now. Just give it a try and see if you too can have a perfect life in the eyes of yourself.

I did the unthinkable when I surrendered too my alcohol addiction. I never thought in a million years I would ever see Sobriety back into my life again, but I proved myself wrong and beat the addiction I carried around with me for many many years.

Peace and Perfection at Last
