The Definition of Perfection.

Updated on September 25, 2012

Depending how you're raised, you are conditioned to pursue a certain "perfection", a condition usually dictated by wants and needs of the opposite sex. You have to be sensitive but you can't be emotional, you have to be sexy but you can't be sexual, you have to have flaws but you have to be perfect, you have to have friends but you not supposed to see them, you have to be able to read minds but you can never assume. You have to be funny, but you have to be serious, but you can’t be too serious. You have to be dedicated to your work, but you have to be more dedicated to your relationship, but you can’t be too dedicated to your relationship. Perfection is just an evasive, seductive, worthless, time-consuming contradiction. It stresses us out to the point where we break down, and when we finally benefit from "perfection" we resent it. Because it’s all fake and it’s not real. It is the cold hard truth. The modern definition of perfection is acceptance, Scooby snacks for your ego. Well my ego's had too much "perfection" and now i'm sick. People can make themselves more sexy or buff and they can stuff their wallet...s all they want, I think perfection is only achieved by not being perfect at all. People can waste their lives at mind-dulling zombie jobs, they can "feel the burn" as they waste the sand of their hourglass pumping iron. If the brakes fail on your car, and you see the tree getting closer and closer. Is your perfection going to save you?

      I agree. We can never be perfect anyway, Ryan. We can try to improve ourselves, yes. but we can never please everyone, and not everyone is going to be satisfied...everyone has their own benchmarks on things. It is not good tearing our heads apart just to be perfect because we can never be. thought provoking!
