This world we live in is so far from being perfect. And yet, perfection is seemingly what most people strive for. We try to become what we think the most ideal version of us is. But yet, that idea varies from person to person. Your idea of the perfection may seem like hell to me, and vice versa.

It seems to be a universal theme to tear one another down when they do not meet our view of what perfection is. Who even came up with the idea of it all? Is it ingrained in us from the moment we are born?

How bright and beautiful it all seems when we are young. And then, as we grow, the "reality" that was made for us sets in. We force ourselves to fit into a mold that we hate. This mold didn't exist before we learned to be dissatisfied with how we were made. It came into existence when we thought we had to be a version of ourselves that was never meant to be.

And so this continues generation after generation. There are countless among humanity that push this idea of excellence. And yet, there are also those who realize that these impracticalities are never meant to be. These are the truth sayers of the world. They encourage us to look within ourselves, and help us understand that we are amazing the way we are.

We are ever growing and ever-changing. But who we are at this moment, who we are 10 years from now, who we have been since we took our first breath, these are all the ideal us. This is the concept that we must learn to understand. For if we do not love ourselves, how can we ever achieve anything in this world?
