Every human being is a unique individual, yet most of us are trying to copy others, desiring to conform to a pattern, believing that we are not enough just the way we are. We are searching for perfection by imitating those ones who we consider special. We continuously compare ourselves to others, and as a result we never feel fulfilled and at peace with ourselves.
But the truth is that nobody is perfect. Everyone has flaws, and that is not bad at all. Flaws are actually what makes us human, individual beings with unique characteristics. Imagine everyone was perfect… how ugly would this world be? It would be a sheer monotony — the most boring place to live in.
The moment you compare yourself to others, you demean yourself in your own eyes, unable to recognize the uniqueness inherent in you. When you seek perfection, desiring to become different and special, you will always end up feeling disappointed, empty and unsatisfied — because you already deep down are the different and special being you are seeking to become. And the more you don’t embrace your flaws and accept yourself just the way you are, the more you fuel your inner battle against yourself, causing your psyche to be in a continuous state of anguish.
You are enough as you are — a unique expression of the universe. Not better than others, not worse than others, but unique in your own way.
