HONEST IMPERFECTION: Stream of Consciousness Saturday (Perfection)

This week, Linda over at her Stream of Consciousness page has given us the word: PERFECTION as our prompt. Below lies my contribution: πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡πŸ‘‡ Hope that ye enjoy the read! πŸ™πŸ€žπŸ˜πŸ“–


Perfection is something we’re all lured into striving after from time to time but it’s overrated & unattainable. It sounds lovely & noble in theory but it’s a fool’s game and will surely let us down and disappoint us. The concept & possibility of perfection is sold to us every day on TV: YouTube; Facebook; Instagram etc. It’s impossible to get away from! The perfect house; body; outfit; hairstyle; friendships etc. It’s exhausting! I suppose there’s no such thing as perfection really, just doing your best to be better than you were yesterday & what’s right for you. Not what’s right for others or how society; friends or social media tells you to behave. It may not be perfect but it is honest and true! πŸ‘πŸ˜β€οΈ

    1. Absolutely Muri, I’ll take adequate any day! πŸ‘πŸ˜πŸ’― Strive for perfection but be kind with yourself when you don’t reach it! πŸ€— We’re all human and fallable after all!


  1. Perfection is a drug and I was fed it as a child with every single meal. My teachers pressed it into my palms with their A+ marks. But I was never good enough and I beat myself silly trying to make everyone proudβ€”to be the perfect daughter, student, friend, lover. I had withdrawals when I tried to give it up at 20, but now in my 40s I don’t feen for it like I used to. It’s still alluring, don’t get me wrong. If only I could reach some level of “perfect” all the worries/fears/sadness would be replaced with a golden star and only shiny happiness. But now I see the lie and run from it as hard as I can.

    1. It’s a very addictive & deceptively attractive drug Bridgette! πŸ’―πŸ’―πŸ‘πŸ‘ Yes indeed, Trying to keep up with society’s and other people’s ideas of perfection is bloody exhausting and utterly futile. Because we’ll keep falling short and will never be satisfied!
