Perfection Is A Murderess

by, Cassandra

There is no magic formula, diet, make-up, shampoo, number or piece of clothing that will change your point of view.

You will never reach perfect.

And, no, this isn't a putdown.

You will never reach perfect because perfect does not exist.

It is a lie, made to make you buy. It is a myth, meant to keep you reaching. It is a nightmare, that you will never wake from.

Not until you realize that perfection has nothing to do with life. It has nothing to do with you.

Perfection is a murderess. Ruthless and heartless, she chews you up and spits you out and you're left looking into a mirror yet another day, wondering why you're not perfect yet.

Here's a hint: You are flesh and bone. Skin and blood and life. You are real and real can never be perfect. Real is ever changing and moving and growing.

If you are perfect, you are dead.

No more striving for perfection. Instead, let's strive for health. Let's strive for life. Let's strive for love. Let's strive for happy.

It'll leave you feeling better than perfect ever could.
