Setting expectations for people (including ourselves) to be perfect, is setting us all up for failure. We all have that family member, co-worker, friend or acquaintance that appears to be more than we can ever be; perfect. The reality is that everyone makes mistakes, changes, stumbles and grows through life. Setting up a human being to be perfect creates inevitable failure.
Instead of putting people on a pedestal or encouraging anyone to have an exaggerated view of you, offer mutual support, while being responsible for your own self-growth.
Beautiful Imperfections: Seeing the beauty of things flawed, including ourselves and others, opens space for forgiveness, acceptance and love. This love can lead to a deeper satisfaction with life with more meaning and fulfillment.
