It is commonly said that “Nobody is Perfect,” so nobody can be perfect, but experience can teach you to live as perfect as possible. Why put off what you can do now, when it keeps you busy and focused? You will have more time to get back to whatever you were doing before, plus, you won’t get yelled at if you forget.
Sometimes, we are forced to do things we hate but we felt responsible to get it done for the sake of the people we love, not only that; it happens commonly in our job. We sometimes see or experience events that make us feel terrible and we perceive these events as being wrong. But pleasure in the job puts perfection in our work.
There are cases that you don’t need to be perfect for something just to make other person like you, don’t you know that they already like you (as is) because in their eyes you are perfect for everything? You cannot please everybody, (of course) and you do not need to do so, because your principle is the expression of perfection, and as imperfect beings like us cannot practice perfection.
Do you investigate your behavior and dig beneath your anger for its source, apologize to someone so that you can both feel better and resolve to do better next time? Everyone with insight enough to admit his limitations comes nearest to perfection.
Perfection is not attainable, but if we chase perfection we can catch excellence. However, they who aim at it, and persevere, will come much nearer to it than those whose laziness and despondency make them give it up as unattainable.
I met a nice guy before and we had a semi-serious relationship. I was wondering why every time I accomplished something either in work or in everyday living he often told me, “I’m very happy for you, you’re higher than number one,” but then my reaction was just casual and not so curious about it, maybe because I was young and not so matured to think things for real. He even gave me a poster of my favorite, “Lord of the Rings” movie with his photo at the bottom and he wrote this again. Now, I realized how much he appreciates me but sadly he is not the Mr. Right for me, we have so many differences that I had long enough to give way until in the end I just give up.
I didn’t seek perfection for a relationship but I know before that he is not the guy I want to spend the rest of my life. The essence of being human is that one does not seek perfection like you feel much for others and little for ourselves and to restrain our selfishness and exercise our benevolent affections. Nevertheless, he thought me to do the best as I can be.
No one becomes perfect but you can be higher than number one.
