“I try to make sense of things. Which is why, I guess, I believe in destiny. There must be a reason that I am as I am. There must be.” Robin Williams
In this idea that “Imperfection is Human”, I wanted to share stories of individuals being human. The ideas or actions that we may believe to be mistakes are ironically the things that make us most incredible. It may be an act of mistake that you feel ashamed of, or an event that just happened to you that can make you feel less worthy.
“We never lose our demons, we only learn to live above them.”
On the final day of my 30th year of life, I found no feelings of success and relief, but instead of shame for the fact that I am not where I thought I would be. I’m not too sure where I thought I’d be, but there’s a feeling of failure that resonated deep within me at the beginning of the month. I find myself in a constant battle with these so-called demons that I allowed to overcome me.
