I’ve had thousands of failures, hundreds of wrong decisions and countless stupid mistakes, yes I really have and i'm sure i'm not alone. I’m flawed, scarred, and imperfect. I cannot change or undo any of this nor do I wish to. My past has made me whom I am today and I like who I see in the mirror each day. I'm proud of that person staring back at me and just how far she's come. I love her for the perfectly, imperfect person that she is.
I am stronger because of my hard times, wiser because of my mistakes, happier because of my sad experiences and smarter because of my moments of confusion. I’ve learned to love more passionately and with much greater conviction and I’ve found my inner strength to walk any path that shall be put in front of me with my head held high and with great character, moral and dedication.
When you judge someone poorly of their past and their moments of mistakes and do not give them a chance, you are not defining them, you are defining yourself and just may miss out on someone that is "Perfectly Imperfect” for your world no matter your own imperfections and mistakes.
Have you been defining yourself rather than others? I think we all have at some point in our lives and know is the time to forgive ourselves and move forward with more awareness and compassion for the soul behind those eyes that speak the truth that often no one hears.
Be kind to one another xox
