Everyone is moving towards perfection in the fields of their expertise. Perfection is considered the utmost limit one can reach. Perfection is the ultimate stage in the lives of most of us.
Since childhood, we are told to be perfect in multiple things. Get a perfect score on your test, win a competition, excel in everything etc.
One thing which we fail to understand is, perfection is subjective, what is perfect for me may not be perfect for you.
We all are unique in our own way are not mere words. It is true we all are unique, weird, normal, sane, insane and different. If we all are different in every way how is it possible to have the same definition of perfection?
Perfection is a standard set by somebody by observing hundreds of people. It was an experiment about the maximum limit a person can reach in a particular field. But what we failed to remember is, most of us remained below the line of perfection. If most people are below 100, say at 70, Standard should be 70. Not all of us need to reach 100, It is okay to be at 70.
It should be okay to be average as long as we are happy. Perfection is not the aim, happiness is. It may lead to happiness, it may not. It is NOT the key to happiness. Happiness can be found in the imperfections of life
I’m average in this race of perfection, running on a different track.
