You are imperfect. Say it and be free, my friends. You are imperfect, and it is highly likely that the men or women you’ll be dating in the future are imperfect, too.
Everyone goes their whole life dreaming of the perfect person to spend their lives with. We want someone perfect for our idealistic sense of beauty, has their sh*t together, lots of money, good in bed, et cetera.
But can we really expect to want a person to fill our “other half” who is perfect? Because let’s be honest, if we’re looking for someone who is perfect for us as individuals, we’re expecting him or her to be imperfect in order to fit our “perfect” other half mold.
Everyone has some skeletons in their closet. We’re all damaged goods at this point and that’s what makes it real. We need to stop being afraid of this and expose the bad stuff in order to find someone who loves you even though they’ve seen it and vice versa. No one wants to be fixed; we are all just looking for someone to love us in this crazy, broken world.
In order to have a healthy relationship, we need to begin with honesty. You’re f*cked up, I’m f*cked up, and the right ones for us our f*cked up, too.
In case you aren’t yet convinced that basic individuals are actually beneath you, consider this:
Bottom line, these people are not what you deserve because they are “all you can get.” You truly deserve them because you were lucky enough to find such a gem, you beautiful, one of a kind gem.
