Perfection (Re-Post)

Photo by Luis Quintero on

Why are we so after perfection?
Are we not perfect the way we are?
What is perfection?
Has anyone thought of this?
Fat, acne, messy life, no career, no job, bla bla…
Can not we strive to improve upon this. But what? We still would feel imperfect. It has become our habit. We strive and strive to achieve what we want but when we get it we again strive for something which the other person is in possession and that other person too thinks he is imperfect.
Then what should we work for?

Be a good human being everything will fall in place. Is it?

I think one should mind his own business and life. Peeping into others leads to a chain of thoughts for achieving perfection. Which, by the way, is nothing. Everything you are now is perfect. Perfect for you and others. Work hard towards bettering yourself.

  1. Perfection is relative. If nothing to compare with then, how will you define perfection. We are all unique and it should be appreciated. Good post πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ™‚πŸ™πŸ»

  2. Well it’s a complex question and there can’t be a singular answer to it. One school advocates for satisfaction, other pushes you to achieve further and not to settle. I feel peace lies where there is satisfaction.

    1. Wants, desires, they increase with comparison. Satisfaction can only be achieved if one is happy.
      Perfection is a word which has limit attached to it. Example: One can be perfect for a job as the requirements mentioned in the job description is the limit.

      We ourselves have created the fuss you mentioned. I am glad that you read my post and replied with a thoughtful comment.
      Thank you so much kindly πŸ™‚

      1. As you mentioned satisfaction can only be achieved when one is happy but vice-versa is equally correct, one can only be happy when (s)he is satisfied.
        I enjoyed reading your post.

    Such profound words, Kritika! I think perfection is relative like many other things in life. Besides, going after perfection in any form is not going to make us any happier. That’s why I too think it’s important we try to a better version of ourselves every day!

  4. Kritika, I am glad you reposted this, as I had not seen it. My late husband used to remind me, “The perfect is the enemy of the good.” I think it’s better to be good at all the important things than to be perfect in one or two. When I was young and learning to clean house, I would polish a couple of things to perfection and have no time for the rest.
    Thank you again for this wonderful reminder, that we do not need to be perfect, All the best! Cheryl
