"Portraits" by Patrick Tosani
The definition of perfect is, "Someone completely free from faults or defects."
Nobody is perfect. We are all human. You may see models or celebrities as "perfection". Ads don’t reflect the average day of models. A combination of photo shop, make up artists, and talented photographers create the looks that people around the world strive to look like.
There may be someone you view as perfect, but get to know them. They are probably just like you and me.
Don't be hard on yourself. Perfect is an unrealistic goal. Be the best version of yourself.
We are our number one critics.
Out of everyone I know, I'm the hardest on myself. I have learned the first step to succeeding is learning to love yourself.
You must accept your "flaws" and learn to love them. You are unique. I believe, in order to have a healthy relationship with others, you have to learn to love yourself first. Because if you don't love yourself, then who will? Take some time for yourself. Figure out your strengths and weaknesses. Know them, and be okay with them.
Learn to own your flaws. There are things I want different with myself, but I have learned to let it go.
I love to see women empowering other women. Today, I see girls criticizing each other. Instead of tearing down girl’s confidence, we should build each other up. There is so much negativity in this world. Tell that girl you don’t get a long with the best, that you like her outfit. Little compliments will make someone’s day just a little bit better. You never know what is going on in someone’s life, but you have the power to change their day for the better.
There's a reason I was given this life. It is my journey to learn to love and accept every part of me. As it is for you, good luck.
