Be Yourself

“HOW   
do you define a word 
without concrete meaning? 
To each his own, the saying goes, so
WHY
push to attain an ideal state of being 
that no two random people will agree is
WHERE
you want to be? 
Faultless. Finished. Incomparable. 
People can never be these, and anyway,
WHEN
did creating a flawless facade 
become a more vital goal 
than learning to love the person
WHO
lives inside your skin? 
The outside belongs to others. 
Only you should decide for you -
WHAT
is perfect.”

― Ellen Hopkins, Perfect
long quote that i stumbled across
today as i was doing some reading.
In fact, i read through it twice
before i added it to the "save"
pile -- which of course grows
on a daily basis.
None of us are perfect
and who wants to be?
Be happy with who you are
and life will be that much easier.
