The person I envision of myself in the future has five businesses, a degree, a masters, has a plant-based diet, works out everyday, does yoga because it’s sophisticated and cool, owns a home, has a husband, is really popular and has a great social life, is a humanitarian and philanthropist and is basically just so amazing and perfect. .....Yeahhhh, no.
Perfection is so unrealistic, it’s so unrealistic that it’s depressing. Nobody should strive to perfection, I’m sorry, we should all just strive to be better versions of ourselves. And we should love who we are now, flaws and all! All of those things would be nice, but you have to ask yourself are they nice because society has told you that this is what you have to do, have to be, to be a great person?
I’m not saying don’t aim high, we all should, but just don’t kill yourself trying to be what society has told you to be. Like a better version of me is a woman who is super-confident, genuinely happy, has found a way to do what she loves full time, who has strong relationships with her family and friends, who steps out of her comfort zone more, who isn’t complacent, who’s more organised and views life as worth it, rather than worthless. This person isn’t perfect, this person is just an improved version of me.
No make up on ever because I don’t fucking need it.
