Bob Marley was once asked if there was a perfect woman. And he replied…who cares about perfection.
-Even the moon is not perfect, it is full of craters.
What about the sea? Very beautiful, but very salty and dark in the depths.
And what about heaven? Always so infinite, that is, the most beautiful things are not perfect, they are special and every woman, every man and every human being chooses who is special in his life.
Stop trying to be “perfect.” Better try to be free and live doing what you like, without trying to please others.
Those were his words and these words alone describe a journey of “becoming.” It is words like these that we have to live through, each on our own, each with our own experiences, trials, errors and hopefully successes. It’s unlearning the standards of society and what we’ve been taught all of our lives. When it comes to beauty and perfection there is a certain label that fits the bill. A label every human being has seen, a label that has caused anxiety and problems with self acceptance. But his words rings true and if we can unlearn those standards, accept ourselves and love ourselves unconditionally, we indeed shall be free.
