Such a strong word that can bring many people down about themselves. Intriguing really, we all obtain such flaws that make us look or be unique to every other person. Our world constantly revolves around the perfection we should achieve towards how we physically look. Advertisements after advertisements portray what they think the perfect male or female should look like, this includes the product that is being showed that of course has to cost pretty much an arm and a leg. Then it makes you wonder, will this work? If I use this product am I going to look like them?
No. No product will every make you look like that person on the screen, not even plastic surgery, it might bring you that much closer to achieving what you want but not the exact same. I'm not saying don't use products, hell, I use multiple products a day also. It's just these advertisements are grabbing our attention, giving promises that if we get what "they" have, we can just be as attractive as them. But it's not only just that, during this process you get even more carried away, there's always that one more extra thing you want to add to this transformation, but in all this time, we're just hiding our unique characteristics, slowly making each one of us look the same.
Perfections is a Myth. I think we've all had that one friend that we see as perfect and wanting to be like them. Did you go through that time where you spent so much time with them that you found out that they aren't as perfect as you think? That's the thing! Each of us have our flaws, flaws that make us stand out and become noticeable. Sometimes it might eat you up, get you bullied, bring your confidence to pretty much nothing, but it's what we're born with, we might as well just deal with it and make it the best looking flaw that you can obtain!
Our flaws are not simply unwelcome nuisances, they are integral parts of our lives. Each of us has our own combination of flaws and struggles that make us who we are. They make us unique, special, and beautiful.

I love this MyTake! Real love is when you love someone for their flaws, not despite them
Kids used to make fun of me for being fat growing up (I was only 20 lbs overweight and I lost it in highschool) and for my curly red hair (they called me Carrot Top and firecrotch and Poodle because it was fluffy) but they were just asshole kids. The man I'm seeing now says I have a great body and that he was never into skinny girls anyway. He also likes to play with my hair and has always had a thing for redheads. Sometimes the things you've been told are flaws are the reason why someone else is attracted to you
He was slightly disfigured by an explosion, so he can't open one eye all the way and has some facial scarring. I didn't even notice that until I saw some pictures of him after knowing him for 2 months. I actually think it makes him more attractive for some reason. It makes him different and I like different
Your MyTake reminds me of a song called "Imperfect" by Davey Suicide. "Give me give me a good reason to love all of your demons. I wanna see your scars, all the skeletons inside, all the pain keeping you alive, and all your imperfections are perfect in my eyes."
wow this is amazing, thanks for sharing! :)
