What is perfect? Is anyone actually perfect? What does the word perfect even mean? The dictionary defines it as “having no mistakes or flaws; completely correct or accurate.”
With this definition we have trained ourselves to think perfection is unobtainable. We think of ourselves as being imperfect because we do have flaws, we constantly make mistakes, and we’re not always correct or accurate. Thus, causing us to think perfect is something we will never be.
And because we feel we can never be perfect, we tend to look down on ourselves and develop low self-esteem and feelings of inadequacy, doubt, and defeat; as we think we will never measure up to a certain standard.
