It’s been a long time coming but I’ve finally come to some realization. Self development and learning is something that never stops and as we age, we just come to understand the same things in different perspective or discover things we couldn’t have ever imagined. I know I’m being very vague right now but putting this mindset in any context do apply. Even now, I cannot say I’ve completely grown as a person nor can I say I’m not the same person as before, but I am definitely changing. I know I am not the easiest person to cope with and undeniable one of the most difficult person to deal with. It’s no surprise that “I can’t even deal” pops up so often in my conversations.
“No one is perfect” – a phrase we’ve all heard many times but how many of us actually understand and apply it? I can put both my hands and feet up and say that I honestly haven’t. I’ve lived most of my life trying to doing everything perfectly as planned whether it being assignments, event planning, how I treat my friends and expecting the same in return. Things never work out as planned and this often takes a toll on me; hurting myself and those around me. There are always unexpected incidents so plans should be used as a guideline – like this blog post took me several tries since the app kept crashing and nothing was saved. I’m grateful to have such patient friends around me. The change won’t be immediate and I’m willing to give it a try one step at a time.
The first step is recognizing your flaws and see how you can turn that into a strength. I know this sounds awfully similar to an interview question and quite cliche. Despite that, there are quite some truth in it. My flaw is I’m too hard on myself and those around me. I push myself to perfect everything and when things don’t go according to plan, it’s all written on my face. The worse part is my stubbornness to deny that I’m upset and refuse to express it.
Here, I’d like to promise that I’ll give it my all to make life easier for everyone and express how I truly feel. I have learned and will apply the law of imperfection and accept every flaw of my friends. I will be more understanding and hope you will continue to do the same for me.
Sometimes we just need to take a break from our daily routines and schedule; spend some valuable time away from the bustling streets like taking a short walk in the park. Summer is approaching and so many more inexpensive options to meet up!
