Despite what you may believe, you can disappoint people and still be good enough. You can make mistakes and still be capable and talented. You can let people down and still be worthwhile and deserving of love. Everyone has disappointed someone they care about. Everyone messes up, lets people down, and makes mistakes. Not because we’re inadequate or fundamentally inept, but because we’re imperfect and fundamentally human. Expecting anything different is setting yourself up for failure.
Fall in love with someone who wants to know your favourite colour. Fall in love with someone who loves the way you laugh and would do absolutely anything to hear it. Fall in love with someone who falls in love with your flaws and thinks you are perfect just the way you are.
I don’t want to be someone’s idea of perfect. What if one day they woke up and realized I wasn’t as perfect as they thought I was? I rather be someone’s idea of imperfect. That way I know they have accepted me and all my flaws.
