Perfect? It's Over Rated.

Why is it that everyone is always getting hung up and stuck on the word perfect? What is so important about that particular word that we can't seem to let it go?

When you look the word "perfect" in the dictionary, I used the American Heritage Dictionary, you get a list of different ways that the word "perfect" is used. Here is the list for what "perfect" means in the dictionary.

per·fect  (pûr fĭkt)
adj.1. Lacking nothing essential to the whole; complete of its nature or kind.2. Being without defect or blemish: a perfect specimen.

Just by reading the first two definitions, there are 12 definitions total, it is easy to see how the word is being used in society. And just because society is telling us that we need to be perfect in order to be happy doesn't mean that we have to go along. It is okay to be happy without being perfect at the same time. Besides no one is perfect and like it says in the title, perfect is over rated.

This quote that I found on Pinterest sums up what I am trying to say about not having to be perfect in order to fit in.
