Perfectly Imperfect

The people that are unforgettable when I meet them, are people that are usually not speaking about themselves all the time. Only when asked to, and they don’t overwhelm me with too many details. They don’t feel the need to impress me or others. When you talk to them they are relaxed, natural, and spontaneous.

Very often they embrace their imperfect side without fear. I guess the person you should like the most and almost fall in love with is yourself.

What I try to do is never giving up on who I am. I do not give up on my feelings and thoughts. I do have my standards and my passions, and those are flexible and already evolved and even changed within the course of my life.

It is not always easy for me either to not compare myself to others. But when I succeed in letting go of that envy and accept I can be as successful as others and trust in the fact that when I pursue my dreams as they do with theirs we should not envy each other, magic happens and dreams come true.

I think envy is undoubtedly one of the worst threats to any kind of relationship. Miserable, insecure people are inherently jealous, which prevents them from connecting with others.

It is that balance, the combination of confidence and humility that I find particularly attractive. When someone is confident, but at the same time humble, I feel I get drawn to them and I do not feel threatened by them. It’s easier to open up to them and create a connection.

The connection with those perfectly imperfect people, isn’t it great?
