No one is Imperfect

How many of us here have heard about Albert Einstein and Mahatma Gandhi?

All of us I presume, pretty famous personalities. So people, how many of us also know the fact that the so famous Albert Einstein had speech difficulties as a child and showed dyslexia symptoms. Moreover, the man who could change the world with his words of wisdom and simplicity had difficulty in learning multiplication.

So what am I trying to put through these mere facts? Well, the only reason why I am stating all these facts is quite easy to comprehend. Each one of us would want to be tagged as a perfect human being. Perfect in every sense. Not only because it gives us happiness but more importantly because it is the only way to prove the outside world or the so called “society” which judges us every second that yes we are capable of achieving something in life or doing something good with life and if by any slip of luck you do not fall into this ” Perfect category of people” you would be labelled as a loser. Firstly my apologies to those kinds of people who have been cursing themselves for not doing well in life and blaming and cribbing and complaining every now and then.

You cannot be perfect in everything you do in life. You have to learn to face the difficulties and move on not crib and cry because failure will not make you a loser but giving up surely will .CHEER UP!

In addition, talking about the only way of proving yourself in society is understandable to some extent. Many of us have been slaves of this society, which never ceases to amaze me. Underestimating ourselves and our dignity just because we were not able to meet the expectations of people whom we barely even know would certainly not define where we stand in life and what are we capable of. So if you are one of those slaves of society who was brutally judged in everything you did no matter how hard you tried but your efforts were not even recognised and all that which was put forward was your failure, then my friend you need to stop blaming yourself and start understanding that the world would judge you no matter whatever you do. You really need to trust yourself and your abilities more than someone’s views or opinions. You need not pressurise yourself to prove to the world but yourself because the world will not ever stop judging you anyway.

My friend, you, might not be perfect to the world. None of us is. Even the greatest of people as cited above have failed in some way or another but the reason why they achieved what they desired was simple because they never had to try to prove to the world their abilities and never did they give up when hardships came their way. Even they were not perfect in the eyes of the world but they were perfect in their own thinking. Moreover, that has made all the difference.

So if you were not able to score a 95 % in an exam? Or were not selected in some college of your dreams? Or had a hard day at the office? Or was constantly being compared to your sibling? 
Just breathe.

Because at the end of the day what actually would matter will not be your mark sheet or the crisp bundle of notes you have earned but it would be you. Only you. Because unless you learn to face your own shadows, you will continue to see them in others, as the world outside you is only a reflection of the world inside you.
