1. I'm not Perfect

I'm not perfect.

Too often, I look in the mirror, afraid to see the face that stares back at me. There is not a single aspect about myself that I like. I live my life afraid of what people will think of me, even if I try my hardest not to. I compare myself to others, like people more popular or more beautiful than I am. There are people that I don't like. Sometimes, I don't only compare myself to other people that are above me on the popularity scale, but I compare myself to my own best friends. I am talked about behind my back. Sorry I'm not like you. 

I'm not perfect. 

I have family problems, and sometimes my attention-span shortens. I like a different sort of music to you, while you are listening to the 'in' music I'm listening to what I enjoy. I'm not the top in every class, sometimes I struggle. I can't be an Einstein. I make mistakes. Sometimes I question my existence, sometimes it makes sense. I didn't pass that test, I forgot to study. It happens sometimes. Sorry that I don't live up to your expectations. 

I'm not perfect. 

Sometimes, I have really crap days when nothing seems to go my way. I will sometimes embarrass myself in front of everyone while you are sitting in the bathroom caking yourself in makeup and fixing your hair, because the only thing that could embarrass you is for people to see you fresh-faced. I have problems in some topics in school. I will never understand Science and I struggle in Maths. There are moments when I hate my life, and I'm watching you live in a near-perfect one. I will judge someone sometimes, but then I will get to know them better and know that I was wrong. You will judge someone, but don't take the time to realise that they could be a lot nicer than you ever expected. Sorry that I am able to learn to accept people. 

I'm not perfect. 

I get into trouble for talking to someone in class while you sit there looking like an angel. I can learn to forgive and forget, but you may always hold a grudge. Sometimes, I would rather sit at home and Skype my friends than go out for a jog. I will treat myself with a chocolate every now and again. My stomach isn't completely flat, and I try to spend days holding my breath so that I won't be judged for my weight. I have bad-hair days where my hair seems to stand on end. I am insecure, and I need to be told I'm beautiful every once in a while, even thought it's not necessarily true that I will always believe it. Sometimes I try to people-please my way through life and other times, I can sort the difference between wrong and right. Sorry that I try to make others happy.

I'm not perfect. 

But hear, no matter how true you think it is, you will never be perfect either. No one will be. Everyone comes to school and acts happy as ever, even if it isn't true that that's how they're feeling. Everyone will spend half an hour looking through their closet so that they will find a nice piece of clothing that won't be criticised by anyone who feels like it's not good enough. Everyone has feelings and sometimes, they'll be hurt. Everyone has a heart, and sometimes they just need to go with what it tells them. Sorry for pointing all this out.

I'm not perfect.

Neither are you.
