Most people don't understand the concept of perfection. While it is usually known to mean flawless, that is not necessarily true. I believe that perfection is in the eye of the beholder. Nobody is flawless, but they can still be an amazing person. One person may think that you are absolutely amazing, but another may not. And us, as people, tend to not see our own perfection. So here's a little help for you to see yours.

1. You are the only you there is.

​Nobody is exactly like you. We all have our own little quirks and special things about us that make us unique. No one's brain works like yours does. While there may be some similarities to others, you are still the only you there is, and I think that's pretty special.

​2. You've been through the rough times and are still standing tall.

​Even if you aren't standing as tall as you'd like to, you are reading this and that means you haven't given up yet, and I hope you never do. As long as you're alive, you can stand tall. So try your best, keep those shoulders back, and remember to smile because smiling is cute.

​3. The way your eyes light up when you talk about what you're passionate about.

​The fact that you enjoy doing something, whether it's a sport, knitting, writing, or music, is absolutely amazing. Even if you don't quite know what you really like to do, that's okay. I had no idea what I should be spending my time doing until about a month ago. Let time take you and you'll find it.

​4. You are a more beautiful person than you give yourself credit for.

​We have the tendency to not like what we see when we look in the mirror. We see other people and think, 'Why can't I look like them?' I do this as well as others. Maybe it's just that we've seen everything about ourselves for the longest time, but these other people that we admire so much could be thinking the same thing. You are a beautiful human being no matter what you think.

​​5. You're an overall badass human that deserves better.

​If you are reading this, you might be looking for a confidence boost or you are just feeling down about yourself. Well, here's the deal. You don't need this post because you are so much better than you think. ​Whatever you are doing, you doing absolutely great. Whatever struggle you are facing right now, eventually it will pass and you will get what you deserve. Of course that also comes with working for it, but you can do it. I know you'll do great out there because you are great.
