A perfect life.
I don't quite know why, but it seems like everyone's looking for a perfecf life. It's like the ultimate goal for many people. I don't think it's right or wrong to search for it, since, after all, happiness is what we all want, don't we?
There's a misconception though. It looks like we need our lives to be perfect in order to be happy. I don't want to break your plans or anything like that. However, you'd do yourself a favor if you didn't spend most of your time searching for something you won't find. Why? Because life's not meant to be perfect. Life won't be perfect. A perfect life isn't what will bring you happiness. Such thing doesn't exist.
Nobody's life is perfect, even though many people actually think so. They think that only because someone doesn't complain about their problem, that means they don't have problems. They think that because someone smiles bright they're happy, when they might be broken inside. We all go through hard stuff, we all suffer. We all have scars - whether they're visible or not.
Then, why should we waste our time searching for something we won't find? Isn't it better to try to make what we already have seem perfect? We could try to make our imperfect lives feel perfect. Or, maybe they don't have to feel like they were perfect, maybe we only need to enjoy the imperfections of life. Would rainbows exist if rain didn't exist? No. Would happiness exist if there weren't bad moments? No.
Maybe we should focus on something different than searching for a perfect life. Maybe the answer is to find small perfections inside the imperfections of life.
