Desperate Times, Desperate Measures

Perfection. It’s hard to find, but it exists somewhere behind the faces we often misjudge. I wonder if someone feels about me the same way.

How do they achieve perfection unwittingly? Perhaps, they don’t run after it. Perhaps, they aren’t even aware of the mysteriously pleasant energy they create around themselves. They neither climb mountains, nor build huge fortresses. Although they have their imperfections, they scarcely ever get affected by them.

Are we all perfect, or is it just that particular person?

"Perfection Corleone, is my real name."

"Perfection Corleone, is my real name."

It’s no rocket science that we change ourselves in accordance with the behaviour and the mannerism of the people we meet. Though it’s only a temporary change, but we still manage to pretend to be someone we’re not. Maybe, someday, I will get so good at pretending that I will forget who the real Aadil is. Maybe.

But then again, perfectionism shouldn’t demand us to forget who we are. Maybe I should dig in deeper.

    We all know, we’re not perfect. It’s just a matter of how much you can ‘try’ achieving perfectness. Oh well, that’s my opinion. And Pacino is LOVE. πŸ˜€
    Awesome work πŸ™‚

    Aadil sounds sentimental. Aadil needs spanking.

      Aadil does? πŸ˜₯

        Aadil does. Then maybe he could share my bowl of Frosty Flakes later.

    For quite some time, I pretended I was somebody else (for perfection or some other obscure reason) which in truth, I was not. Its weird that it took a pilfering writer’s block that made me realize what my actual identity was.

    Good work πŸ™‚ I hope you get over your identity crisis as well.

      All of us have tried pretending to be someone else at least once in our lives.

      Thanks! But I’m not really in the middle of an identity crisis. πŸ™‚

    Nothing’s worse then having to pretend to be someone other than what you really are !
    And yes ( referring to the above commentator ) writer’s blocks develop when we go out-of-tune with our heart’s signals. Pretense and writing just don’t go along very well .
