I lack perfection.
I don’t know why this comes as a surprise to me.
Over and over again.
I’ve always lacked perfection.

It’s imperfections in my personality that I find the hardest to manage.
I appreciate how my hand sewn imperfections can be endearing…but my quirks of personality?
I find those much harder to highlight and embrace.
