Perfection! Does it really exist?

A person who is perfect, do they really exist? I don't think so, because no matter how good someone thinks they are, everyone has faults. Whether they are visible or not, they are there! Do you agree with that? Now, if you could change anything about yourself with a click of your fingers to be one step closer, what would it be. Or maybe you are happy with the way you are, and that is a bonus to you. What are your thoughts on this?

What you meant by perfection in life or perfection in what ever things you do.i think perfection is not important trying for perfection is more important.how can you think that if you have done a work which is perfect .suppose a sculpture build a statue and he think it as a perfect one suddenly somebody else came there and do some minute correctings and it may look better .what i mean is that what is perfect to you may not be perfect there will always scope for improvement.but we want to have perfect and tries for perfection.

You've got some good points there. I know I'm not perfect, and truthfully, I wouldn't want to be, even if it were possible. Think what the pressure would be like,lol!! I always strive for perfection, but end up a fair way off at times.

Actually no one is perfect in the world. It has been said that "PRACTICE MAKES MAN PERFECT". But a quote says that "NO ONE IS PERFECT". SO how could anyone be perfect? If you change yourself and try to be perfect then you are.

I agree, nobody is perfect. My wife likes me just the way I am, so I guess I'm close enough for her. That's really what counts for me, I think.

i don't think perfection is the way to live life. Perfection never matches practicality, you have to make out a golden mean in between those. There is always a trade-off in between those. I have myself experienced that when ever my elder tell me something to do this , that in this way and that way. Yes every one has some faults but gotto live with it and accept it as they are. I am happy with the way i am. And i think i am more practical and pragmatic person rather than a perfectionist!

Well, I agree, you are more practical by not being a perfectionist. I'm trying not to be too much of one, and have improved a lot since my 4 yr old son was born. That is the last thing in the world I would want to do is put too high expectations on him!

Nobody is perfect. Simple as that. We just need to be grateful for what we are :)

Yes that is true, and we should try to be happy for what we are. There is always someone who is worse off.

I also dont believe in perfection - close to perfection yes but not perfect. If we were, then there was no need to live coz we would already know and have everything. there are lots of things about myself that i want to change - but primarily I want to chnage my expectations level from other people. Coz i expect too much and then disappoint myself when they are not met.

Yes, I sometimes have a high expectation of other people, but also myself, so I would probably change that about myself, too. I think a lttle more patience with some things would be good also.
