you were born to be real, not to be perfect

Perfect definition

Being perfect means, flawless or being entire without defect or fault. There is no blemish. It also means precise or accurate.

Is perfectionism possible? (as humans)

I can bet in this regard.

My friend, perfection is impossible and don’t ever strain to be perfect all the time.

Society expects you to be perfect all the time

To be perfect at any cost is ingrained in our society.

There is nothing wrong with trying to be perfect.

A civilised society needs this.

It’s a good thing and a much-required habit.

You by being perfect, the society is benefitted.

Parents want children to be perfect.

Couples expect each other to be perfect.

Being perfect one can maintain the freshness and quality of things.

The mind becomes stronger and content.

Perfection gives you satisfaction and recognition in society.

But society has dual standards

The problem with the people is that even if you are perfect, they find fault in you.

Society wants you to be a Utopian in all the fields.

If you are not perfect, you are treated as a waste.

The sad part is people expect you to be perfect when they themselves are not perfect!

What is that I am trying to impress?

My friend, perfectionism is not possible.

Attaining perfection is an illusion.

By expecting perfectionism, either you hurt yourself or others.

My friend, life itself is not perfect and we all know this truth.

Know these simple rules

✔By trying to be perfect you forget the ‘present”

✔The thought of perfection creates more pain than joy.

✔All of us are far from being perfect which includes you & me.

✔The people next to you are far from perfect since they enjoy your imperfections all the time.

✔The world we live in is far from perfect. Nature shows its imperfection in many ways, you may call calamities or disasters or Natures revenge etc.

What does this mean?

Take home message

Since life itself is not perfect, my advice is to stop chasing happiness by trying hard to be perfect.

Don’t be hard on yourself.

It’s OK to be imperfect.

“I realized that I don’t have to be perfect. All I have to do is show up and enjoy the messy, imperfect, and beautiful journey of my life.”  Kerry Washington

Dear friend, I have a question for you

Thanks for reaching this point.

Are you able to adjust your life with the imperfections of others, be your spouse, children, relatives or friends?

Or do you love to correct their imperfection?

What are your thoughts?

Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

Never wish for a fairy tale to happen in your life!

“Life is a bitch; you get used though, or you kill yourself. Either way, you’re winning.” Ahmed Mostafa

Who says life is beautiful?

Any strong reasons to support with evidence?

Do you think life is beautiful?

And why do you feel that life is beautiful?

If you ask me I just have two reasons to say so.

  1. The first reason being, when you wake up in the morning, you are aware that you are alive.
  2. The second reason being, when you fall in romantic love, you say life is beautiful.

Other than this I find nothing to cheer up

My dear friend… read the following and you realize how harsh your life is and sadly you don’t recognize the same and are busy dreaming day and night that the future holds good.

Remember that you ultimately die, hoping that something good is going to happen, which you are not going to see since it never going to happen.

You are funny because you live in hope for tomorrow, forgetting that today is the best day to live since you are alive today.

Still, if you think your life is beautiful…then I request you to read these 37 harsh truths of your life.

  1. Money is everything. You are nothing without money.
  2. The world is not against you. It just does not care.
  3. You can’t please everyone.
  4. All of us are going to die, some of us early and some others late.
  5. Never take life too seriously.
  6. Today is your day. Make the best use of it or else it is too late.
  7. Nothing is free.
  8. No one is interested or cares about your problems.
  9. People only show you, what they want you to see.
  10. If you are not laughing, you are crying.
  11. No one is busy. It depends on how much they wanted to make you a priority.
  12. Everybody is selfish.
  13. None is your well-wisher and can backstab you any moment.
  14. Stop expecting or assuming or presuming.
  15. People, emotion, respect and affection changes over time. Change is the only constant.
  16. Life runs on the law of Karma.
  17. a complaint is a f*****g waste of time.
  18. The world owes you nothing.
  19. Chasing happiness makes you lose it more.
  20. There may not be a tomorrow.
  21. There is a lot, you can’t control.
  22. The only person, who can make you happy is yourself.
  23. There will always be people who don’t like you.
  24. The world only cares about, what it can get from you.
  25. The life you are living right now is a dream for many people but yet strangely you hate your life.
  26. No one will ever completely understand you.
  27. Sometimes you have to remove certain people from your life even if they are family.
  28. Children are honest creatures until they are taught not to be.
  29. Friends come and go, but enemies accumulate. Friends are always not trustworthy. You can trust them, but not blindly.
  30. Nothing ever happens exactly as you pictured it.
  31. Life is a mystery and you are not alone.7 billion people are living it without a clue about what happens next.
  32. No matter how many good things you did to people, they always remember that one thing you did not do for them.
  33. You will always have a critique.
  34. We are liars.
  35. When you are happy, you enjoy the music and when you are sad you understand the lyrics.
  36. Everyone wears a mask.
  37. Everybody carries at least one secret to their graveyard and no way you can know it!

The Real truth of Life

Life is simply a state of existence my friends.

Nothing more to add or subtract!

Life is a theatre stage my friend. You are a great actor, acting and impressing everyone that your life is beautiful!

And Dear Readers, I know you are all very well read and intelligent and are waiting to add some more…please feel free to add in the comment box.

If you think life is beautiful, then let me know …how….and correct me!

Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

Beautiful brainy answer?

Do you know the motto of Miss Universe?

The motto of the pageant is Beauty with a purpose.

Question-If you could live forever, would you and why?

“I would not live forever, because we should not live forever, because if we were ever supposed to live forever, then we would live forever, but we cannot live forever, which is why I would not live forever.” –Miss Alabama, in the 1994 Miss Universe contest, (when asked if she would want to live forever)

Dear friend, can you help me in understanding what exactly she wished to convey?

My mother tongue is not English.

Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

Source quote- From Internet

Who decides that you look ugly ?

“I am fond of pigs. Dogs look up to us. Cats look down to us. Pigs treat us as equal” Winston Churchill

By deciding and calling somebody or something ugly…are we not questioning the Wisdom of Almighty?

Do ever the so called Ugly Persons think that he or she is ugly?

The whole world is obsessed with ‘beauty’

I can never know why people like what they like and decide to differentiate between ugly & beauty.

Maybe advertising beauty products is one of the reasons?  I am not sure. But one thing I am sure of obsession with being beautiful is a sure recipe for low self-esteem.

“No matter how ugly you are; there is always someone who sees his heaven in your eyes.”              M.F. Moonzajer

Definition of Ugly

Dictionary.com says

  • Very unattractive or unpleasant to look at; offensive to the sense of beauty; displeasing in appearance.
  • Disagreeable; unpleasant; objectionable:                                                                                                ugly tricks; ugly discords   

  • Morally revolting:                                                                                                                                            Ugly crimes
  • Threatening trouble or danger:                                                                                                                      ugly symptoms.
  • Mean; hostile; quarrelsome.                                                                                                                          an ugly mood; an ugly frame of mind.
  • (especially of natural phenomena) unpleasant or dangerous:                                                                      ugly weather; an ugly sea


Unfortunately we always mean ugly, in terms of one’s appearance.

Sadly we extend the notion of beauty to the animal kingdom too!

Can anything escape the human eye?

Now coming to the topic…

Are pigs ugly?

No, my friend.

All creations of God are beautiful.

Pigs are not ugly by appearance.

My guess is they are called ugly may be due to the garbage they eat or being fat and overweight and most importantly they enjoy playing in the dirty mud.

But we forget that that is what pigs are supposed to be.

“A pig has its own nature; no one can take that away from him, it can’t be changed, why blame the poor thing?”  Unknown 

Take home message

“Don’t look for a pretty face- it will turn old one day

Don’t look for good skin- it will turn wrinkle one day

Don’t look for a hot body- it will change one day

Don’t look for nice hair- it will turn white one day

Instead, look for a loyal heart- that will love every day”  unknown

Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

“Nothing makes a woman more beautiful than the belief that she is beautiful” unknown

“Every woman is beautiful, it just takes the right man to see it”  unknown

Is it possible to measure  BEAUTY?

My dear friend, you can not measure beauty. There are no units to measure beauty.

“True beauty is measured by the number of pearls within you, not those around your neck.”
Suzy Kassem

Can anybody decide how beautiful you are?

If that is the case then you are degrading yourself.

“Say to yourself, I am perfect, the way I am. Say to yourself, I am beautiful the way I am. Say to yourself, those who do not accept me the way I am, do not deserve me in their life.”
Abhijit Naskar

But human psychology is unique

Humans enjoy double standards.

“Everyone wants to look beautiful. No one wants to be beautiful!”
 Avijeet Das

What is my definition of beauty?

“Beauty being the best possible version of yourself on the inside and out”  unknown

But Somerset Maugham has a different definition

“Beauty is an ecstasy; it is as simple as hunger. There is really nothing to be said about it. It is like the perfume of a rose: you can smell it and that is all.”  

Take home message

“What is beauty? Why is this world obsessed with beauty? It is a pathetic way of measuring your worth in the eyes of another.

How can one person or the majority decide who is beautiful and who is not? Why are people all over the world being driven to adopt standards of beauty? Why do we have beauty pageants? The world is making people want to “look beautiful” but not “be beautiful.”

The world is making the new generation self- conscious about external looks. The new generation is becoming superficial. There is no depth in people.

True beauty is not in how we look. It is in how we love, care, and share.”
Avijeet Das

Thank you.

Body shame

Body shame

We are our own worst critic

Free dictionary defines Body Shame as

” The act of criticizing,ridiculing, or otherwise making someone feel ashamed about  (some aspect of ) their physical appearance,especially their weight “.

Simply put,shaming of somebody, based on the size,shape and appearance of the body.

Individuals can be fat,thin,tall or short.Body color can be black,brown,or white.These are not deficiencies but Gods way of creation.Describing a person ugly by appearance only tells about your low esteem.

Size Zero

Size zero refers to having a bust size of 31 inches,waist of 23 inches and hip size of 32 inches.

Celebrities too are responsible for promoting size zero concept,such that many young girls are falling prey to the medical disease called Anorexia Nervosa.

How body shaming can happen ?

Body shaming is said evolve in three ways.

1. Criticizing one’s own appearance through a judgement or comparison.

2. Criticizing another person in front of them.

3. Criticizing another person’s appearance without their knowledge.

( Source-Body shaming-what is it & why do we do it )

It can start from bullying in schools with nicknames,jokes and even unsolicited advice.Body shaming is a hidden villain in our society.

Some common examples:

  • You have such a pretty face,if only you would just lose some weight.
  • As you enter the store ,sales person telling on the face ‘we don’t keep stock of Plus Sizes here’ Uh-huh …
  • Are you having some health issues ?
  • Friendly tips being given to improve body posture,skin tone, hairstyle or cloths being worn.
  • Boys don’t want fat girls,a mom advising her daughter.
  • You are so skinny,not fit for joyful sex.
  • Oh see this Baldy and observe his funny looks
  • My God… is it pimples on her face or face on her pimples !
  • OMG ! Look at her, bigger assets so tempting !
  • I am going to divorce you because of your body appearance !

The list can go on……

Why we are all judgmental ?

Why most of us are instantly tempted to comment on someone else’s body ?

The whole problem starts because most of us are programmed to judge the others by their physical appearances,and the worst human habit is ‘Comparison’ and having ones own ‘Bench marks’

Can’t we develop the habit of looking at everyone as Beautiful,since all of us are created by God ?

Body shame

Image source- Ariel Winter (Ariel Winter Quotes) Nicole Shazegar

What body shaming can do ?

It ruins people’s lives.It makes one hate one’s own body.Self confidence at its worst.Many go into mental depression,anxiety disorders,stop eating, even suicidal tendencies.

Have not you heard the idiom’ one man’s food is another man’s poison ‘……this clearly tells that what you see as full of flaws may be some one else’s beauty.

Is body shaming a sort of sexism ? I don’t know.
