A collection of imperfection quotes to embrace your flaws, love yourself unconditionally, and accept yourself completely! 

In today’s age, with social media constantly showing us the so-called perfect lives, it’s so easy to fall into the comparison trap and constantly compare our lives to theirs. 

We are all so caught up in wanting to be perfect. Wanting to have the perfect face, wear perfect clothes, have perfect bodies, and just basically live perfect lives that we end up hating ourselves and become someone we’re not along the way. 

How do you achieve Perfection? 

You don’t. You simply can’t because perfection is attainable. Constantly chasing after it is absolutely ridiculous and a complete waste of time. 

Human as we are, we are flawed, we make mistakes, we fail, we are imperfect — and that’s okay, that is what makes us beautiful and special. 

It’s time to stop chasing perfection. It’s time to stop trying to be perfect and just live your life.

These perfectly imperfect quotes and sayings below will remind you to own your imperfections, instead of being ashamed of them or seeing them as a weakness.
