An insightful picture book exploring the concept that beauty must be appreciated even in its imperfections, this title will appeal to readers of all ages.
It is a compliment
If you want to enhance both your self-esteem and relationships, it is key to love yourself in all your imperfect glory. Do this by accepting yourself with all your flaws as well as accepting others’ imperfections as part of who they are; but remember, loving and accepting someone doesn’t mean condoning toxic traits or behaviors; if someone in your life lies or cheats or becomes abusive in any way it would be best if they were removed.
While some may view being described as imperfectly perfect as an admiration, others don’t find this phrase to be complimentary at all. According to them, perfect means having no flaws; to them this statement equates to “flawlessly flawed” or “incompletely complete”, which seems contradictory.
Understanding this term requires considering its true meaning. When someone tells you they love every part of you – including any flaws – this should be taken as an affirmation from loved ones that see beyond simply seeing you as another imperfect human being. Learning to embrace one’s imperfections is the key to finding peace and contentment with life – both accepting yourself as you are, as well as encouraging others to do the same.
It is a statement
“Imperfectly perfect” can be used in various contexts to express love for someone with flaws or accept them despite their imperfections, among other uses. Unfortunately, this phrase only applies to humans; telling someone you love them despite their flaws is telling them you think they are your perfect partner and agree with all their imperfections.
Imperfectly perfect is an expressive way of showing how much you care for someone, and can be applied across many types of relationships: romantic, platonic or familial. Saying you accept someone as they are is a wonderful way of showing how much love there is between two individuals.
The imperfect (abbreviated IMPERF) is a French verb form that combines past tense with imperfective aspect, in contrast to preterite forms which refer to one completed event in the past. In English, imperfects are sometimes used when discussing modal verbs.
Paul mentions propheticity, knowledge and speaking in tongues in 1 Corinthians 13:10 as temporary gifts that will eventually pass away. Some cessationists interpret this passage to refer to the return of Christ; temporary sign gifts which will fade with His return will no longer operate after His return has taken place. Others take this verse literally; believing these gifts will operate until all God’s revelation is complete and these temporary signs will cease operating once complete revelation has occurred.
It is a reminder
Life coaches, New Age gurus, and motivational speakers frequently ask their clientele: “Can you picture your ideal life?” The question aims at breaking through mental barriers that stand in their way from finding success and happiness – while also reminding us all that perfection is unobtainable and the journey toward it filled with beautiful imperfections.
Keep this in mind and enjoy the journey – remember that imperfections add color and dimension to life! Don’t strive for perfection; focus instead on progress and enjoy each step along your journey – enjoy every bump along the way and mistake made. Embark upon it together – those moments create unique chapters for future readers of your story!
Brene Brown made an amazing statement: “Perfection isn’t a virtue; it’s a trap.” This quote serves as a timely reminder that perfectionism is only ever going to cause more stress and anxiety, which one of my clients recently sent me as proof. They even put up a post-it note reminding themselves every day that perfectionism will only increase anxiety levels and cause more problems!
Imperfectly Perfect is an uplifting picture book written and illustrated by Perry Emerson that reminds readers it is okay to accept their individual differences and embrace themselves without striving for perfection. Hoang Giang’s amazing illustrations complete the picture book for a delightful read that would make an excellent present for anyone struggling with perfectionism.
It is a way of saying you accept someone
When someone you love calls you “imperfectly perfect”, they are acknowledging your imperfections while still finding you beautiful. Receiving such praise can be a wonderful source of encouragement when feeling insecure or self-critical about yourself or performance; or it can serve as an indicator that someone cares deeply for you and wants you to improve yourself.
Perfectionist tendencies can make it hard to sustain healthy self-esteem and relationships. Perfectionism often develops as a reaction to an emotionally difficult or traumatic childhood experience and leads to feelings of insecurity or rejection or failure which lead to feelings of inferiority, low self-esteem or depression.
Perfection is an illusion and impossible to attain; therefore, focusing on meeting goals and improving yourself rather than beating yourself up for making mistakes can help create a more positive outlook on life and increase quality of life. By learning to let go of perfectionism you can find happiness and freedom!
