In a world where perfection is praised above all else, you might feel a need to act as if everything is wonderful in your life. Maybe you’ve acted this way for so long, you started to believe the persona you’ve put forth. What a sad lie to live. Perfection offers no growth—it’s perfect—it has no need to change.
A person who truly wants to become something special is always honest with themselves. Maybe having the courage to let those faults hang out when others are around is too much to ask, but don’t do such a disservice to yourself. You cannot change what you refuse to recognize. An honest assessment will always be the first step to bettering yourself.
