I am perfectly imperfect

There are many things about my body that make me feel self-conscious. A big nose, highly defined collarbones, looking older than my age on some days and acne on my face, chest and back. I’ve spent so much on acne products in the past few years, I could have started a business with all that money…lol.

I’ve been working on my self-esteem though. Most people around me don’t realize that I’m shy because I try so hard not to be. But deep down, I just want to keep to myself for fear of saying the wrong thing, being misunderstood or worse still, being asked about some of my physical ‘flaws’…like I’m not already overly aware of them…ha!

Anyway, these ‘flaws’ haven’t really helped my social skills. But in recent times, I’ve learned to focus on and appreciate my strengths more.

No one is perfect but we were all beautifully and wonderfully made by God. So yeah, this project is really close to my heart and it took a lot of courage and second-guessing.

Oh well, I guess I’m a work in progress, perfectly imperfect.
