How to embrace your flaws

Each of us is likely to have a personality characteristic or physical feature that irritates us. You may always feel unprepared for the big interview, or you may believe you're too curvaceous to pull off that 'gram-worthy attire; or you may believe your shyness prevents you from striking up fascinating conversations.

Do you think you can relate to this? Perfectionism is promoted as an ideal state on social media, and our growing social presence may lead us to assume that we must always be at our best.

Although being a perfectionist can make you ambitious, does striving for perfection make you feel good about yourself? The idea of perfection is unachievable, and accepting our flaws allows us to live a genuine and happy life. This article will explain to you how to embrace your flaws and make it easier!


Take pride in your uniqueness

Your imperfections may set you apart from the rest of the pack, but that's a good thing! Make sure you're not trying to fit into a mold. 


Consider Madonna’s gap teeth or Barbra Streisand’s nose: both features are taken as “flaws” for not being within the beauty standards, but both celebrities “re-signified” these details, and today these features are taken as hallmarks of their personalities.


Use your imperfections as a compass for self-improvement

Accepting your weaknesses does not preclude you from improving. Recognizing defects provides you with the opportunity to work on them in some circumstances. If you want to change a defect in your personality, go for it!

Recognize what's upsetting you

It's difficult to accept your imperfections without first knowing the source of your problems. Look beneath the defects to discover if there are any concerns that need to be addressed.

Don't let your shortcomings keep you from achieving your goals

You are capable of accomplishing anything that others are capable of. Imagine if you chose to dwell on your differences rather than embrace them and go on with your life. Please don't allow this to happen!

Don't compare yourself to others

Allow this year to be the year of you. Stop comparing yourself to others and start loving yourself for who you are, flaws and all. Everybody has their own peculiarities. That's what keeps things exciting in life!

Put things into context

Grab a paper and write down three things you're grateful for instead of focusing on everything that's troubling you. Wouldn't it be better to have your health and a lovely family than to be a dazzling beauty without those gifts?

Turn your flaw around

The first step toward accepting your flaws is to be aware of them and change your mindset about how you see yourself. Stop considering yourself as inferior or lacking in particular areas and begin to perceive yourself as a complete, albeit flawed, person. 


Furthermore, upon contemplation, you may discover that your flaws or imperfections provide you with a distinct advantage. You're much more inclined to own your flaw if you can discover the strength in it. For example, if you've always been quiet, it's likely that you're a fantastic observer.

Accept that you are flawsome

Yes, there is such a thing as flawsome. Human nature mandates that people have a hard time connecting with, being close to, or truly trusting other humans who (appear to) have no problems, flaws, or mistakes. Who would want that? Accept and flaunt your defects — and be flawsome!
