Perfection can't be loved, it can merely be admired. We fall in love with people because they're imperfect, for their imperfections are what makes them special thus, they become irreplaceable and dear. Beautiful things aren't perfect, your hand is beautiful just because your fingers aren't straight!
Often, relationships fail because people couldn't accept themselves and went through a relationship seeking acceptance from their partners. The fact is, no matter how much attention and love you'll get from your partner, it can never fill the void your lack of acceptance for yourself is leaving. You shouldn't look for others' approval because approval should come out from within you. If you can't accept yourself, how can you expect acceptance from someone else?
No one is flawless, but sometimes we find it hard to accept this, thus having a flaw might be a reason why we see ourselves sometimes unworthy, unworthy to marry, to be loved and accepted... Which is totally wrong, perfection can't be loved, we love someone who's imperfect, perfectly.
You have to understand that just because there are prettier people, it doesn't mean that you are ugly,
just because there are skinnier people, it doesn't mean that you are fat,
and just because there are smarter people, it doesn't mean that you are dumb..
And the truth is that somebody’s going to love you just the way you are, and it’s not going to matter that there are prettier, skinnier or smarter outside.
But before that happens, don’t be afraid to fall in love with yourself!
