Is perfectionism what the world is working toward? Or is it what the world should work toward?
We are all guilty of purchases beyond necessity. Some say its a sin, others use it as a tool to validate themselves.
Plastic Surgery, Clothes, Cars, Gadgets, Cosmetics… all consumer the goods that are said to be the gears of the economy.
Plastic Surgery around the world is a booming industry. Yes, some may be because to genuine medical injuries or reasons,
but nevertheless there are still so many people doing it for other reasons.
The motivation and goal to be pretty, to be attractive, to have a sexy body,
to be accepted by society. To be validated by others so they can selfishly feel good about themselves.
How many of us actually surrenders to perfection. The concept of perfection that it is define by our environment and our society.
The real answer lies with your question. Question the question and one will find the answer.
Why does buying a really expensive branded dress matter? to be used and then thrown away?
If we analyse the time you use that dress… is it not to ‘turn heads’ and receive compliments?
So in itself, it is not selfish as all you are doing is to receive validation from others to feed your insecurity?
Are you not confident enough to just stand alone as one person without anything and feel secure?
That will trickle down into questioning yourself, and only to come to the conclusion that there is something wrong with you.
But in true fact, it is the environment the egg is in that makes it cook, not the egg itself.
Question your environment before questioning yourself.
You are not the problem and neither is your environment.
The real problem is how you let your environment influence you.
Surrender not to your environment, instead surrender yourself…
