#Look Past the Flaws

All of us have flaws.

Every single one of us.

What I've found, is we all tend to notice flaws in other people pretty easily. When we look at someone else, the first thing we notice is that their hair is unbrushed, or that they tell bad jokes. We notice everything that isn't perfect about them. 

And, we judge them for it. 

But, why? 

Why should we make a decision about someone, based on one quality about them that isn't perfect? 

Humans have so many different aspects to them, so many different character traits and qualities. You might not like some of their traits- you might not like that they can sometimes accidentally be rude, or that they get angry easily. 

But, what about all of the good traits?

What about that person's ability to make people feel better when they are upset, or how they help other students who are struggling with subjects at school?

Why do we always have to see the things about people that we don't like?

Can't we focus on the good things about that person, and just accept their flaws?

After all, everyone has flaws. You and me, both. But both of us also have so many good qualities. And, it would be a shame if those good qualities were wasted, just because of one flaw.

Because every single person is more than a few flaws. Our flaws don't define us. 

So next time you see something about someone you don't like, I challenge you to look past it. Take a look at that entire person, their personality, all the good qualities about them. 

See what makes that person amazing.

  3. Yes-- yes, we need to accept people's flaws. The world we live in now is a world where we do tend to judge people immediately, and we need to be able to look past that. <3

    1. Yes, we need to take more time to get to know a person- their good and bad qualities- before we make a decision about them.

  5. This is an amazing post and it's MARVELLOUS. I agree. And sometimes I even wonder if our "flaws" are even flaws?? Or if that's just the way a person is and it's good that they are that way? Idek, but I have wondered that. :)
