How To Embrace Your Flaws

Berenice Mulubah 




I am perfect, but I am not flawless.  I am so full of flaws, it's not even funny. Everything about me is flawsome, but to most, I do come off as flawless because I have embraced my flaws. That takes courage, strength and spiritually, especially, living in a world that is obsessed with being flawless.  Trying to live a flawless life in a flawsome world is stressful.  Why go through all that stress, when you could be free and happy being flawsome?  Don't get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with you trying to improve your life and correct your flaws, there is nothing wrong with that at all, just do it for your personal growth and not for approval.  
If you are tired stressing over your flaws, and want to come to the other side, living a happy flawsome life, here are some tips. 


Appreciate your individuality

Your flaws may make you different from everybody else, but that's a good thing! Don't make the mistake of trying to fit the mold.


Put things in perspective

Instead of focusing on everything that's bothering you, grab a notepad and jot down three things you are grateful for. Wouldn't you rather have your health and your beautiful family than be a stunning beauty without those precious gifts?


Make your flaws famous

Lady Gaga  responded to criticism of her weight gain by launching a "Body Revolution," posting pics of herself in a bra and underwear and encouraging fans to do the same. "May we make our flaws famous, and thus redefine the heinous," Gaga wrote on her blog.


Flip your flaw

If you can find the strength in your flaw, you're a lot more likely to own it. For example, if you've always considered yourself quiet and shy, that probably means you're an amazing listener and observer.


Don't compare yourself

Let this be the year of you. Stop comparing yourself to others and love yourself for who you are — the good, the bad and the ugly. Everyone has their own idiosyncrasies. That's what makes life interesting!


Be flawsome

Yes, flawsome is an actual term. It was coined by trendwatching.com to describe brands that show humanity by being open about their flaws. In their words, "Human nature dictates that people have a hard time genuinely connecting with, being close to, or really trusting other humans who (pretend to) have no weaknesses, flaws, or mistakes." Who wants that? Embrace your flaws — and be flawsome!
