Perfection at it’s most Perfect…

…doesn’t exist

.

Your idea of perfection is not my idea of perfection,
My idea of perfection is not yours.
That doesn’t necessarily mean we’re wrong,
Just different, like everyone is.

The world would not be better if everyone thought like me,
It would be boring and stagnant, and a little frenetic.
The world would not be better if everyone thought like you,
I would be boring and stagnant and (insert another characteristic that applies to you).

The world is best when we’re all thinking…
Thinking about what we can do.

The world is best when we’re talking…
Talking to each other instead of at each other, or worse, waiting for the next opportunity to talk.

The world is best when we’re listening…
Listening to what each other are saying rather than waiting for a chance to disagree.

The world is best when we’re acting…
Acting on our beliefs to make the world a better place.

But when these things stop working, we all suffer.
I hope we can decide together to stop suffering.

If we want to stop suffering, we have to stop seeking things to disagree on, and be willing to focus on the things we do agree on.

Otherwise, we’re not going anywhere.
