Intentionally Flawed To Make Us Unique

This post was for last night, just as I was about to post it, my power went out and it was out for a while, I ended up going to bed... so today, I will post this one and another one later tonight. 

This phrase 'Intentionally flawed to make us unique' (Rick Warren) resonated with me... every person I know has what they consider to be flaws but what if those so called flaws are what makes us unique...  Why are we always trying to fit in, be like other people?  I have been guilty of this is the past but not in the past ten years or so.  I want to celebrate what makes me unique, the older I get the more that I believe my that unique qualities are what makes me special.

I don't want to be cookie cutter person, I want to be me, my quirkiness and all.  When I tried to be like others, following the pack... I was just very unhappy, I didn't even know who I was... it is a very long process to get through, learning to be comfortable in my own skin.  I tell my Valentina as I told Andrea to love themselves for who they are, I needed to take my own advise.

What if the very thing I have been fighting and disliking about myself is really what will make me a better person?  All those so called flaws are just our weaknesses or fears that try to hold us back... I don't want to be held back any longer... I don't want to be held back with what if's and why's?

Going forward, my flaws will become my strengths... I will love my flaws, give them light.... hiding them will only hurt me... I am bringing them into the light one at a time.

I cherish my past, I accept my present and I dream for my future


  1. lets try not to conform too much to society

  2. This is the best way to think of it--true friends are the ones who love you the most--flaws and all, no matter what!

  3. Some times what we may be considering flaws or quirkiness about ourselves may be what others like about us too! We are all one of a kind and that should be celebrated. Nice post!

  4. You are right Sayid... don't conform, stand out and shine your light:)
