Everyone is born with a capacity to learn how to dream and the humans who lived before us taught us how to dream the way society dreams. Every single individual has defined and self-imagined themselves based of it.
We have our own image of perfection. We have our own definition of success and failure, pain and pleasure, happiness and sorrow.
Our image of perfection is the reason we reject ourselves, it is why we don’t accept ourselves the way we are, and why we don’t accept others the way they are. Our definition of success and happiness is the reason why we reject our failure and why we live a sorrowful life.
There is nothing wrong with defining all this, but it becomes a disaster when we start believing and accepting it with our lives.
