So what’s the point in all this? It’s obvious that I’m far from perfect- none of us are, right? But by accepting that, I often wonder whether I’m achieving anything. Does accepting you have flaws mean you’re well on your way to a path of self acceptance, confidence and perfect personhood? Well, the short answer is no. The long answer requires a more detailed explanation.
A quote from Booker T. Washington, who if you didn’t know- was a pretty fucking awesome guy. He was born into slavery and yet managed to overcome his oppression and become an extremely powerful African-American leader. He even advised the President, and he spent his life using his political prowess to gain blacks equal social rights. Cool dude. (Thanks Wikipedia)
