Some of the lyrics to this song are definitely appropriate for us women who oftentimes feel like “we are less than perfect” (by the way, this is the clean version).
PERFECT: Having all the required or “desirable” elements, qualities, or characteristics; as good as it is possible to be.
So, now that we have established perfect doesn’t mean without flaw, let’s move on. It’s time for you to let go of all the past hurt and pain that people have inflicted upon you because of their insecurities. Because of them, you have been in bondage for years and feeling less than perfect. Today, is your day to begin to move past that. Have a good cry, if necessary. Purge all negative thoughts from your mind.
We look at the celebrities and often admire them for being glamorous. Sometimes, we even allow ourselves to become depressed because we feel like we don’t have it going on they way they do. The truth of the matter is we have to be disciplined to make sacrifices like they have. We have to hit the gym and change our diets or cut back on our eating if we want to lose weight. Find the makeup that’s right for you. Find the clothes that fit your body type. Create your own style. You never have to be envious of anyone. Be your own beautiful, bad self. Be you. We all want to be glamorous, but check out the definition below; it’s just not based on outward beauty as people would have you think.
GLAMOUR: The attractive or exciting quality that makes certain people or things seem appealing or special (allure, attraction, fascination, charm). Glamour is just not just being physically attractive, but attractive on the inside as well.
People have torn you down. Forget about them! Put them on the back burner of your mind. They are irrelevant and if they’re not, they should be. If you have zero self-esteem (like I once had), devise a list of all of your positive attributes. You will be pleasantly surprised how quickly that list fills up. Now, if you are feeling so low and so down and out, and can’t think of a single, solitary positive thing, ask someone you can trust to help you start your list.
I was in a relationship once with someone who tried to make me feel less than perfect by talking about my flaws. What they didn’t know was that I had already been done that road. I knew what my flaws were and had allowed myself to be impacted by them negatively for years until one day I realized that my flaws made me unique. I am free from that mindset, and will never allow anyone to make me feel less than perfect again.
Don’t you ever feel like you’re less than perfect — because…
