Perfection is a Facade.

Have you ever thought somebody was that perfect person? Maybe you thought there was just something special about your friend, significant other, classmate or co-worker, or someone that you just admired and looked up to...but, we all know that no one is perfect. If you do not realize that by now, you definitely need to wake up and digest a bite of the real world.
There is nobody, anywhere out there, that is pure perfection with the exception of God.
However, it can be really easy to get caught up in someone and believe in the facade that this certain someone portrays. This person might not mean to seem perfect, but in spite of that, they still come off as perfect.
Deep down you know they are not. It is just common sense that nobody is perfect. Nevertheless, sometimes you unintentionally place someone up on a pedestal without even realizing it. I think most all of us do that to a certain extent; it's just human nature, except in some situations, it can go too far.
We place someone up so high in our minds, and then their imperfections start to show. At that point, we realize that they are merely human and it has the potential to be simply heartbreaking.
That is why sometimes we need to stop it before it goes too far. We need it to dawn on us, early on, that despite all of the great qualities someone might have, they are definitely not perfect. They have faults, difficulties, mistakes, and struggles just like the rest of us. When you finally take the time to think about this and take it all in, it could end up being such a relief.
At last, when you begin to see that nobody can possibly be perfect, you can take a deep breath and maybe, just maybe, be happy with yourself and with the people around you.
