The Idea of a Perfect Life

I believe that no one can ever achieve a perfect life, but we have perfect moments. But this is where it becomes a personal matter, since perfection is not something that is attainable, and it differs from person to person. But whatever you might think is perfect, I can tell you that the idea of a perfect life is false. No matter how many celebrities you claim to have a perfect life, even Beyoncé doesn’t live a perfect life.

Life was never meant to be perfect, it was always meant to challenge you, change you, make you think, push the limits and get out of your comfort zone. If you had this perfect life we all so desperately want, what would be the point? We would not want to improve ourselves or those around us, we would not have to help people, we would not even have any sense of community; looking at the bigger picture, we wouldn’t have this sense of humanity. Societies and communities are built on the fact that there is a common struggle, a need for people to come to together to help others. As crazy as it sounds, we need to lead imperfect lives to live life and have a purpose to keep going.

If we have automatically reached this perfect life, then there’s nothing to us or to our existence. We live this perfect life, but eventually, we would be part of this simple mind-numbing routine of doing nothing beneficial for ourselves or anyone else.

The perfect life can never happen, because then what would we want to attain? What goal would we have? What would our point be? An imperfect life gives us the chance to experience the good and bad of life, to try new things, to change ourselves and the world around us.

To me, at least, a perfect life sounds anything but perfect. I want the challenges, the good and the bad, the joy and confusion… I want the whole mess that life has to offer because then that means that I am alive and that I am living my life. And that I have control over my life, and that I can do whatever I want. The Perfect life would constrict me to this perfect life, with no room to try something else or another idea of the perfect life.
