Perfection is Overrated

Helena Bonham Carter is a great advocate of the belief that perfection is overrated. 

From a young age, everything is based on how good you are at something. How close to perfect you are to beat everyone else. Life is one competition and Perfection is one thing I am now comfortable in coming near the bottom of the pile.

Once upon a time, I had near perfect grades,
but illness shoved them down and away.
Perfection is overrated.

Once upon a time, I was a near perfect friend
but that got thrown in my face
Perfection is overrated.

Once upon a time, I was a near perfect daughter
but depression changed my family
Perfection is overrated

Once upon a time, I had a near perfect relationship
but we grew apart
Perfection is overrated

Once upon a time, I had a near perfect life
but now I realise
Perfection is overrated

Its better to be flawed than perfect. I prefer my life now to what it was then, because I don't have to be in competition with others to be the best because it doesn't bother me any more because perfection really is overrated.
