Perfection Within

There is within us an idea of a perfect person. Instinctively, we assume that the closer we get to that image, the happier we’re going to be. That image is formed from comparing ourselves with others.

When we compare we usually compare or weaknesses with someone elses’s strength. There’s no such thing as the perfect person but if we are to compare ourselves to someone why not compare ourselves to, in my case, Christ (or other religious figure who were deemed perfect)?

After talking to a few people about this, I realized that not everybody had an ideal self. Those with pride don’t thrive to get better, they think they’re already there. If there’s a belief to be always right or perfect, why would there be a desire to excel? Why would there be a need to get better if perfection is already at their footsteps?
