Why Be Only Awesome When You Can Be ‘Simply Flawsome’?

Why do we all run after perfection? Why is being awesome the best? Embrace your flaws and be a human being. Just be flawsome!

Why do we all run after perfection? Why is being awesome the best? Embrace your flaws and be a human being. Just be flawsome!

Whether its our life, mood, thoughts or our relations, nothing is 100 % perfect. We spend all our life pondering, correcting ourselves somehow, to achieve perfection. We want a perfect life with perfect relations, perfect offspring, perfect life partner, perfect holiday, perfect body, and the list goes on..

The reason is, Perfection suggests a state of flawlessness and a ‘human being’ who is full of flaws, relentlessly tries to showcase themselves as perfectly awesome person. Ironical, isn’t it?

What is ‘Being Awesome’ to you?

Awesomeness is a subjective concept, totally influenced by opinions and emotions. From intelligence to beauty to confidence and mannerism, its meaning changes from person to person. Whatever be the perception, most importantly it makes us feel special. We want to have at least one such virtue which makes us cut above the rest of the world.

And what if we have one already?

Then either we feel envious or depressed by the fact that someone else is superior to us


we are afraid to show it to the world just because we know, with exposure comes criticism. “What if someone mocks me or does not like me this way” because we can’t stand repudiation. It hurts us.

Why do we bother so much about someone else’s opinion and remarks? Why don’t we accept the fact that we are and will always remain with flaws whatsoever? And if we can’t become flawless then why not have a fresh perspective towards life, towards ourselves?

Let’s give ourselves a new definition – FLAWSOME

Flawsome is the new word in my dictionary. This synergy of two words ‘Flaws’ and ‘Awesome’ describes a person who accepts themselves irrespective of their flaws and knows that they are awesome regardless. It would not be wrong to say that it is the word which best describes a person and every minutiae associated with them.

Self-acceptance is the key to be flawsome

Embrace your limitations whole heartedly, whether it is about your body features, body weight, chronic diseases, your failures or your nature, BECAUSE IT IS YOURS.

It is our flaws which makes us unique. Moreover, that is what we always wanted to be – being unique; different from others.

As a matter of fact, accepting the ‘genuine you’ is hard. It requires a lot of guts and courage to be honest, to accept one’s flaws. But trust me, there is no better feeling in this world than being comfortable in your own skin. You won’t have to pretend what you are not.

“Better a diamond with a flaw than a pebble without one” – Confucius

Just be yourself. Do what you love to do. Help others in small little ways. Don’t just smile, laugh out loud. Laugh at your own mistakes because you are human, because imperfection is beautiful , because you are flawsome and flawsome is the new awesome.
