Accepting your own flaws is harder than accepting someone else’s flaws. You can always escape from someone else one way or another, even if just for a couple of hours. But you can never escape from yourself, so your flaws are always there, trying to play peek-a-boo with you whenever they feel like it, usually at the most inconvenient moments possible. Wouldn’t it be great if we had a Sleeping Beauty timer on our flaws? It would only allow our flaws to show when they could help us gain favor somehow, like showing someone we care about that yes, we’re human too and make mistakes. The rest of the time we should be able to let our flaws stay dormant and appear to be Super Girls and Boys to everyone else.
(I know, I know. That’s not how life works. A girl can always dream, right?)
