Accepting your imperfections

It would be difficult for anyone to find or have inner peace when they can’t accept their imperfections. Unfortunately, the desire for perfection and a need for inner peace will always be a source of conflict.

I have seen people close to me feel the need to change something because they want it better than the way they have it now. It simply doesn’t end well. We need to be grateful and content on …
