So many of us pull strands of hair out of our scalp
all in the name of perfection, but why chase this illusion?
There's true beauty in being perfectly imperfect.

Nice turn of phrase. This is especially poignant for young girls who are pressured by society to look and act a certain way

I totally agree. It is why we shouldn't sue each other, in my opinion. We are human thus the term 'human error', plus I'm pretty sure if one achieves perfection they needn't be born again. Good write! All the best ... CayCay
