La epidemia de la perfección

Dejemos de lado la problemática de la imagen perfecta e irreal que te venden por todos lados. Hablemos de la perfección a nivel mental, a nivel persona. Vemos por todos lados como las personas "manejan" su vida, como son exitosos en sus carreras, sus trabajos, sus relaciones interpersonales y nosotros... estamos acá.
Constantemente me encuentro con compañeras y amigas que parecieran tener todo resuelto en sus vidas mientras que yo apenas consigo vivir la mía, ¿qué estoy haciendo mal? Creer que tienen todo resuelto en sus vidas. Me pasó hace un tiempo que veía a mis amigas tener cosas que yo no tenía, realizar cosas que yo siempre quise hacer y nunca tuve la oportunidad, y me sentía inferior. Sí, así era. Pero era cuestión de hablar y ver que no todo es tan perfecto. No, con esto no me refiero que al ver que ellas también tenían sus cuestiones me hacía sentir mejor persona, no. Sino que ver que todos tenemos cuestiones me hizo ver que todos somos personas y cada uno lidia con las cosas a su manera. No existe la perfección, no hay un modelo con pautas a seguir al que tenemos que llegar. Sí estoy a favor de perseguir ser lo más perfectos que podamos en nuestras imperfecciones, en otras palabras, mejorar como personas siendo conscientes de nuestros límites.
"Errar es humano", y así aprendemos.

It's like you're screaming, and no one can hear
You almost feel ashamed
That someone could be that important
That without them, you feel like nothing
No one will ever understand how much it hurts
You feel hopeless; like nothing can save you
And when it's over, and it's gone
You almost wish that you could have all that bad stuff back
So that you could have the good

Ways to cope with stress

Deny it. Think you're not stressed at all, it's just a feeling people get when they see you chewing the same gum for hours until your jaw aches. Keep on drinking green tea and downloading inspirational pictures to use as wallpapers, so Audrey Kitching of you. Write neverending lists of thing you need to do, "just so they don't hang in the back of your mind". Procrastinate, you are so relaxed about all those pending things you still haven't done that you sit and watch a movie. Freak out. Realize all the time in the world is not enough for you to get everything done. And what's worse, you don't want to do any of it. Wonder, would I be kicked out of my job? Would I loose the subject? Would I fail the exam? Find strength. Re watch Devil wears Prada for the hundrieth time just so you can focus just as Andy did and get your shit together. As soon as you finish the movie you realize you've lost most of your day and now you have to cook super and so you're out of time. Well, nevermind, tomorrow it's another day to go back through all the stages again.

You want to be strong, you need to be strong. You don't want the other one to fill you up, but you feel empty. Nothing suits you. What is it with us "super-strong" girls who are actually not all that strong but rather quite a mess? I want to feel free, not worrying about anything not worth worrying for. Yet, here I am.
There's this every day battle that I rarely win, lately. I want to be better, but I don't feel better. I want to go back to that full of light kid but I am stuck in this don't-want-to-anything person. It's annoying. it's frustrating. It's a cicle.
And I want to stopt complaining!

You got me sippin' on something
I can't compare to nothing
I've ever known, I'm hoping
That after this fever I'll survive
I know I'm acting a bit crazy
Strung out, a little bit hazy
Hand over heart, I'm praying
That I'm gonna make it out alive

The bed's getting cold and you're not here
The future that we hold is so unclear
But I'm not alive until you call
And I'll bet the odds against it all
Save your advice 'cause I won't hear
You might be right but I don't care
There's a million reasons why I should give you up
But the heart wants what it wants
The heart wants what it wants

You got me scattered in pieces
Shining like stars and screaming
Lighting me up like Venus
But then you disappear and make me wait
And every second's like torture
Heroin drip, no more so
Finding a way to let go
Baby, baby, no, I can't escape

The bed's getting cold and you're not here
The future that we hold is so unclear
But I'm not alive until you call
And I'll bet the odds against it all
Save your advice 'cause I won't hear
You might be right but I don't care
There's a million reasons why I should give you up
But the heart wants what it wants
The heart wants what it wants

This is a modern fairytale
No happy endings
No wind in our sails
But I can't imagine a life without
Breathless moments
Breaking me down
