I think that many of us strive for perfection. And we are consistently disappointed.
The universe was created from imperfection...Really. The exquisite perfections of our world and far beyond were created by one. Little. Imperfection.
We are all flawed. None of us is perfect. And perhaps there is a real beauty in that. But we are so busy focusing on that ever elusive illusion of perfection that we cannot see it.
I believe that BDSM is the ultimate embracing of imperfection, yet many of us strive to achieve it within that context. I'm not perfect. I want to be. But I am not.
We are imperfect beings living in a universe created by imperfection.
Our flaws make us unique. And perhaps if we spent less time focusing on them, we could accept the perfection in imperfection.
