Almost Perfect

And never believe
in any word, you’ve said.
I thought it was perfect.
Yes, it was! Almost, Perfect.

It’s the time when you thought
you’ve got everything.
But when you open your eyes,
you’ve actually got nothing.

Its when everything
seems so perfect.
But in reality,
It was all in a dream.

Just when you thought
someones’ gonna make you happy.
You’d realize
it was all just a game.

I keep wondering
was it just me?
Or was it you and me
should be blamed for challenging the “fate”

I almost believed
it was perfect.
But towards the end,
One thing was gone: Respect.

I almost gave in.
Another time wasted.
I should have not believed.
For you are just make-believe.

Perfect in my heart may be,
You’ve got me so damn crazy.
I should’ve just played
fairly in your game.

And never believe
in any word, you’ve said.
I thought it was perfect.
Yes, it was! Almost.

We all have this ideal version of ourselves. We always want a better version of ourselves. We cannot deny the fact that we have insecurities. As for the ideal version of myself, I wish that I am a talented person. I wish that I can dance and sing as much as the singer and dancer do. I also wish that I am more genius as much as the other geniuses do. Sometimes, I also wish that I have a lot of money so that I can buy whatever I want. I wish that I’am more lucky like the others.

ACT-182 My Ideal version of me is that I want it to be more confident in everything, be optimistic, not shy with other people just like can easily talk and have a conversation, can handle responsibilities, can open up easily to parents and younger brother, can manage time, to be more mature, to study well, and to be a person who can achieve all her goals and dreams. My ideal version of me is really different from what I am now like I’m not that confident in everything that I would hesitate everytime I will do something, I can’t really… Read more »

We all have different standards or perception to someone or to ourselves. Especially when we are wanting something that we don’t have, we tend to look for its good and bad sides. My ideal self that I want to be is fearless and a genius person. I want to face things without fear and I want to be confident. Because being confident is something where you can do everything you want and you will look for so many ways to find things out. And being confident is also being genius. If I reached the top of myself, I can be… Read more »

Galera, Peachy C. ACT 182 Everyone of us is dreaming that we as a person, that someday we are now the better or best rather, best version of ourselves. Maybe some of us are thinking and kept on asking “why is it I am not perfect?” “what’s wrong with myself that I do not have this everything?”. Most of us have this insecurities of lacking. Insecurities of having that particular asset that actually you’re not possessing. But don’t you ever think that maybe there is a reason? There is a real reason why there is no perfect at all.

Ideal Self is our impossible self. It’s the idealized image that we demands to be, to reach, to exceed, a perfect ‘Us’, a perfect ‘Me’. The Perfect ‘Camielle’ I’ve wished to be is the one that feels joy. ‘Camielle’ that loves her flaws, and does not care anything about what people says about her. ‘Camielle’ who laughs when she’s happy, cries when she’s sad but, who will still wipe her tears away and continues to pursue her dreams. Unfortunately, she’s just a dream, an ideal version of herself. The real ‘Camielle’ is weaker. She hides herself behind a pen name.… Read more »

ACT 182 Knowing the version of myself seems so tiring like I want everything to be perfectly in place, is just that reaching your ideal means there’s no room for improvement. The ideal version of myself is the one who gone through the process, experiences and have acquired set of knowledge that has been applied to his life, someone who is know he’s worth, know how to love himself, appreciate everything, can control and put emotions in place and most importantly knows how to deal with people’s different perceptions.

ACT184 Ideal Self vs. Real Self I am perfectly imperfect. I’m that kind of girl who happens to be always alone not because I got no friend but because I enjoy the company of peace. Maybe that’s how dangerous loneliness can be. It’s addictive and once you realize that there’s so much peace in there, you wouldn’t like to deal with people for some moment of your life. I’m actually an introvert person but I got a lot of dreams in life to the point where I want to change my life. I’m creative, emotional, quite boring, sweet, lazy, and… Read more »

This ideal self can be possibly achieved or not it’s all depend on our willingness or our eagerness to be that kind of you. My ideal self is a kind of me that is very smart and achiever. A kind of me that is well known for being the best in academic. Where I can make my parents proud of me and I can… Read more »

And ideal version of myself, is the one who confidently inspires people, BUT there’s a hindrance for me to be successful in it, I lack confidence.

We all have our ideal selves. Something that would make us different from who we really are. I, as well, have my ideal self, and it is to be a typical pretty, and slightly rich, city girl who excels in academics. To be someone who is confident of herself and not afraid of people. And also, to be a person who is never afraid to trust and express herself to people close to her. Having these views about my ideal self is somehow the fruit of knowing and reflecting about my ownself. But still, I know, nothing beats your real… Read more »

We all realize that all the achievements, the recognition and rewards will result to satisfaction. We will feel full and great because of them. Likewise, we also have the ideals of our own selves, what attitudes we want to have, the habits and all that defines us. We have this ideal self concept because of what we invision ourselves in the future. Sharing my own wants… Read more »

Sometimes our ideal self is what we dream about in our life. For me my ideal self was so different in my real self today. I wish I was born rich so me and my family don’t have to suffer just to survive in everyday of our life. Another is I dream that I became a CPA and got many investments like in… Read more »

Confidently, saying a speech in front of many people, confidently making some decisions and confidently by means of saying and expressing what I want to express or what I feel. To become a fearless one by means of overcoming challenges that I’ve encounter because most of the time fear becomes a burden for us to do what we really want to do.

My ideal self would be someone who isn’t a shy type person. Someone who excell in everything, smart, have many friends, and someone who is brave enough to face any challenges. In reality, I was a shy type and a quiet person. I wasn’t that smart either. I may look strong but internally, I was weak. I also prefer to have few friends than having many fake friends because that’s really toxic. My ideal self is so much better than what I am today. But of course, I’d still prefer my real self cause that’s what makes me who I… Read more »

We often hurt ourselves by not meeting our expectations. Sometimes we would expect too much and fail to succeed. Sometimes we feel regret when we expect less than what we can actually do.

ACT 184. Ideal self vs. Real self | First of all, I’m not perfect but when I dream, it was always perfect. I’m always perfect when I closed my eyes imagining that I’m always at the top. But when I opened my eyes – I’m falling, falling down to the ground that I need to look up again, face the reality, and have a lot of challenges need to overcome.
