Since we were little kids, all of us have been in a constant search of different ways to relate to others and to make us relatable.
As kids, our innocence was the natural pull that made us relatable to one another. As adults, our commonly shared roller-coaster ride kind of life experiences have replaced our childhood innocence and have become the magnetic force that helps us establish much needed interpersonal relationships.
Many people long and crusade for a perfect life. Not only is this concept an unrealistic one, but also, even if it were realizable, how boring would it be to lead a life of perfection? What makes life interesting usually is the very thing that we are trying to be rid of, the imperfection, whatever it may be to you. In my case, I believe that imperfection in the form of various mistakes is what gives me the last memories that I can share with my friends. And the lessons that I learn from each one of the mistakes are what makes me become contemplative, reflective, and mature.
Majority of people don’t have a perfect life. But we do have a rich amassment of not only the gratifying, but also the disappointing life experiences, both of which can assist in making us be relatable.
