“I’m not infallible; I’ve made mistakes,” my sociology professor, Mr. Hearn, admitted. To some individuals, this statement might not have any significant meaning. However, for many college students, admitting that you’re not perfect could be the exact weight needed to be removed from your back-pack strained shoulders.
Flaws are like clothes; everyone is garbed in their fair share. Not any one single person on this earth was granted the ever-so-beautiful characteristic of perfection. Why? Because there is no such thing. Perfection is a concept, a theory, a product of the imagination…but it isn’t real. Everyone has their bad hair days, has slept through the morning alarm, and yes-everyone has even gotten the occasional pimple or two. It’s completely normal.
In realizing this, the next step is to accept it. As a college student there will be choices you’ll regret, mistakes made, and moments you’ll never be able to erase. That’s the beauty of life though. You’re not infallible, and because of that, your wisdom will continue a never ending cycle of growth. Embrace it.
