Perfection and the Youth

Perfection. Is it real? Does it exist?
If you ask me, perfection exists but only in theory. It is what you might describe as an enigma that has eluded man for ages straight. Let us brainstorm...

According to Wikipedia, "Perfection is, broadly, a state of completeness and flawlessness."
I find it hard to believe that in this modern age and era, a Youth could possibly aspire to be anything like that.
Isn't it boring? I mean seriously, ask any old timer, your dad, if you may but they would all tell you that the best time of your life will always be your Youth and that you should live everyday of that time to the fullest. Make as many mistakes as you can, drink, experiment(on drugs or whatever)... Just Live!

I've watched as so many 'young people' continue to 'destroy' their lives by trying albeit unhappily to be perfect but that experiment is just another shot in the dark, a misconception.

One famous musician said it: "Life is for living, not living up-tight."....So let us all learn to take chances, live everyday like it was our last, leave old memories in the past, have fun...the whole package
To continue to believe in this myth called Perfection will eventually rob us of our youth. Lets face it, that little perfect world you all envision, where you do whatever you are told, follow every rule and never make mistakes just does not exist and if you think it does and want to justify it, ask yourself this:

How do i define perfection?
What can i do to get closer to being perfect?

Well, you could also just try to be like Jesus, The Bible says he was the only perfect person to ever walk this earth and that is by becoming a Christian but there are a few things to come to terms with viz;

A) Christianity is a way to Perfection after death. It is not a way to be closer to Perfection while alive.
B) Christianity is a way to Perfection after death, and a way to get closer to Perfection while alive.

So have you decided that living in this world is a daring adventure and that it would take more than a 'perfect youth' to survive under all the pressure, sometimes you have to bend the rules..a little bit.
