Men,

A perfect relationship. A perfect job. Perfect feelings. A perfect friend. Perfect results. A perfect day. What could seem more like the perfect friend than perfection?

We take the desire for it perfectly for granted!

Yet, somehow, perfection often eludes us. I just don’t feel right. My partner turns out to be different from what I thought. I hate my job. Love has let me down. I could feel better. Anyway, I can’t really figure out what I want…or should want.

It seems there are so many ways to express the lack of perfection that actually is in our lives. So why is its absence such a mystery?

What in fact makes perfection such an enemy?

Each man of us is encouraged to examine the unique ways that “I personally” crave for perfection. Each man of us is encouraged to name the personal ways in which perfection is my enemy.

Please add your wisdom to our community.
