You Can Never Hide Your Imperfections: The Unacceptable Truth Of Life

Your dragons will not cease to exist, no matter how well you build the walls of spirituality around them.

The above quote by Kristina Mand-Lakhiani has been taken from her book, Becoming Flawesome. Flawesome is the signature word by Kristina that beautifully merges “flaw” and “awesome,” highlighting the empowering idea that you are truly incredible, not despite your flaws, but because of them. It embraces the concept that your imperfections when embraced, add to your overall awesomeness. Being “flawesome” means acknowledging and embracing your flaws while still recognizing and celebrating your remarkable qualities. The book is a guide toward the transformative journey of self-discovery and self-acceptance.

Discover the meaning of the quote

In the above quote, the author describes your imperfections as dragons. The dragons symbolize the hidden or darker sides of your character, the aspects that you may not be proud of or that society may deem unacceptable. As a human, we often cover our imperfections with spiritual boundaries. But, she says imperfections are the ultimate truth of human life that no one can ever escape. It might sound complicated, but the quote carries a simple meaning. No matter how hard you try, you can never hide the reality of your nature or personality, especially your flaws. 

Learn from the example

Ok, let’s understand this with an example. Imagine you’re quick-tempered. You occasionally lose your patience with others. But we all know that people often don’t like short-tempered people. For instance, you might try to build a spiritual facade to please the people around you. You will try to cover yourself and project an image of calmness and serenity.

However, despite your best efforts, there will be moments when everything will go in vain. Your temper will flare up, and you cannot control it. The demon inside you will win over the spiritual boundaries. Thus, rather than running away from your imperfections, why don’t you accept them? Tell the people around you that you’re short-tempered, and those who actually care will stay with you despite your flaws.

Further, you can work on your imperfection only when this opens the door to your happiness. In such cases, you may start practicing meditation and other therapies. But it totally depends on yourself and how you accept you. It’s not about the society and people around you for whom you need to change yourself.

Flaws- your ultimate reality

Thus, the essence of this quote is that no one can escape from your darker secrets or flaws. The quote reminds us that denying or ignoring our less desirable qualities is not the solution. Rather than building walls to imprison these dragons, it is healthier to acknowledge and understand them.

Recognize and accept your vulnerabilities. Then, work to manage and transform them. In this way, you can strive for personal growth and inner harmony. The dragons may always exist within us, but with self-awareness and self-acceptance, we can learn to coexist with them and fulfill life’s challenges effectively.

#Becomingflawesome: The art of living

This is just one quote; the book Becoming Flawesome by Kristina Mand-Lakhiani carries several such thoughts that will help you to understand life better. The book opens the gateway toward self-discovery.

In conclusion, hiding your flaws isn’t possible. Thus, instead of running away from them, just accept your flaws and embrace them.
