If we had no faults of our own, we would not take so much pleasure in noticing those of others. ~Francois duc de la Rochefoucauld
I, for one, have a very hard time not looking at a person and finding their faults. I don't WANT to do it, and most of the time it is just a thought that pops in my head. I very rarely put words to these thoughts, but I AM human and it does happen.
I am very self conscious. I see my flaws as if they are magnified 100x, and I will often point them out before someone else can comment.
I know I find the fault in others as a way to try to make myself feel better on the inside. This is an awful, hurtful practice. This is something I have been working on for the better part of my adult life. I have spent many hours working on my faults, and trying to beautify myself so I can better appreciate the beauty in others. I want to live by the words - Imperfection is perfect.
