Everyone has a character Flaw like Monica's snorting Laughter, Ross's overpronouncing each and every word, Joey's Knuckle cracking, phoebe's eating her hair. So do I have character Flaw(s). I am so full of flaws but my flaw is much flawful than these characters of friends. I break things, I am clumsy, I am a bore, I mess things up, I end up losing things.
My Flaw is that, I can't make healthy connections with people and if somehow I manage to make connections with them, insecurities and fears hold me with the grip so tight. My flaw is that I can't move forward with new people but I can move with myself. My flaw is that I can't give the place of my heart that was someone else's. My flaw is that I don't give up on people easily, I let them walk over me, into me. My flaw is that I take time to connect with people. My flaw is that I can't hate people, I can't do what they did to me, I just can't. My flaw is that I accept things that are full of flaws. My flaw is that I look at the things and people, wearing Rose coloured Glasses, I see them Beautiful with their flaws. And I came to conclude that, Flaws are Beautiful, flaws makes us different, flaws makes us want to do better.
My mind is an obstinate thing it does what it wants. What holds me back is my mind and what carries me forward is also my mind. But the point is I don't have the remote control of my mind at this moment.
