Guess What - I Love You

Today the song "perfect" by Pink came on shuffle and it hit me pretty hard.

The chorus-

Pretty, pretty please
Don’t you ever, ever feel
Like you’re less than
less than perfect
Pretty, pretty please
If you ever, ever feel
Like you’re nothing
You are perfect to me

This is going to come out as a jumble of garbled thoughts, but please bear with me. I know the best people on Earth (congrats, that means you). I wish all of my people could see themselves how I see them. Your contributions, your humor, your ability to laugh at yourself, how you love me - it all astounds me. When you think that you are anything less than amazing I just want to shake you and show you how I see you.

The tone of that chorus is almost begging and I get that. We want those we love to love themselves and to be happy. Everyone needs someone they can turn to when they feel like they're nothing.

"you are perfect to me"

I've been listening to that song a lot lately! It's awesome! We're all born perfect, right? I do prefer the DVD version to the radio version tho...
