Rather than portraying a perfect exterior, what I really much rather is to get to know people’s flaws.
Not to see the worst in people, but rather, I feel that if I know your flaws and can accept them, that I truly know who you are. I can’t handle only knowing the good side, but I want to know the bad as well.
And knowing myself, I realise I’m ok with dealing with people’s flaws (not all the time, but sometimes). I’m ok with letting people do what they want and make their own decisions about stuff, I’m really not the kind to impose what I think on other people.
