How I got my tumblr name?
Hmmm..well I talked about it a little in my first blog. My tumblr name is AnImperfectAngel. I’m not gonna lie I pilfered the actual name from a Mariah Carey cd (guilty), but it does carry some meaning for me. I don’t know much but it seems to me that it’s becoming harder and harder to be optimistic in this world. Nowadays, lying and cheating and using people to get what you want seem to be the norm; everybody expects it and I guess that makes it okay. And everyone just protects themselves by not trusting anyone. Believe me, I’m all for not being naive or even being picky about who you decide to trust. The problem is that when you don’t trust anyone one but yourself, you act like it. You treat people like they can’t be trusted and you make decisions based on the fact that everyone around you probably has ulterior motives. It’s funny because living like that sorta kills the innocence in a person and, to me, it kills the light right out of life. I mean, yeah some people do have the intention to lie, cheat, use, and abuse others but damn if I had to go through life feeling that way about everybody — life.would.suck. Trusting in the good in people, or even trusting that there IS good in everyone means taking a big risk. You risk a lot — your money, your hopes & secrets, your feelings, your heart — but I’d rather risk all of that than be forced to live a life guarded from everyone around me, a life where it’s impossible to be truly, genuinely yourself. Well that’s where the Angel comes from —-> cause I have to believe that there is an angel side to everyone…there’s good in everybody and I try my best to keep my eyes on that. And the Imperfect — hell I have flaws (who doesn’t?) and I know it. I can be selfish at times, I nag when I need attention, I’m a bitch when you piss me off, I have too much pride for my own good, I’m stubborn and honestly I could go on all day (but I bet your list is longer than mine!). But just like everyone else…there’s hell of a lot of good in me, too. Im just AnImperfectAngel out here. Who are you?
