We often become consumed with perfecting some part of ourselves hoping to achieve the most ideal version of ourselves, and seeking perfection is by no means a negative pursuit. Most people have a negative view of the pursuit of perfection for it seems to them to be superficial, but, it is actually incredibly positive to desire perfection in the proper context. We only become superficial in pursuing perfection if we are merely seeking to perfect our bodies and external appearance, but it is admirable to strive to perfect our mind and our soul. We should be relentless in striving for perfection because, although we may never become perfect in our lifetime, we will be closer to perfection than would have been if we had never tried at all. We often lose sight of the fact that we are comprised of not just a body, but a soul which is comprised of a rational mind and an intellect, and we should strive to perfect all these aspects of ourselves. We cannot merely exercise every day and religiously eat healthy, and expect to be a fulfilled person. On the other hand, we cannot spend all of our time reading philosophical texts to expand our mind, and expect to be a fulfilled person.
