Practically Perfect In Every Way
It must be hard to be perfect. I went to school with a few people who seemed perfect, who could never do any wrong. They were nice to everyone, cheerful, moral and involved in everything... I cordially despised them. But now I think about it, and I wonder how hard they had to try to be so perfect, and what kind of pressure was put on them to be that way. And I don't despise them, in a way I admire it, and maybe envy it, but mostly I feel sorry for them... because it must be really, really hard to be perfect.
