What does it really mean to be perfect?

I want to be perfect, and I don't think I'm the only one. I searched for both 'perfect' and 'perfection' on the interests here. I shouldn't be suprised that most of the communities that came up are eating disorder related, but I've been down that road already, and it's not a road I want to set foot on again. Being perfect is so much more than being thin, and for a lot of people it isn't on the list at all. I don't need to be a size 2 to be perfect, and with the hips I have I think I'd be pushing it to want even to be a size 6. What I do want are health, love, money. I want beauty inside and out. I want to be able to hold my own in a conversation about the effects of sodium-reduced bread on the health of ducks, if the need ever arises.

If no one else ever joins this community, I wouldn't mind much, but I keep thinking I can't be the only person out there that has goals of perfection that don't involve only wasting away to nothing. In case someone out there says "Yes! That's the perfect I want" membership is open. Come on in, introduce yourself, tell me (or us) what perfect means to you, tell us why you want it and what you're doing to get it. Let's help each other out.

On that note: Join only if you want to help others. Keep posts positive. Be nice. Use real words (ie. "Ana" is not a real word, unless referring to a girl named Ana. "Cuz" is not a real word ever... Etc.) Try to use the right words, everyone makes mistakes, but you should only need to be corrected once.

I will only ban people that are always negative or unhelpful, or refuse to correct their mistakes repeatedly. Those traits aren't found in perfect people, and won't help anyone here become perfect.
