Bio: Im not perfect but I use perfection as my standard, i dont reach perfection but still strive for it....it keep me humble and forgiving of others. the ones who believe thery are perfect are far from it because the quit trying and arent paying attention to the truth.For me also honesty is so important. Its one of the most valuable things one can have. With the truth u can form sound decisions and have a compass or guide u through life.
