words by HANNAH O'CALLAGHAN

In our youth we live with vulnerability, conviction and unapologetic honesty. Having enough blind vehemence to be completely consumed by the quest for meaningful human connection. This naïve confidence allows for exhilarating intimacy but if mishandled leaves imprints, not on the skin, but on the spirit, as betrayal teaches us just how far we can bend before we break.

As humans our need for purpose is insatiable. A perpetual journey that sees us strain to define our identity and raison d’etre. We exist in an era where the idea of perfection is seemingly in reach and struggle to mold ourselves to meet these ideals. As we grow, this quixotic notion of enlightenment sees us fight to nourish those human behaviors we deem ‘good’ and numb those that are not. Qualities deemed virtuous are considered vital and celebrated, whilst those considered imperfections are viewed as a sign of weakness and ignored. Despite our best efforts to conceal these ‘defects’ they remain within, left to breed shame and fear.

We are an intricate balance of all our behaviors and must not succumb to reticence through the fear of being exposed. This is what makes us human, perfection through imperfection. We must seek to uncover the uncensored beauty found by having the strength to be flawed.
