We are not perfect beings. Far from it! (Phil 3:12-15, Ecc 7:20, for a few examples) The work we do is not perfect – it can’t be – because there is only one perfect being – God (et. al.). We humans strive to reach perfection; in some of us, even, perfectionism is such a huge issue that’s it’s crippling. When things don’t go right, our endeavors don’t perform, or events continuously deviate from our intended path, the sense of abject failure may create a desire to just… freeze, so we don’t fail anymore.
You know how life just gets so crazy, and you– what about that time when you… oh, hey, don’t forget to take care of that… Life… is… distracting.
