What is wrong with me? Karma perhaps?

There is a saying about 'karma' when we do good things in life, you’ll be rewarded a good result in return. But being realistic, it's never easy to keep a good balance in life because we are born do make mistakes so we can learn something and be better. An eraser wasn't created for no reason.

We're rapidly 'showered' with people's view, opinion and rules that "you can't do this”,  "this is wrong" and etcetera. It has become so untenable where others put too much high expectation from us that we are required or demanded to be so perfect, that once "you don't know what it's like to be in my shoes" to "I know what it’s like to be in your shoes so I'm stepping on your shoes so you'll be perfect”.

We're constantly surrounded by judgmental people who crave to penalize us due to our weaknesses. In fact, it became so rigid that people don't accept imperfection. I remember a saying, "No one remembers how many goals the goalkeeper saved, they will always remember the one he missed".  True, because people intend to focus on other’s mistakes instead of strenghtening the good side of a person to be better.

Positive energy is even harder to achieve when one person close to you start being honest in the most brutal way without realizing, they are 'stealing' our faith in bringing good values and kindness. Paul Arden once said "The Perosn Who Doesn't Make Mistakes Is Unlikely To Make Anyhing"

Since when we are demanded or required to be pretentiously perfect to them but not to satisfy ourselves with our imperfection? Will there be no eraser in future? I wonder.
