  1. If everything in this life is not perfect, and this is a fact , then you need to get closer to what is beyond. As the Holy Scripture says:

    Mt. 6: 19. Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on the earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal,

    1. but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys, and where thieves do not break in and steal

    Aspiration to the beyond – to the Kingdom of Heaven, to God-is what gives a person the opportunity to rise above the grayness. That's the answer. Strive for God, and the dullness of the world will cease to be hopeless for you. And even the shackles of imperfection will loosen over time. It is a fact that the Holy Churches are bright personalities that rise like lighthouses above the gray.

  2. The question is rhetorical. It touches on the theme of the meaning of life, which is subjective in itself. You can't find out a reliable answer, and you can only choose the meaning of life from the options that are offered. And there are many options:
    1) You can choose a religion that you like best – then all questions will disappear automatically;
    2) You can choose philistine views (the meaning of life is in life itself, to live for a certain goal, etc.then you will also believe that life has an important meaning;
    3) If the topic of religion does not interest you, and the popular versions do not suit you, you can turn to classical philosophy – Chinese, Indian or ancient Greek. You may not like all sorts of wisdom, but still you have some kind of worldview (not completely formed, simply put: you are in search), so you may still like someone's philosophy-Eastern spirituality or Greek practicality , just need to see which of them is most similar to your point of view.
    4) If the above-mentioned philosophy also does not appeal to you, you can read the opinions of Leo Tolstoy (called Confession) – there are also very interesting arguments, in a depressive-logical style.
    5) You can also turn to psychology. Yes, there's a lot of unscientific gibberish out there right now, but there's also some good stuff. Karen Horney, E. Frome, and Abraham Maslow explain the essence of man, his needs, and the mechanisms of the psyche somewhat. They won't answer the question about the meaning of life, but they can help you figure out your life priorities.

    I personally like the views of ancient Greek philosophers (specifically Epicurians and Stoics), as they tried to rely more on logic, rather than on some abstract mythical concepts

  3. My personal opinion ! In your question “lies” and quite an adequate answer, If something is missing or missing, or missing, or “imperfect and imperfect”, etc. but it is necessary. Of course, it is necessary, it is necessary to strive to acquire, replenish, recreate, “idealize and improve” , etc. In turn, it is not “really” possible to achieve the final result, since “life” is constantly changing. And in essence, it will always be, to one degree or another, “imperfect and imperfect”, but it is necessary to strive for this – so that it will never be boring.

  4. This question would have a more logical and epistemological meaning if it were put like this: “If everything in life is perfect and perfect, then what should we strive for?” Indeed, this is the question!

  5. Why do you think that everything is not perfect? Nature is all perfect. Only what a person has created is not perfect. But it can always be improved. This is what you need to strive for – to make yourself and the world around you better)) Because we are all connected by one field, the actions of one person are reflected in the whole world. Butterfly effect))

  6. Well, for whom how, for me, for example, life is so arranged beautifully and surprisingly, and all people are so good-looking (soul at least) that it surpasses all my youthful fantasies about her. But I will certainly not call it” perfect “or” perfect “(like Da Vinci's “Gioconda” or Plato's “eidos”). But it is so lively and diverse that it never bores me like, for example, “perfectly abstract and perfect” mathematics.

    What prevents or prevents you from “striving for life” as it is (and not “ideals” and “perfection”, or some other “bar of an absolute record”)?

    I myself have long been tormented by the question, why and why do people themselves (and some even God “in whom they” believe) “put” an absolute ceiling of development in the form of”ideal perfection”? What or who prevents us from developing and becoming “more perfect” and “more perfect” (than any of our fictional “record bars”, even purely abstract ones like “concepts”)?

    And I do not ask these questions here because I do not expect any “reasonable” answer, except for platitudes like, “You do not understand anything in these concepts,” that's why perfect perfection is so that nothing could be more perfect and perfect than it!”

    Moreover, I have nothing to “cover” such evidences with (after all, these “concepts” are really just that-the absolute limit!). And the fact that I fell in love and “chose real life” as an “object of aspiration” does not prove my “rightness” to others who fell in love and chose these “beautiful concepts” or other dreams of beauty instead. So if real life (as an object of aspiration) If you are not satisfied, then you can strive for ideals (even religious, even scientific, even any other of your choice). You can strive, for example, for “freedom and democracy” which is so actively advertised by the “free press” or “become the richest” (my neighbor, for example, is very eager to do this all his life without working anywhere and living on handouts from relatives and friends and “casual earnings”, because it's a shame for the “richest” to work like everyone else?).

  7. Then we must strive for the ideal. Everything
    and everything is imperfect and this is a fact, but we are not given anything else and we only have to strive for this unattainable ideal. Just if you do not focus on this, then what?

  8. The problem of solving the question is in the question itself! Initially, the question stands as an answer – everything is not perfect! In reality, it looks like this: human nature after the fall became prone to mistakes and imperfections, in fact, like all the nature surrounding a person. There is no ideal in this world and will not be until the second coming until everything becomes deified. It is better to accept this idea, but the solution here is to make this imperfection perfect, a kind of motivation for the best, we remember that God told Adam to build a garden in Eden, although everything was created beautifully and well. Here our idea of imperfection and perfection plays a significant role, they are limited.
