“It is only when we accept our humanness that our divinity is able to shine through us.” – Aimee Davies
Suffering from a chronic sense of “not enough” from a young age, it took the experience of nearly dying for Aimee Davies to realise that her striving after perfection was destroying her. This memoir shares her journey from self-hate to self-worth and the wild lengths she went to to re-discover herself including mystical brews in South America, living in the jungle, joining a spiritual cult and living like a monk. From her addiction to looking physically perfect to then attempting to be spiritually perfect, Aimee buys into the belief that being perfect will bring her the love and acceptance she needs to find peace. Finally, she has a profound and lasting realisation that stops her frantic search in its tracks and allows her to fall head over heels in love with her imperfect and messy humanness. A timeless and deeply affirming tale of joy lost and re-found, told with breath-taking honesty, Imperfect gets to the very heart of what it means to be human and what it takes to embrace ourselves as we are.
