Does the "perfect" life really exist?

Beth Drummond, 17

My piece of writing teaches us to not judge a book by its cover, it is about how we judge people's happiness and quality of life by what they show us and we look to others' lives to compare to our own. However, this is usually an unfair comparison as we truly do not know what each other are facing unless we are living their life. Even if everything looks perfect, perfect does not exist, as everyone, no matter how much money, friends, or pretty they are, has their own struggles. It is meaningful as we all look to friends, people in the media or even strangers to compare our lives to, rather than trying to improve our own quality of lives and helping each other.
