“It’s all about perfection, isn't it? And it is our imperfections that make us perfect" - Keira Knightley
Keira Knightley is gifted with the power of Refinement. People with this gift are perfectionists and draw happiness from their surroundings. In the movie, Bend it Like Beckham, Knightly put herself through rigorous football training. By the end of which, coach Simon Clifford praised Knightley for doing “things some Premier League players can’t do.”
However, she reportedly had a mental breakdown at 22 because of her perfectionism. She was only able to get her life back on track through the love and support of her family and a very small but close group of friends.
All of us have a personal power that comes with its own set of challenges as you see it in Keira’s example of her struggle with perfectionism. Because of this power, she went through a dark turn in life but came out transformed, using the same gifts.
In Keira’s hands, it clearly shows her power of refining projects to a point of perfection. But as mentioned above, she needs a supportive environment for her to recharge at all times when she is tackling her film projects.
