The Difference Between Flawed and Wrong

This morning I am not in a good mood. This inspires me to write and I am trying for this not be just a rant but an informed decision on my part not to listen to bullshit. First, someone I considered a friend lied to me and tried to make up some scenario that was something that I knew was complete bullshit because they over reacted to something that happened earlier. So, then they tried to throw the MY RELIGION into it, as if Buddhists are supposed to be door mats for the rest of the world to walk on. Guess what - NOT.
Then, as I realized that I had misjudged someone on their intentions and relationship to me, I backed away from a relationship with someone that I thought was a friend for over a year. Weird because they seemed so normal previously. I refuse to allow myself to be dragged down mentally and emotionally by people who seem unstable.
THEN, someone who actually IS a dear friend of mine, had a meme posted that said we can't judge Hillary Clinton because like all of us she is 'flawed', as if we are talking about a work of art.
Let me explain the difference. A flaw is something that happens FROM OUTSIDE OF AN OBJECT to make them a certain way and is irreversible, as in a flaw on a gemstone. It is incapable of being repaired. 
Flawed? We are talking about a human being, not a gem stone. Please let me explain the difference in definition.
flaw: noun - a defect impairing legal soundness or validity.
You are picturing flawed as less than perfect but being WRONG means: not correct in action, judgment, opinion, method, etc., as a person; in error: 
When, as a person, you CHOOSE wrong policies over the public good and choose mentors who are war mongers and hedge fund managers who helped wreck us in the past. you aren't imperfect, you are WRONG and if you continue to choose to be wrong, you are willfully ignorant about the right things to do.
When a gemstone is flawed it can't be corrected but when a PERSON continues to CHOOSE TO be WRONG  "...not correct in action, judgment, opinion, method, etc., as a person; in error:", then they have the ability and the right to CHOOSE DIFFERENTLY and correct and change that "...action, judgement, opinion, method, etc.", and when someone doesn't choose to correct bad policy decisions made by her husband and instead CHOOSES to defend them, then they aren't flawed, THEY ARE WRONG. 
An opinion or decision, being objects, can be flawed but when a person chooses one of those things as a way to dictate the future and the future of their decisions, then, they are WRONG.
