Why is proofreading necessary?

No matter how spectacular you think your document is, regardless of how many times you’ve gone over it, there will always be flaws you haven’t noticed.

Basically, you’re unable to see your own mistakes because you’re already aware of the message that you’re trying to convey. This is why you need a second set of eyes (hopefully it’s from someone like me) to look over your content and correct the errors and mistakes that you’ve gone blind to.
