For some people, life only has two sides, it’s either black or white.
A mixture of two is not possible for them. They never view the life with gray areas in between. They see people, situations, places, and many other things to only have positive and negative characteristics.
I too had a habit to see everything in black & white untill one day I realised my mistake. Defining everything in black or white is very easy but there is so much hiding amongst the grey areas. No one wants to talk about the grey shade that he or she is hiding.
It is very easy to blame others for their negativities but do we look inside us.
We can preach others to not to talk shit but when same situation come to us , we react differently.
Grey is the shade which everyone has inside but it takes lot of courage to accept that.
I have seen people defending themselves so well but they can not accept the fact that the other persons may have flaws too.
Why do we judge people who wear western clothes? Why do we talk ill about modern women who drink or smoke?
Everyone does this behind closed doors but doing this in front of public may harm their characters. People used to wear white clothes to show their serenity and those who love black colour are considered to be negative.
I find it hilarious sometimes. I have read in Buddhism that we all are born with same potential. Both evil and good are inside us. It depends on the state of mind that we react accordingly.
We should never blame others for our own negativities.
"The world isn’t black and white. No one does pure good or pure bad. It’s all gray. Therefore, no one is better than anyone else. Knowing only grey, you conclude that all greys are the same shade. You mock the simplicity of the two-colour view, yet you replace it with a one-colour view. – Marc Stiegler"
I think this quote clarifies my point of view. Grey is the colour of this modern era and we must stop looking at others as black & white.
Let them be original. Originality is difficult to absorb but after realising the fact of life, we may lead easy life.
There’s no right or wrong when one chooses to be happy. It’s just a battle between one’s own happiness and the judgment of others.
I have forgotten the name of a philosopher who said the above quote.
I may wear my choice of clothes or live life in my way and it may appears wrong to others. It does not mean that I am wrong and they are right or Vica Versa. It's just a situation or difference of opinion. So just start to take it light to live peacefully in this wide world where different people of different moods live with you.
Black & White is a myth, right or wrong is an illusion.
I rest my case with this quote of Shinde Sweety
"No person is completely wicked, just as no person is perfect. We are all grey."
