There are a few things I did as a child that I wish I hadn’t done…and there are a few things in my past that I think..WHAT WAS I THINKIN’ and perhaps wish I hadn’t done…although all of those things shaped me into the person I am today. At least I can look back on those things with a little remorse..I guess I’m one of the lucky ones with a conscience and in spite of the belief that I was raised by disfunctional parents, I was taught the difference between right and wrong. While I didn’t have a gray area when I was younger…it was either black or white and anything else was totally breaking the rules…I now see that there is a gray area in anything. I think it is probably better not to lounge around in the gray area but sometimes I may hang around there until I decide whether it is closer to black or closer to white and/or how fast I think I can run if someone else has a definite opinion about it…actually that’s not true…I don’t run anymore. I might say..ya know..you may think it is gray..but I’m comfortable here..so mind your own business and move on…there’s nothing to see here. Ya…that’s what I do. Sometimes when I’m really pent up with anxiety or boredom…I think about escaping to a little gray area just to see what it would be like..
But to get right down to it. What is going on with our society? The craziness on the left and on the right..yes…both sides have their extremes… just totally blows my mind. Or we could call it the religious right and the left athiests? I personally don’t think the religious right are God fearing people…and I totally don’t believe that those on the left are all athiests…Hell, I don’t know what to call it…but those of us in that huge gray area between the extremest want to know how to get free of them…and how to get free of them NOW.
Until next time.
I spend a lot of time in gray. Or at least I think I do. Hmm. Now I’m wondering.
Love this! “Better not to lounge in the gray area”Yep, I never saw gray when I was younger, at all. It’s only recently that I can see it, sometimes…
I exist only in the gray areas as I refuse to be labeled as one thing or the other.
