"Truth and lies are black and white. So what is grey? Half-truths and lies."
I am not sure who thought of the colour grey, a bit of black and a bit of white. I have nothing against the colour, I mean it is related to my favourite, black, but I don't know who thought applying the same principle to real life was a great idea.Things should be simple, black or white, yes or no but now there is a grey area for almost everything, talk about evolving. Well, I know everything in life is not exactly straight forward, but you will see what I mean in a bit.
Religion. I thought it was either you were a Christian or you were not. Now we have practising Christians and those not practising. It is bad enough we already have a million denominations. Not just Christians, it is the same for other religions. Why all the classes? Are we just creating these to suit our lives, because we are too lazy to do the actual thing, the right thing or we lack understanding? Why carry the name if you do not want to commit?
Relationships, it is either you are in one or you are not. These days, its hard to tell the difference.
One night stands,
We'll see where it leads,
Hanging out?! I am still trying to get what that means and people's definitions tend to vary with the guy or girl they are referring to. People who use this term/s are obviously not ready to commit and face the challenges that come with a relationship. Why not just stay on your own? What happened to just having friends? But life is unpredictable, yes, life can be unpredictable so allow it to be unpredictable, don't try and create an unpredictable situation. So you fell in love with your secretary, divorce your wife before starting another family. Falling in love with your secretary is unpredictable, buying her a house, a car and getting her pregnant three times, isn’t.
We just make life stressful for ourselves, then we complain that life is too complicated. Well, you made some choices, so live with it. We don't want to choose sides, we want a bit of both but we should know by now we cannot have everything so we need to differentiate what we need from what we want. Is two minutes pleasure more important that a life of stability and purpose? It is thrilling to live off emergency but can you afford the cost of life's A&E?
