I Acknowledge the "Gray" In Life

Not everything is "black and white" 235 People

    Why Cant Life Be Simpler

    we often get into an argument of right and wrong, black and white, success and failures, etc etc. I wonder why we humans are so judgmental. I like the animals for reason, that say when I am hungry I eat, when i am sleepy I sleep and when I am horny I mate....even they are...

    I pretty much live in

    that moral "gray area" that most people choose not to acknowledge. Its like I have this compulsion to just pick everything apart, and it enables me to see most sides of a situation. Even when I don't necessarily agree I tend to have this ability to empathize with opposite views...
