Black And White Views


Some of us see the entire world in black and white. 

Some of us see a world of color.

I’m not talking about literally seeing only black and white.  As I understand it even people who are “color blind” actually see some color.

I’m talking about our perception of life.

For some people it’s all or nothing.  My way or the highway. Right or wrong.  Good or bad.  There’s no in-between.

For others life is about all the shades of gray in between the black and white and even more colors outside of that limited view.

Where is your perspective in life?

Do you only see life issues as right or wrong?

Is everything good or bad with no combination of the two?

Can you answer every question with a yes or no?

Or do you see the same decision as right in one instance but wrong in another?

Is there a combination of good and bad in everything?

Can you struggle sometimes to only answer with a yes or no?

My view of life is mostly in bold, vivid colors.  However, sometimes issues seem a little “gray” and occasionally even black and white.  No question, it’s either yes or no at times.

Where is your perception of life on this scale? 

Is everything black and white for you? Right or wrong?  Good or bad?

Is it always your way or the highway or do you sometimes compromise?

I would guess that most of us see life as a world of color but sometimes we can only view the black and white in a situation, that none of us are all one way or the other.

What do you think about this?
