The golden middle way is never grey
A lot of things in life are treated like a black or white issue. You either hate it or love it. You are a Democrat or a Republican. Mac or PC. For or against. Christian or atheist. Guilty or not guilty. A saint or a devil. In our out. Left or Right. Smart or dumb.
And so on.
We do this as it is easy and convenient. Often we are incentivised to pick a side. And it’s how our brains are wired to handle the world around us by default. But it’s often not the best way.
The truth often is in the middle.
I believe we need to think much more about the middle ground.
Maybe there are some truth to both sides. Maybe we can actually learn from the other side. This takes a lot more effort, but also empathy.
If you start looking at life like that. And pause and think about the other side and why they might have a point, there is a lot of gold to be found.
So. The next time an argument comes up or you “have to” pick a side.
Think about both sides and you will discover there is more sides than two.
