Today is a day like most, where as I don’t need to use today. My quest for knowledge has led me to believe my vocabulary skills need to be increased to another level. My search of the internet has been a huge letdown so far , but there has to be something to help , as I just need to find it . I have also started a typing course that’s self paced , that seems to be ok so far .
Black and white thinking usually involves autistic behavior , but I feel we all have this way of thinking to a certain extent . We all have certain ways of thinking that isn’t going to be changed by most people, yet in the face of a comprehensive change I have been awakened to certain areas of my own thinking. Do we default to this way of thinking , as an easier approach to daily events ? I think yes we do, as to set a certain time for a child to return or go to bed . We say “were teaching them responsibility” hmmm ok it does somewhat teach certain things I suppose. In all reality what I believe we are trying to do is simplify the rules in our own minds. That’s just one example of this way of thinking . There are several others that almost all of us are guilty of , but want to judge others of this way of thinking .
We teach our children everyday to think this way. WE give them schedules with exact times , as times are always the same. We tell them rules apply to everyone , there are no exceptions . Our schools teach children there’s one way to do things , as this is usually the way our state sees fit. I guess black and white means things seem clear and fair.
So if we want people to think differently , why is it we teach the opposite . I have seen and heard people judging others of this way of thinking . I have been condemned for this myself . I feel in my days of schooling this way of thinking was in place for mainly control . Our teachers need a certain amount as we all know but we need to find different ways , as control defaults to black and white thinking. I have along way to go to overcome this affliction, as I know I have lost friendships due to this . I have felt in the past everyone should follow the same rules and no exceptions should be made , this is as black and white as you can get …wow the more I think about this the more I’m guilty . So the next time you want to judge someone of this … stop and think first maybe your just as guilty as they are ..
Thanks for reading my thoughts …Please comment at will …all are appreciated I’m Tim …I feel optimistic…
