When I was a little girl, I used to read fairy tales. In fairy tales, you meet prince charming and he’s everything you ever wanted. In fairy tales, the bad guy is very easy to spot. The bad guy is always wearing a black cape so you always know who he is. Then you grow up and you realize that prince charming is not as easy to find as you thought. You realize the bad guy is not wearing black cape and he’s not easy to spot; he’s really funny, and he makes you laugh, and he has perfect hair. – Taylor Swift.
I somehow agree with this statement. When I grow up, I realize that there’s no real black and white in this world. This world is a grey area where everything is abstract, random, no clear and exact boundaries. We might answer two for one plus one back in elementary school, but now, in this age, one plus one is not as simple as two. There’s always variables, there’s always X-Factor which could show up in anytime, any places..
Well, honestly, those random and abstract variables do make life complicated, but it sure does make life worth living. All we can and should do is accept the truth that one plus one is no longer two, that perfect prince charming might be never exist.
I am pretty sure that the key answer to enjoy living this complicated world is being balance. Rather than put too much useless effort to change the grey become black or white – which is not a wise thing to do, I’d rather do the best I could do balancing every x-factor comes towards me and stay on my p’s and q’s.
