Both can be true

Sometimes we choose to view life in such a simplistic way that we don’t even consider that something is missing.

You perceive things as good or bad and wrong or right without leaving room for flexibility.

But often the truth lies somewhere in between.

For example, Robin Hood was a thief which is bad but he helped poor people which is good.
Limiting him to one or the other is an over simplistic view that doesn’t accurately portray the full picture.

Sometimes both things can be true.

Testing the theory

Sometimes things don’t quite pan out in real life.

I recently put something I believed to be true into practice and to my surprise, my theory turned out to be wrong.

It’s something I had tested before and carried in my mind as an idea that was true.

But all of a sudden I was faced with the harsh reality of being wrong or perhaps it was the reality of an anomaly.

However, the main takeaway was that theories should be tested. It’s no use going round with a thought, idea or even belief system that you consider to be true if it only exists in your mind.
