Expression: Black and White

Everyone has their own point of view. Some people see things a certain way. For example, do you like the rain? Some people hate the rain and stay inside all day while others think rain is a nice surprise. They go outside, dance, and play in the rain. People who think in “black and white” don’t like surprises. They expect things to happen in the same way everyday.

People who think in black and white see things only in one way. They like routine, order, and rules. When something unexpected happens, they get angry. People who think in black and white see things as either good or bad, strong or weak, smart or stupid, beautiful or ugly. But you cannot see the world in only “black and white.” It is important to open your mind and understand that, sometimes, things happen that aren’t just “black and white.”
