As much as things that are precisely defined or “clear-cut” are often easier for us to process, more often than not we encounter situations that are “not black and white” but rather ambiguous and ambivalent.

Such “grey areas”, which do not fit into neat categories, can present challenges, as they require us to accept that we do not always have all the answers.

Acknowledging and dealing with this often requires us to “switch gears” or adjust our way of thinking about things. This may sometimes involve accepting being “in two minds” or undecided about something.

But “grey areas” can also bring with them opportunities. This level of flexibility can come in useful when dealing with other challenges life throws at us. By learning to “roll with the punches” where appropriate, adversity can be better coped with and withstood.
