It's so much easier to see ourselves in black and white. Maybe I'm dull, but my favorite color is gray. We human beings see patterns in everything. It's the only way to convert an ever expanding universe into a digestible morsel. We build up these black and white worlds in our minds and apply them to everything we see and do. At times we overlay those distorted patterns over our own lives and conclude that we are bad rather than recognizing a number of poor decisions for what they are. If we aren't careful the mistakes we make in life will overwhelm us and we'll start to foolishly think that we are some kind of soulless monsters. We all have regrets. We've all done things we'd take back if we could. But, we can't think we're all rotten just because we've done some questionable things. If we really were bad we would be indifferent. Bad people don't feel guilt. Bad people don't feel remorse. Bad people don't seek redemption.
