Good or Bad

It is human to perceive things as good or bad, right or wrong. We see things how we first perceived the situation. Even though something may seem to be good or bad, it is all in our view of things that really determines if it is good or bad, as well as, how bad or good it is.

If you allow yourself to see the bigger picture – that everything can be considered good or bad based on what you are looking at – then suddenly almost everything has a neutral sort of sense about it. It can’t be considered good or bad at all. In fact, it can be both good and bad based on how it affects other situations. There is a Chinese story in which a farmer loses his horse. A week later it comes back with three other wild horses. So, what might be considered a horrible situation turned into a fantastic situation. It shows that no situation can be considered fully good or bad.

About Thain

I am a high school senior with a strong interest in psychology and philosophy; my interest in psychology stems from my analytical thinking, I analyze just about everything. It is similar for philosophy except that everything is more in theory than in fact. These all compound to create the reason why I joined HNWF; self help type stuff has a lot of psychological principles in it and surrounding it. I joined because I was surrounded by it and the idea of being part of it interested me.
