2. Between black and white there are shades of grey
Happy is the man brave enough to face the facts and admit that, Yes, he’s not the best in the world … (insert desired word) that there is on this planet people much more talented or intelligent, but that does not mean that it is time to open the veins. Shades of gray — this is normal. By the way, you, like all others, has strengths and weaknesses. That’s okay too.
3. The facts are primarily
