You probably read that wrong,you can go back and read it again it is gray not gay.I have been debating whether to use 'grey' or 'gray' and I finally settled on the latter just because I love American movies and I respect Britain enough to even bring this to your attention.
Back to the matter,I am not talking about the colour (which is beautiful btw) but rather the state of things. The state of your mind, your body, your surroundings, I mean I could go on and on.The grayness of a situation is what keeps me going, its more like sitting on the fence ,either way you will still be safe. The fact that come what may it will not affect you in any way atleast not heavily is the adrenaline in it. Let's take a literal example, covid 19, most of us are really not being clear on what it is we want. Some are even wishing it to stay a little bit longer because they are getting used to not going to work, netflix all day and getting to stay with your spouse/partner, family for a bit longer. Others really want things to go back to normal ,they cannot stand the boredom , the irritation, the same boring news updates and the financial toll it is having on all of us. But the gray chaps, they are looking for ways to make profits, they are investing in their mental, emotional and physical beings amidst all this, whether it ends or continues this diabolical virus will not affect them. They are developing 'thick skin'. The lukewarm nature of something can really save you a whole lot of things. I mean in a relationship if you don't put all your eggs (emotions) in one basket (this relationship) chances are you could still eat dinner despite breaking all your eggs. In an election you could fail to vote (please do vote,its legally required) and if either wins or looses you will be fine, if they fail to be good leaders atleast it wouldn't be on you. I think you get the point.
Grayness shouldn't be frowned upon ,as it is, most people do. The downside of it though is that you will forever be stagnant, you will not move be it forward or backward since it comes with a consequence. You will never know what happens on the other side. You will never experience the closeness to death or bliss. Really its more like a constant feeling that holds you back. Although they say cowards live longer they fail to remind you that the brave die happy and accomplished.
We all agree that media outlets, politicians, succesful people will urge you to despise grayness. They will tell you and always remind you to choose either black or white to proove your loyalty or how badly you want things. To make your decision and stick to it. What they scarcely articulate is the effort, the pain that comes with it, the low chances of survival incase things go south or rather the extraordinary chances of survival if things work out. I am a libra, quite famous for my indecisive nature (and yes I just used my horoscope to justify myself) so gray is what I am day in day out. Albeit everyday I try not to, I try to make a decision, I try not to get carried by the wind and make a stand I try to be less of me. What do you do? Are you gray?.
Do you want to be gray? which is really the easy way to go.The cowardly path to choose and the silver lining in it,is that you live for longer. And since we are here for a good time not a long time then I suggest you take a stand.Choose white or black or blue or even fuschia and thank me later.
