Video Diary #11: Thinking for yourself and the presidential election

Posted by Emily Swarter on

Now, more than ever, we are taught to take on such a binary way of thinking. It is the source of the divide in the United States, and often leaves our spirits lost. I want to encourage people to not take on the thoughts of either the black or the white and to search for the grey area inbetween. Choose what is right, what is certain, think modestly, and most importantly, independently. 

I feel as though adopting this way of thinking will enable to go through life with a clear head, not be caught up in the triviality of binary thinking, and promote peace in our communities. 

From my observations, the most successful individuals do not subscribe to binary thinking.
