Either the traffic light is green or red; but it changes to yellow in between. Water is hot or cold; but sometimes it is warm. The matter is either black or white; but occasionally it is gray. There is always a middle point; a point of neutrality. No worries because these are inanimate objects. When this happens in your relationships, it’s a different story. The difficulty on reading the signals from people when their behaviors are unclear is challenging. You can be encyclopedic smart, but may have to get a second opinion on confusing actions. Some folks are masters of saying one thing and doing another. They can toss out mixed signals with the velocity of a Bruce Jenner decathlon throw. It muddles your thinking. Stop daydreaming, smell the roses, and interpret the actions for what they are. Eventually, your colors as you travel through life will be green, red, or yellow. You will be able to “go, stop, or slow down.” Or you will stop worrying about other folks signals and travel at your own speed!
