Just wanted to say on the subject of grey areas and feeling safe - whatever the area, you go in there with what you already know to be true and what seems safe to you - don't forget those things when entering grey areas, at the same time be open to learning something possibly good or something that will change your understanding in good ways and be prepared for learning something not so good. It's always a learning experience either way, one that you bring into the next grey area and so on, so that your confidence and ability to handle greys gets better.

There is a great quote which I think that can apply to grey areas we venture into. It is from Aristotle and goes like this:

"It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it."

My point being : you don't have to 'lose' yourself or necessarily be unsafe with grey areas.
