I used to think pure logic was the best way to approach any problem. It frustrated me when people didn’t think or act logically (or at least what I considered logically). As I became more acquainted with ideas about acceptance and understanding through my educational and personal studies, I became more comfortable with irrationality. Individuals do not all think the same and are not always going to behave logically, that is the reality we live in. I now acknowledge that holding pure logic as an ideal is itself illogical and irrational. In order to make progress on any issue that involves other humans, appealing to their humanity first is essential, and in some cases that comes at the expense of logic.
