Honestly, my opinion of black is that it is elegant and beautiful.
However, some of the connotations of black are negative, it’s all in the matter of perspective.
A situation can be dark and gloomy, but the way you view it says a lot about what you think of the color black. For example, eyeliner is most often worn black. That’s beautiful, right?
Negative minds think black is like death. Though I battle depression daily, black isn’t an ugly color or a statement of how I am doing. If I wanted to make a statement about how I am doing I wouldn’t go out in public and would not wear decent clothes in public. Being a waitress is complicated at times because I do constantly have to fight to keep going. My work attire is all black – professional. Black collared shirt, black pants, black belt, and black shoes – if you really think about it and view it in a different light, black isn’t such a bad color.
Perspective says a lot about you. Forget about the glass being half full or half empty. It can always be filled with more!
Situations, whether personal or not, always have two sides. One with the truth and one that doesn’t. View it in a different light, and things will surely get better! With Christ all things are possible! (Philippians 4:13).
There’s more to life than the colors. Keep your mind full of light and the darkness fades.
So, is black such a bad color?
