I am yellow.
Yellow is the color of my unrealistic optimism. I wear these to see everything sunny, warm and bright. You are over exposed and unnatural. You are shiny and unreal but at the same time, interesting and contagious. I feel high.
I am blue.
Blue is the color of my moodiness. I put these on and see you through my drama. I see and hear distrust and disapproval. I am aware of your mood, your detachment and abstract vagueness. I feel sad.
I am red.
Red is the color of my anger. I put these on and see you through my rage. You look aggressive, harsh and removed. Your edges are sharp and restrictive. I feel out of control.
I am gray.
Gray is the color of my complacency. I put these on and see you as apathetic and uncaring. You look uninteresting and dull. I feel caught in a rut – a never-ending cycle of repetition and monotony. I feel hopeless.
I am black.
Black is the color of my sadness. I put these on and see you as distant and unfeeling. You are shadows and uncertainty. You look scary and hostile. I am afraid of the world. I am undone.
I am pink.
Pink is the color of how I want my world to be. I put these on and see you as healthy and whole. I am also healthy and whole. You are beautiful, created in a unique design. I feel warm and fulfilled. I hear joy and laughter in your voice, feel connected and safe with you. I feel loved.
Help me to remove the colored glasses that hinder me from seeing things as they should be – and as they really are. And wisdom to know the truth. Amen
Which glasses do you wear most of the time?
