In this generation where lots of style of clothes are coming out, specifically lots of prints and colors , there are still a number of people who prefer to use black as the color of their clothes. Of course the first thing that comes out of our mind is they have boring clothes or they just don’t have any taste in colors, or maybe they are just the emotional type of people because we somehow don’t understand where they are coming from but if we come to think of it, I believe that there will always be a reason for everything so  maybe there’s a reason behind why they chose black for the color of  their clothes.

On color psychology, black reflects authority and power but it could also represent evil notion for some people. By wearing black , you’d be able to attract people who likes authoritative men and eventually , they will start to admire you. Wearing black makes you look independent and strong. But what is really the reason behind preferring to wear black? Most of the time , people who wear black are people who are secretive. As much as possible , they never want to express or share what they really feel inside.  Maybe because they got hurt in their past and because of that pain , they never wanted anyone to go near them or get too close to them with the reason that they don’t want to feel the pain they once felt again. Trauma is a deeply distressing or disturbing experience. From the word deeply, it tells us that when you have a trauma with something, things won’t be that easy. Your perspective may change, the way you judge things may change and your capability to trust people will also change. To the people who are still haunted by their past, you should know that you have your worth and not all people are the same. Not all of them will hurt you. You just have to trust again.

The colors we choose really has indications. If not always , at least most of the time. Maybe we can get to know someone better with his color perspective. Black then has a deep meaning which can only be understood by those who are willing to understand. By those who are willing to extend their arms to make the insecure people secured. But maybe it’s still up to the person if he will allow people to help him and if he will open his doors to them. It’s about having the courage to trust new people and accepting that what happened to your past is already done.
