White is an inherently positive color and it is often associated with purity, virginity, innocence, light, goodness, heaven, safety, brilliance, illumination, understanding, cleanliness, faith, beginnings, sterility, spirituality, possibility, humility, sincerity, protection, softness, and perfection but guess what? I find it so hard to wear white! What annoys me is how I struggle with this beautiful color yet whenever I wear it, I get all the compliment in the world. People say things like “You look so good in white”, “Oh! you should wear white more”! Whaaaat! You had to say that only when I wear this color?
On a serious note Though, We all know not everyone is comfortable wearing white. I wouldn’t neccessarily call it Leukophobia (Phobia for white), I just can’t stand a stain on white! I feel like my attention will literally be on that stain the whole day! which often times affect mu focus. So I get extra cautious whenever I wear them and i don’t like the feeling tht comes with having to be extra careful. I initially thought I was the only one, Until I had the conversation with few people and discovered we were on the same page.
And yea! Shout out to every single lady out there who rocks white effortlessly! I want some of your courage Biko!
