What Does Wearing Black Mean?
“Black is modest and arrogant at the same time. Black is lazy and easy – but mysterious. But above all black says this: “I don’t bother you – don’t bother me.” ― Yohji Yamamoto
During the most turbulent times in my life, I mirrored those exact words in my mind, heart, and soul. Have you ever felt that way?
Life was good, or so I thought. I had a great job, a great marriage, a nice home, wonderful kids and a dog.
What else could anyone want?
I never thought it would happen to me. I found myself alone, divorced, and a single parent. My life was over in my mind and my self-worth and self-value were gone.
My female attractiveness had faded over the years leaving me a second rate to women in their twenties.
Who would want me?
How many divorced women share these feelings?
What about you?
If not a divorce, perhaps something has shattered your life, your dreams, and your world to the point of misery, depression, and isolation.
Hiding my loneliness and unhappiness in wearing black every day was the only way I could cope.
How do you cope?
I felt safe wearing black; it made look thinner and almost invisible. Isolation, depression soon followed as my world was shrinking to nonexistence.
Weight loss, weight gain, hair loss, and mental brain fog dominated my life during this time.
