Growing up, I hated pink so much because it was such a stereotypical colour. The regular belief was that boys loved blue and girls, pink.
I remember going to the market with my dad and brother to buy wedding presents for one of my cousins.
My dad settled for cookware and after buying and wrapping, the owner of the shop decided to gift my brother and I, a cute little bowl each.
Guess what he did!
He gave me a pink one and my brother, a blue one. He just went on to assume I’d like the pink one because I’m a girl. I couldn’t complain but I was mad.
The bowls were so beautiful but I hated mine because it was pink.
I didn’t exactly have a favourite colour at that time, but because blue things were always given to my brother, I decided it wasn’t elite enough for me.
I chose to make lemon my favorite colour.
I wasn’t comfortable with it, but I didn’t want pink or any of it’s extended family members like lilac, peach or purple. Other colours weren’t appealing enough either, I managed to settle for lemon.
One time, I made my mom get me a lemon dress. If lemon is my favourite, I might as well wear it with pride.
I felt like a sign post whenever I wore that dress so, I figured I didn’t like bright colours.
That’s when black and grey became my favourite colours and I’ve not regretted that decision.
Well, here’s the big announcement!
If you know me well enough, you’d know that hunting wallpapers is one of my favorite pastimes.
I was scrolling through Pinterest in search of wallpapers the other day, when I came across this pink one.
I’ve finally experienced love at first sight guys!!!
Who knew that I could ever like pink?
I used to feel so sorry for one of my classmates who loved pink so much. I don’t know if she still does but her love for pink was so immense and I used to pray for her to see the light.
Look at me now!! The shade of pink was so beautiful, it blue my mind away so, I searched for more and found another shade that I like.
I didn’t think I would ever like pink, but here I am.
