Lately I've been asking myself why do I have so many red clothes in my closet when I don't like red. I really dislike lime green and red is right up there with that color, so why does my eyes go to the red and why do I buy red? I like navy blue and white, think it looks neat. I like all shades of lavender and purple. For years my bedroom was lavender and white. A friend used to call my bedroom with those colors "The sex room". I hated for her to say that because to me it was pretty and calm. After many years I decided it was time to change my colors and what did I go to? Red bedspread with my white iron bed. White curtains with red trim, red flower pictures with red frames. I used to know someone who when down would say "it just makes me want to go home and put on something brown". Now I like brown and beige and black. I don't find them depressing. Although my truck is beige and I want my next one (if there is a next one) to be metallic red. I don't like red so why do I keep choosing it? Am I wanting attention? I've always been quiet, quieter then I am now. When I tend to tell John something a few days later he will tell me the same thing and say his daughter or his sister told him that. My husband used to do the same thing. Recently I told a man about a man we know and something he did to help a community. The next time I saw the man he told me what I told him about the man and where the community is as if I didn't know it and I was hearing it for the first time. I wanted to say "I'm the one who told you that", but I didn't. Guess I should have just gone home and put on something "red". I like my blouses that are red, white, and blue and maybe some stars for buttons but I have two red purses, two pair of red shoes, several pair of red earring and necklaces and I don't like red. I have a lot of red tee shirts with different pictures or "sayings" on them and I don't like red. Does anyone have an insight into this, I'm really curious. Is there any reason why you like or dislike a certain color?
