Seeing The World Through Rose Coloured Glasses Is A Curse

We’ve all hear those sayings that never make sense to you at first but them you start to think about it more, like people who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw rocks, a rolling stone gathers no moss, blood is thicker than water, a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step, a chain is only as strong as its weakest link, a good beginning makes a good ending, a gold key can open any door, and so on. These proverbs are known all around the world some of them are quite clever, but what if a proverb matched you, and in a way it described a part of you, would it be a good thing or a bad thing. I am dyslexic, and I find it very difficult read and I even have a lot of trouble writing this blog but I love to do it still. Some people who are dyslexic wear glasses with coloured lenses to help them, it doesn’t work for everyone but it works for me. The proverb seeing the world through rose coloured glasses is actually true for me because my glasses are pink, but it isn’t a good thing. The saying means that you only see the pleasant, joyful, happy parts of life or the world, but since I have to wear these rose coloured glasses I understand that if you take the saying literally and wear pink glasses you start to see the world in the opposite to which the proverb implies. When you are forced to look through such a cheery colour every day you start to notice that everything is not cheery and that there is a lot of bad things in the world. I wish I had a choice of what colour I get but it all depends on my brain and my eye, not my choice. If looking through rose coloured glasses is a curse then maybe a darker colour would do the opposite.
