About the color Pink

The color pink has beautiful meanings:

it takes all the passion and energy

of red and tempers it

with the purity of white,

leaving us with the color

of tenderness and affection.


Pink is definitively linked

to toning down aggression,

and its use in holding cells

for violent criminals has been effective.

Some sports teams

have even painted opposing teams

locker rooms pink

in an attempt to reduce aggression.

Pink is such an effective mood regulator

that too much of it

can by physically draining.

Dark pinks have effects similar to red –

heightened emotions,

while pale pinks are more soothing.


Pink symbolizes youth,

good health, and playfulness.

It’s the flush of first love

and stands for nurturing femininity.

It’s used as the symbolic color

of the movement to support

breast cancer research,

and we think of pink

as an innocent, cheerful color.


We associate pink

with the innocence of childhood

and unabashed play.

If giggles had a color,

it would be pink.


Pink can also be associated with passivity,

and an unwillingness

to take matters seriously.

We think of pink

as the color of inexperience

and associate it with weakness

and inhibitions.

Pink can also be associated

with timidity or a tendency

to be overly emotional.


The little finger is

often referred to

as the "pinky,"

and the origin goes back

to an obsolete meaning of "pink"

to refer to something small.


I find that the small, weak, pretty, emotional pink thing is quite lovely💗
