Mint Green & Cherry Magenta: When Hard Leads To Good

Hello my dear readers,

mint and cherry, two things that could not be more different from the colors & tastes. Nevertheless both of them have found themselves for good as a summer trend. Just as way it is difficult to believe in the moments itself when hard times are supposed to lead us to good ones.

“Opposites attract, perfectly mismatched”, actress and singer Jodie Sweetin also known as Stephanie J. Tanner sings in her song “The Boy Next Door” for the “Full House” spin-off series “Fuller House” [next generation]. But regardless of her song this common knowledge that opposites attract is one of the most elemental things we get to learn and keep in mind for life may it be with people who differ from us or sarcasm that has integrated in our daily language – so why is it still a spectacle when hard leads us good? May it be hard situations, hard times or hard moments of truth.

The pain or tense when knowing the moment of truth is going to take place feels like an exam, to say it in the words of someone very close to me, or like giving birth, to express it the way I would. But if we do not face our shadow or face the situation we are just going to suffer more in the long term. No matter if it is about clearing a dispute with someone important to us or letting go of what is no good for you. It is doubtlessly more comfortable to stay isolated in the personal zone for oneself but in the end we are going to torment ourselves with what is not good for us.

Bitter & Sweet: Be Hard to do yourself Good

So different, yet so in harmony(?) While mint green, having its bright, soft but cold color from the fresh plant, is sour and bitter, the round summer-fruit has a sometimes strong, sometimes damped but warm color as well as a sweet, tangy taste.

But thus its bitterness we always get to almost daily come back to the plant as it is not only healthy for our body but as well for our soul with its freshness.

It is not said that the appreciative fruit would not be healthy but in the end in comparison with the mint it remains seasonal and is not meant to be a medicine in the main sense.

What I want to say with this metaphor? Well, it certainly is easier to enjoy and amuse yourself but it will definitely not always be the better way for you let alone for your sake. Early in our childhood we get confronted with the bitter pill and we are going to confront our children with this bitter pill too – even our parents, certainly that ahead – but only because these barriers will turns us to better humans for our fellows.
