Colour Management HELP

In need of help

I recently started viewing my images on different monitors and was shocked at the difference in colour’s. I knew there would be some difference but it got me thinking. If I’m editing my images so they look good to me on my monitor how do I know how they are going to appear on everyone else’s monitor’s and if someone just has their monitor on a default setting out of the box the result could be completely disastrous especially with contrast and brightness as well.

So I ask this question what advice would you give to prepare your images for redbubble knowing that they could appear different to everyone?

And as an extra to this how do I know that my monitor is giving a true represetation of colour? Or is there no true in the sense of the word and its just what looks nice?

Colour management really confuses me and I want to learn how I know that I’m getting the right colours.
