Sad face

Generally, I try to be as honest as possible on here because it helps to get your feelings out and I know people reading this are really supportive. It’s difficult though when you’re having issues offline to know whether to speak about them or risk depressing everyone with your woes or even making them think you’re just moaning for no good reason.

I know some bloggers share everything but others don’t or some just disappear for a while to sort things out. I’m not sure what the best thing to do is but it’s hard to come up with fun and interesting posts when you feel down. Some of my feelings come down to feeling in limbo – wondering what will happen with my writing if anything and some of it’s down to feeling like everyone around me is doing things I’m not or things that are so far away on the horizon for me and some of it’s just a feeling. Sometimes you don’t even know why you feel the way you do and that makes it harder to talk yourself out of it.

So I’m sorry if I’ve depressed anyone but I felt I had to say something about how I feel today. And hopefully tomorrow will be brighter and better for me and anyone else reading this who isn’t feeling that happy today.

  1. I think I understand how you feel. Lately I’ve begun to realize that it’s okay to feel sad. I have been so prone to anesthetize myself from any negative emotion or worse try to figure out what I need to do to change my circumstances. I have felt a measure of peace these last few weeks. I have a pretty good job I mostly enjoy. I have an opportunity to educate myself; not only professionally but emotionally, spiritually, and artistically. So when I’m feeling down I take it like a wave crashing over me and I take heart that the wave will crest, and pass, the feeling will pass. I hope you get to feeling better. If your writing is any indicator I am sure you’ll be able to face your situation with grace.

  2. I get like that too sometimes. Usually, it’s a result of hidden irritation building up – and suddenly it reaches a kind of climax and you just feel sad without being able to pinpoint it to one reason.

    Hope you feel better!

  3. The picture says it all. I has a sad. I know I’m technically in hiding right now myself, but I wanted you to know that i am still here and I do understand. We will both get through this, I promise.

  4. We all go through this from time to time…I just got through it. I just kept writing though little of what I wrote made it to my blog, in fact I think the delete button took care of most of it. It will pass…in the meantime know your blogging friends understand and are sending you hugs.

  5. Like Dora said in Finding Nemo … “Keep swimming, keep swimming.” We all have our days of challenges. Thank goodness there were no cameras in the car this morning, as I drove the kids to school.

  6. Feel better. We all have days like that – sometimes weeks. I never know how much to say either. Hope things improve soon, like, immediately!

  7. You normaly do a great job of being an upbeat person who gets peple involved in your Blog and shows an enthusiam for life. To be a bit down on occasion is entirely natural, and to express it is great because it helps get it out and share a part of yourself

  8. I think it’s a good idea to use your writing/blog to express your feelings. You can be as vague or specific as you want. As long as it works for you.

    A lot of times it feels like we’re standing in one spot, or in limbo, while other people are making (what we perceive to be) progress. We have to remind ourselves that timing is everything, and it’s not the same for everyone. We won’t all start our own business, get accepted into university, get engaged, have babies at the same time. It just doesn’t work that way. As long as you’re working toward what you want, know that it will come along right when it’s supposed to. No sooner, and no later. It’s up to us to enjoy the journey. πŸ™‚

  9. Sometimes we feel like we are “standing still” right before the wind shifts . . . opening up new possibilities. Think . . . Mary Poppins. πŸ˜€

    For what it’s worth, I don’t mind bloggers sharing an OCCASIONAL down day with readers in order to get a QUICK LIFT of support, advice, or encouragement.

    But when posts start bouncing around from LOOK AT ME! I’M ON THE TOP OF THE WORLD to . . . OMG, STOP THE WORLD I WANT TO GET OFF . . . I lose interest.

    I tire of bloggers more interested in GETTING attention than in GIVING back and SHARING insights.

    If you want tips to turn your mood around . . . you can search by word or category on SLTW. Use “happiness.”

  10. Sorry to hear you are feeling so down, it happens to us all from time to time. Time sorts everything out, and it will with this. I find putting my feelings down on paper helps, even though I do nothing with it – just getting it out helps. Take long walks,watch animals at play – the simple things in life always seem to do the trick for me.
    You will find your peace Vix, and in the meantime, you have the support of some wonderful friends here who really care about you.

  11. Girlfriend, it’s your blog… can write whatever you want! Hope things start to look up for you soon, I’ve had too many sad days of my own lately but thinks are getting better.

  12. I think it is great to let it out. Everyone has those days. If no one likes the fact that you have a bad day, then they don’t deserve to be your friend or blog reader. They should know every one gets these feelings. And I am hoping that you have a much much better day than today.

  13. Hi πŸ™‚ I’m new to you and your blog, but I’m not new to feeling sad. Take your time, feel your feelings. Everything changes…the wheel will turn. Everyone visits the blues sometimes. Hope yours is a short trip.

  14. I think everyone is different. I don’t think what you said would bring anyone down, nor is it too personal. It’s just a way of letting your online friends know how you are feeling without a bit of TMI. I think a lot of us feel in limbo, I know I do, I feel unsure of what to do or how to proceed. But at the same time I don’t feel comfortable putting it all out there. There is an incredible risk to that. But I think mentioning it, like you did isn’t so bad. Plus maybe it made you feel a bit better, I hope it did.

    You are definitely not alone, a lot of us don’t know what’s going to happen, and even if you are going down a path you never know what obstacles/challenges and opportunities lie ahead. So there is always a bit of uncertainty to life. I guess that makes it entertaining?

  15. I too have experienced sadness, uncertainty in my work and feelings of disconnection. I know that I’ll have them again as time goes on. It’s comforting to know that it’s a phase for me and I get over them sometimes through talking, sometimes through writing and sometimes by just letting it pass.

    This is why I say that laughing at the malfunction of the universe is better than crying about it. Sometimes crying is easier I know, and it’s releasing. But I always think that five years from now, I’ll look at my woes and think … what was I thinking … then chuckle about it. We are all beautiful works in progress.

  16. You didn’t depress me. It is good to get it out. I hope your spirits lift soon, but if not, I’m still here. Happy Weekend.

  17. If you feel it’s too personal to share, you can always use the private post function and only choose a comfortable amount of people who can have access. I find writing to be very therapeutic and if it’s not on something too controversial or inappropriate I will blog about it to let it out.

  18. Well love, if anyone understands exactly how you’re feeling it is yours truly… The last several months have been a true whirlwind of emotions full of ups and downs; leaving me to question what I’m doing and where I am going. I still honestly don’t have a clue. BUT, surrounding yourself with good people (even if they are in the blogging world), taking care of yourself and allowing yourself the opportunity to reflect are so very important. It is ok to feel in limbo… we’re not meant to know exactly what lies ahead for us even though it is human nature to WANT TO KNOW what we should do or where we should go.

    This is your outlet… write away and don’t worry about what others think. Do what it takes to take care of you… if it means a couple pensive posts or that you don’t blog for a little while, you do what it take for you to make right and feel right. So long as you are true to yourself, you can do no wrong.

    Miss you. xoxo

  19. I’m glad you did say something. Thinking of you, cheering you on, and hoping you navigate these rough waters in no time. ♥
