But the Blues Are Still Blue

I am experiencing my semi-regular blast of existential angst today. Honestly, I don't know what my problem is. At this moment, and in fact since it hit me yesterday evening, I feel as alone and lonely as I have ever felt. I am just so fucking sad! And I don't know why.

Sometimes it is OK to go through that. The good stuff seems better when it all passes.

I'm so sorry. I have been there and will undoubtedly be there again. Give yourself lots of slack and watch tons of movies.

Everyone goes thru it.
You are not alone!
Watch movies or eat ice cream but know that you will be bouncing back - just need some time.

l.b. The worst thing about it, when it comes with no obvious trigger, is trying to figure out how to arrest the cycle that can otherwise just keep spiralling downward.

One thing to do is just plain let go of you own judgment of yourself. If you're blue, it's likely inaccurate. It's undermining your self-esteem.

Think about someone who loves you and knows you well and thinks you're swell just exactly as you are. Do you trust their judgment in other things, non-"you" related things?

If you do, trust their judgment on this topic for a few days. They're probably right.

Just in case you've read enough of my blog to trust my judgment, at least a little, here's my opinion: I think you're swell, just exactly as you are.

Evil-E: That is a nice way to look at it. The bad stuff makes you appreciate the good stuff more.

Churlita: Movie therapy is good...as long as it is the right movies :-) Thanks.

Viki: Thank you. It does help to not feel alone in a feeling or situation. And all hail mint chocolate chip ice cream.

DiDC: Good advice from a good man. I will try and seek out those who would encourage and support me.
I'd like very much to trust the judgement of someone who thinks I'm swell...thank you.
