I Am Feeling Blue

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 82 People

    I wonder when and how did blue get associated

    with feeling down? I don't really care enough to Google it. I was thinking tonight how grateful I am that we don't actually turn blue when we are feeling down. Just a stupid thought.

    Here Comes a Big Whine:

    I've tried so hard to fight this feeling. Now it feels as it's surrounding me from every side and I can't escape it anymore. Nothing goes the way I plan... Why do I even bother to plan anything, when I know that in the end all gets twisted? I'm so tired of failing in everything I...

    More Of A Delicate Shade Of Lilac.. With A Black Bruise Or Three

    Call it a weakened moment or just the pain but I feel blue today.  Could do with an extra few hugs, and some sign that it's all going to work out right.  I've paid my dues, handed the **** back return to sender, and told someone who isn't safe for me to be with to go away.  I...

    Am I Even Real?

    It's a weird question to ask. But I've always wondered. Ever since I was about twelve when it dawned on me that we are all going to die and there's nothing that can be done about it. It's the not the death part that scares me really. It's the idea that maybe none of this is real...

    Blue Memories

    It's been about one day since my "EX" boyfriend let me go. The thing is he wasn't really my Ex at all. We still carried on in the same way we did as when we were in a relationship. I, honest to God, felt that we still reciprocated the same emotions for eachother i.e...

    I have dark blue eyes, but my dad's eyes are like ice. Opposite of his personality though. I think I'm the cold one in the family.

    I adore blue and green eyes but I especially love my own eyes. I think they are probably my favourite thing about myself.
