a case of the…

1 October 2009

It feels like my self-esteem has been up and down lately.  Most days it’s up.  I generally feel pretty awesome about myself, which is kind of a cool feeling.

But sometimes it’s just down.  There’s not one thing that I don’t feel happy with, but just a general, overall not so great feeling.  Not having something to pin down this negative feeling, it makes things a little challenging.  It’s harder to give yourself a pep talk when you can’t figure out what you’re not happy with or about.

I wouldn’t say that I’m depressed.  At least not currently.  And hopefully not again any time soon.  But I know that the next week, and possibly the whole month will be hard.  I’ll get through it though.  I’ve got a great support network of family, friends, kittens, and cupcakes.

(I’ve already had two cupcakes today… and the kittens have been providing some great entertainment this evening.)

  • Feelings like that make me think of Breakfast at Tiffany’s. The case of the Mean Reds, Holly Golightly called it.

    Holly Golightly: You know those days when you get the mean reds?
    Paul Varjak: The mean reds, you mean like the blues?
    Holly Golightly: No. The blues are because you’re getting fat and maybe it’s been raining too long, you’re just sad that’s all. The mean reds are horrible. Suddenly you’re afraid and you don’t know what you’re afraid of. Do you ever get that feeling?
    Paul Varjak: Sure.

    Wish I could give you some company to enjoy those cupcakes.

    • Wish you could be here too. Those cupcakes were purchased with the intent of being shared… Would have been nice to do so…

  • You also have a great – so I think – support network here, so when you are down or need to rant and rave, we’ll always be here reading (even if late, like I am right now).
