One of those depressed days

July 9, 2009

Yesterday was one of those "depression" days. I don't know where they come from, and I certainly don't like them, but several times a year, for no apparent reason, I get just a wee bit depressed. (And when I say "Wee bit" I mean "a lot".)

Once the depression kicks in, I've taken the approach of riding it as low as it will go. My theory is "Some times you have to go low to get back to high", so instead of trying to fight it, and think of all the reasons I shouldn't be depressed, I just think, "Fine, I'm depressed, let's go for the ride, feel bad for a while, and see if we can get over this."

Fortunately I had an okay turn-around this morning, and in fact, became very angry. Not something I want to do all the time, but hey, it's better than depressing.

My iTunes "Depressing" Playlist

I even have an iTunes "Depressing" playlist set up. Here are some of the depressing songs on that song list:

There are more, but more importantly, if you'd like to share your own depressing song suggestions, feel free to leave me a comment. I'm sure I'll be able to put them to use. :(
