Blog Directory - Blogged

  • All your positive self-talk doesn’t work.
  • You can’t talk yourself out of catastrophic thinking.
  • Singing songs about disasters is disastrous.
  • Your friends are telling you to snap out of it, but you have no snap left.
  • You’re trying to get a grip on things, but you’re gripless.
  • You can’t find the bootstraps to lift yourself up by, even if you knew what they were.
  • Your melancholy is more like cholera than melons.
  • You’ve been hoist in your own petard.
