Can we talk tomorrow? I have something urgent to discuss… [aka my experience of Blue Monday 2022]

Thanks Peep Show for providing an excellent accompanying photo

On the evening of Blue Monday, I was sent a message from a close acquaintance saying “Can we talk tomorrow? I have something urgent to discuss”

  • Maybe they wanted to discuss something exciting like a surprise party for a friend or booking a holiday together
  • Maybe they wanted to draw on my advice on a particularly tricky subject
  • Maybe they wanted to borrow something from me
  • Maybe they were in trouble and needed my help
  • Maybe some bad news had befallen them (I was thinking something to do with their health or the law)
  • Maybe they were angry and wanted to tell me off about something
  • Maybe they wanted to end our friendship
  • Maybe they had been hiding something from me and wanted to reveal it
  • Blue Monday is all bullsh1t
  • Your own mind/assumptions can be far more depressing than the reality
  • In the long run, very few things are ever that bad
