Hey Everyone!

I'm wondering something is it weird for me to not be happy when it's light out but when it's gloomy I'm happier because it speaks to my depressed self inside? I've always wondered if there's something wrong with that. My family and friends think it's a little odd because it doesn't look like I like the gloomy weather but I actually do even though I act like I hate it.

Anyway, I should probably stop rambling along about my problems now. Later everyone!

It's ok to ramble Show ☺. That's what we're here for ☺. And don't worry. I've known women in the past who loved the gloomy weather, and they weren't even depressed. Only you know yourself better than anyone else. Embrace what you like. It's what makes you, you 😀

I am the same way and thought it was odd. I figure if it's nice, I will be expected to enjoy life. I don't. Gloomy allows me to be gloomy. I wish I could figure out my problems. Keep plugging away!

Everyone is different and that is okay. For example, I prefer the night to the day because I find it peaceful, calming and soothing. However, I am trying to be "present in the moment" regardless of the time of day or weather - and to make the most of my time. Enjoy the gloomy weather, but I hope that you can find enjoyment in life regardless of the weather.

This is great!!! There's nothing better than a rainy or gloomy day. <3 Those kinds of days are so cozy to me. The sunshine tends to bring out more people, so i don't like to go out much on those days. I absolutely love to stay in on darker rainier days & snuggle up with my art, crochet, or a book. :D :D

I think that your preference is perfectly all right!! I see what you mean that it would speak to you (if you're dealing with depression) ~~ so, no, I see nothing wrong with this on your part! We are supposed to get rain tomorrow nite & early next week, so I'm thrilled.

xxx :D Best to you. :D xxx

I hear ya Artist....Though I need the occasional day of sun once in a while lol. We've just gone through a week straight of cloudy weather that was cold and rainy....and even saw some snow fly! (I live up in northern New England) Seeing the sun was a bit of a boost but I totally get where you're coming from :)

Hey, that's cool Artist! 😀. We all have our favorite things in life. It's what makes us special! Growing up in Virginia, I used to love sitting outside as a thunderstorm would roll in. Something about how the wind felt on my skin made it so exhilarating! 😀

I’m happy on cloudy days like today because they remind me of other cloudy days. Days where I work extra hard to be extra comfy and I enjoy that comfort much more.

I’ve had a trillion sunny days and they’re all the same, but the gloomy days are the days that stand out.

I’m the opposite, I need sunshine or else I’m in bed being non productive which makes the depression worse. My grandmother always told me we need rain for the grass and flowers to grow, etc. That didn’t help me like the rain or clouds anymore.
