Melancholy is a bad mood and a gloomy state of mind. "Even with a relatively healthy and secure existence, a bad mood can spoil almost everything" (C. Henderson, 2017).

"Melancholy is a sadness that lasts for a long period of time, often without any obvious reason" (Cambridge University Press, 2018). It has a lot in common with the depression mood.

There are times when the entire world seems wrong
When you are in sadness, everything seems wrong. According to Lemony Snicket (2017) in A series of Unfortunate Events "there are times when the entire world seems wrong. The way a reptile room without any reptiles seems wrong. The way a bookshelf without any books seems wrong. Or a loved one's house without the loved one." But, ''as with so many unfortunate events in life, just because you don't understand it, doesn't mean it isn't so.''

Life is a train of moods
Ralph Waldo Emerson wrote: "Life is a train of moods like a string of beads, and, as we pass through them, they prove to be many-colored lenses which paint the world their own hue, and each shows only what lies in its focus."

Let the Melancholy go away
"I may indicate that the 'I' in Melencolia is for Ite - Latin for 'go', in which case it would mean something like 'Go away, Melancholy'" (C. Henderson, 2017). It is time for another colored lense, which will paint your world another colour.
