Bad day illustrations are cute but sad

There are times when you have bad days. But sometimes, those bad days turn into horrible weeks, and those horrible weeks turn into difficult months.

And sometimes it can bring a dose of much needed comfort to know that you are not alone, that other people have felt that way and that you aren’t the first person to navigate tricky waters. A few gentle words can be all it needs to find solace and help cheer you up.

Which is why we love this series of illustrations from the tumblr imightbedeadtomorrow.tumblr.com , in which the idea of anxiety is explored, using typical thoughts of an anxious or depressed person and creating something rather lovely from them.

We've selected some of our favourites below, but you can follow their blog which is updated daily. And if you know of someone going through a difficult time, why not reassure them that they are not alone and send one of these lovely images over to their inbox.
