Cliches? Yes, please!

Here are some cliches I thought were appropriate this Monday morning, as I look down the barrel of another week affected by mental illness:

  • Always look on the bright side
  • An apple a day keeps the doctor away
  • An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure
  • Another nail in the coffin
  • Any port in a storm
  • Back against the wall
  • Bats in the belfry
  • Better light a candle than curse the darkness
  • The big picture
  • Bite me
  • Blue Monday
  • Boxed in
  • And, to end on a hopeful note: One door closes, another door opens

Church Door


May many doors open for you this week!

  1. I know those doors. I have a photo of them myself. 😉


  2. And also for you x

    My favourite for our community would be ‘It takes one to know one’. Not in the spiteful way it is often used but in the sense that you don’t understand our path unless you’ve walked it.


  3. How about “this too shall pass.”


  4. I love “bats in the belfry”. I didn’t think people still used that one.


  5. Special one for you, DB: “Don’t count your chickens before they’re hatched.”


  6. so much for the organic, free range thing….


  7. Can’t forget “That which does not kill us makes us stronger.”


So, what do you think?
