I have been searching for an idiom for saddened for quite a while now, and am not found an answer that satisfied me.
I have found the idioms below
• down in the dumps- Someone who is down in the dumps is depressed or feeling gloomy.
• down in the mouth- When someone is down in the mouth, they look unhappy, discouraged or depressed.
• face like a wet week-end
however, those didn't suit my needs as the emotion it was expressing was a bit too strong for me, as I was simply describing a scene where the dreary weather influenced my mood (sort of like saddened).
I am thinking if there's any idioms or phases or just words which describes my situation. Thankyou !
