Random Coldplay thoughts...

Hello Everyone!

I briefly returned to the forums in May after a long absence but then vanished again until now. I've been struggling the whole year, it all started back in January and the covid situation just made it all the more worse. From reading the posts here seems I'm not the only one having a hard time.

I feel stuck in a job I'm not happy in anymore, haven't been for a couple of years now. At the same time I recognize I'm lucky to still have a job that has given me a chance to live a relatively normal life. I have a roof over my head, a car and some money to buy a Coldplay record if I want to. At the same time I feel very unhappy, stressed and anxious most of the days at work. It used to be fun, but now that money is becoming increasingly tight it makes everything that much harder and people are on edge. We've had temporary and permanent layoffs and it's not looking any better in the future. Waiting for the axe to fall is very tiring and even if it doesn't I would be ready to move on. Dreading the next morning is just not the way I would like to live my life, but I need the income. I've been thinking about looking for other means of employment but it seems I've become somewhat "institutionalized" in these 15 years at my current employers service. It's very difficult to believe I would have something to offer to another firm and starting over is scary anyway. At the same time I'm thinking this can't go on or I'll burn out before long. Add to that the worry about my parents' health, the virus and the world gone mad and it seems I just can't win.

I've got into a habbit of listenening to Coldplay at work when I feel down and it has cheered me up enough to carry on for  the rest of the day. When I joined this site I said Coldplay are changing the world for the better and in these small ways it's absolutely true. If they manage to give hope to anyone feeling down, then they have succeeded and I feel eternally grateful to them. Today Coldplay also managed to make me feel sad that I've not managed to see them live, I hope that can be fixed some day!

If you read through the whole post thank you and sorry for such a gloomy return to the site. I try to take part in lighter conversations as well. 

Hi Charlie!

I'm not quite sure if we've ever interacted here (or anywhere else) but I wanted to say it's great to see you here and feel sorry to hear you're struggling. Life isn't always easy, unfortunately. I know what it feels like when your feeling depressed or down, but remember to never give up. I think we've all been there, take care of yourself! :heart:

Hi Gideon and thank you for the kind words! I'm a bit better now after going through a real low a couple of weeks ago. When you're down it seems so hard to get up again, but this is not the first time and thankfully I've always managed to get through it. It also helps to have loving parents and listening to Coldplay! They really have made it their life's mission to make people feel better about themselves. Chris has a way of coming up with lyrics that always cheer me up, one example being Miracles (Someone Special) that I've been listening to a lot lately. That song has the perfect last words "Don't go to war with yourself, just turn it on". :heart:

^Stay strong! This year has been really tough on me as well -- working from home every single day in a job I don't love and not knowing when exactly anything will change. music also helps A LOT to keep me energized and feeling good. Depending on how you look at it, I think there's some solace in knowing there are so many others around the world experiencing the same stresses right now. It can be hard to count our blessings.

I'm sorry to hear that your day-to-day work causes anxiety and dread... I hope that it can get better or that you find another opportunity.

Hi @lennyrott1, sorry it took so long to reply! I went through a really bad time a couple of weeks ago, but fortunately I had a vacation right after that. It did wonders to get out of the city for a week and just rest. This time of year is challenging for me anyway even without all the stress of work because the days are getting shorter and I spend most of the daylight hours inside. I'm sorry to hear you also are unhappy in your job. It's a tricky thing, to do a job you're not happy with just for the income. On the other hand, seeing so many being unemployed makes me feel lucky to still have a job at all. Music really is the great healer, I've gotten through a lot with it. All the best to you, I hope you also have better days ahead!

For some reason I hadn't got any notifications for this topic in ages, I thought it stopped being active and then I came back here today and see I've missed so many posts! 😝 

Just wanted to say it's only November but I've already started listening to @I ran away's Coldplay Christmas Playlist from years ago!

In December, I plan to host a Christmas listening party on Twitter with that playlist actually !

lol at the ppl online hating on Coldplay for getting the nomination. if the leading arguement you bring to the table is to tear down the other side instead of building your own side, then maybe your side just aint that good son.

I'm still in Germany, missing London so much though! It was really like a fairytale last year. Remember the merry-go-round ride in front of the NHM? 😄

It has been a little while since I last peaked my head inside this little corner of the internet. I can't believe it has been 6 years since I first created this account and became the infamous double poster because the old forum software didn't like me and would regularly duplicate my posts. 😛

Wow... it has been over a year since Everyday Life came out. What a beautiful album. I think it was released at the best possible time--right before the world kind of fell into a state of disorder and turned "everyday life" upside down, with every aspect of life being affected... not to mention, a lot of injustice coming to light... indeed, you could say "the world turned upside down" this year. Everyday Life has helped me cope with it all, as have some older albums from various artists (for example, Radiohead's Hail To The Thief became a lot more meaningful to me). Indeed, music is always there for me when times get tough, whether on a national/global level or even just for me personally. Thank you to Coldplay for making this year a bit more bearable.

Welcome back, long time no see! Ah yes I remember those times. I wish the forum was as active and buzzing as it was back then...

When looking at Guy Berryman's instagram account, I realized he no longer says he is a member of Coldplay but only calls himself'Creative Director @ appliedartforms and @dawghaus curator'. Does this mean he has left Coldplay?

I really doubt it!
 

It still says on the official Coldplay account that he is the only member with his own account.

No.

He just doesn't have Coldplay in his bio all the time

It has just come to my mind that around this time three years ago I joined this forum. I'm feeling sappy and nostalgic right now...

 

By the way, have yourselves a very merry Christmas, folks!

Even if you can't celebrate with your loved ones this year, always remember that there's someone who loves, appreciates and cares for you.

I hope you can still enjoy yourselves and make the best of times like these!
