Sad and disappointed.

depressed - dejected - despondent - downcast - dispirited

Wow! Google images for crestfallen and you certainly see a hodge podge of images- some predictably angst ridden with gothic undertones, scroll down some really not suitable for work!?!? Billy Corgan from the smashing pumpkins and quite literally the most beautiful picture of Keira Knightley (random) I have ever seen and of course the below picture of the crestfallen elf.

I am wordy by nature an my obsession with *colour* shades, hues etc etc is equally matched with a love of language and words and I love using words that really pinpoint exactly what you want to say with such accuracy and for me the word crestfallen explains perfectly when hopes and dreams evaporate in front of your eyes, the wind goes out of your sails and your get up and go literally *deserts you*. It can happen professionally: not getting the job of your dreams, being passed over for a promotion, always being overlooked and undervalued. Personally....well affairs of the heart definitely, being treated unfairly, taken advantage of all of these things and so much more.

Oh yes,I have been there so many times, in the running for a job (dropped at the last minute), jobs cancelled, overlooked and treated like a douche- still can happen! All I can say is that things have a very strange way of working out and you never know but something far better and more worthy may be just around the corner and if it is a guy or girl treating you in a way that makes you feel crestfallen- simply, they are not worth it.

May the force be with you!

Beautiful shot of Keira Knightley- unsure of photographer but from LA Times article.
