sinónimos de "triste"
Im looking for a word for the strongest feeling of sadness. when you are "beside yourself". what's the expression in spanish? I dont want the expression to involve anger, only sadness.
And oh, fortunatley im not the one filled with the emotion :D
Hi loveisanord. If nobody has done so already, let me welcome you to the Spanishdict forum.
Besides the great answer given by Marianne, you might also say melancólico (melancholy), afligido (upset/heartbroken) or apesadumbrado (glum/saddened/sorrowful/grieving)
She was beside herself with sadness -> estaba fuera de sí de tristeza
How about "deprimido?"
Is it sadness with tinges of loneliness, no place to turn, no hope for joy ever again, forsaken, not self pity but just the harsh reality that there is nobody to share the sadness? Utterly alone on the barren landscape of hopeless sadness?
If this is it, "desamparado" is your word.
Otra opción es "achantado".
yeah, that's the one ! Thank u so much. can't believe how friendly and helpfull u all are. im beside myself with joy that i came across this site :D
"Besides herself" might be Fuera de sí de tristeza
You might be able to use loca de tristeza as well, but I am not sure. The only thing that comes to mind with this expression is when it is used with de curiosidad and de alegría, but I suppose it might be possible to use it with sadness as well.
También podría ser "Melancólico".
well yeah it could work, but im looking for a more litteral expression. the context is more or less: "Esta llorando sin parar, "besides herself" debido a la boda"
i want it to be desperate. If u know what i mean?!
but thanks anyways
