Colorful expressions

As you know, you can choose from a huge list of adjectives to describe your feelings in English. But as an advanced speaker, that can get a little boring. Sometimes statements like, “I am really mad” and “I feel so sad” just don’t cut it, meaning they just don’t fully express the sentiment.

I understand the desire to learn more about a language that you know and love. That’s why I have collected several colorful idiomatic expressions that you can use to express your emotions in English. As a native speaker, I promise that they are ones that are really used (at least in America) and are also effective in expressing your emotional state in a particular moment.
