    These sentences are used when somebody is in a bad condition and state!
    So, when seeing himself in an impasse he says: "Şu halime bak!" or in plural "şu halimize bak!" and sometimes even with "ya" : "Şu halime bak yaaaa!"
    The translation is something like:Oh (my God)! Look at my state now!

    They are mostly used in the 3 persons that you wrote (I, you, we). But since speaking is not something limited, maybe in exceptional contexts, could be used for
    other subjects too.

    The most frequent meanings of "Hal" are : state, situation, condition, status.

    And to be noted that, TDK puts an accent on the a if it means what Chaton.marchande said above: hâl.
    If it's used in the meaning of grand bazaar, it's hal.

    In nominative they sound the same, but when you decline them in other cases, the difference becomes perceptible:
    hal (bazaar) → hale (to the bazaar) - pron.: /ha'le/
    hâl (situation) → hâle (to the situation) - pron.: /ha:'le/

    And I add that this writing is only in "Hal" and "Hâl" not in "Şu halime/halimize/haline bak"
