On the one hand, mental health struggles are no laughing matter.

On the other hand, if they’re something you deal with all the time, laughing is a great coping mechanism.

What to do with this seeming contradiction? The same thing we do with everything.

Look at memes.

11. The big lie

Come friend, let us laugh ourselves into oblivion at the gates of nothingness.

10. Past, present, and future

I think the real question is what DON’T I have to be anxious about?

9. Bye bye

Well, I guess that’s it then. Didn’t really learn to ration the stuff very well.

8. No tears

If I can’t trust the things in my shower, who or what can I trust?

7. Don’t play

Everything inside me is not working, there will be no prizes.

6. Pile it on

I think this might be the guy all those math problems warned us about.

5. A simple suggestion

And here I was purposefully making myself miserable all the time for no reason.

4. A banner year

All signs point to meh.

3. It’s me, ya boy

We’re gonna have a grand old time down here.

2. Relatable

Oh Ross, you were the worst of us.

1. The overthinker

Excuse me, this is clearly my exit.

If you’re truly struggling, remember that it’s ok to reach out for help.
