Life can be a lot certain days, and some people are inclined to make everything seem wonderful 24/7 when they post on social media. It can be enough some days to make you wonder whether or not you’re doing something wrong.
Which is why I extra love these 13 people who are okay with letting the world know that they’re holding on by a thread.

11. Unless your hair touches your face.
Hygiene is crucial right now. But only hand hygiene. Same pair of sweat pants for 3 days and washing your hair once a week is fine.

It just kind of makes you realize that you’re not alone if you’re having a day when it seems like too much – and somehow, that feels nice.
How do you deal with your down days? I think humor is often the best medicine!
