I don’t really know how to feel about all the depression memes my generation has brought forth into the world. On the one hand, it seems kind of bleak and awful, but on the other hand, it can be taken as a sign that the conversation around mental illness/mental struggles has come so thoroughly out of the shadows that we’re all comfortable joking about it in a vulnerable way now, and honestly?
That’s kind of neat.
So, screw it, here are fourteen mental illness memes for all of ya’ll on the struggle bus.
14. Talk dirty to me
Oooh yeah baby, that’s the stuff I like.
13. Be a real shame…
It’s like a light switch.
12. Words of encouragement?
Tag yourself, I’m the cabin.
11. Literally me
Hey, at least I’m recognizable?
10. Happy crappy
There’s nothing so good in this world I can’t ruin it for myself.
9. Other than that
“Apart from absolutely everything, I’m fine” has been all of 2020 for most of us.
8. I’ve got some nerve
It’s time to bring the system down.
7. Words of comfort
Thanks, I guess?
6. Let the tears flow chart
It’s a sort of productivity, I suppose.
5. Fresh sealed
When will it explode? Who knows! That’s future me’s problem!
4. The messenger
Quoth the Raven, “I need a hug.”
3. Sweet dreams
Who needs sleep anyway?
2. Mechanical malfunction
When we finally invent brain hackers things are gonna be different.
1. Five year plan
It’s not better, I’m just more chill about it.
Remember to reach out to a professional if you’re truly hurting. It’s not forever, and you’re not alone.
