Mental Health Memes That Are All Too Relatable
Staying positive in the face of heavy inflation, climate change, and about 4,500 other depressing tidbits from the evening news, is no easy task. Caring for your mental health is more important than ever. We're happy to say that elevated awareness has reduced stigmas around mental health, and there are more resources for education and support available than ever before.
Sometimes, however, you don't need another article about healing childhood trauma. You need a good laugh. These mental health memes did the trick for us, and we hope they do the same for you.
Have You Tried Practicing Mindfulness?
No, Janet, I've never heard of mindfulness. Thank you for this life changing information. BRB, I have to tell my therapist the great news that I'm cured.
Let's Normalize Being Both Fierce and Fragile, Shall We?
Who says you can only be tough or breakable? We're working on the whole "resilience and self-care" thing, but in the mean time, we'll either come off as aggressively indestructible, or a house of cards. No in between.
At Some Point, Laughing Is a Valid Response
Don't you love it when you know you're being ridiculous, but now you're committed to it? So fun.
Us? No, Never
We probably misspelled something in this story. Maybe no one will notice. Maybe we're fundamentally bad at our job and our success was pure luck that will eventually crumble, revealing our true identity as talentless, incompetent slugs? It's a toss up.
The Dishes Need to Be Cleaned Now
Right now. They've been in the sink for two days, but they have to be washed now because we also have 15 more urgent matters to intensely avoid ... by doing the dishes.
Seems Like a Stupid Question
If we knew the answer, why would we be in therapy? Isn't that their entire job?
Projection? What Could You Possibly Mean?
We're not projecting. We're broadcasting in 8K Ultra HD. Our thoughts are more expensive than Hulu+.
Full Disclosure: Fully Disclosing Is Uncomfy
This is why breaking up with a therapist is so hard. If they were even remotely competent, they know too much about us.
When They're Just Pulling Your Chain, but Your Chain Is Rusty
Please. We've been riding the same bike since 2008, and the chain falls off every time we ride it. If you pull on that chain any more, the bike may crash and spend the following two days overthinking in a ditch. Do not pull on that chain.
Just Answer. Why Is It So Hard?
How else will we know if you hate us? It's like you grew up with a secure attachment style and have never experienced a crippling fear of abandonment or something.
Go back. We liked the old fashioned villains better. Godzilla was less stressful.
Finding Love Is Tough When You Assume Most People Are Terrible
Have you seen dating apps, though? They're not exactly reassuring. If it helps, every clever, relatable meme is made by a human being that totally gets you. You'll probably never meet them, but at least they're out there.
Petition to switch our primary care physician to a neurologist.
At Least the Song Stuck in Your Head Is Catchy
How does that theme go, again?
Whatever happened to predictability?
The milkman, the paperboy, the evening tv?
How did I get delivered here? Somebody tell me please
Cause this old world is just really confusing me?
Oh. We spoke too soon.
Stop. Go back to having fun. Why are you doing this?
It Is Time
Who else is one stubbed toe or spilled coffee away from losing it? Maybe we should all go to a rage room to smash some plates?
Anything But This
When you'd rather watch Human Centipede than be alone with your thoughts, maybe it's time for therapy.
When You Want Support, but Don't
We all need a shoulder to lean on sometimes. Some of us simply do not trust the shoulders not to walk away unexpectedly.
Whatever This Cow Is Going Through, Same
Should we be learning from cows? In times of stress, stand in the surf and watch the waves roll in to emphasize how insignificant your silly human problems are in comparison to the vastness of the universe. No more thoughts. Only sand. You now identify as a crab. Snap at a seagull. Eat some plankton. Be at peace.
Forget Sick Days. We Need Void Days
Life happens so fast. Sometimes, you need a break just to process everything.
How Did We Forget About Crunchy Leaves?
Don't forget the smell of rain, and that first sip of hot coffee on a cold morning. Also, outliving your enemies. If that doesn't cheer you up, don't forget that your existence makes a difference and you're fundamentally enough, just as you are.
Never thought we'd aspire to be a middle-aged man bathing in a summer stream, but here we are.
Hey, Don't Come for Us Like That
Who doesn't need a good cry now and again? It's cathartic. Look it up.
Bet Spiderman's Therapist Said That Too
Time to attack our therapist with silly string to prove her wrong. We'll let you know how it goes.
Our dream job, really. Do they mind if we yell "just keep swimming" with increasing intensity throughout the day? Because that would seal the deal.
If Even Mice Are Anxious, Cut Yourself Some Slack
This dude's biggest stressor is the existence of cats and a lack of cheese. Your life is more complicated, we assume. If you ever feel silly for being stressed, don't. We're right there with you.
Do As I Say, Not As I Do
Living by example is harder than we thought it would be.
Nothing to see here. Just suffocating under the pressure of crippling self-doubt, parental disappointment, the fear of never living up to our potential, and disappointing everyone we love. Also, Netflix just raised its prices again. But we're fine.
Isn't the Ocean Beautiful?
Us: It would be even more beautiful if we were here with a loving partner, but we'll probably never find one because of our proliferation of character flaws. Also, our chin is kind of weird. No one's going to love someone with a weird chin. Guess we'll just die alone.
The ocean: ......
Us: You're right. I should book an extra session.
The Mental Health Meme We Really Needed
The vibe of this one is immaculate. Resilience at its most fabulous.
