Sage Anderson

Words aren't always sufficient when you're feeling low. Sometimes, humor can be the best medicine for a case of The Sads. 

We're all well aware of the internet's potential to be a little dumpster fire-adjacent at times. But at this point we can't just click away — many of us frequently use our social media spheres as tools for coping with everything from mental health struggles to the never-ending nonsense that is the political news cycle.

But even the most well-intentioned use of internet culture for mood lifting can be fraught with bad vibes. While there are tons of self-deprecating and depression-related memes circulating the net, we think you deserve something a bit more uplifting.
