19 Memes for When You're Anxious on a Sunday Night


Memes. In just a few short words and a funny picture, they can often perfectly describe what life with anxiety is really like. While there’s nothing funny about struggling with your mental health, sometimes a little humor can go a long way — especially on a Sunday night when you’re feeling anxious about the week ahead.

While of course, memes can’t cure anxiety sparked by the anticipation of a new week, they can offer a momentary distraction if you’re struggling to do some last minute chores, or trying to will yourself to get ready for bed.

No matter what kind of mental state you’re in going into this week, we hope these memes can bring a smile to your face.

Who My Anxiety Makes Me

I should probably begin with my name, but my name is irrelevant to who I am. I believe names are the least important factor when it comes to discovering who someone is. We are so much more than names, nationalities and things that can be recognized from just a few words. We are each a [...]
