'Mentally I'm Here' Memes Showcase The Brutality And Escapism Of 2020

If you haven't been in a coma for the bulk of 2020, then we don't need to tell you that shit is MESSED UP. And people are coping with the year's joys in different ways. While rich folks have packed their families up to country homes, most of us are stuck escaping through television or the internet. And some of us are just wasting away in the most depressing corners of our brains.  And there's a new Twitter meme that kinda sums up all of that.

On the site, savvy twitter folks are using the text "mentally i'm here" to show their followers exactly which route they've taken. While some users are choosing to mentally transport to, say, Star's Hollow (the fictional town in Gilmore Girls), others are depicting some pretty bleak Spongebob grabs or other solitary, soul-sucking scenes. Here are some of our favorites.

'Cancelling Plans Is Ok' Memes Are Full Of Pop Culture References

A corny motivational tweet about self care has morphed into an insane Twitter meme rife with film, television, and even fandom references. While some of the jokes can be repetitive (people seem to love riffing on Parasite and Midsommar in particular) the general theme of slowly letting people in on a joke is universally fun. We're also in support of anyone willing to mock internet influencers who think their motivational tweets are remotely deep or revolutionary.

'I'm Actually at My Emotional Capacity' Memes Mock A Cold Tweet About 'Emotional Labor'

People have been talking a lot about "emotional labor" lately, and most people have the concept wrong. Emotional labor actually refers to how we manage our emotions in the context of work - often adjusting how we feel and express our feelings to please a customer or an employer. In contrast, as people become more aware of the time and energy they put into taking care of the emotions of others, they use "emotional labor" to describe that very "chore." 

A new Twitter meme has definitely made us think about this misused term - and for good reason. Earlier this week, Melissa A. Fabello tweeted a bout a text she received from a friend asking if Fabello had the emotional capacity to entertain some venting. After expressing gratitude that her friend had thought to ask (and that she absolutely had the capacity) she offered up a text template for when you need to tell a person that you can't help them through their moment.

"Hey! I'm so glad you reached out. I'm actually at capacity / helping someone else who's in crisis / dealing with some personal stuff right now, and I don't think I can hold appropriate space for you. Could we connect [later date or time] instead / Do you have someone else you could reach out to?"

The tweet quickly went viral, with many users criticizing the tweet for its cold, almost businesslike tone. And once something goes viral on Twitter, it's safe to assume it will become a meme. This has definitely been the case with this template. People mocked it heavily on Twitter, sharing their own versions of the text. It's also spread around Instagram and Reddit in image macro form. We're enjoying the meme, but there's nothing funny about treating your friendships in a transactional matter. Maybe this text will help people realize they should open their hearts instead of closing them. 

Funny tweets, hey i'm so glad you reached out, i'm actually at capacity.Hey! I'm so glad you reached out. I'm actually at capacity / helping someone else who's in crisis / dealing with some personal stuff right now, and I don't think I can hold appropriate space for you. Could we connect [later date or time] instead / Do you have someone else you could reach out to?

Midsommar, this summer's hottest horror film opened last week and has garnered quite a bit of attention. Matt Caron decided to remix the trailer with that of cult classic Wet Hot American Summer, and it's the best thing we've seen all week.
