Some internet content is so relatable and hits so hard, it sometimes feels like it was personally crafted just for you and you alone. However, when you start talking about these memes aloud, you can come to a startling conclusion: a lot of other people feel the same way, and have plenty of shared experiences, whether they’re positive or negative. And some of them fight the very same mental health battles.

The popular ‘Memes to Discuss in Therapy’ Facebook page touches upon this memetic connection that we have. The page is dedicated to sharing memes—both funny and serious—that are often relatable to a painful degree. And, as the name of the page suggests, they touch on topics and struggles that you might want to consider discussing with your therapist if you have one.

Let us know which of these memes you relate with the most by giving them a big old upvote and leaving a comment. And remember, if you think that January feels as long as a year, you’re not alone.

Nearly 617k people follow the ‘Memes to Discuss in Therapy’ page on Facebook. What’s more, the project has 585.5k likes on the social media platform. In other words, it’s proof that the content is relatable, witty, and a lot of people feel that it’s worth their time.

The Facebook page describes its content as stuff that’s “found on the Internet that feels like a personal attack and should be discussed with my therapist.”

And speaking of therapy, there’s still quite a lot of stigma attached to the idea that someone’s reaching out to a professional for help.

I never understood why looking at people who are more successful/better looking that you would be depressing. Good for them, why would it affect me? it's nothing to do with me. Unless they are very bad people. Bad people doing well can be depressing.

Earlier, Fashion Life spoke about the stigma of seeking professional help with British psychotherapist Silva Neves. He pointed out that, in his opinion, the situation has been improving over time.

“I think it is getting better and there is less stigma seeing a therapist now. It depends on your location though, there are still some parts of the world where therapy is still a taboo. Some people think that seeing a therapist means that you're 'crazy,' but this is not actually what therapy is about," he explained.

"Therapy is a confidential and private space where you can get help from a professional with anything that bothers you, from your work problems, relationship issues, or other psychological problems such as post-trauma stress, depression, and anxiety," the therapist said.

"Those things are actually very common and many people struggle with these things, it doesn't mean they're ‘crazy.’ Seeing a therapist when you have emotional struggles should be as normal as seeing your doctor when you have a physical problem. But at the moment, our society hasn't normalized therapy yet. It is changing with famous people talking about the benefits of therapy such as Lady Gaga and Prince Harry,” the therapist told Fashion Life.

Therapist Silva said that some people who have deep-seated insecurities can lash out at others to make themselves feel better. However, with proper self-compassion and learning to accept themselves as they are, they can develop a new, healthier mindset.

“Insecurity can manifest either by making themselves invisible (If I'm not seen, nobody will notice my flaws) or the opposite, by what we call 'bragging': shouting at everybody about how wonderful they are. This is usually to try to persuade themselves that they are good enough,” he said.

"Another way to counter the 'I'm not enough' [mentality] is by pushing others down, sabotaging other people's success, or attacking people as a way to feel powerful so that they can control their inner pain of 'I'm not enough,’” he said.

“All of these strategies don't work because what they do is either internalizing or externalizing the belief 'I'm not enough' rather than changing it," Silva explained.

"The key to becoming more secure is to change the underlying belief 'I'm not enough' to 'I'm enough,'" the therapist told Fashion Life.

"Perhaps parents didn't praise children enough, or they paid more attention to the mistakes rather than the successes. As an adult now, people can give themselves a hug once in a while and tell themselves, gently: 'you're doing good,' 'well done,' 'congratulations.' Eventually, the brain will listen and slowly change the message 'I'm not enough' to 'I'm enough,'" he said that everyone can try to overcome their insecurities.

"Rather than shouting your praise at other people, it is about speaking to yourself in a loving way. When people are genuinely aware of their successes, they can become genuinely more confident without the need to impose their power onto others."
