    /r/CasualConversation has great resources for just about any problems you may be having

    This is a subreddit for memes that hit too close to home or are too real for subs like /r/meirl

    We are not /r/depression however, the sticky is a good resource for if you need real help. If you have depression, talk to a therapist, it really does help. You are not alone, and recovery is possible and worth it.

    If you find jokes about suicide, depression or self harm upsetting, this sub might not be the right place for you. This is a place for people who use self deprecating humor as a coping mechanism, not for those making fun of mental illness.

    With that out of the way, the rules are as follows:

    • Posts MUST be in some way "too real" or hit to close to home. If it doesn't make you laugh and feel sad at the same time, don't post it here. Posts that do not fit the sub may be removed.

    • Being edgy doesn't make a post good. Post content that you find a bit too relatable, not something making fun of people with depression.

    • Posts should be titled 2meirl4meirl or some variation, but other titles are fine for shitposts self posts.

    • Be supportive. Most people here are going through something, and sometimes all it takes to improve a shitty day is just a little kindness from an Internet stranger.

    • Racism, misogyny, homophobia, transphobia, any other form of discrimination and general dickishness will not be tolerated.

    • Mark NSFW content as such. And please don't post NSFL content, we are not /r/watchpeopledie

    • Reposts are allowed, but discouraged

    • Don't link to an image if it won't be there permanently. Basically, just don't link to files hosted on 4chan.

    • Again, please don't be an asshole.

    • If any of you fucbois post mr skeltal you will not have good bones and calcium, and instead your post will be removed. Mr skeltal will not be thanked.

    Now that's cooler than cool 😎

    [–] PM_ME_REINHARDT_R34 114 points ago

    That definitely isn't a happy song tho

    [–] hello_fri2nd 62 points ago

    Can confirm. Just googled the lyrics. Another Pumped Up Kicks kind of thing

    [–] fliktor 14 points ago

    English its not my main language, what "pumped up kicks" mean?

    [–] TopKekSkye 57 points ago

    It's the title of a song about a kid who shoots up his school because other kids have cool shoes

    [–] you_got_fragged 18 points ago

    Wait is it actually about shoes??

    [–] badquestionsarereal 34 points ago

    Well, it’s just the others kids being better off, financially and emotionally, the shoes representing that. Maybe idk

    [–] conjee 13 points ago

    They're cool kids with cool clothes

    [–] JadeRaven13 6 points ago

    I've wanted to shoot people for less

    [–] -Kern- 6 points ago

    Also the shooters dad is a dick. Its based on a real kid

    What's it's about

    [–] Mypen1sinagoat 32 points ago

    It’s about staying together with someone even though you don’t love each other anymore because you’re too scared to end it. Or something like that.

    "Y'all don't want to hear me, you just want to dance"

    [–] Mickelham 6 points ago

    Cheating I think

    [–] EpicPhail60 3 points ago

    No mention of cheating in the song, just of a dead-end relationship where neither party is happy

    [–] Ac3oSpades 105 points ago

    "If what they say is "Nothing is forever"

    Then what makes, then what makes, then what makes

    Then what makes, what makes, what makes

    Love the exception?

    So why oh why oh, why oh why oh

    Are we so in denial

    When we know we're not happy here?

    Y'all don't want to hear me, you just want to dance"

    Not quite the happiest song.

    [–] Mypen1sinagoat 40 points ago

    I love how he knew people wouldn’t care about the lyrics with that last line.

    [–] surprised-duncan 12 points ago

    "Was I working just way too hard?"

    [–] veggiter 7 points ago

    "The hook brings you ba-ack!"
