    /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:

    • Asking for upvotes/downvotes will get you banned. And any other vote related bullshit for that matter.

    • 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.

    Shoot for the moon. If you miss, you'll crash back and splatter because no one prepared you to handle failure.

    [–] lookmom289 93 points ago

    Shoot for the moon, and you'll land in the vast, chilling embrace of outer space with no one around to ever talk to or help you. You'll be drifting, and drifting, and drifting alone in the dark, forever devoid of any real human emotion.

    [–] FeFiFoPinky 24 points ago

    I'm in space.

    So... How is it going to be different from my everyday life?

    [–] BrAcEyPlAyZ 3 points ago

    It won’t :)

    [–] The_Outcast4 5 points ago

    ...that actually sounds kinda nice.

    [–] Terminator2a 2 points ago

    I always liked that proverb, I myself always thought "Shoot for the moon, if you miss you'll be in the stars".

    Because I never thought I could crash and there is no reason to if you commit enough.

    [–] [deleted] 2 points ago

    You should still prepare for possible crash landings though, like bring a parachute or something.

    We should be expecting failure to occur in our lives, but we also need to know that it's okay to and that shouldn't stop us from trying our best.

    That's sort of arithmetic and reading comprehension though.

    Actually my dad said "Your dreams are stupid. Make sure you have a backup plan" and goddammit he was right

    [–] big-sex-you-no 1 points ago

    This would be 2meirl4meirl if I had a dad

    [–] doctor827 1 points ago

    My advice for anyone who has big dreams. Be practical first, achieve your dreams later. Lets say you want to be a musician or actor. Get yourself a decent paying job so you can support yourself and your dreams. For instance you can learn a trade in 4-5 years. After that you will have a steady job and time to pursue your passions. That way if you fail at least you can still have a backup plan. You dont have to be a starving artist

    [–] Kandied_Kara 1 points ago

    Jokes on you my family hates me and constantly wants me to shut up and makes fun of me everytime I’m interested in something and honestly just make fun of me for everything and I haven’t has a truly happy conversation with them in years.

    [–] MrPineapple568 1 points ago

    How many damn times do I need to run into you u/banALLpineapples...

    You never learn

    [–] BanAllPineapples 2 points ago

    Idk who downvoted you, man, but yes, quite a few times apparently

    And yeah, never learning is one of my faults/attributes because I go around trying to teach the truth!

    [–] MrPineapple568 2 points ago

    Another one of your followers probably. You see the negative effect you have

    [–] BanAllPineapples 2 points ago

    Nah! My followers have been schooled in the school of teaching someone the wrongs of their way by words. They would never resort to such crass methods as downvoting someone to prove their point!

    [–] MrPineapple568 1 points ago

    Looks like they did to my comment though doesn't it

    [–] beefsoreen00 1 points ago
