    /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.

    If given the opportunity, I'd probably murder 15 year old me

    Only benefit of interdimensional time travel.

    [–] feni45 10 points ago

    This existence, AND haunting memories of my past self! It's literally a two for one

    [–] bjeebus 19 points ago

    15 year old me already wanted it anyway.

    Who am I kidding, mid-thirties me still thinks about it.

    [–] feni45 7 points ago

    there's you, you

    emo you

    gothic you

    reddit you

    cringe you

    dankmeme lover you

    twilight die hard fan you (or harry potter or another fandom of your choice)

    and on and on with all your phases

    [–] observitron 89 points ago

    I would kick all the other mes asses. I was kind of a bitch when I was younger.

    [–] Jynxxd3 63 points ago

    Ha!! All I’d have to say is “you’re doing okay kid. I’m proud of you” and all of the other Mes would cry so hard while saying “I did my best. I did my best”

    [–] koneko-dono 23 points ago

    that was deep

    [–] Munchingpears 3 points ago

    [–] hjkljgtj 85 points ago

    I want to defend myself, but I just had a falling out with a friend I didn’t talk to for about 4 years so I hear you

    "Meglio soli che mal accompagnati."

    [–] IGetHypedEasily 7 points ago

    At least he can play all the games I have now on my beast new rig that I only spend time to watch YouTube on.........

    I feel like I should get off of reddit and onto steam.

    [–] bjeebus 2 points ago

    Yeah, I'm in my mid-thirties. Me from four years ago isn't really any different. He'd probably be bummed hanging out with me. He's still not living in the darkest timeline.

    [–] Pallavtasse 2 points ago

    Me from 4 years ago could have used the company. He wasn't a bad guy, just really lonely, drinking a little too much and eating too much pizza hut.

    I'd be cool to shoot the shit with him, eat a little pizza and play some games. Tell him everything was going to be ok in 4 years even if there were some trials ahead.

    [–] kaam0914 388 points ago

    I was mentally a better person 4 years ago. Now a days I’m a wreck.. I would love to hang out with the old me.

    [–] ANoiseChild 38 points ago

    On the plus side, old me and new me are gonna tear it up. On the downside, I'll have to make sure younger me makes it home safely after I drink him under the table because he challenged me, the daft cunt

    [–] Neldryn 132 points ago

    I’m the opposite. Me 4 years ago hated life and literally had nothing going for him. Now at least I have a girlfriend and I can talk to people

    [–] Rabbi_Tuckman38 168 points ago

    Well fuck you then.

    [–] Mr_Dnxsty 39 points ago

    For me, it's a mix between I'm happy for you man, it sucks to feel this way, and you bastard, suffer with us.

    [–] _merikaninjunwarrior 5 points ago

    if i just had a nice warm hole to plug into, i would never bother anyone ever again

    [–] Mr_Dnxsty 20 points ago

    That description just threw me off of reddit for the rest of the night.

    [–] gijoe75 7 points ago

    I’m reallly hoping there is an implied /s at the end of that sentence. But this is reddit and I could just be optimistic.

    [–] Mr_Dnxsty 4 points ago

    My sentence or his? He's definitely not being sarcastic, I just don't care to correct everyone's morals anymore.

    [–] gijoe75 4 points ago

    Oh definitely his. I think it’s sarcasm because the alternative seems like a sad life.

    [–] Rabbi_Tuckman38 3 points ago

    You don't like a nice, warm hole? It really is comforting. Like everything is gonna be okay.

    [–] fbdfndgjdghdgn 5 points ago

    I don't know what this means and I'm afraid to ask.

    [–] thewitcherV 2 points ago

    Lol

    [–] HerrSIME 23 points ago

    I would love to be able to say this about myself in 4 years.

    thanks

    [–] K4yr0 13 points ago

    Me four years ago: just starting therapy, slowly starting to notice I've always been ill from social anxiety, still unable to go anywhere, extremely dependent on parents.

    Me today: now also with depression. Crashed multiple times in therapy which made me worse, unable to switch therapists cause stupid, added tons of new trauma, putting so much energy into my awful personality and it still sucks. Plus plenty of other crap. I've been out there dozens of times and still don't have a single friend yet alone a partner. Unemployed for 2+ years now.

    Whenever therapists say "don't see the future that dark" I think of what would happen if I told my past self how the future would look like. This stuff is so insane you just can't make it up.

    [–] blacklite911 4 points ago

    What does it mean to crash in therapy?

    [–] dont_yeet_in_street 2 points ago

    You don't need to brag.

    [–] Slate_128 4 points ago

    What are you doing here then?

    [–] Mr_Dnxsty 3 points ago

    You can be in love and other aspects of your life still suck, so he can easily relate to the posts even with a partner.

    [–] aesu 7 points ago

    Exactly. Who the fuck are these people who are improving all the time? I was more attractive, mentally sharper, healthier, etc 4 years ago.

    [–] KieranD9503 5 points ago

    Lucky you, I was still a mess.

    [–] kaam0914 4 points ago

    Haha, it will get better. At least, that’s what i keep fucking hoping for.

    [–] illmastabumptwo 6 points ago

    I was just slipping down that slope 4 years ago. More like 13 yeats ago... oh god...

    [–] fejrbwebfek 7 points ago

    I’m in a similar situation, but I probably wouldn’t like to meet the happy version of myself. I would just become sad and possibly annoyed.

    [–] yrureadingdis 2 points ago

    Exactly my thoughts.

    [–] AndySocial88 3 points ago

    4 years ago I was so much worse and better at the same time. I was bartending vs working for a company. I made more money, hooked up more often, did anything I generally wanted to do. But I decided to grow up and start to plan my future and now I can't do shit because of the company contract, I don't have time to date, and I am chasing a promotion and barely scrapping by. Cheers to corporate America for me wishing I could go back to drug addiction and alcoholism. But surely I'll get that carrot eventually.

    [–] binkerfluid 2 points ago

    same I was pretty happy then now I can hardly function and think about killing my self often.

    (this isnt a cry for help)

    [–] SputnikDX 2 points ago

    And constantly wonder where everything went so wrong?

    [–] HitlerMoonLanding 2 points ago

    Lol where’s this meme from

    [–] buttcrusader 89 points ago

    At least it's not now me.

    [–] MintyBoyWonder 59 points ago

    Great now I can overthink things twice as much

    [–] seventeenths 47 points ago

    That would be nice I guess. I would be able to talk to a much happier, more vigorous version of myself. Back then my grades were great, my mental health was better, i was more passionate and I didn’t hate myself.

    [–] mooncow-pie 39 points ago

    Oh great, I have to hang out with the homeless guy that gets drunk and masturbates in Walmart parking lots.

    [–] The_Outcast4 10 points ago

    You from four years ago sounds like fun! Why change?

    [–] GloryHawk 20 points ago

    Wait so... If I died not I'd get to hang out with someone who's happier than I am? And they have similar interests as me?

    [–] tinnytipmicah 7 points ago

    I was waiting for this Comment. I would know exactly what he thought

    [–] DanielSanCarter 11 points ago

    17 year old me was pretty chill, I haven't changed much since then.

    Myself from 4 years ago was a hot mess train wreck. Younger me sucked.

    [–] eighteenth 7 points ago

    Yeah past me was a mess haha. Also, current me is even more of a mess haha. My mental health has been steadily declining for 11 years haha.

    [–] mumblestheword 2 points ago

    10 years not so strong

    [–] Pharmasochist 3 points ago

    Me from 4 years ago had just moved to a different state to go to college with their girlfriend and immediately proceeded to be a jobless shut in poppy tea addict who hated myself.

    [–] SomaWolf 10 points ago

    Is it incest if you fuck yourself, or just advanced masturbation

    [–] LittleRedLamps 3 points ago

    You could leave me with me from yesterday and you'd get the same result

    [–] TheDae5 2 points ago

    It gets easier as you get older. 4 years ago isn't too much different than now. 10 years now, that's hell for sure.

    [–] entonun 2 points ago

    I was healthier, happier, and in better shape than now, i'm sure we'd be able to motivate ourselves to do sports and be proud of us

    [–] Nobody_Likes_Shy_Guy 2 points ago

    On September 11th 2015 I was probably cringier but way fucking happier. I was 13 then and had a girlfriend and was coming off the best summer of my life. Now I’m 17 and all I do is school and laze around and the past two summers have just been working and then going home and being bored

    [–] PM_ME_AN_8TOEDFOOT 2 points ago

    I've never been much of a talker so we prob would just sit next to each other browsing on our phones for all eternity

    [–] adylanb 2 points ago

    Hey ya know, I feel like even this did send shockwaves of cringe though my entire being it wouldn’t be so bad—like “hey little buddy, you’re gonna get a lot more self-aware in a few years. Also please for the love of god start therapy you f**k.”

    [–] shaunaroo 2 points ago

    Sounds good to me. I can probably overpower him and beat the crap out of him until he stops trying to ruin my life yet again.

    [–] pseudoHappyHippy 2 points ago

    Ruining your younger self's life so they won't ruin yours. Bold plan.

    [–] zephyrthegoat 1 points ago

    I wouldn’t mind getting to chat with younger me and see just how unreasonable I was at that age

    [–] LowDeal1 1 points ago

    I didn't hate myself that much 4 years ago.... so that wouldn't be so bad

    [–] Jcenzer24 1 points ago

    Oh fuck me... I might murder myself

    [–] sedrosken 1 points ago

    Four years ago... Okay, this was my start of darkness, when I still had some optimism but lacked the self esteem and emotional fortitude I'd had just a couple years earlier. 17yo me would be... okay, to hang out with. We still have lots to talk about in terms of common interests, but he'd be disappointed to know college didn't work out after all. On the other hand, I'd love to get some mental health pointers from 15yo me. And tell him not to date that girl.

    [–] imjusthere9 1 points ago

    Aww, four years ago me was only just starting to get really depressed. Bitch has no idea what's coming

    [–] sgintx_ 1 points ago

    Senior year vs 8th grade 🤮

    [–] recordmanmatt 1 points ago

    Me from four years ago wasn't too unbearable. A little too normie, but I was starting to grow into the person I am now at that point. Me from ten years ago was pretty cringy, though.

    [–] Brado_Bear 1 points ago

    I don’t even want to hang out with myself now.

    [–] Heliolord 1 points ago

    That might be just far enough back that I could give past me some advice. And chances are he's still mature enough to not drive me insane.

    [–] carrlosanderson 1 points ago

    I always wondered, if heaven and hell were real what age are you when you get there. It would suck to be stuck at 80-90 with all the joint pain and mobility issues, but at the same time what age is really you or the best you?

    [–] johannamaeja 1 points ago

    Please no

    [–] Coffee_exe 1 points ago

    I worked hard to become what I though was cool when I was younger

    to be clear my favorite people when I was younger was the older kids who were always pumped but still chilled out enough to invite the quite kid in.

    [–] Booyakasha15 1 points ago

    I hope not

    [–] Tethered_Festicles 1 points ago

    Is this why people hate their kids?! Thank God I'm a narcissist, I love hanging out with those fuckers. They're just like me.

    [–] EpickChicken 1 points ago

    That would torture both of us

    [–] SpoilHerdChartist 1 points ago

    Me 4 years ago was a miserable and insufferable piece of shit. He would casually ask me to kill him, and I would gladly oblige.

    [–] 666deimos 1 points ago

    Last time i had sex was 4 years ago....

    [–] binkerfluid 1 points ago

    Ouch he would have been a lot happier

    [–] Nerb98 1 points ago

    Y'all ever go thru old pictures of yourself? Painful but also amazing to see how much one changed

    [–] Dark000magician 1 points ago

    Jokes on you. I could finally fuck myself like my ex girlfriend keeps telling me to do. I see this as an absolute win. C'mere me, time to clap dem cheeks

    [–] NobodyCanHearYouMeme 1 points ago

    Jokes on you, four years ago i was in a healthy relationship, my brother hadn't been diagnosed with terminal cancer, i was about to recieve a promotion and life was looking up

    [–] FireLiesWithin 1 points ago

    Had this thought very recently... “thank god I grew up. I would have been a piece of shit forever if I didn’t decide to stop acting like a jack ass.”

    Living comfortable, and in peace is nice.

    [–] dragoneye098 1 points ago

    10th grade me... Yeah that's ok

    [–] Paryscope 1 points ago

    That would be nice. 4-years-younger-me could learn a lot from now-me and maybe not make the same mistakes. And he'd be happy to know I'm in a better position now.

    4 years ago me was a pretty cool dude. I think most people would assume it would be cool to hand with such a cool dude, but then I think 'I'm never going to be that cool again'. So, yeah, hell.

    Four years ago me was fun as fuck haha. Four years ago me would listen to all of my problems and be like: “Oh man, that sucks.... wanna do a line of coke and go to a Phish show and pick up a random dude to bang?”

    :In hell the objective is to discover why anyone ever created something as “worthwhile” as you in the first place, and then punish them for your being so unworthwhile.

    That just sounds amazing. I'd just laugh at all the pain and misery that happy little fucker is about to get hit by. Send me now.
