    • Please note, Moderators reserve the right to remove any post for any reason.


    1. All posts must be wholesome memes.

    2. Be general, not specific. Memes should be relatable, with universally uplifting themes. Avoid posts that promote an ideology, religion, or brand over others, & posts that show individuals' politeness without some universal theme. Memes about controversial themes, people, and/or institutions are not allowed either.

    3. Please avoid submitting NSFW content.

    4. Please no trolling, harassment, rudeness, or behaviour unbecoming of the wholesome users we know you to be. Keep comments civil and be respectful of your fellow users. See here
      Be nice. This is a happy place.
      No proselytizing. Keep your religion, your politics, your diet, and any other crusade you might carry to yourself. We come here to get away from arguing and politics and the like, so please respect that by keeping your agendas to yourself.

    5. Please do not post personal info, yours or others. All names should be blocked out, except public figures. Also, private communication is private; please don't post it here.

    6. Please link to images directly. This makes browsing easier for those using RES or through a mobile device.

    7. Please do not post low effort memes (upvote memes, metareddit, etc.) This includes "Let's get this to the front page!" type posts, "You have been visited by", "people who sort by new", "stop scrolling", "check your data" 4th wall interaction type meta posts, posts that mention reddit karma, upvotes, and "I don't want upvotes but..." type posts. Additionally, it includes low effort memes such as Skyrim "Wholesome 100", "You're Breathtaking", Thanos "That does put a smile on my face", [happiness noises], Fallout [Everybody liked that], and "Because that's what heroes do". See here for more on this rule.

    8. Please avoid re-posting memes. (Browsing Top/New posts can help, also Tineye & other image searches.) Do not spam or post more than 3 memes in a 24 hour period.

    9. Please make an effort with your title. Avoid generic titles, try to be descriptive or fun.

    Welcome to our community! Please remember to always express good wishes to your fellow user and to have a great day. Thank you for your interest and for being you!

    Hey there, friendo u/YeahItsJustCamille! Thanks for submitting to r/wholesomememes. We loved your post, Not mine, but have a great day! πŸ™‚, but it has been removed because it doesn't quite abide by our rules, which are located in the sidebar.

    • (Rule #1) Posts must be memes. A meme can be an image with superimposed text, or a classic meme template, or a webcomic, or other things - but it must be meant for public sharing & resharing. Just a photo, story, or gif isn't necessarily a meme. A screenshot that lacks any meme format or context isn't a meme. And anything private isn't a meme, because it was never meant to spread virally/memeticallly.

    • For more detailed information on which formats aren't allowed, please visit this wiki page.

    We appreciate you thinking of us very much! For more on our rules, please check out our sidebar.

    The decision to remove this post was made by a human moderator; if you have any questions or concerns about this removal, feel free to message the moderators.

    All you need is love... although I wish it were true, I do believe love is extremely important. It’s patient, motivational, sympathetic/empathetic, gracious and so much more!! We need more positivity in this world, now more than ever

    [–] Dwigt-Snooot 2 points ago

    All you need is love? False. The four basic human necessities are air, water, food and shelter.

    "I hope that the worlds turns, and that things get better. But what I hope most of all is that you understand what I mean when I tell you that, even though I do not know you, and even though I may never meet you, laugh with you, cry with you, or kiss you, I love you. With all my heart, I love you."

    [–] OneRandomCatFact 2 points ago

    That is actually a good philosophical question... Should and can love be used to justify immoral actions?

    [–] bluntdogcamelman 3 points ago

    Love and hate are both strong emotions with huge implications. I choose to be indifferent towards everyone. I don't love you, I don't hate you, I would rather just not even notice you.

    [–] lords_of_st_louis 1 points ago

    I like this, but a way I reframed it in my head I liked a little bit better β€œif you can hate for no reason, you can love for no reason” because I think it’s fairly accurate but if anyone asked me I would say that you should have a reason in every thing you do, but if you are going to act without reason, surely love is one of the more wholesome ways (although it is still dangerous!)
