First, let’s get one thing out of the way. Depression is no laughing matter and over 322 million people around the world live with some form of depression every day. It can affect adults at any time during their lives. Depression memes are not meant to ridicule people with depression, they’re meant to offer a small distraction and let people forget about any issues or problems in their lives, even if only for a second.
When people are sad, helping bring a smile to their face can make all the difference in their day.
