The ‘upset, weak, lonely, sinned’ meme is here to help you get through life

Pick your poison.

In times of hardship and adversity, everyone has their own ways of coping. People of faith may turn to the good book for comfort, such as Twitter user @brianab1188, who tweeted the following list of negative emotions last week with accompanying Bible verses to ostensibly provide comfort to the individual.

For instance, those feeling weak should supposedly consult John 14, Psalm 2 for the lonely, Psalm 23 for those who have sinned, and so on and so forth.

The tweet itself is hardly original. Know Your Meme points out that just last month, a similar tweet went viral with over 70,000 retweets. However, as the latest incarnation also went viral (currently boasting over 100,000 likes and over 200,000 retweets), this time the rest of Twitter picked up on it and it became a full-blown parody meme.

Many people admitted that they turn to specific songs or types of music when they’re feeling down.

While others understandably turn to substances. No judgment here!

Some people reasonably turn to food. Hard pass on the fruits and vegetables, though.

There’s even one for the Harry Potter super fan!

All things considered, this one probably isn’t the best advice.

God saw all the memes that he had made, and it was very good.
