Anxiety is a real bitch. It plays tricks on your mind, makes you feel uncomfortable and just generally sucks. If you're someone who struggles with anxious thoughts, you definitely aren't alone.

40 million Americans over the age of 18 are affected by anxiety, which is roughly 18 percent of the nation’s population, according to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America. Even though it can be difficult to live with that little voice constantly telling you that you're wrong and that the world is basically ending, people with anxiety are actually strong as hell because they have to work twice as hard to make it through the day. And we don't let it stop us from living our best lives.

The best way to live with anxiety is to live with anxiety with a sense of humor. We found some relatable as hell memes that will make every anxious person LOL and then be like, “YEP.”

Sometimes it's easy to beat yourself up about overthinking and anxious thoughts, but every once in a while you remember that it isn't even your fault! Your brain has an actual chemical imbalance that is causing you to think this way. The imbalance in serotonin levels is influencing your anxiety, not you!
So, sometimes you have to pull out your binoculars like Leonardo DiCaprio and look for where all that serotonin went… maybe you left it in the ocean?
