2022 cry recap
it was the year of tears
2022 was the year of tears — big and small, trivial and deep. Crying makeup trended, sad song playlists felt like community, and getting teary on main reached its apex. And honestly, maybe it’s all a good thing. Sharing mixed feelings with you has been one, year-long exhale — in the best possible way.
It is not always easy to celebrate your wins, but this year we did a lot. We launched a new vertical, created a Discord (join us!), posted many (many) memes, and answered some of the questions you needed help with most.
Let’s revisit some of your favorites! The 5 most popular mixed feelings stories this year:
“if i leave my job will i still be ‘cool’?” Work, life, and shifting the vibe.
“i want to be openly bi, but for what reason at this point?” Bisexuality is a superpower.
“i practically begged my therapist to diagnose me” On mental health and internet culture.
“i keep stalking people on social media who are no longer in my life” Dear ✨toxic✨.
“i’m worried i’m becoming annoying, but i can’t stop” Social anxiety is such a drag!!
To sum it up, we discussed, we cried, we laughed, and true to form, we asked you lots of questions. In our final, probing survey of 2022 we asked our community to share all the moments that made us feel the most this year. Welcome to the 2022 Cry Recap.
