25 Tweets That Will Make You Feel Better About 2016

At this point, you are probably aware that 2016–as in, like, the year–has more or less become a meme. Or, to be more exact, the year 2016 is literally a meme now, based upon the popular (well, popular according to my newsfeeds, at least) opinion that 2016 was the worst year ever. And, to be fair, this year was pretty bad. The election was bad. The trends were bad. Literally (fine, figuratively) everyone, it seemed, died.

Of course, 2016 itself did not cause 2016’s problems–those issues were present long before the year started and will most likely continue into the next. Still, while I think that the idea that the start of 2017 will somehow void all of its previous issues and provide a fresh, clean start is not particularly helpful (and, in fact, may even be actively harmful) collectively hating on the events of the past year is as good a coping mechanism as any. Another good coping mechanism? Seeing the bright side. This was not so easy to do this year, it is true, but, at the very least, this year did produce a lot of good tweets. So, check out these tweets that, for a variety of reasons, should make you feel a little better about 2016:
