Ever since you've taken that introduction to Philosophy in college you can't stop thinking what life is really all about. I feel you; the same thoughts attack me after I watch an episode of Bojack Horseman. But there's a way you can tame your inner void. Instagram account 'Texts From Your Existentialist' totally knows where you're coming from and is ready to help you cope with melancholy.

April Eileen Henry, a poet from sunny Los Angeles juxtaposes art - mainly, paintings and movie stills - with bleak philosophical text messages to "bring more messages that speak to the pity party line and the seldom spoken sadnesses of life." Scroll down for your daily fix of harsh truth, and upvote your favorite images.

and that's why being alone in the comfort of your own company is one of the best things of the world and absolutely under-rated.

Fun fact: some scholars suggest that the orange/red of the sunsets in Munch's series 'Der Schrei der Natur' was inspired by the world-wide atmospheric effects in the early 1880s that of the dust dispersed by the eruption of Krakatoa. Others think that it was influenced by the presence of a local abbatoir and/or asylum, but from reading letters by Munch the Krakatoa explanation seems to me to be more likely. Either way, he seems to have keen insight into the emotions of pain and/or distress...

Maybe you need to find yourself now. Life didn't leave you, she just took a step back and gave you the reins now that you understand. Bring out the life inside you.
