Sometimes even the most confident and cheerful people get a bit down and start to question whether they are good enough. That is why it is so important to surround yourself with people who wish you only the best and will find the right words to say when you need a little bit of encouragement.
TikTok users understand this on another level as they are demonstrating their appreciation to certain people publicly by joining a trend now dubbed “You are enough” as it uses the song of the same name by Sleeping At Last. The trend is all over the app and the videos are collecting hundreds of thousands of views.

The song You Are Enough was first released in 2014 by singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Ryan O'Neal as a part of the musical project Sleeping At Last. The song was a success then, but now it has been revived once again and became one of the most important components of the popular TikTok trend.
The template of the trend consists of two parts: firstly, a written text on the screen in which a person that is important to you complains about something they shouldn’t is shown. Secondly, when the lyrics reach the part in which the words ‘you’re enough’ are repeated, the image changes and the person in question is shown to convince them they are indeed perfect the way they are.
Children are saying that their parents are enough, no matter what their age or size are. Husbands, wives, boyfriends and girlfriends are persuading their significant others that they don’t need to worry about anything and they love them the way they are.
These TikToks are really wholesome and people watching may shed a tear or two. However, TikTok wouldn’t be the way it is if a trend stayed so serious. Many people took it and made jokes about how others are insecure about their appearance and photoshopped them to make them really exaggerated. But in this list only the true wholesome videos were included.
People need approval from others even if they are convinced that the opinion of others doesn’t mean anything to them. After all, a kind word never hurt anybody. But what do you think of this trend? Did it remind you of a person you would want to say the same thing to? And which of these entries did you like the most? Tell us about it and don't forget to upvote them!
