Instagram Account Calls Out All Our Dramatic Thoughts And It's Hilarious

"I think I've outgrown reality already."

From waking up on a Monday morning with every complaint in the book to dramatic existential crises, sometimes we just don't have the firmest grasps on reality in a world that's constantly pulling us thousands of different directions.

But clearly we're not alone: Instagram account Texts From Your Existentialist (TFYE) combines all of those inner monologues with fine art in the most witty, perfect way possible. 


And "Follow at your own risk," writes.

Using works like Edvard Munch's "The Scream," or John Waterhouse's "Mariamne Leaving the Judgement Seat of Herod," the account perfectly executes humor, drama, dread, fine art, and, of course, text messaging, with each and every post.

The Huffington Post calls the account an Internet "hat trick," explaining that it "pairs renowned artworks with deeply Nietzschean quips, resulting in a stream of achingly bitter but oh-so-wonderful images that bemoan the state of human existence."

Moreover, Bustle writer Lucia Peters says she thinks the account makes a direct point: "No matter how old or young you are, there are some things about the human condition with which we will always struggle. The mode of delivery... may change from time to time and from generation to generation; the message, though, is often the same."

In this case, "It's about questions: Why are we here? How did we get here in the first place? Should we be doing something more with ourselves?" she adds.

April Eileen Henry, the woman behind TFYE, started the project as a visual aid to her poetry, according to her website.

So if you ever need a good laugh at your spontaneous moments of unclarity, your dramatic conversations about all the things you can't (or perhaps can) control in life, take a scroll through this account. You'll be glad you did.
