Quarantine has changed us: Reflect with the “you changed” meme
2020 has knocked the wind out of a lot of us – and it’s not over yet. So far we’ve had a global pandemic, a serious economic collapse, & world-changing protests. With a monumental election coming up, we’re all being put through the ringer.
When (if) we come out the other side, who knows who we’ll be. People change all the time – but when years are this rough, there’s no doubt that we’re all going to go through a full-on metamorphosis. You may be jaded, tired, sad, or just different.
The newest meme to hit twitter is the “you changed” meme – and it illustrates our post-quarantine metamorphosis perfectly. Whether these make you laugh or cry or both – at least we know we’re not alone. Here are some of the best “you changed” memes we’ve seen so far.

Being stuck in a house with family is rough. Especially when you literally can’t leave. Such a nightmare.
“you changed” bro i haven’t been to a cinema in 6 months

Going to the theaters is a wonderful experience. Without it, is there any reason to leave the house?
“you changed” yea bro im depressed now

Depressed? You’re not alone
Considering the circumstances (isolation, fear, paranoia, anger) – depression is likely spreading faster than the virus right now.
"you changed" bro phoebe waller-bridge stopped writing killing eve

Why Phoebe Waller-Bridge? We need you
Phoebe Waller-Bridge has been our saving grace and now we’re not getting more from her? 2020 really is a dumpster fire. When it rains it pours.
“you’ve changed” bro i went a whole ass summer without a single music festival

Desperate for tunes
Listening to music through headphones is not the same as hearing it live.

Thank you for this cheeky one, Ken. You rock.

This post is both heartbreaking & extremely relatable. It’s so easy to just give up right now.

Beleiber fan crushed
Some may be sad about all of the grave stuff happening on the news – but I guess some are mostly impacted by Justin Bieber’s marriage. To each their own.
“you changed” bro I’ve been in lockdown for months and came to the realization that you don’t bring any value to my life

Telling it like it is
Sometimes it takes quarantine to help us sort out who is worth our time. Get rid of those fake friends who add nothing to your life.
“You changed fr” bro I have boundaries now
— mars (@mar1narasauce) August 14, 2020
Step TF back
Time away from people can really illuminate how much we need space. Stand up for yourself – assert your boundaries!
How have you changed during 2020?
