If you 're one of the well-adjusted people who doesn't spend all day on the internet, then you've likely missed a serious of memes mocking people who conflate friendship with "emotional labor."

The term is So Hot Right Now, and was first used in 1983, when sociologist Arlie Hochschild described emotional labor as the need to "induce or suppress feeling in order to sustain the outward countenance that produces the proper state of mind in others." In other words, it's the need to pretend to be happy as not to piss anyone else off.

Just last week, a tweeter named @yana shared a screenshot of one of her texts, in which she prefaced a potentially stressful conversation with her friend with arguably the most stress-inducing text of all time.
