In July of 2016, Tumblr user acutelesbian, a 23-year-old writer from Ohio, went viral with a beautiful yet tragic post about her greatest relationship fear. Based on an experience she had in high school, her post showed a maturity, and pessimism, beyond her years.
Her post quickly went viral, to the point that she worried about the message it was sending to strangers. What had started as an intimate portrait of her state of mind at one particular moment was spiraling out of control, spreading across the angsty world of Tumblr at breakneck speed. In October, she shared a followup post to clear the air. Describing the previously unmentioned conclusion to her high school story, the second post was much more hopeful than the first. It was also, if anything, more beautiful.
Now, both her posts are going viral with a whole new audience after being shared on Imgur. It's a clear testament to both the quality of her writing, and the universality of her sentiments. Also, people are just relieved to see something sincere and thoughtful on the internet, instead of more Crying Jordan memes. Not that we don't love a good Crying Jordan meme.
