“I’m in a bad place right now. Not mentally. I just live in New Jersey”

"I’m in a bad place right now. Not mentally. Just [X]” is a meme that has been printed on many images.

“In a bad place right now. Not emotionally, just at work...” was posted on Twitter by Deea on November 24, 2019. “im in a bad place rn. not emotionally. just at work” was posted on Twitter by Meybeli on January 7, 2020. “i’m in a bad place rn not mentally, i’m just at work” was posted on Twitter by J on January 20, 2020. “I’m in a really bad place right now. Not emotionally, I’m just at work” was posted on Twitter by Ethereal Trash Fire on July 20, 2020.

“I’m in a bad place rn… not mentally I just live in Hamilton, Ontario” was posted on Twitter by sitara on January 13, 2020. This tweet helped start the meme, and “Hamilton, Ontario” is replaced with other places.

“I’m in a bad place right now. Not mentally, I just live in New York” was posted on Twitter by Miss Cariss on January 19, 2020. “im in a bad place rn not mentally i just live in New York” was posted on Twitter by S O A S later on January 19, 2020. “I’m in a bad place right now. Not mentally. Just New York” was posted on Facebook by Some White Dude on May 19, 2020. “I’m in a bad place right now .. Not mentally, just New York” was posted on Twitter by bhatesyouu on February 2, 2021.

“i’m in a bad place rn...not mentally i just live in jersey” was posted on Twitter by safa on January 13, 2020. “i’m in a bad place rn. not mentally i live in new jersey” was posted on Twitter by darf maul on January 21, 2020. “i’m in a bad place rn. not mentally, i’m just in new jersey” was posted on Twitter by MN later on January 21, 2020. “I’m in a bad place rn, not mentally, I just live in New Jersey” was posted on Twitter by [Money with wings] on January 22, 2020.

“im in a bad place rn [Broken heartBroken heart] not mentally i just live in the united states” was posted on Twitter by “thoughts that are not cosmetic” on May 24, 2020, and in the same hour on Twitter by cr0b1n. “im in a bad place rn… not mentally, I just live in the United States 💔” was posted on Twitter by w0rmb0y on May 27, 2020, and this tweet received over 800,000 likes. The saying surely was infuenced by the 2020 COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic.

“I’m in a good place right now. Not emotionally. I’m just at the liquor store” is another version of this meme.
