Are You In The Right Headspace? refers to a text message template a person shared on Twitter that one could use to approach a friend with bad news. The text reads, "Are you in the right headspace to receive information that could possibly hurt you?" Twitter users, far from finding the template helpful in the spirit intended, joked about the suggestion and commented that the suggestion was awful in numerous ways, similar to Twitter's reaction to the I'm At My Emotional Capacity text.
On November 28th, 2019, Twitter user @YanaBirt tweeted, "I just want to say, a lot of y’all dump information on your friends at the wrong time without their consent. If you know it’s something that could hurt them, ask permission before you decide to be messy. Please," sharing a text message template one could use to break bad news that read, "Are you in the right headspace to receive information that could possibly hurt you?" (shown below).
Twitter users quickly mocked the template. Twitter user @KylePlantEmoji tweeted the message was the equivalent of "that SpongeBob episode where Flats tells him he's gonna kick SpongeBob's butt later, and then SpongeBob spirals into anxiety dreading the inevitable pain," gaining over 600 retweets and 8,300 likes (shown below, left). User @bobby tweeted, "me about to warn my wife that i bombed out the master bathroom," gaining over 120 retweets and 2,300 likes (shown below, right).
The meme was covered by The Tab, Digg, and The Mary Sue. Other popular tweets include one by @Gilofthepeople that referenced the Queen Is Dead hoax, gaining over 430 retweets and 4,000 likes (shown below, left). User @DannyVegito tweeted a Star Wars reference that gained over 170 retweets and 980 likes (shown below, right).
