The wholesome side of TikTok will make you cry for all the best reasons

Do you ever just scroll through TikTok (whether it’s for hours or mere minutes) and find yourself suddenly crying? And no, not because of yet another annoyingly cute couple TikTok, but because a random stranger on the internet told you that you’re going to be just fine. 

There is a very wholesome side to TikTok and it’s a personal cheerleader we never knew we needed. From affirmations, words of encouragement and wisdom, to mental health check-ins and more. 

Here are few of the numerous TikToks that can give you the warm fuzzies and tell you things you might have needed to hear right now. 

Before you read any further, let’s have a quick mental health check-in break.
