These ‘Unspirational’ Quotes Are Freaking Hilarious

Share on Facebook

If you are like me and you believe that there is nothing more infuriating than motivational quotes and cutesy Instagram inspirational posts, then boy oh boy, do I have an Instagram account for you! Uninspirational is your favorite new Instagram account. Seriously– go follow it right now. It is bright and full of beachy waves and soothing colors and trendy fonts, but the messages it shares aren’t the kinds of maddening and empty “inspirational” garbage that so many other accounts share.

Instead, Uninspirational keeps it exceedingly real. They share un-motivational quotes for those who understand that life is garbage and the world is going to end. For people who can never drink enough coffee, who can’t talk to people without wanting to crawl in a hole and die, and who generally can’t take it anymore. If you are a curmudgeon who cringes at the bright, shiny veneer of social media, this is the Instagram account for you.

Instagram can be full of empty, soulless posts. Many will share fluffy quotes telling you how to live a better life.

And they are infuriating. If you aren’t falling for the motivational crap all over Instagram, these posts are for you.
