This trend takes standard meme templates that are usually reserved for relatable yet snarky or self-deprecating humor but, instead, uses these macros to express kind-hearted sentiments promoting a positive self-image, self-love, and overall goodness in the world. An example of a Wholesome Meme would be using the Actual Advice Mallard meme to give honest, useful advice instead of the usual critical advice doled out by web denizens.

It's truly wonderful to see positivity and kindness going mainstream in this way! Here's a batch of wholesome memes that are guaranteed to make you smile, laugh, and most importantly, feel good.
