What does HML stand for?

Hate my life

When someone types HML, they’re basically saying, “I’m not happy with how things are going in my life at the moment.” It’s a way of expressing that they’re going through a tough time and they wish they could be in someone else’s shoes right now.

If you get a message with HML, the sender might be feeling pretty down and out. Attempting to cheer them up might not always be the best course of action. It could even make them feel worse.

So, what’s the best response? Rather than trying to brighten their mood, you might want to let them vent. Just listen to their problems for a bit. This can be a good way to show you’re there for them during this difficult time.

Ugh, HML! 😫 Everything is going wrong today.

Well, I woke up late, missed the bus, and spilled coffee all over my shirt. It’s just one of those days. 😭
