The internet is a vast, wonderful place. There is information on every subject that you could possibly imagine. Recently an Instagram account has come into the spotlight for its popularity among prison wives. This account does not provide information or emotional support like many prison accounts, but instead provides something that many prison wives need a little more– comic relief.
The instagram account posts funny memes and saying such as ‘Only Queens remain loyal when her King is doing time.’ These photos are liked and reposted by many women who can relate. An added benefit of the account is that it brings many prison wives together, sort of like an online support group.
In situations of high stress and no other options it does not do anyone any good to sit and stew. Sometimes instead of talking about grief, pain and logical steps to take, it just helps to sit and laugh about something you and many other women are going through.
If you are in a similar situation, make sure you look up the account on instagram (Texas Prison Wives) and follow. Who knows, you may even make a friend or two in the comments section!
“This account has given women a safe space and anonymity to seek personal advice, ask questions, and seek other women within their area if they want to reach out.
I think it’s fun to have so many people relate to funny memes even though the direct meaning behind it is about being lonely or the hard things we go through to make this relationship work. It’s a reminder we aren’t alone in our struggle and we can laugh through the pain.”
