You’re on your phone and searching for an emoji that describes what you’re really feeling right now. But you don't find it. Alas, you go to bed using REAL words. Oh what a shame. Friends you’re officially all slaves to emoticons. We bring you emojis you didn't even know we needed but were groping around in the dark for and tell you just when and where to use them.

1. Privilege : ‘I don’t really understand this pertinent issue but I’ll still talk about it’ emoji

When to use : You saw people post about this on Facebook and skipped it. Your friends can’t stop talking about it and now you feel like you need to put an opinion out there or else you’ll be deemed ‘ignorant’.


2. Rejection : ‘What part of ‘no’ means ‘no’ do you not understand’ emoji.

When to use : When they just can’t take a hint. Wear the “no” like it’s your god damn right, BECAUSE IT IS.


3. Mental Health : ‘My mind also needs to rest and heal’ emoji

When to use : When everyone’s using the “tired” card and you need to give them a heads up that so is your MIND. Stick and stones may break your bones but answering emails at 3 am breaks my brain. Understand people.


4. Convenience : ‘Apna kaam banta bhaad mein jaaye janta’ emoji

When to use : When you see right through the speech of a neta who’s going to change the narrative whenever the political currents change, because it’s ‘convenient’ . Use THIS.


5. Climate change : ‘This planet is doomed if we don’t do something about it now’ emoji.

When to use : Well you can use this one, just about all the time. But especially when you're wondering why it's raining in December and March feels like you’ve set up camp next to the sun! (If it isn't obvious already, our planet is LIT. And not in a cool way)


Wouldn't our lives become a bit easier with these handy emojis? Also tell us in the comments section below what other emojis can you think of that definitely need to make it to this list!
