Okay, we cannot be the only ones who use GIFs to speak exactly how we feel when words just can't. Of course, there have been a few GIFs that have dominated our personal GIF keyboard (anything Brendon Urie, you know...), but there are a few that dominated 2017—and No. 1 isn't surprising at all.

GIF-sharing app Tenor released the top shares, and they're a lot more negative than the ones that were shared in 2016.

"Because Tenor is used to communicate tone and emotion in messaging conversations hundreds of millions of times per day, GIF searches on Tenor indicate how people around the world are feeling," Tenor cofounder and CEO David McIntosh told POPSUGAR. "Not only did Tenor search data show we were feeling worse this year compared to 2016, but that GIFs on Tenor are used to express the full range of human emotions."
