Hello and happy Adele day to all those who celebrate. If you haven’t already, call out of work. Do it. You deserve it. We've been waiting six years for 30, so this is a special occasion. Pour yourself a glass of morning wine. Something white, perhaps. Draw the curtains and grab a nice heavy blanket and some tissues, because we are getting in our emotions and we are staying there.

On Friday, Adele released her fourth studio album, 30, and it didn’t take long for fans to confirm their suspicions: it’s a full-on emotional minefield. Mind you, that's not saying it's predictable! Sometimes it's sad power ballads. Sometimes it's sad party anthems. Tracks like “Oh My God” and “Cry Your Heart Out” hold their spots as the much appreciated Adele going-out-track.

But we’ve gathered here today to ugly sob at the gut punches—“To Be Loved” and “My Little Love,” in particular. To paraphrase one Twitter user, Adele isn't for the single or the committed. She's for everyone who wants to pretend to go through a divorce with a child. That's your right.

You’re not alone in your noble journey to shake out the emotions you’ve been saving up over the past couple years. The internet has joined together—a rare moment of online unity—to celebrate that 30 is an album that allows us all to be broken as we came. Overly dramatic. Unhinged. Don't fight it!

Below are the best reactions to Adele’s newest release.

Stay strong today, everyone. And seriously... take the day. It's going to be a long journey back to wholeness.
