The Final Chapter TikTok Trend Shows Reality Of Break Ups

Jasmyne Jeffery March 25, 2023

Though TikTok is a great way to escape, lots of people use it to show real life too. One of the ways to do that is by showing the realities of breakups, and how things don’t always end badly. That’s exactly what the final chapter TikTok trend does.

The last stages of a relationship are normally pretty obvious when the feelings are mutual, but it can still be hard. That’s especially the case when there’s still love for one another, but the split is necessary. TikTok‘s latest trend explores that heartbreaking feeling of needing to move on that we can all relate to.

What Is The Final Chapter Trend?

The trend shows a picture of a typewriter with the words ‘the final chapter’ written on some paper. The video will then show the final messages between a couple breaking up, or someone taking the necessary steps to move forward from the relationship.

Those taking part in the trend typically use the DENII – suara alsi sound with it, which gives some emotional dramatic music to accompany the video.

The final chapter hashtag has a huge 51.7 million views, so clearly it’s a situation a lot of us have experienced.

You can easily get involved with the trend by using the sound and making a capcut edit with the typewriter image. Just screenshot it from another video to use in your own. Though it’s not the most fun trend to take part it, you might find it cathartic if you’ve just been through a breakup.
