  • Nice video and yes social media has a lot to do in people’s lives, I myself dont have time for everything so i have you tube, mental health is important, when you live in Michigan this fall to winter change could throw you into depression quickly thanks for the reminder to stay mentally fit

  • i wanna go out but with my friends and have fun like swimming and so but my parents are strict and doesn’t let me out. i even have lack of vitamin-D. What should i do?

  • I isolated myself after deployment. It got much worse after i got out. Its hurt my relationship, i don’t have any sort of social life or circle, humans make me really nervous now, and i am almost unable to feel emotions. Its strange

  • I really thought I would be first this time! I have been making myself take some time off from YouTube and social media lately or at least limit my time. Great message.

  • Seems like the educated worry because of everything they know while the uneducated worry because they know so little. The rich worry because they have so much while the poor worry because they have so little. The old worry because they aren’t young but the young worry because they aren’t older. scripture tells us do not worry about tomorrow for it has enough troubles in itself.��

Becouse the people here left me alone and no love, it becouse of them here in Gent, the people around me have done this to me and for years it get worser and worser with te time. En het is duidelijk, niemand trekt het zich aan dus het is voor altijd. Ik heb me hier neergelegd en het is voor altijd dus want niemand zal het zich aantrekken, zelfs omgekeerd, ze zullen ervoor zorgen dat ik me nog meer zou neerleggen,dat is al duidelijk. Dat wat ze met mij gedaan hebben is iets dat een mens een volledige ideoot maakt

  • Don’t sleep work near your home or backyard and sleep in the evening or dont sleep for 24 hours than sleep at night it and eat food it can recover hope it can help you

  • Ethan, there’s an unseen bond between mankind and nature and the old expression to “take time to smell the roses” captures the essence. Whether sitting in a tree stand or in a watercraft at dawn, there’s nothing like appreciating the gift we have been given. Don
