  • 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.

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.��
