Social media and self-esteem

Sometimes we think we're being rejected when that is not true. Not getting a lot of likes on a post or seeing your friends having fun without you can make you feel inadequate.

But you can use social media in a positive way.

  • Use social media for conversations. Send direct messages to friends or comment on friends' posts.
  • Follow people and connect to people in real life that make you feel like you belong.
  • Most importantly, remind yourself of all the positive people in your life that you are grateful for.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
