• When you take a picture or look at picture do you tend to think what might have happened before or after the picture was taken. Social media nowadays is like the picture and whatever happens behind  closed doors

    • Dear Anonymous,
      I thought that your perspective on the matter was quite interesting. I agree that James Charles has an internet persona and an IRL persona because that is the way most youtubers are and I can see where your getting your assumptions. Your post has me thinking of some questions though, I wonder, did you think about how he became a popular youtuber displaying the persona he has now? I’m pretty sure he has other influences on the way he acts toward others IRl. I believe people or youtuber above him may have downed him or that as he gained a bigger influence on social media other fans may come at him with disrespect because of what’s going on in their life.

    • Dear anonymous,
      Ok yes Tati did put him under the bus with what she has done. But Tati isn’t like that, she just wanted to show to the world what she through that moment was bad about him, kind of like what you’re doing right now. Yes she does have money and so on, but majority of the people who saw that video were people from other places, some never heard of Tati before so she wasn’t using her fame in that sense. Kind of like Pewdiepie, he didn’t know any of them just watched the video because drama. At this moment, everything pretty much diffused though.

  • The silence and bright lights surrounded my life for three years;it was fearful. I’ve never felt death walk around within dull walls until I stepped foot into what felt like a dream, a dream that felt endless.

    • Dear Anonymous,
      I thought that your braveness was interesting in your post. I agree when you talk about your own personal life and thoughts into a post to be shared with us.

    • I like how they shared personal things about their problems.

  • “What’s the point of trying?” A constant thought that roams my mind on a daily basis. Restless nights, lack of energy, worthlessness, guilt, worry, and the list goes on.

    • I thought it was great that you opened up and talked a bit about your problems with depression. Being a mother and being depressed isn’t a great combination but you’re working hard to get through it and be there for your daughter. I didn’t really know that a large number of students are dealing with depression and anxiety go untreated. Do you whether this is in the country or worldwide?

    • Dear Anonymous,

      I thought that you said when you referred to ” it will always be there but just know how to control it” that depression and anxiety will always be a factor is something that i thought was interesting. I disagree when you stated that because those defense mechanisms would only take over if you allow it to. Do you think that working on self discipline will help a ton in this situation?

    • That’s what sucks about us being Hispanic and having family who are undocumented. We have to go through these types of worries and emotions that no person should ever have to go through. We are seen as the enemy when in reality we are trying to survive and do better for our future children.

    • This is very powerful and relatable! But even if we face these hardships, we are the heart of everything! Don’t forget that.

  • Throughout generations, parents have assumed their children wouldn’t make mistakes in life, despite their older siblings making them. What parents forget when it comes to their children is everyone makes m

  • At a very young age, I have been around an addict of alcohol and cocaine.

    I never thought in a million years I would grow up with it tainting my childhood. The addict was my brother and it has been hard to

    • A few years back, I had a similar situation, older brother as well. Except it was Acid, also causing havoc, and generally causing mayhem. No one can control nor really oppress the actions of someone who’s allowed themselves to be overtaken by drugs.

    • The struggle with knowing someone who’s a drug addict is the worst, especially if they’re family. My dad is addicted to benzoylmethylecgonine, also known as cocaine. It has been hard as a child and as a teen. Personally, I think it affects you a lot more as you grow older. I agree with you because once you start a drug that is easy to get addicted to there’s no going back, unless with the help of people who understand. Rehab facilities are great places for addicts.

    • I’m sorry about what you went through when you were younger. No one deserves to go through something like that. You’re very strong for opening up about this, it’s courageous of you.
