Facebook Addicts Have Low Self-Esteem?
Ok, so this is definitely one of those things I've always suspected, but now it's been confirmed. Apparently, there is a recent study that shows that a lot of girls and guys who are addicted to facebook (I'm sure you have at least one friend who is like this) have low self-esteem.
According to the study
"Facebook provides an ideal setting for narcissists to monitor their appearance and how many ‘friends’ they have, the study said, as it allows them to thrive on ‘shallow’ relationships while avoiding genuine warmth and empathy".
The main take-a-way from all this is that we need deep relationships, with real people. Technology is not a substitute for a live person. That is you should value yourself, because it will help you have deeper, more fulfilling relationships with people. And I hope you have or are on your way to having a great set of friends, who can encourage you but keep you from getting too full of yourself (I know mine do!)
You were made to be in relationships with people. Maybe you do have a lot of friends, but your relationships with those people are pretty shallow. This week, I encourage you to dig deeper. It will be risky, but it will be worth it. We all want deep relationships.
The Bad Girls have all the fun right? At least the world makes it look that way. You can't look at the TV for 10 seconds without some larger than life image of a woman popping out at you.
I remember being in high school. It seemed that the loud mouth girls, the bad girls always got the guys and the attention. Which made me and some of my friends feel we weren't good enough. It seemed like were were nothing special, and that we were just average.
Have you ever felt that way? Sometimes, I tried to overdo it just to stand out. I was a really good athlete, and captain of the team, so I played really hard. Every now and the I would switch-up my look by changing my hair or wearing a "sexier" outfit. But there were just some things I wasn't willing to do, and it never seemed to be enough.
Now, I know that the fleeting attention I was seeking back then, was really shallow and in the long run meant nothing. In fact, I'm so glad that I didn't do have the things I thought about doing just to be noticed by people. Now, I know the power of a gentle and quiet spirit...Read More on Having A Gentle and Quiet Spirit
Feeling Insignificant? Well then you're God's choice!
You have probably made have a mistakes at some point in your life. It's ok, we all have. But you can't let that stop you. Other people may have hurt you, but you can't let that stop you either. When everything around you is crumbling, what can you hold onto? Where do you get your sense of worth from when you "fail" sometimes? No matter what anybody tells you, you are important to God.
