TikTok damaged my mental health so badly, thank god I quit.

Entertainment source has shifted popularity from traditional TV media to internet/social media where the viewing audience are viewing these creators more personally than celebrities. It is just as psychologically damning towards social media creators, and that's the cost of being part of the entertainment industry is being open to mass public viewership.

News touching on this topic is important because this is the new generation we are seeing growing up in America facing these problems. A lot of these comments are quick to invalidate and criticize these people who are so impactful towards our youth today. People are thinking it's lame that they are complaining about their job, but it's still hard work and a skill trade that many people wouldn't success into making it as a career path.

The 17 year old girl has a mass audience of 9 million followers. Hate the system of tiktok but don't hate the kid for trying because that is a lot of pressure on her.

Those who are calling out narcissism are diluting the meaning of that word.

But actually that’s what YouTube are doing to creators

2gointruth With Good News of The True Gospel October 26, 2021 - 1:07 PM

The way to eternal life “Always treat others as you would like them to treat you.” And “Love your neighbour as yourself.” That is the Law and the Prophets.

Avoid all religions (even that of the pope and Christianity) because religions are all led by the many blind guides and false prophets that Jesus had already warned us to beware of, almost 2,000 years ago. They all make up their own false laws and prayers. When he alone (In the name of Immanuel) is the Son of Man and the true Prophet who was sent by the Lord God, to be always our one Teacher and to set us free from all religions…

These are the words of the Lord God:
“I will raise up for them a prophet like you [Moses] from among their fellow Israelites, and I will put my words in his mouth.” – (at Deuteronomy 18: 18) –

“Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign: A young woman is with child, and she will bear a son, and will call him Immanuel.” [“God is with us”] – (The Prophet Isaiah 7: 14) –

“If you have ears to hear, then hear.” – (Jesus, in the name of Immanuel, the Messiah, at Mark 4: 23) –

“God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.” – (at John 4: 24) –

“In truth I tell you, anyone who gives heed to what I say and puts his trust in him who sent me, has hold of eternal life and does not come up for judgement, but has already passed from death to life.” – (at John 5: 24) –

“Beware of false prophets, men who come to you dressed up as sheep while underneath they are savage wolves. You will recognize them by the fruits they bear.” – (at Matthew 7: 15-16) –

“Do not call any man on earth ‘father’; for you have one Father and he is in heaven. Nor must you be called ‘teacher’; you have one Teacher, the Messiah.” – (Matthew 23: 9-10) –

“Take care that no one misleads you: For many will come claiming my name…” – (Jesus, at Matthew 24: 4) –
“Many false prophets will arise, and will mislead many; and as lawlessness spreads, men’s love for one another will grow cold. But the man who holds out to the end will be saved. And this gospel of the Kingdom will be proclaimed throughout the earth as a testimony to all nations; and then the end will come.” – (Matthew 24: 11-14) –

“You shall know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” – (John 8: 32) –

“When you pray, go into a room by yourself, and shut the door. Pray to your Father who is there in the secret place; and your Father who sees what is secret will reward you.
In your prayers do not go babbling on like the heathen, who imagine that the more they say the more likely they are to be heard.
Do not imitate them. Your Father knows what your needs are before you ask him.
This is how you should pray:
Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name,
Your kingdom come; your will be done, on earth as in heaven,
Give us today our daily bread,
Forgive us the wrong we have done, as we have forgiven those who have wronged us.
And do not bring us to the test, but save us from the evil one.
For yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory, for ever.
Amen.
For if you forgive others the wrongs they have done, your heavenly Father will also forgive you; but if you do not forgive others, then the wrongs you have done will not be forgiven by your Father.” – (at Matthew 6: 6-15) –

“Pass no judgement, and you will not be judged. For as you judge others, so you will yourselves be judged, and whatever measure you deal out to others will be dealt back to you.” – (Matthew 7: 1-2) –

“Truly I tell you; if anyone obeys my teaching he shall never know what it is to die.” – (John 8: 51) –

“Always treat others as you would like them to treat you: that is the Law and the Prophets.
Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life and only a few find it.” – (Matthew 7: 12-14) –

“I am the gate; anyone who comes into the fold through me shall be safe. He shall go in and out and shall find pasturage.
The thief comes only to steal, to kill, to destroy; I have come that men may have life, and may have it in all its fullness.” – (John 10: 9-10) –

“I am the resurrection and I am life. If a man has faith in me, even though he dies, he shall come to life; and anyone who is alive and has faith shall never die.” – (John 11: 25-26) –

“I have not come to judge the world, but to save the world” – (John 12: 47) –
“Whoever will acknowledge me before men, I will acknowledge him before my Father in heaven; and whoever disowns me before men, I will disown him before my Father in heaven.” – (Matthew 10: 32-34) –

“I am the way; I am the truth and I am life; no one comes to the Father except by me. If you knew me you would know my Father too.” – (John 14: 6-7) –

“Any plant that is not of my heavenly Father’s planting will be rooted up. Leave them alone; they are blind guides, and if one blind man guides another they will both fall into the ditch.” – (Matthew 15: 13-14) –

“The disciples came to Jesus and asked, ‘Who is the greatest in the kingdom of Heaven?’
He called a child, set him in front of them, and said, ‘I tell you this: unless you turn round and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of Heaven.
Let a man humble himself till he is like this child, and he will be the greatest in the kingdom of Heaven. Whoever receives one such child in my name receives me. But if a man is a cause of stumbling to one of these little ones who have faith in me, it would be better for him to have a millstone hung round his neck and be drowned in the depths of the sea.
Alas for the world that such causes of stumbling arise! Come they must, but woe betide the man through who they come!’” – (Matthew 18: 1-7) –

“Though many are called, few are chosen.” – (Matthew 22: 14) –

“An expert in the law, [a leading religious Pharisee] tested him with this question: ‘Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?’ He answered, ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind. That is the greatest commandment. It comes first. The second is like it: Love your neighbour as yourself. Everything in the Law and the Prophets hangs on these two commandments.’” – (Matthew 22: 35-40) –

“There is no greater love than this, that a man should lay down his life for his friends.” – (John 15: 13) –

"Stay awake, and pray that you may be spared the test: The spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak." – (Matthew 26: 41) –
“However, when he comes who is the Spirit of truth; he will guide you into all the truth.” – (John 16: 13) –

“Teach them to observe all that I have commanded you. And be assured, I am with you always, to the end of time.” – (Matthew 28: 20)

Yours, in true Spirit and in our one given prayer, 2gointruth, on Tuesday the 26th of October, 2021: – (Matthew 5: 14-16) – Where every minute (of both day and night) can be a new beginning for any one of us. Let it always be you. Pray to God often, as prescribed above, before it is too late.

“Life is God's gift to us…. What we DO with it, is our gift to God.”

– Bushido: Rising Sun (144 Lust for Life)

Thomas said… “Lord, we don’t know where you are going, so how can we know the way?”

"Jesus saith unto him, I am THE WAY, THE TRUTH, AND THE LIFE! No man comes to the Father, but by ME!"

"If ye had known me, ye should have known my Father also: and from henceforth you know him, and HAVE seen him 😎."

"Do you not believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in Me? The words I say to you, I do not speak on My own. Instead, it is the Father dwelling IN Me, performing HIS works."

"Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works' sake."

"Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and GREATER works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father."

"And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be GLORIFIED in the Son."

"If you love me… KEEP MY  COMMANDMENTS!"

"I will ask the Father, and He will give you another Helper, so that He may be with you FOREVER."

"Even the Spirit of Truth; who the world cannot receive, because it sees him not, neither knows him: but YOU know him; for he dwells with you, and shall be in you."

"Yet a little while, and the world will see me no more; but you see me: because I live, ye shall live also."

"At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and you in me, and I in you."

"He that hath my Commandments, and KEEPS them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will MANIFEST myself to him!"

"These things have I spoken unto you, being still present with you."

"But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you ALL things, and bring ALL things to your remembrance, whatever I have said unto you."

"Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let NOT your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid!"

"Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come again unto you. If ye loved me, ye would REJOICE, because I said, I go unto the Father: for my Father is GREATER than I."

"And now I have told you BEFORE it comes to pass, that, when it has come to pass, you might… BELIEVE!!!"

"I cannot talk with you much longer, because the ruler of this world (Satan) is coming. He has NO power over me."

Revelation 12:12
"Therefore REJOICE, Heavens, and you who dwell in them. WOE to the Earth and to the sea, because the Devil has gone down to you, having GREAT WRATH, knowing that he has but a SHORT time!!!"

So…it’s a job…like a real job that requires time and effort? Hmm 🤔 I hate how people act like it’s “just social media.” It can suck, create anxiety and burnout just like any career. Nothing special or different.
