A session typically lasts 60 minutes, every 2 weeks, but will be catered to your individual need. Facebook, like most social media platforms, are a popular outlet for many to connect with friends, co-workers and old acquaintances.
As a therapist, I have seen how Facebook and other forms of social media have unintentionally caused some clients to call into a caustic pattern that brings about feelings of confusion, sadness and anger. What follows are 5 tips for interacting with others on Facebook and other social media platforms that promotes good mental health. You can realize that you are having “a moment of curiosity” and then take a few deep breaths or practice a mindfulness exercise (sensory focus meditation, walking, journaling, etc.) until the moment passes. This can be really helpful in avoiding the negative feelings that come with seeing information about your ex!
Though many (if not all) of us are guilty of having done this at one time or another, Facebook is not the best primary source for getting your appropriate needs for validation met. Go to loved ones, partners, family members, best friends, and those you trust before looking for any validation from the grouping of “friends” in your Facebook social system.
As is the case in any written form of communication where the other person is not directly present in front of you (texts, emails, tweets, etc.), there is some likelihood that the writer’s intention will not be understood by the reader.
Thus, much written communication will be misconstrued as negative, critical or even mean-spirited, and then will be internalized by the reader.
Due to this trend, it is important to resist the instinct to internalize possibly negative comments too quickly, until you better understand the writer’s intention and the possibility that you may have misread the writer’s tone. Hopefully, one way or another, any issues will be smoothed out without you being upset and without all of your friend network seeing a dramatic, unnecessary spat playing out on your Facebook wall. Some people use Facebook as a forum for airing their most personal inner thoughts and feelings.
Even if your Facebook privacy settings are set for private, employers and other agencies may be able to access this information and it may come back to haunt you. Lastly, make sure that you have the systems in place in your life to meet your valid relational needs.  Everyone needs to spend time connecting and socializing with friends.
The value of the relational time spent meeting with friends in person and being heard, validated, and bonding cannot be replicated by social media, no matter how clever the technology behind the social network system is.
Human interaction in the traditional, face to face sense, is important for the promotion and maintenance of good mental health. Though Facebook is a wonderful tool for checking in with old friends and networking with people across different groups, as well as for making social plans, and remembering important life events like birthdays and anniversaries, Facebook has its limits. True quality socialization and friendship is outside the scope of Facebook, so do not try to use it as a substitute for such.
It was just after 9am when we arrived at Khao Yai and there was already quite a crowd there.


The scenery around Life Park is quite pleasant and the area is large enough so that it does not feel crowded. It helps people evaluate and acknowledge where they are right now – and, above all, where they want to go. She has proven to be committed to helping me find the path I want to follow in my life, both at a personal and professional level.
She is very professional, she does not judge and I get a feeling that she adapts well to people and situations. Though this action may seem unavoidable (or inevitable) at times, especially when you are in the early stages of recovering from the loss of a relationship, you still do have other choices.
There is also the choice of unsubscribing from the person’s Facebook profile, so that you do not have to view their updates appearing on your newsfeed.
You can also use this technique to avoid having to read about and see updates about other people in your friend network who bother you but who you don’t feel the need to unfriend, for whatever reason. We all have accomplishments that we may feel proud of and want to tell people of but make sure to reach out towards your closest supports for this need, first and foremost. This way you avoid the scenario where you proudly post about a recent accomplishment, just to end up feeling sad and angry when an unexpectedly small amount of people “like” your status or take the time to comment on it.  Or worse yet, you get snarky or unsatisfying comments from people who you don’t want to hear from. I know of a man who posted a picture of himself almost completely naked, showing off a well-sculpted body but standing in a canoe, and his post focused on how he “enjoyed his first canoe trip.” Nobody who saw this post, including all those who commented on the post, believed this guy’s stated intention in his post. This is because the written form of communication being used does not account well for the writer’s tone and other nuanced forms of non-verbal communication. This is an inherent risk of Facebook and, truly, of all forms of communication outside of in-person discussion and telephone conversations (or FaceTime and Skype conversations). If, after some time of exploration (I often recommend waiting 24 hours), you are still unsure about the writer’s intention, then reach out to the writer directly back-channel (through private email or text or phone call that will not be viewed by everyone in Facebook comments). Examples of this include the Facebook user who frequently posts about their inner mood, such as how depressed or angry they feel on difficult day, and who leaves provocative emotional posts, that appear designed to garner attention and sympathy from Facebook friends. We are wired to interact with others in a physical way, meaning the use of all five senses.
I don’t know what it is about this first day of the year, but I always like to visit somewhere outdoors. It is right next to the Greenery Hotel not far from the Thanarat Road entrance to Khao Yai National Park.
Timmy felt a bit nervous at first but he started to really enjoy himself near the end of the ride. This is an area full of slides and inflatable structures that kids can crawl up and down on. Hope it will help turn the page on what sounded like a pretty rotten flood-related experience!


This includes what is and isn’t working in their lives, and how best to get what they really want. There are, however, ways in which Facebook can cause more harm than good, particularly when it comes to mental health. You can practice discipline by resisting the compulsive urge to look up profiles that lead to a high likelihood of feelings of jealousy, sadness, regret, anger or rage.
If you use social media as a singular source for boosting your self-esteem, you run the risk of alienating others and causing them to think you are narcissistic. The underlying need for validation was obvious, so don’t try and hide it in a ridiculous fashion.
This sort of behavior is not appropriate for a semi-public social network site like Facebook. But do not post this on your Facebook wall, as you will only risk causing yourself more potential emotional harm.
While social media can certainly help to fill in certain gaps, it cannot replace the real thing. There was no admission fee but instead you need to buy tickets for whatever rides you wish to go on.
They looked quite fun but they weren’t exciting enough for my son – perhaps we should have taken him here before the cars. The boats move around a pool that is fairly small so I’d imagine that it can be chaotic when it gets busy. I’ve been fooled by false advertisements on the web too many times before so I wasn’t really expecting much. We bought a 450 THB ticket that allowed Timmy to go on 5 rides; there are other more expensive tickets that allow for more rides.
He was only allowed ten minutes in the car and this felt an unreasonably short amount of time.
The woman behind the counter even said that we could leave and come back again later if we wanted.
I just hoped that it would be interesting enough to keep a four year old boy happy for a couple of hours.
Many of the Bangkokonians view it as an opportunity to wear their winter clothing even though it isn’t much cooler than Bangkok – even first thing in the morning the temperature was still 25 degrees Celsius.
