Media is consistently promoting a certain lifestyle

This preview shows page 1 - 2 out of 2 pages.

media is consistently promoting a certain lifestyle or body shape, which many young adults cant obtain. It starts affecting their self-esteem which affects their mental health because they feel like they can't show their true selves without being criticized. From a personal perspective I agree with the statistics. I have experienced bullying during school before and it made me really hate going to school. I ended up getting into a habit of not going to class, it still affects me to this day. I can’t go into public places by myself because I will get really bad anxiety. Social media has also had an affect on me. I've had social media accounts since I was in middle school. Seeing the “ideal” lifestyle and body all over the internet had a pretty bad affect on my self-esteem. It took me a few years to build myself back up and accept that my life is perfect as is, but I'm lucky enough to be able to say that I've grown from it and didn't let it get to me as badly as others have.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
