  • The number of American teens with depressed thoughts has been increasing since 2012.
  • Looking at the data, it's possible to rule out some factors that might be causing it, like economic inequality and academic pressure.
  • Jean Twenge, author of "iGen," believes all signs point to increased smartphone use as the likely cause.
  • Twenge says it's not necessarily the screen time but the time that's lost to smartphones that could be spent on more meaningful activities, like face-to-face interaction.

Around 2012, something started going wrong in the lives of teens.

In just the five years between 2010 and 2015, the number of U.S. teens who felt useless and joyless – classic symptoms of depression – surged 33 percent in large national surveys. Teen suicide attempts increased 23 percent. Even more troubling, the number of 13- to 18-year-olds who committed suicide jumped 31 percent.

In a new paper published in Clinical Psychological Science, my colleagues and I found that the increases in depression, suicide attempts and suicide appeared among teens from every background – more privileged and less privileged, across all races and ethnicities and in every region of the country.

All told, our analysis found that the generation of teens I call "iGen" – those born after 1995 – is much more likely to experience mental health issues than their millennial predecessors.

What happened so that so many more teens, in such a short period of time, would feel depressed, attempt suicide and commit suicide?

      It has been one week since U.S. border officials denied entry to a 17-year-old Harvard freshman just days before classes were set to begin.
      Ismail Ajjawi, a Palestinian student living in Lebanon, had his student visa canceled and was put on a flight home shortly after arriving at Boston Logan International Airport. Customs & Border Protection officers searched his phone and decided he was ineligible for entry because of his friends’ social media posts. Ajjawi told the officers he “should not be held responsible” for others’ posts, but it was not enough for him to clear the border.
      The news prompted outcry and fury. But TechCrunch has learned it was not an isolated case.
      Since our story broke, we came across another case of a U.S. visa holder who was denied entry to the country on grounds that he was sent a graphic WhatsApp message. Dakhil — whose name we have changed to protect his identity — was detained for hours, but subsequently had his visa canceled. He was sent back to Pakistan and banned from entering the U.S. for five years.

      As more and more people discuss mental health issues in public forums, it seems to be lifting some of the stigma surrounding the topic. New research reveals that the number of students seeking help for mental health problems has risen considerably between 2009 and 2015.
      Anxiety, depression, and panic attacks are on the rise among U.S. college students, suggests a new study.
      Sara Oswalt, from the University of Texas at San Antonio, is the lead author of the new study, which was published in the Journal of American College Health.
      According to estimates that the scientists cite, around 26 percent of people aged 18 and above in the United States live with a mental health condition in any given year.

      Forums, like email, is one of those "killer applications" that made the Internet so powerful. Social media came along and it appeared that forums would be pushed aside as "old technology" like IRC chat etc...
      Using the more modern forums though, such as this one, is a different experience than the forums 1.0 of the past.
      Videos can now easily be embedded with just a click (just like Facebook and Twitter) and there are even more options for editing text than possible on FB currently.
      Images are very easily shareable now on forums compared to previous years.
      I will posit that social media made forum 1.0 technology to innovate and keep up. 
      Going forward people may soon remember how refreshing categories and topics can be versus the firehose of information people typically get on a FB newsfeed which their algorithims select what you see. (think big brother 2.0)
      There is also the possibility of allowing people to talk about things they don't want thier real names attached to. The USA was started in part due to "anonymous free speech". At times it is necessary. Granted, Twitter offers this already but forums had this 25 years ago and still do.
      Forums like this one are also innovating with ideas on how to learn more from social media's success with such things as status updates etc...
      Will we someday see the resurgence of massive forums where information is exchanged without a nauseating newsfeed?
      Enjoy!

      Ok folks. Just so you know. You'll see less JW's on YouTube, Facebook, Twitter etc... and maybe even forums like these due to the new edict from the Governing Body directing all JW's to stay off of the Internet again.
      I say again because they only recently lifted their Internet ban when they launched jw.org....
      Well folks... it's back on!
      Which websites other than jw.org do you think JW's will still use?  I suspect Netflix will still be used.

      Nearly 80 genes that could be linked to depression have been discovered by scientists.
      The findings could help explain why some people may be at a higher risk of developing the condition, researchers say.
      The study could also help researchers develop drugs to tackle mental ill-health, experts say.
      Depression affects one in five people in the UK every year and is the leading cause of disability worldwide. Life events - such as trauma or stress - can contribute to its onset, but it is not clear why some people are more likely to develop the condition than others.
      Scientists led by the University of Edinburgh analysed data from UK Biobank - a research resource containing health and genetic information for half a million people.
      They scanned the genetic code of 300,000 people to identify areas of DNA that could be linked to depression.
      Some of the pinpointed genes are known to be involved in the function of synapses, tiny connectors that allow brain cells to communicate with each other through electrical and chemical signals.

      A new study of dysfunctional use of smart technology finds that the most addictive smartphone functions all share a common theme: they tap into the human desire to connect with other people. The findings, published in Frontiers in Psychology, suggest that smartphone addiction could be hyper-social, not anti-social.
      "There is a lot of panic surrounding this topic," says Professor Samuel Veissière, from the Department of Psychiatry at McGill University, Canada. "We're trying to offer some good news and show that it is our desire for human interaction that is addictive -- and there are fairly simple solutions to deal with this."
      We all know people who, seemingly incapable of living without the bright screen of their phone for more than a few minutes, are constantly texting and checking out what friends are up to on social media.

      Chester Bennington's widow says that she was "completely surprised" by her husband's passing, explaining that she believed Chris Cornell's death only two months earlier would serve as a deterrent against suicide to the LINKIN PARK singer.
      Chester was found dead on July 20, 2017 — on what would have been the 53rd birthday of his late friend and fellow rocker, SOUNDGARDEN frontman Chris Cornell.
      After Cornell died in May 2017 as a result of suicide by hanging himself inside his Detroit hotel room, Chester wrote a letter thanking him for inspiring him and hoping he would find peace in "the next life."
      On Wednesday (January 31), Talinda Bennington touched upon her tragic loss during an appearance at the Canadian Event Safety Summit, where she spoke with Anna Shinoda(wife of Mike Shinoda, who is also in LINKIN PARK) and Jim Digby (LINKIN PARK's production manager). The event focused on mental illness in the music industry, but much of the panel's discussion centered on life after Chester's death.
      Talinda, who married Chester in 2005 and had three kids with the late singer, said (see video below): "[Chester and I] were both very emotionally unhealthy in our own different ways, and over our time together — we were together for 12 and a half years — we both grew. He struggled with addiction and depression, two things that I've never struggled with. Although I do have my own demons, I did have my hardships growing up, we just handled them in very different ways. So I came from a point of complete — for lack of a better term — ignorance to his situation. But over time, I came to learn that taking care of your mental health is as important as your physical health."

      At an office for Healthy Minds in High Wycombe, England, psychological well-being practitioners perform hourlong evaluations over the phone to decide what type of therapy is most appropriate for people who call asking for help. CreditAndrew Testa for The New York Times
       
      LONDON — England is in the midst of a unique national experiment, the world’s most ambitious effort to treat depression, anxiety and other common mental illnesses.
      The rapidly growing initiative, which has gotten little publicity outside the country, offers virtually open-ended talk therapy free of charge at clinics throughout the country: in remote farming villages, industrial suburbs, isolated immigrant communities and high-end enclaves. The goal is to eventually create a system of primary care for mental health not just for England but for all of Britain.
      At a time when many nations are debating large-scale reforms to mental health care, researchers and policy makers are looking hard at England’s experience, sizing up both its popularity and its limitations. Mental health care systems vary widely across the Western world, but none have gone nearly so far to provide open-ended access to talk therapies backed by hard evidence. Experts say the English program is the first broad real-world test of treatments that have been studied mostly in carefully controlled lab conditions.

      I would take the lessons learned from social media about smooth and fast functionality.
      Users don't want to have to title a photo.... maybe they just want to post it?  
       
      Comments need not be in some big box...with a huge profile photo next to each comment..... A link on their username is sufficient to lead to their profile page.
      I would also make them "real-time" / "threaded" and "super-fast"  (basically showing when someone else is typing.... thereby keeping people online to wait for someone replying.
       
      Some would reply that forum comments are "for the ages" and are somehow written "in stone" compared to social media..... (Baloney!!)
      I can go back to posts on FB from 10 years ago and read comments the same way we do on forums.
      OH... and these new comment systems can be made SEO friendly.    (Check out rt.com commenting system for example)
       
      Video and audio chat are just add ons... for those companies trying to become infrastructure contenders.
       
      One key component why forums aren't advancing against social media are the investment in apps by forums in general.
      So basically... once all the above is done... AND THEN also offered in an APP... then I think forums would start to dominate again over time.
       
      I should also add a comment about video as well.
      Modern users of social media want to upload video directly to their "site" and have it play...
      They don't want to worry about format.
      They don't want it to be just a link for others to potentially play.
       
      Facebook is now a VIDEO first company. Guess where the masses of people are spending their time as well?  Seen YouTube.com lately?
      Forums could/should try to take on this area as well. We have the advantage of better organization. 
       
      Google would not be able to relegate forum traffic to "internet drivel" as they like to currently. They would be forced to link to where the video is hosted. And in this case it would be on our forums and not on their YouTube.com

      It’s common for people who suffer from irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) to also struggle with depression. Now, a small study published in the journal Gastroenterology suggests that taking a probiotic supplement may provide relief from both conditions.
      The randomized, placebo-controlled trial shows a connection between probiotics and mood improvement in people with IBS and depression or anxiety, as well as changes in brain regions related to emotional processing. Most previous research on this topic has been on healthy people without mood disorders.
      For the new research, scientists from McMaster University in Canada recruited 44 adults with IBS as well as mild to moderate anxiety or depression. They were followed for 10 weeks; half took a daily dose of the probiotic Bifidobacteriumlongum, and half took a placebo. The probiotics were manufactured and provided by Nestle, which also funded the study. (Nestle was not involved in collection, analysis or interpretation of study data.)

      Dopaminergic neurons are located in the midbrain structures substantia nigra (SNc) and the ventral tegmental area (VTA). Their axons project to the striatum (caudate nucleus, putamen and ventral striatum including nucleus accumbens), the dorsal and ventral prefrontal cortex. (Credit: Oscar Arias-Carrión et al.)
      People who frequently check Facebook on their smartphone tend to have less gray matter in a reward-related area of the brain, according to new research.
      “Smartphones, Facebook – in short the digital world – is a major part of our lives,” the study’s corresponding author, Christian Montag of Ulm University, told PsyPost. “A better neuroscientific understanding of digital usage is of importance to also understand how our brains react and are shaped by digital societies.”
      The study was published online April 22 in the peer-reviewed journal Behavioural Brain Research.
      The researchers recruited 46 men and 39 women, and used magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans to examine the structure of their brain. Then, the researchers installed an app on the participants’ phones to record how long they spent on Facebook and how often they checked Facebook every day for five weeks.
      Montag and his colleagues were particularly interested in the nucleus accumbens, a small structure located deep in the center of the brain. The nucleus accumbens is a core region of the mesocorticolimbic dopaminergic system, which plays an important role in addiction.
      The researchers found that participants who opened the Facebook app more frequently and those who stayed on Facebook longer tended to have reduced gray matter volume in the nucleus accumbens.
      “We were able to demonstrate that the nucleus accumbens, a central region of the SEEKING system — others call it the reward system — plays an important role in understanding Facebook usage on smartphones,” Montag said. “In short, the lower the gray matter volume in this area, the higher Facebook usage/frequency could be observed.”
      “Indeed, frequency of Facebook checking can be compared to an energetic SEEKING activity,” the researchers wrote in the study, “whereas the users of the smartphones are checking their Facebook account in expectation of ‘Likes’, nice comments, etc.”
      Does less gray matter in the nucleus accumbens lead to more Facebook use or does using Facebook lead to less gray matter? Because the study was cross-sectional, the researchers could not determine cause and effect.
      “We do not know from the present data if low volumes in this area are a cause or consequence of Facebook usage. Therefore longitudinal studies are needed,” Montag explained to PsyPost.
      “The present study investigated health young participants with ‘normal’ smartphone usage. Future research will show if excessive usage (which we did not investigate) could represent a behavioral addiction.”
      The study, “Facebook usage on smartphones and gray matter volume of the nucleus accumbens“, was also co-authored by Alexander Markowetz, Konrad Blaszkiewicz, Ionut Andone, Bernd Lachmann, Rayna Sariyska, Boris Trendafilov, Mark Eibes, Julia Kolb, Martin Reuter Bernd Weber and Sebastian Markett.

      Young people who spend a lot of time on social media — websites designed to bring people together — seem to be more isolated, new research suggests.
      Ironically, the researchers found that the heaviest users of social media had about twice the odds of feeling socially isolated compared to their less “web-connected” friends.
      The findings “remind us that social media is not a panacea for people who feel socially isolated,” said study lead author Dr. Brian Primack. He’s director of the University of Pittsburgh’s Center for Research on Media, Technology, and Health.
      Primack said past research has suggested that people who use social media the most are especially isolated. But those studies have been small, he noted.
      The new study is the first analysis of social media use and so-called social isolation in a large group of people from across the United States, according to Primack.
      But, at least one social media expert said the study leaves too many questions unanswered to offer people any practical advice.
      The study included nearly 1,800 people aged 19 to 32. The participants completed a 20-minute online questionnaire in 2014. Half were female and 58 percent were white. More than one-third made at least $75,000 a year. The participants, who’d taken part in research before, received $15 each for the survey.
      Researchers asked questions about how isolated the participants felt and how often they used Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus, YouTube, LinkedIn, Instagram, Pinterest, Tumblr, Vine, Snapchat and Reddit.
      Those who used the services more often — either in terms of the number of times they used them or in total amount of time spent on them — were more likely to report feeling isolated from other people, the investigators found.
      “Compared with those in the lowest quarter for frequently checking social media, people in the top quarter were about three times as likely to have increased social isolation,” Primack said. Those who checked the least visited social media sites less than nine times a week. Those who checked the most visited social media sites 58 or more times a week, the study authors said.
      The average time spent on social media was 61 minutes a day. People who spent more than 121 minutes a day on social media had about twice the odds of feeling isolated than those spending less than 30 minutes a day on these sites, the findings showed.
      The authors noted that the study had limitations. One is that it wasn’t designed to prove a cause-and-effect relationship. And, it’s not clear which came first — the social media use or the feelings of isolation, according to the researchers.
      In addition, the study only looked at people aged 32 and under, so the findings may not be the same in older people.
      Primack also pointed out that the study examined people’s use of social media as a whole, not specific sites. There’s no way to know if people who read glowing posts about their friends’ perfect vacations on Facebook are more or less isolated than those who prefer to watch YouTube videos of cats or bitterly argue about politics on Twitter.
      If there’s a link between social media use and isolation, what may be going on? “It may be that people who feel more socially isolated use a lot of social media to try to increase their social circles,” Primack suggested.
      “But both directions may be at work. People who feel socially isolated may reach out on social media to ‘self-medicate,’ but this may only serve to increase perceptions of social isolation,” he added.
      The findings suggest that people who feel isolated may generally be unable to find a connection through social media, Primack said.
      The answer may be going offline, he said.
      “A much more valuable and robust way to deal with perceived social isolation would probably be to nurture true in-person social relationships,” Primack said. “Of course, social media remains a potentially powerful tool to help leverage those relationships. However, it is probably not such a strong replacement in and of itself.”
      Anatoliy Gruzd is an associate professor at Ryerson University in Toronto who studies social media. Gruzd said the study is too limited and “cannot be reliably used to generate practical advice about isolation and social media use. There are still many unanswered questions and untested variables.”
      For example, “being active on Facebook may indicate one type of behavior, while being active on something like Snapchat might indicate a very different type of behavior,” he said.
      “The study also does not account for the level and type of participation in social media. For example, one can spend hours on Facebook just to browse pictures posted by others, while another person may be using the same amount of time to actively post and connect with others on Twitter,” Gruzd noted.
      The study was published in the March 6 issue of the American Journal of Preventive Medicine.

      Summary:
      One in five young people regularly wake up in the night to send or check messages on social media, according to new research. This night-time activity is making teenagers three times more likely to feel constantly tired at school than their peers who do not log on at night, and could be affecting their happiness and wellbeing.
      1 in 5 young people regularly wake up in the night to send or check messages on social media, according to new research published today in the Journal of Youth Studies. This night-time activity is making teenagers three times more likely to feel constantly tired at school than their peers who do not log on at night, and could be affecting their happiness and wellbeing.
      Over 900 pupils, aged between 12-15 years, were recruited and asked to complete a questionnaire about how often they woke up at night to use social media and times of going to bed and waking. They were also asked about how happy they were with various aspects of their life including school life, friendships and appearance.
      1 in 5 reported 'almost always' waking up to log on, with girls much more likely to access their social media accounts during the night than boys. Those who woke up to use social media nearly every night, or who didn't wake up at a regular time in the morning, were around three times as likely to say they were constantly tired at school compared to their peers who never log on at night or wake up at the same time every day. Moreover, pupils who said they were always tired at school were, on average, significantly less happy than other young people.
      "Our research shows that a small but significant number of children and young people say that they often go to school feeling tired -- and these are the same young people who also have the lowest levels of wellbeing. One in five young people questioned woke up every night and over one third wake-up at least once a week to check for messages. Use of social media appears to be invading the 'sanctuary' of the bedroom." Said author Professor Sally Power, Co-Director (Cardiff) Wales Institute for Social & Economic Research, Data & Methods (WISERD).
      The study findings support growing concerns about young people's night-time use of social media. However, because of the complex range of possible explanations for tiredness at school, further larger studies will be needed before any firm conclusions can be made about the social causes and consequences of sleep deprivation among today's youth.

      Summary:
      Compared with the total time spent on social media, use of multiple platforms is more strongly associated with depression and anxiety among young adults, researchers have found in a national survey. People who report using seven to 11 social media platforms had more than three times the risk of depression and anxiety than their peers who use zero to two platforms, even after adjusting for the total time spent on social media overall.

      Compared with the total time spent on social media, use of multiple platforms is more strongly associated with depression and anxiety among young adults, the University of Pittsburgh Center for Research on Media, Technology and Health (CRMTH) found in a national survey.
      The analysis, published online and scheduled for the April print issue of the journal Computers in Human Behavior, showed that people who report using seven to 11 social media platforms had more than three times the risk of depression and anxiety than their peers who use zero to two platforms, even after adjusting for the total time spent on social media overall.
      "This association is strong enough that clinicians could consider asking their patients with depression and anxiety about multiple platform use and counseling them that this use may be related to their symptoms," said lead author and physician Brian A. Primack, M.D., Ph.D., director of CRMTH and assistant vice chancellor for health and society in Pitt's Schools of the Health Sciences. "While we can't tell from this study whether depressed and anxious people seek out multiple platforms or whether something about using multiple platforms can lead to depression and anxiety, in either case the results are potentially valuable."
      In 2014, Primack and his colleagues sampled 1,787 U.S. adults ages 19 through 32, using an established depression assessment tool and questionnaires to determine social media use.
      The questionnaires asked about the 11 most popular social media platforms at the time: Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, Google Plus, Instagram, Snapchat, Reddit, Tumblr, Pinterest, Vine and LinkedIn.
      Participants who used seven to 11 platforms had 3.1 times the odds of reporting higher levels of depressive symptoms than their counterparts who used zero to two platforms. Those who used the most platforms had 3.3 times the odds of high levels of anxiety symptoms than their peers who used the least number of platforms. The researchers controlled for other factors that may contribute to depression and anxiety, including race, gender, relationship status, household income, education and total time spent on social media.
      Primack, who also is a professor of medicine at Pitt, emphasized that the directionality of the association is unclear.
      "It may be that people who suffer from symptoms of depression or anxiety, or both, tend to subsequently use a broader range of social media outlets. For example, they may be searching out multiple avenues for a setting that feels comfortable and accepting," said Primack. "However, it could also be that trying to maintain a presence on multiple platforms may actually lead to depression and anxiety. More research will be needed to tease that apart."
      Primack and his team propose several hypotheses as to why multi-platform social media use may drive depression and anxiety:
      Multitasking, as would happen when switching between platforms, is known to be related to poor cognitive and mental health outcomes. The distinct set of unwritten rules, cultural assumptions and idiosyncrasies of each platform are increasingly difficult to navigate when the number of platforms used rises, which could lead to negative mood and emotions. There is more opportunity to commit a social media faux pas when using multiple platforms, which can lead to repeated embarrassments. "Understanding the way people are using multiple social media platforms and their experiences within those platforms -- as well as the specific type of depression and anxiety that social media users experience -- are critical next steps," said co-author and psychiatrist César G. Escobar-Viera, M.D., Ph.D., a postdoctoral research associate at Pitt's Health Policy Institute and at CRMTH. "Ultimately, we want this research to help in designing and implementing educational public health interventions that are as personalized as possible."

      Exercise may be an effective treatment for depression and might even help prevent us from becoming depressed in the first place, according to three timely new studies. The studies pool outcomes from past research involving more than a million men and women and, taken together, strongly suggest that regular exercise alters our bodies and brains in ways that make us resistant to despair.
      Scientists have long questioned whether and how physical activity affects mental health. While we know that exercise alters the body, how physical activity affects moods and emotions is less well understood.
      Past studies have sometimes muddied rather than clarified the body and mind connections. Some randomized controlled trials have found that exercise programs, often involving walking, ease symptoms in people with major depression.
      But many of these studies have been relatively small in scale or had other scientific deficiencies. A major 2013 review of studies related to exercise and depression concluded that, based on the evidence then available, it was impossible to say whether exercise improved the condition. Other past reviews similarly have questioned whether the evidence was strong enough to say that exercise could stave off depression.
      A group of global public-health researchers, however, suspected that newer studies and a more rigorous review of the statistical evidence might bolster the case for exercise as a treatment of and block against depression.
      So for the new analyses, they first gathered all of the most recent and best-designed studies about depression and exercise.
      Then, for perhaps the most innovative of the new studies, which was published last month in Preventive Medicine, they focused on whether exercise could help to prevent someone from developing depression.
      The scientists knew that many past studies of that topic had relied on people providing reports about how much they had exercised. We human beings tend to be notoriously unreliable in our memories of past workouts, though.
      So the researchers decided to use only past studies that had objectively measured participants’ aerobic fitness, which will rise or fall depending on whether and how much someone exercises. Participants’ mental health also had to have been determined with standard testing at the start and finish of the studies, and the follow-up time needed to have been at least a year and preferably longer.
      Ultimately, the researchers found several large-scale past studies that met their criteria. Together, they contained data on more than 1,140,000 adult men and women.
      Among these million-plus people, the links between fitness and mental health turned out to be considerable. When the researchers divided the group into thirds, based on how aerobically fit they were, those men and women with the lowest fitness were about 75 percent more likely to have been given diagnoses of depression than the people with the greatest fitness. The men and women in the middle third were almost 25 percent more likely to develop depression than those who were the most fit.
      In a separate study (some of the scientists were involved in each of the reviews), researchers looked at whether exercise might be useful as a treatment for depression. In that analysis, which was published in June in the Journal of Psychiatric Research, they pooled data from 25 past studies in which people with clinically diagnosed depression began some type of exercise program. Each study had to include a control group that did not exercise and be otherwise methodologically sophisticated.
      The pooled results persuasively showed that exercise, especially if it is moderately strenuous, such as brisk walking or jogging, and supervised, so that people complete the entire program, has a “large and significant effect” against depression, the authors wrote. People’s mental health tended to demonstrably improve if they were physically active.
      The final review offers some hints about why. Published in February in Neuroscience and Biobehavioral Reviews, it took on the difficult issue of what happens within our bodies during and after exercise that might affect and improve our moods. The researchers analyzed 20 past studies in which scientists had obtained blood samples from people with major depression before and after they had exercised. The samples on the whole indicated that exercise significantly reduced various markers of inflammation and increased levels of a number of different hormones and other biochemicals that are thought to contribute to brain health.
      But the researchers also caution that most of the physiological studies they reviewed were too small and short-term to allow for firm conclusions about how exercise might change the brain to help fight off gloom.
      Still, the three reviews together make a sturdy case for exercise as a means to bolster mental as well as physical health, said Felipe Barreto Schuch, an exercise scientist at the Centro Universitário La Salle in Canoas, Brazil, who, with Brendon Stubbs, a professor at King’s College in London, was a primary author on all of the reviews.
       
      Many more experiments are still needed to determine the ideal amounts and types of exercise that might help both to prevent and treat depression, Dr. Schuch said.
      But he encouraged anyone feeling overwhelmed by recent events, or just by life, to go for a run or a bike ride. “The main message” of his and his colleagues’ reviews, he said, “is that people need to be active to improve their mental health.”

      The driver of an SUV whose car was left covered in body parts when a suicidal construction worker landed on it after jumping from 53 stories is suing his employers.
      Donna Crockett has filed a suit against Turner Construction accusing them of negligence, strict liability for an ultra-hazardous activity and loss of consortium between spouses.
      She was kept in hospital for 10 hours after electrician Joseph Sabbatino fell 800ft from the $1billion Wilshire Grand Center in Los Angeles onto her vehicle - and says she cannot get over the horrific scene.
      Ms Crockett is now seeking unspecified damages alleging that Turner Construction should have been aware of Sabbatino's condition and were negligent in hiring him.
      Turner Construction have not yet commented on the case.
      Coroner's lieutenant David Smith earlier confirmed that the 36-year-old's death - on only his second day on the job - was suicide.
      Sabbatino's father Vance revealed that his son had a long battle with depression and had been taking medication before his death.
      His devastated wife Melken Sabbatino wrote on Facebook after his tragic death that she was 'thinking about my husband. Missing you.' 
      Authorities found that the married Jehovah's Witness had removed his helmet and had not been wearing a harness before the fall.
      Turner Construction released a statement to say there had been a safety barrier on the 53rd floor to prevents falls, and that the incident had not been work related.
      Around 1,000 employees were given the day off following Sabbatino's death.
      Horrified witnesses described the moment they saw Sabbatino fall to his death and land on a car below.
      James Armstrong III, who had been walking to a nearby bank moments after the fall, said Ms Crockett had been 'hysterical' and waving her hands in the air.
      'It's really taken a toll on me, because right now, I'm not strong and right now I am hurting,' Ms Crockett told KTLA.
      'It was traumatic, it something that I never thought I would have to see.'
      She was taken to hospital after the incident in shock.
      Mel Melcon, an LA Times photographer, was on assignment at the building when he noticed the man's body lying 'off the driver's side of the car.'
      'It sounded like a bag of cement fell off the edge of the building,' he said.
      'No one thought it was a body,' Mr Melcon told his paper. 'We heard no screams.' 
      The vehicle escaped major damage but the rear side panel was splattered with blood, officials said.  
      After Sabbatino's body hit Donna Crockett's car, she got out and saw 'brain and other internal bodily matter splattered across her vehicle and the surrounding scene', CBS reported.
      The suit says Crockett had never before seen a dead body and the experience left her 'shocked, overwhelmed, panicked, distressed and completely distraught.'

      Depression is more than just a fleeting downer. We all have downers but they usually short lived. However, when a downer lasts several weeks, it is likely that a person has clinical depression. One's perception of themselves, others and their environment becomes noticeably negative and it can be very hard for a person to lift themselves out of the mire. Telling them to snap out of it, or that it is temporary often has the reverse effect desired. Often just a very patient listening ear is the best treatment that I've found with friends who suffer from depression. What do you think depression is? How do think it should be viewed? What do you think can help a person recover?

      Frequent social media use is correlated with a higher risk of eating disorders and negative body image, according to a new study based on a survey of young adults conducted by researchers at the University of Pittsburgh. As always, it’s worth noting that correlation doesn’t equal causation, and a number of different explanations are possible – but the findings are certainly food for thought for parents, educators, and healthcare professionals who work with teens and young adults around these issues.T
      The study, titled “The Association between Social Media Use and Eating Concerns among US Young Adults” and published in the Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics,” surveyed 1,765 adults ages 19-32 with questionnaires about their use of social platforms including Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, Google Plus, Instagram, Snapchat, Reddit, Tumblr, Pinterest, Vine and LinkedIn.
      The authors then cross-referenced these results with data gathered by another questionnaire used to determine the risk of eating disorders in individuals, including anorexia, bulimia, and binge eating disorder as well as distorted body image and other types of eating disorder.
      Respondents who spent more time on social media were over twice as likely (2.2 times) to report factors putting them at risk of eating disorders or distorted body image, when compared with respondents who spent less time. Meanwhile, frequency of check-ins were even more closely correlated with these risk factors, with respondents who checked in most often 2.6 times as those who checked in least often to have risk factors.
      The correlation was seen across categories including gender, age, race, and income, suggesting that it is a broad-based phenomenon. However, as noted above it’s unclear whether social media usage is causing eating disorders, or if (for example) people with eating disorders gravitate to social media for emotional support. People with eating disorders may also use social media for a different kind of emotional support, seeking out groups that encourage eating disorders, like the notorious “pro-ana” sites and “thinspo” forums – another scenario where social media works to enable a pre-existing condition.
      Nonetheless, one obvious interpretation is that heavy usage of social media, with its increasingly visual content and emphasis on idealized images, is in fact causing or exacerbating eating disorders.
      On that note lead author Jaime E. Sidani stated: “We’ve long known that exposure to traditional forms of media, such as fashion magazines and television, is associated with the development of disordered eating and body image concerns, likely due to the positive portrayal of ‘thin’ models and celebrities. Social media combines many of the visual aspects of traditional media with the opportunity for social media users to interact and propagate stereotypes that can lead to eating and body image concerns.”

      Joseph Sabbatino leaped to his death from the 53rd story of L.A.'s Wilshire Grand Center on Friday The married 36-year-old, who was taking medication for depression, landed on the hood of a passing car below  Sabbatino was also found to have removed his helmet and had not been wearing a safety harness A Los Angeles County Coroner has now ruled that Sabbatino's tragic death was a suicide; no note has been discovered  Motorist Donna Crockett was hysterical after he landed on her car and said it had 'really taken a toll' on her  A statement from Turner Construction says the death was not a work related incident, indication it may have been a suicide  
       
      An electrician who plunged 53 floors to his death after leaping from the West Coast's highest skyscraper committed suicide, a coroner has ruled.
      Joseph Sabbatino was only on his second day on the job at the construction site of the unfinished, $1billion Wilshire Grand Center when he plummeted 800 feet onto the trunk of a car that was passing below.
      Coroner's Lt. David Smith confirmed today that the 36-year-old's death was a suicide.
      Sabbatino's father Vance revealed that his son had a long battle with depression and had been taking medication before his death.
      His devastated wife Melken Sabbatino wrote on Facebook after his tragic death that she was 'thinking about my husband. Missing you.' 
      Authorities found that the married Jehovah's Witness had removed his helmet and had not been wearing a harness before the fall on Friday- as he was only contracted to work on the lower levels
      Turner Construction has since released a statement to say there had been a safety barrier on the 53rd floor to prevents falls, and that the incident had not been work related. Around 1,000 employees were given the day off following Sabbatino's death.
      Horrified witnesses described the moment they saw Sabbatino fall to his death and land on a car below.
      James Armstrong III had been walking to a nearby bank moments after the fall said motorist Donna Crockett had been 'hysterical' and waving her hands in the air.
      'It's really taken a toll on me, because right now, I'm not strong and right now I am hurting,' Crockett told KTLA. 'It was traumatic, it something that I never thought I would have to see.'
      She was taken to hospital after the incident in shock.
      Mel Melcon, an LA Times photographer, was on assignment at the building when he noticed the man's body lying 'off the driver's side of the car.'
      'It sounded like a bag of cement fell off the edge of the building,' he said.
      'No one thought it was a body,' Melcon told his paper. 'We heard no screams.' 
      The vehicle escaped major damage but the rear side panel was splattered with blood, officials said.  
      'We have confirmed with (California's Division of Occupational Safety and Health and Los Angeles police) that the incident which occurred at the Wilshire Grand project site on March 17 was not work-related,' a statement issued by Turner Construction read.
      Work was shut down Friday and counselors would be on hand for employees, the statement said.
      Ed Winter, assistant chief Los Angeles County Coroner, said as far as he knew, there was no suicide note.
      Winter said the man, a new employee on his second day on the job, died instantly. The investigation will continue. 
      Chris Martin, CEO of Martin Project Management, which is supervising the construction, said there were barricades around the edge of the building and other safety measures in place.
      All of the building's 891 workers had undergone training, Martin said.
      'There's safety training for every worker on the job, and certain locations there's very specialized training. So these are all smart people,' Martin said. 'We had no injuries up to this date.' 
      When asked whether there might have been any electrical work that needed doing near the edge of the building, Martin said there wasn't.
      The paper also reported that there was an eight-foot-high 'integrity fence' in place to keep workers and equipment from falling off the tower.
      No tethering harness was seen on the man's body, although employees are required to wear one when working.
      A construction worker who spoke to the Times on condition of anonymity said that he saw the man's body, and initially thought the woman had run him over. 
      'We asked the driver: 'Did you run this man over?' She said no,' the worker said. 'That's when I knew he had fallen off the building.'
      He added that when he returned to the building he found a hard hat with the dead man's employee number on the 53rd floor.
      Maurice Lopez, who works at the neighboring Bonaventure said he was saddened to hear that someone working on the building he watched go up for years had died.
      That's crazy. Usually when you walk by here, you see the guys up there attached to something,' Lopez, 50, of Los Angeles told the LA Times. 'Now I'm gonna feel sick walking by here.'
      This is the first accident to happen at the location, the Times reported. There were around 850 workers on the site as of last week.  
      The Wilshire Grand Center is located on South Figueroa Street, at one of the busiest intersections in the city. The man's fall resulted in disruption to traffic flow.
      Upon completion, the $1billion skycraper, which has been under construction for two years, will be the tallest building west of the Mississippi. It will reach a height of 73 stories and will be 1,100 feet tall, including a 100-foot spire.
      It is expected to open early 2017. 
      Family and friends paid tribute to the 'sweet' man with a 'good heart' that was always so full of life.
      Susanne Dean wrote on Facebook: 'Joseph was very sweet and made us laugh and we had some good times with him...my boys thought he was so cool to invite them over to play video games and just hang out.
      'He was full of hope and life. That is the Joseph that we will remember.'
      Eric Mutuc added: 'Joseph was a friend of mine when we were children. He had a good heart, and although he may not have ever known it, I loved him like a brother. 
      Jerron Ragan said: 'Rest in peace Joseph Sabbatino. You were always a good friend. I'll miss you.'

      ALLÈGE TOI POUR VIVRE SANS LA LOI
      POUR atteindre la vraie réussite, il faut suivre le meilleur mode de vie qui soit, un mode de vie qui résulte de l’application des normes de Dieu et qui s’accorde avec son dessein concernant les humains. La Bible dit de celui qui fait ce choix : “ Il deviendra comme un arbre planté près de ruisseaux d’eau, qui donne son fruit en son temps et dont le feuillage ne se flétrit pas, et tout ce qu’il fait réussira. ” — Psaume 1:3.
      La maitrise de soi est la première qualité qu'il faut apprendre à développer pour devenir un serviteur de YHWH.
      POUR QU'ELLE RAISON?
      La définition de la  maîtrise de soi est: Qualité qui a pour but de retenir ou dominer notre personne, nos actions, nos paroles, nos pensées. (It 190 chapitre 1)
      Devenir maître de nous même par l'enseignement de notre Dieu et de son Oint, Jésus Christ. LA PAROLE ET LA VIE (Jn 1:1) (Jn 14:6)
      Jésus Christ fut un exemple humain qui a maîtrisé cette qualité très importante pour acquérir sa miséricorde tout au long de sa vie.
      JÉHOVAH FUT TRÈS EXIGENT ENVERS SON FILS. CELA JUSQU'À SA MORT POUR LA RÉDEMPTION DE NOS PÉCHÉS ET POUR DONNER AUX JUSTES DE LA TERRE, LA VIE ÉTERNELLE. (Ps 37:11 ,29)
      COMMENT À T'IL FAIT POUR MAÎTRISER CETTE QUALITÉ JUSQU'À  L' AMOUR?
      GALATE 5 :22 A 23
      22 Par contre, le fruit de l’esprit est amour, joie, paix, patience, bienveillance, bonté, foi,  23 douceur, maîtrise de soi. Contre de telles choses il n’y a pas de loi.  
      Pour atteindre l'Amour de Dieu, il nous faut acquérir, la Maîtrise de Soi.(g 11 /08 p 6-9) (Pr 28:20)
      Maîtrisons notre vie de tout notre être
      Soyons doux envers autrui comme Jéhovah nous aimes (mt 5:5 ) (2tm 2:24)
      Tout ce que nous faisons pour les autres doit être manifesté par la douceur comme envers nous même (mt 11:29)
      Comme le fut pour nous notre Dieu de Miséricorde et de compassion, Jéhovah nous donna la vie dans un lieux magnifique et splendide,(Ps 111:4) b
      Qui est la terre. (Gn 1:26 à 28)
      LE FAIRE nous donneras de la foi, ( RM 10:17) (Ps 1:2)
      Soyons fidèle à son enseignement, ferme, obéissant et intègre à ses connaissances qu'il nous a révélé, (1cor 15:58)(1cor 16:13,14)(Ex 19:5)(Dt 11:13)(Dt 18:13)(Ps41:12)(Ps119:1)
      ainsi notre foi pourra déplacer les montagnes, les obstacles de notre vie qui peuvent être très difficile à surmonter. (Jn14:6)(Mt17:20)
      C'est par la foi et les oeuvres d'annoncer le royaume que nous apprenons à atteindre la connaissance exacte.(Mt6:33) (RM 10:9,10)
      Soyons généreux envers autrui pour que nous puissions avoir de la bonté de coeur, DE NOTRE DIEU.(Pr 28 :27)
      Sa bonté de coeur est sans limite, regardons toute autour de nous, tout ce que YHWH a témoingné par sa création (Ps 100:05)
      À tout l'humanité et à tout l'univers et tout ce qui se meut sur la terre entière.
      La bonté est le reflet de notre Dieu car tout viens de son Coeur qui fut construit entièrement par l'Amour. (Deut 15 :10,11)
      Suivre son exemple, ainsi acquérir la vertue de la bonté, et exprimer par nos actions, la bonté de coeur:
      Donner sans demander, donner s'en attendre à recevoir. (Act 20:35)
      Agissons Comme Jéhovah a créé toutes choses  pour le donner à tout les justes de la terre. (Ps 37 :29)
      PAR NOS ACTIONS DE BONTÉ DE COEUR TOUT CE QUE TU AURAS DONNÉ SANS DEMANDER JEHOVAH TE DONNERA UN CADEAU inestimable 
      QUE PERSONNE PEUT TE DONNER. Celui du cadeau de LA VIE ÉTERNELLE. (MC 10: 29,30) (Mt 19:27-29)
      Jéhovah est un Dieu généreux, tout ce que nous faisons pour Lui, pour le bien, Jéhovah nous le rendra au centuple et protègera notre vie tout au long du jour.
      APRÈS AVOIR MAÎTRISÉ LA BONTÉ, ACQUIÈRE LA BIENVEILLANCE
      Acquérir la bienveillance, c'est être précis dans ce que nous faisons pour les autres et pour notre Dieu, en premier lieux.
      Donner toujours 100% de nous même dans tout ce que nous faisons TÉMOIGNE que nous donnons pleine mesure à ce que notre
      Dieu Jehovah qui à fait à tout les formes de vie et en tout ce qu'Il a créé. 
      Regardons la création de YHWH, 
      SA CRÉATION EST SI PRÉCISE QU'ELLE EST COORDONNÉE COMME UNE HORLOGE.
      Soyons précis dans nos actions, nos paroles et nos pensées car tout ce que nous faisons à une empreinte sur la vie de nous même et des autres 
      Suivre les paroles de son livre Saint, nous donne des conseilles judicieux à nous même et aux autres car il nous faut la maitrise de nous même en chaque fruits de l'esprit et en connaitre sa valeur si puissante, avant de pouvoir l'enseigner avec qualité au brebis perdu et s'entraider les uns les autres dans un but commun, réjouir le coeur de notre Créateur tout puissant. Le SAINT SAINT SAINT (Rév 4:8 c)
      C'EST AINSI DE RECEVOIR DE NOTRE DIEU, SA BONTÉ DE COEUR.
      Parvenons ensemble à revêtir la personnalité nouvelle. Ainsi nous refléterons les qualités exemplaires, d'un serviteur de Jéhovah. 
      L'ouverture de notre d'esprit est salutaire car tout nos actions en c'est vertues viennent de YHWH.
      Le salut appartient à Jéhovah et par se fait recevoir les bénédictions accorder par Dieu, à tous ces serviteurs fidèles.(Ps 3: 8)
      AGISSONS AINSI cela montrera que nous suivons les pas de l'homme le plus grand de tout les temps qui est le Oint  
      de notre Dieu, Jésus Christ.
      La bienveillance de Jésus Christ fut extraordinaire son humilité et sa compassion, dévoila la beauté de sa personne.  ( Ph 2:1-11)
      Sans relâche, il témoignait de tout coeur par ces beaux discours sans se glorifié mais en glorifiant son Père et en son Saint Nom, à la nation qu'il voulait sauvé, les humains de la terre entière par l'Amour infini de notre Dieu.
      Les paroles qu'il utilisait était toujours précisent pour trouver les brebis égarés dans les témoignages aux le pied des montagnes, dans les synagogues, dans les rues et de portes en portes. IL FUT UN ENSEIGNANT EXTRAORDINAIRE POUR CES DISCIPLES ET TOUT CES PRÉDICATEURS DE LA FOI POUR L'ANNONCEMENT DU ROYAUME PROMIS.
      Tout ce qu'il utilisa venu de son Père.
      Comme ce passage qui révèla que tout fut enseigné avant sa venu.
      "Je ne fais rien de ma propre initiative.
      Tout ce que je vous dit en ce moment, viens de mon Père, son Dieu, notre Dieu. JEHOVAH"
      Faisons comme lui, suivons ses pas sans relâche avec  fermeté, obéissance et intégrité. 
      ACQUIÈRE LA PATIENCE.
      NOUS SOMMES TOUS DES ENFANTS DE DIEU ET YHWH EST PATIENT AVEC NOUS.
      La patience est prendre attention envers tous ceux que nous voulons intimement PURIFIER ET ENSEIGNER AVEC QUALITÉ
      Entrer en relation avec les autres mais avant tout, prendre le temps de devenir à l'élite de soi avant de pouvoir
      Donner des conseilles à ceux que nous voulons aider car YHWH LE FIT PENDANT DES MILLIARDS D'ANNÉES
      AVANT NOUS ET BIEN AVANT QUE TOUTE CETTE CRÉATION PHYSIQUE SOIT CRÉÉ.
      YHWH MÉDITA PENDANT DES MILLIARDS ANNÉES AVANT DE CRÉER SON FILS SA PREMIÈRE CREATION ET TOUT CE QUI EN SUIVIT.
      Maîtriser la patience nous donne ĺa chance de vivre en notoriété avec les lois de YHWH ET AINSI COMPLÉTER L'ÉQUILIBRE 
      QUE NOTRE DIEU VEUX QUE NOUS FASSIONS POUR  NOUS MÊME ENVERS JEHOVAH ET EN SUIVANT LES PAS DE JESUS SON OINT, SA PREMIÈRE CRÉATION. ENSEIGNONS LA VOIE DU SALUT DE NOTRE DIEU, À NOTRE PROCHAIN, D'UN COEUR COMPLET.
      SOYONS PATIENT ENVERS AUTRUI COMME JÉHOVAH L'EST POUR NOUS TOUS , SERVITEUR DE JEHOVAH
      La patience est prendre attention à l'autre et de donner du temps à nos amis et à ceux que nous voulons partager la connaissance exacte de notre Dieu.
      Jéhovah est patient avec nous et nous savons que chacun de nous avons des qualités et des défauts et que nous allons pas à la même vitesse, dans les changements que Jéhovah nous dicte le chemin, QU'IL NOUS A DONNÉ QUAND NOUS AVONS CHOISIS DE DEVENIR SON SERVITEUR ,PAR NOTRE BAPTÊME.
      La patience est une vertue dure à atteindre et elle nous aie primordiale et très importante POUR NOTRE VIE ET À CELLE DES AUTRES.
      C'EST POUR CELA QUE NOUS DEVONS AGIR SANS JUGER LES AUTRES ET DONNER LE TEMPS AVEC BIENVEILLANCE À S'ENTRAIDER ENSEMBLE POUR MAITRISER NOTRE VIE AVEC PATIENCE. L'AMOUR ET L'UNITÉ EST LA CLÉ (Jean 13 :34)
      Nous sommes tous important pour Jéhovah et il nous donne à tous, la chance de faire les actions nécessaires en son temps pour réjouir Son Coeur.
      Ainsi une vertue extraordinaire que peu de gens ont connu dans une vie, qui est la Paix véritable.
      COMMENT ACQUÉRIR LA PAIX véritable et par dessus tout en acquérir la vertue?
      LA PREMIÈRE QUALITÉ POUR ATTEINDRE LA PAIX EST L'OBÉISSANCE AUX LOIS DE YHWH.
      Vivre avec intégrité aux norme de YHWH nous donne un sentier éclairé, qui nous apporte à voir clair dans nos agissements et cela en conformité
      Avec les lois de la nature que Jéhovah a instauré dans son univers élégant . Jéhovah nous a donné un livre comment devenir maître de notre vie en se laissant diriger par sa parole.
      La bonté de coeur que nous apportons aux autres et que leurs réussites dans les conseilles que nous avons puisé dans la parole de Dieu, nous réjouis le coeur et par le même fait, nous donne de la paix, car ce que nous avons suivit porta fruit à ceux qui les ont accepté de plein coeur, en plongeant sans hésitation à les mettre en pratiques dans leur vie comme nous avons agis de la même manière en les inculquant dans notre vie. Par notre exemple, ils ont excellé et acquis de beau résultat dans leur vie et par nous même et bien par la même voie que nous avons empruntés en se laissant diriger par notre Dieu que par la patience nous avons intégré en nous la vertue de la paix par la lecture de sa parole, la bible. La paix s'obtiens par la connaissance de la vérité de Dieu et cela en faisant les actions nécessaire sans hésitation au modèle DES PAS DE NOTRE GUIDE SPIRITUEL, celle de JÉSUS CHRIST. La paix s'obtiens même dans les pires souffrances que Jésus à vécu dans le passé. Nombre de personnes qui ont laissé leur ancienne vie vers l'unique chemin de la vie éternelle et qu'ils ont dû accepté de grave souffrance jusqu'à leur mort pour trouver la paix sans fin. N'oublions pas que la souffrance est comme une tempête turbulente et dévastatrice mais gardons en mémoire que celui qui n'à pas peur de perde son Âme pour sa foi vivra vraiment pour toujours. Une tempête ne dure jamais longtemps et la paix que Jehovah nous offre de vivre en paix et cela pour toujours, pour l'éternité à celui qui sans relâche ne renonce pas d'aller de l'avant, c'est ainsi  que l'on trouvera la joie véritable.
      Comme dit le dictons : Après la pluie, c'est le beau temps. 
      Alors que devons nous faire pour atteindre la paix?
      Laissons nous diriger par notre guide sauveur, Jésus Christ, que par son obéissance de donner sa vie pour tout les juste de la terre, il ouvra le chemin de la liberté éternelle À CELUI QUI SE LAISSE DIRIGER PAR SON ENSEIGNEMENT VENANT DE SON PÈRE, LE SAINT SAINT SAINT. (Rev: 4: 8 )(Ep 1: 4)
      Fixons solidement nos regard sur la parole de notre Créateur avec des actions véritables qui réjouis le coeur de notre Dieu et ainsi nous sentirons en nous même dans cette période ardu proche de la fin, une paix véritable aux fond de notre coeur et qui se manifestera car Jéhovah protège et donne force à ses fidèle enfants de la foi. Trouvons ainsi une nouvelle vertue en notre être: La Joie.
      TROUVONS LE CHEMIN DE LA JOIE PAR LA PAIX VÉRITABLE
      Comment pouvons nous acquérir la Joie véritable dans ce monde remplis de désordre?
      Celui qui plonge les regards dans la loi parfaite, celle de la liberté, et qui y persiste, [...] qui fait l’œuvre, sera heureux en la faisant. ” — Jacques 1:25.
      Heureux ceux qui sont intègres dans leur voie. 
      LA LUMIÈRE PAR LA CONNAISSANCE NOUS DONNE DE LA JOIE.
      "Ceux qui marchent dans la loi de Jéhovah".
      Heureux ceux qui observent ses rappels.
      De tout Coeur, ils le recherche sans relâche."Psaume 119 : 
      Nôtres modèle de foi qui est venu sur la terre par Son Père, Jésus a affronté chaque étape de sa vie,
      Avec une ténacité exemplaire, sans relâche jusqu'à sa mort sacrificielle pour l'Amour de notre Dieu YHWH 
      Cela ne fut pas facile de garder sa foi en voyant le monde ainsi depuis sa jeunesse.
      Voir les actions du méchant son regard, celui des yeux, Jésus a vu des images réelles du mal.
      Il ressentait comme nous tous  les désirs puissants de notre être qui peut nous faire succomber.
      Il n'y étaient pas aveuglé, il entendait,, il ressentait, il était constamment attaqué par un ennemi terrifiant.
      cela était réelle, il vivait notre vie.
      Jésus voyait de l'avant, sans renoncer, il avançait, dans le chemin, qui lui était destiné.
      Ce chemin lui appartenait, il devait le faire pour l'Amour de son Père envers tout les justes de la terre.
      Il l'a fait par la joie de faire la volonté de son Dieu, son Père. Notre Dieu, Jehovah.
      Nous avons connu la vie ( la voie ) par notre choix de servir Dieu  
      Par notre coeur grand ouvert dans un sens unique
      De celle de la justice du Royaume De Dieu.
      D'obéir de tout notre coeur à celui de l'Amour de YHWH
      QUE NOTRE VOLONTÉ EST DE CRAINDRE NOTRE CRÉATEUR. (Ps 112:1) (Ps 111:10)
      ÊTRE INTÈGRE EN TOUTES ACTIONS D'UNE MANIÈRE JUSTE. (Ps26:1)
      AINSI:
      Ils et Elles (vierge avisée) ne font plus partie de ce monde, car notre joie, est dans ce que nous accomplissons par notre volonté pour servir notre Dieu, Jéhovah. (MT 25:1 - 13)
      La Parole de Dieu nous partage, nous dicte la voie tracée, resserrée, qui nous mène au paradis.
      Notre espérance volontaire à servir et d'aimer notre Dieu Jehovah de tout notre coeur, de tout notre être, de tout notre âme, de tout notre esprit et tout notre force vitale (souffle de vie) (Mt22:37) (Deut 6:5)
      Notre Amour:
      Ce manifeste par nos chants.
      En exaltant son Nom dans notre ministère , 
      En annoncant son Nom et son royaume et sa justice. (Mt 24:14) (Mt 28:19:20)(Mt 6:33)
      Semons les graines de vérité, par ce fruit de l'esprit qui nourris la joie..
      La joie est de se purifier devant Jéhovah et devant son Roi, Jésus Christ.
      D'une manière juste,  qui se manifeste par les actions véritable venant du coeur
      qui reflète les exigences des normes de la justice de Dieu,
      Celle qui reflète les qualités de l'armure de la foi que NOUS  avons minitiueusement consu EN nous, EN SE LAISSANT GUIDER PAR LES PAROLES DE NOTRE DIEU TRANSMIT PAR SON FILS, qui nous donnera la joie de connaître pour toujours, l'Amour de YHWH.
      Maîtriser la joie est manié la bible comme une épée à deux tranchant, Semer les graines de vérités aux coeur de nos futur fidèles 
      Qui recherche toutes les connaissances de vérité de sa Sainte Parole. 
      Comme nous même, avant toute choses, devant  notre Dieu Jéhovah.
      Avoir le désir de le faire avec joie, par un coeur complet, pour le Bien.
      Comme Dieu enseigne le Bien.
      C'est notre purification intérieur qui reflète notre lumière extérieur. (Mt 5 : 14)
      Qui brillera dans l'obscurité, dans les périodes DE TOUT LES JOURS ET CELA JUSQU'À  la fin DE CE SYSTÈME DE CHOSES.
      Elle distingue une vibration d'ouverture de la vérité par ce qui est vraiment bon et vrai, en nous.
      Nous devons avoir la foi pour trouver la joie, car cela donne de la force et du courage
      contre les peurs qui sont attachés à nous, en nous.
      Par la connaissance de la bible, nous puissions s'alléger de nos peurs et s'élever par la foi et la bienveillance 
      Ainsi Bondir, sans redescendre,
      accomplir notre destiné, notre but que nous nous avons fixé dans notre coeur dans un sens unique, De faire la volonté de notre Créateur. 
      LE TRAVAIL PERSONNEL, le plus important de notre vie.
      Accomplir le chemin que Jéhovah nous a donné, le faire dans la joie.
      Recevoir la lumiere d'Amour de la vie Éternel PAR NOTRE DIEU CRÉATEUR TRANSMIT PAR SON OINT Jésus Christ.
      La joie apporte à ne pas renoncer et faire briller notre lumière telle 
      Une vierge avisée, qui garde en son coeur la connaissance du salut et qui travaille fort à garder sa lumière pure jusqu'aux jours de la grande guerre d' Harmaguédon. (Mt 25:1-13)
      Les serviteurs de Jéhovah fortifie leur joie par la demande de la connaissance ultime, par la prière, la lecture de la connaissance parfaite et de la méditation.
      Restons fidèle en toutes actions à la justice de Dieu
      Obéissons par l'humilité et le véritable Amour, celui qui vient de notre coeur et tout notre ensemble créé.
      La vertue de la Joie s'acquière en nous même, elle devient la protection contre toutes épreuves
      Nous devons et devront surmonter,  comme à l'exemple de Jésus Christ,  accomplir notre vie dans la pureté.
      Nous sommes des serviteurs de Jéhovah
      Notre maitrise de soi, que nous maîtrisons par des nos actions justes répéter aux jours le jours,
      pas à pas,  
      Égrandir notre foi, nous allègeant et nous libèrant des désirs mauvais, de ce système de choses.
      Notre joie grandit par la libération du filet destiné aux méchants, que nous étions destinés (Ps 9:15,16)
      Depuis notre naissance et que la parole de la vérité, nous apprenons à dénouer
      Les noeuds qui nous emprisonnent et qui nous empêche de gravir vers la liberté promise.
      Soyons patient et continuons à trouvé les clefs à chaques noeufs qui nous retiennent à ce monde et continuons 
      À se détacher de la tristesse de ce monde et demander de la joie à notre Dieu pour vibrer et s'aider 
      À se libérer de nos liens.
      La joie est ne jamais renoncer et garder les yeux fixés vers le But  de l'espérance de la promesse de YHWH.
      L'AMOUR LE FRUIT DE L'ESPRIT QUI NOUS GARDE EN VIE.
      TROUVONS LES GESTES QUI MANIFESTE L'AMOUR DE DIEU PAR NOUS MÊME. 
      (1cor 13 :4 à 8a)
      L'amour est patient et bon. L'amour n'est pas jaloux, il ne se vante pas, ne se gonfle pas d'orgueil.
      N'agit pas de façon inconvenante,  ne cherche pas ses propres intérêts, ne s'irrite pas.
      Il ne tient pas compte du mal subi. Il ne se réjouit pas de l'injustice, mais se réjouit avec la vérité.
      Il supporte tout, croit tout, endure tout.
      L'amour ne disparaît jamais.
      L’Amour est ce sentiment ineffable de la Paix et du Bonheur
      Qui emplit notre cœur et tout notre être.
      L’énergie d’Amour est la seule, l’unique,
      Celui qui nous lie à notre cœur conscient, à notre cœur confiant, à notre cœur relié à celui de Dieu par Jésus Christ. (Ps 25: 1, 2)
      C’est lui qui nous a créé tel que nous sommes, qui nourrit nos cellules à la sagesse parfaite, qui nous gardera en vie pour toujours.
      QUI nous fait vibrer au diapason de la Beauté Infinie de la Vérité parfaite (Ps 19: 7).
      Cet Amour Infini est en nous et nous élève sur tous les plans, dans toutes les dimensions de notre vie.
      Apprenons à recevoir ; ouvrons notre cœur.
      Apprenons à donner ; ouvrons notre cœur.
      Apprenons à faire circuler cette lumière de nos cœurs d’âmes vers les autres cœurs d’âmes QUE NOUS RECHERCHONS DANS TOUT LES TERRITOIRES AVANT SA VENU ULTIME celui de la fin de ce système de chose méchant.
      La seule beauté de vivre est l’Amour
      La seule beauté d’être est l’Amour
      La seule beauté de partager est l’Amour
      La seule beauté de grandir et d’évoluer est l’Amour
      L’Amour et l'unité sont le fondement de la création réelle et concrète de l’Univers DE TOUT CE QUI EXISTE DU VISIBLE À L'INVISIBLE.
      Croyons qu’à une seule Vérité ; celle de l’Amour de YHWH.
      Les enseignements de YHWH sont des clés pour notre intellect si prégnant, des berceuses à notre ego pour que le chemin apparaisse, libre de tous les obstacles.
      En nous est un Univers Infini,
      En nous est l’Amour Infini.
      Notre monde intérieur crée notre monde extérieur
      Notre maître intérieur est le reflet de celui qui nous parle, Jésus Christ, par son Père ( JEHOVAH YHWH )
      ALLONS en nous pour l’interroger (Ps 26 :2, 3)
      ALLONS vers Lui pour savoir reconnaître ce qui nous convient
      FAISONS LUI confiance car sans la confiance l'Amour n'existe pas. Laissons nous guider comme un enfant de Dieu.
      Notre vérité est en l'Unique vérité de l'Amour de Jehovah
      Notre Amour nous le partageons avec tous en unions avec notre Dieu et son Oint.
      Chacun de nous évolue à son rythme.
      Chacun de nous décide en toute conscience de suivre pas à pas ce chemin, car nous sommes libre et responsable de nos choix. ( Ps 25: 12)
      Nous sommes des Êtres merveilleux capables de créer et d’expérimenter pour le bien de tous. Nous pouvons tous aussi bien créer les difficultés dans notre vie, que des choses merveilleuses qui nous ressemblent à l'image de Dieu.
      Sachons partager notre temps en apprentissage et en application ; l’apprentissage passe par l’intellect et l’intégration au niveau du cœur et se réalise par les applications dans la vie de tous les jours.
      Il n’y a pas de personne « meilleure » qu’une autre.
      C’est nous-même ou entre nous que nous installons différents niveaux d’amour car tout est à l'intérieur de nous.
      Apprenons simplement à être "Qui nous sommes".
      Apprenons à devenir Qui nous sommes par Amour et dans l’Amour, des bontés de coeur de notre Dieu YHWH.
      Et si nous ne savons comment faire, ouvrons notre cœur vers l’intérieur par la prière et la méditation, en nous acceptant tel que nous sommes, en nous aimant tel que nous sommes en nous laissant guider par les pas de Jésus Christ notre Roi Sauveur.
      Soyons comme des enfants de Dieu
      Le vrai Amour est l'amour Inconditionnel agapè, celui qui fut créé par la Sagesse universel qui fut transmit par son Oint Jésus Christ notre Roi.
      Celle qui vient de Dieu et qui se manifeste par son Esprit Saint que nous recevons quand nous sommes des enfants aimés de Jéhovah.
      Que notre amour ce lie par notre volonté de servir à jamais le Dieu d'Amour qui créa toute choses et dont sa promesse est de vivre pour toujours
      Dans un univers parfait remplis de joie, de paix et d'une santé parfaite ( Révélation 21 : 3, 4)
      Louons YHWH JEHOVAH pour toujours.
      Gloire à notre Créateur Tout Puissant Eternel  YHWH, Gloire à son fils Jésus Christ, le Roi des Roi et de son Esprit Saint.
      JESUS  À DIT: Il y a six principes pour réussir sa vie OUI  SEPT PRINCIPES, LES VOICI:
       
      LA MAÎTRISE DE SOI
      GALATES 5:19à21 et 22 à 23 )
      1 Laissez l’argent à la place qui lui revient
      “ L’amour de l’argent est une racine de toutes sortes de choses mauvaises, et en aspirant à cet amour quelques-uns se sont [...] transpercés partout de bien des douleurs. ” (1 Timothée 6:10). 
      2 Cultivez la générosité
      “ Il y a plus de bonheur à donner qu’à recevoir. ” (Actes 20:35)
      3 Pardonnez volontiers
      “ Continuez [...] à vous pardonner volontiers les uns aux autres, si quelqu’un a un sujet de plainte contre un autre. Tout comme Jéhovah vous a pardonné volontiers, vous aussi faites de même. ” (Colossiens 3:13)
       4 Observez les normes divines
      “ Le commandement de Jéhovah est pur, faisant briller les yeux. ” (Psaume 19:8). 
      5 Faites preuve d’un amour désintéressé
      “ L’amour bâtit. ” (1 Corinthiens 8:1). 
      6 Soyez conscient de votre “ pauvreté spirituelle ”
      “ Heureux ceux qui sont conscients de leur pauvreté spirituelle. ” (Matthieu 5:3)
      ▪ Ayez une crainte salutaire de Dieu. “ La crainte de Jéhovah est le début de la sagesse. ” — Proverbes 9:10.
      ▪ Choisissez judicieusement vos amis. “ Qui marche avec les sages deviendra sage, mais qui a des relations avec les stupides s’en trouvera mal. ” — Proverbes 13:20.
      ▪ Rejetez les excès. “ Ivrogne et glouton tomberont dans la pauvreté. ” — Proverbes 23:21.
      ▪ Ne cherchez pas à vous venger. “ Ne rendez à personne le mal pour le mal. ” — Romains 12:17.
      ▪ Soyez travailleur. “ Si quelqu’un ne veut pas travailler, qu’il ne mange pas non plus. ” — 2 Thessaloniciens 3:10.
      ▪ Appliquez la Règle d’or. “ Tout ce que vous voulez que les hommes fassent pour vous, de même vous aussi, vous devez le faire pour eux. ” — Matthieu 7:12.
      ▪ Maîtrisez votre langue. “ Celui qui veut aimer la vie et voir des jours heureux, qu’il garde sa langue de ce qui est mauvais. ” — 1 Pierre 3:10.
      Accomplir et maîtriser ceci, c'est découvrir les plus beau secrets de l'univers de Jéhovah.
