Would Freud have imagined discussing someone’s Facebook posts or Twitter arguments during a session? Has our “online identity” become so powerful that it can affect our mental health? How do we navigate the digital world while still holding a richness of self? Today’s Daily Dose shared by Linda Papadopoulos is a great start in understanding the power of our online image.

We once were told “what will THEY say about you?”; now we know what THEY will say  because it’s affirmed by the instant feedback of social media. The number of likes, hearts or smiley face emoji’s can either bring joy or despair to those of us who hold the opinion of others very close to our hearts.  What can we do to maintain mental health while still enjoying the amazing digital world we live in?
