Instagram Clone - Need help with messaging

I’m making an Instagram clone, and I want to add messaging to it. I was wondering if there was any way to select bot messages from (Current User) and (User 2)?

Thanks in advance.

My assumption here is that bot is missing an h and you meant to type both and are not actually referring to using a chat bot.

Here is a screen shot from the database structure of my Chat Messaging Template

The Participant-List which is a list of Users in the Chat-Conversation data type enable a lot of functionality.

I rely on the Chat-Conversation data type to display all the messages between both users who are part of the conversation. I use the Creator data field on the Chat-Message data type to track who sent the message, and therefore through process of elimination who received the message.
