    Finally found the courage to create Mental Health vlog!!!

    I've struggled with social anxiety and mental health for many years. Finally found the courage to do something I've wanted to do for a very long time, but fear has prevented me. I made a video on the topic of perfectionism and how to deal with it. I hope I can connect with some of you.
