    How to Rebuild Self-Esteem After Breakup When Someone Cheats on You

And that’s why I want to write this post… and hopefully help others rebuild self-esteem after breakup. When I was 14, my dad cheated on my mom, and then my first boyfriend ever cheated on me.

    How to Deal with Death – The Story of Losing My Dad

    My dad passed away unexpectedly a few years ago, and this year it hit me hard. I’ve been learning how to deal with death, and wanted to share my experience. I know this topic isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, but part of making videos consistently every single week is that…sometimes I have to make them about what is going on in my head. I didn’t make videos for over 2 years because so much had happened and I didn’t know how to write about it or white to say. This blog and YouTube channel is an outlet for me—so thanks for letting me share. When my dad passed away, I…
