I have a lot of insecurities. I just want people to know me and to love me, because I have no love. I literally have zero friends. So I like people to adore me, but I never had a talent that made people adore me. So I would try everything, but nothing really worked. But, honestly, YouTube was a godsend. I could literally be myself, and people loved it.
