    I make vidoes with my twin brother NEW VID

    Why forfeit my confidence and quality of life just to fit the cliche reputation of a “man?” What I’ve learned is that it’s definitely “manlier” to just do whatever makes me feel like the most confident version of myself. It’s actually very simple now that I’ve written it...

    I had severe acne, now my face is filled with scars and I can’t seem to be upset about it anymore... At first, my acne completely destroyed my self confidence. I’ve always been an advocate of embracing your appearance no matter what. I found myself giving advice to friends when they struggled with their self image. I was always so happy to hear that my words helped. If these were my own words, and they had proven to help others... why couldn’t they help me? I couldn’t seem to take my own advice. It’s so crazy how I honestly don’t care what people think, but I care so much at the same time. It makes about just as much sense to me, as that last sentence probably made to you. I slowed me entire life down because of marks on my face. Didn’t wanna be on camera, didn’t wanna go in public, didn’t want people to see me. I got to a point where I’d see friends that I hadn’t seen in a while and apologize about the way my face looked. In hindsight that’s the most ridiculous thing ever. What was going on with my skin was natural and unavoidable, but I couldn’t accept it. I’m used to going through everything in my life with having someone to relate to who goes through everything I do; my twin. This time, I didn’t have that. Gray‘s skin decided to just glow while mine did the opposite. This was the first time I was going through something ALONE... at least I thought. It wasn’t until I stopped hiding and finally expressed my vulnerable side to everyone who keeps up with me on social media, that I finally felt some sort of relief. Brave people who were going through what I was came to share their stories and comfort me. I’ll forever be thankful for you all, you truly got me out of such a shitty place in my mind. As I felt less alone, I felt more confident. Instead of my insecurities feeding off one another, my confidence ignited more confidence. It truly is the little things that initiate the climb out of a low place. I can’t say that I’m FULLY confident 100% of the time with the way my skin looks, but I can definitely say that my self image and mental state has improved immensely and reached a level I never thought it could be at again.

    With all the craziness and uncertainty of these unusual times, the thing affecting my mental state the most was progression in my life being stunted by forces out of my control. As someone who finds happiness from routine, it was hard for me to adjust from the shock of my normal routine being completely destroyed. At first I felt myself going to sleep every night knowing nothing in my life was progressing. I needed to find satisfaction in something! I needed to know I was at least getting better at SOMETHING every single day. I decided to make that one thing my health. I felt like shit just sitting around eating junk accomplishing nothing. I challenged myself to try to get in the best physical shape I have ever been in. Staying on myself to work out every day, even if it’s just for a couple minutes. I’m starting to feel great once again. I’m starting to feel like I’m getting somewhere!! These weird times have actually allowed me to develop a healthy habit that I’ll take with me after this is all through. Focus on yourself, love u guys
I’m also vegan

    On the realest of real and also the truest of true shit, my mom is the strongest person I know. You’ve taught me my most valuable life lessons and I still continue to learn from you everyday. Even though you think I’m a know it all, cuz I am, I still look up to you because I admire your values and the way you live life. Thank you for absolutely everything ma. I’m sorry for being difficult and giving you a hard time sometimes, but then again I didn’t exist on purpose so I guess that’s your fault

    In California rn there are bioluminescent algae in the ocean that light up when the waves crash. We went to check it out last night and we were freaking out as you can tell 😂
