For as long as I’ve been creating content, I’ve always had one particular struggle, and I’m curious to see if this affects anyone else.The problem is that I’m a massive perfectionist. I have an obsessive need to make everything I produce a certain standard, and usually end up feeling drained and exhausted as a result. This can make producing regular content very difficult as tasks take much longer than they probably should.
I never thought I'd be writing a post like this, because from the age of 22 my dream was to be a "YouTuber". But I just don't love YouTube anymore. Back in 2012, I had just started a Masters Degree, and was overwhelmed with stress and anxiety. YouTube was (or at least felt like) a safe place for me to escape.
I love watching videos. I really do. I have a feeling that my subscription box is probably more varied than most, which might be how I've ended up with two YouTube channels. (One for artsy, creative content; and one where I put makeup on my face; because I couldn't make up my mind). I've left some of my favourites below, who all inspire me for different reasons.
