So I've been thinking about become a vlogger on YouTube; I feel it'd help with my self-confidence if I managed it and would also be cool as sort of a video diary I could one day look back on.

However throughout school I've been bullied by people due to who I am and the way I look which has knocked my confidence to the point of not allowing myself to be photoed or videoed due to people saying hurtful things about me. I feel like this could be a step forward for me but I don't want my confidence to be knocked further as a result of it.

Do you guys have any advice for me?
Thanks ♥

That sounds like a great idea--but, yeah, the internet being what it is, you probably want to learn to let some of the crap just roll off. I'm afraid I don't have much advice as to what you to can do to keep some of the hurtful stuff from even happening in the first place.

FYI, I do have to close this thread because starting new personal/help threads in the forums isn't allowed. However we do have a special thread already created where you can post, and get advice.

Just cut and paste what you wrote, into a new post here: /forumtopic-1099/the-general-helpadvice-thread

For future reference you can find "The General Help/Advice Thread" as one of the sticky topics near the top of the General Discussion forum.

Good luck with confidence building, and the creativity of a new vlog.
