  • I used to hate myself when my best friend ditched me.I could feel him getting distant and I tried everything in my power to make us stay friends.When i once tried to talk about it to him he completely shut me out.I still to date don't know the reason why. I even got kicked out of my own friend circle and it used to kill me seeing them do things without me.But now I'm starting to realize that maybe he just didn't want to be friends with me as simple as that and he found other people who matches with his wavelength and I can't force someone to be friends with me.ily Ava❤️

  • Dont think you arent enough or not *Skinny* enough, society tells young girls that skinny is in when really it is just society's way of thinking, if you are chubby like me and you feel that you arent good enough YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL, read it again, idk who came up with these super unrealistic body goals of big boobs, small waist, big butt, SCREAMS UNHUMAN. Please remember skinny or chubby you are beautiful the way you are PERIOTT. 😉😌❤❤

  • I absolutely LOVE your videos. As for the acne, it might have something to do with wearing masks. Have you looked into the laundry detergent that you are cleaning the masks with? I would def go for like an unscented natural detergent. The detergents we use for our clothes aren't really made to touch our faces and if they have a scent or harsh chemicals in them it could be causing some of the flair-ups that you are experiencing. Of course, you know your skin better than I ever will. Just a suggestion because I know I had issues with gain detergent being used to wash my masks. Caused a bunch of acne on my cheeks. I swapped over to these natural laundry sheets and had a lot less issues. XOXO

  • Since lockdown I've been struggling with acne issues and overtime it gotten so much worst that it affect my mental health. I can't talk to a person straight in their eyes cus I'm too embarrassed. I can't take selfies without beauty filter on and it only made me pressured coz people thought I glew up and became pretty when in reality, it's the opposite. I don't respond to videocalls. I'm too insecure and the worst thing is I can't even buy products to ease my struggle--not even a moisturizer, I'm too broke and unfortunate, it enrages me so much. I'm not trying to invalidate people with money and struggles with this issue, but it will be less harder if only I have the means. Cuz rn I can't do anything but to feel disgusted w my face. I can't even try, I feel so helpless

  • I struggled with hormonal acne after I had my daughter. I am on bactrim and it has helped tremendously! Ask your doc about it it has changed my life. And it’s not as intense as accutane.

  • Hey I love you so much and you always help me to feel more confident. I used to have the same problem with acne all over my cheek(and still do sometimes). If it’s on your cheeks like that it means it’s most likely hormonal acne and can be caused by estrogens in dairy products. Try cutting out dairy it helps because I know acne can be so painful

It's been taking a toll on my mental health and it wasn't that great to begin with. Ava you inspire me SO much and i look up to you!

I’m just like so not confident in myself and like how I look and I know I shouldn’t care but like as a single person I want to feel and look confident but I don’t feel at all like that when I look so bad

  • What I’m struggling with is finding myself while in a relationship. Not only is it starting to get “toxic” but my significant other has been so disrespectful and when something doesn’t go their way they throw a tantrum and blame someone else rather than accepting they made a mistake and figuring out how they can correct it next time. My depression has been off the charts and this person doesn’t help matters even after I talk about it with them and sometimes talking about it causes more arguing. I’d like to know y’all’s thoughts on the matter, what y’all would do, what’s the best way to handle a situation like this, how should I confront myself about what’s happening.

  • for anyone who’s self conscious, remember that stretch marks are OK! we’re not built to be standing 24/7 so obviously it is natural to have stretch marks. i have some small friends and some bigger friends, and we all have them. there’s no need to be ashamed 💞 hope i helped someone :)

Your lesson really is like the content of Dr Ethan. Doctor's demonstrations are actually knowledgable and I actually learned a lot for finals. He is an insightful medical student in the UK and he talks about diabetes! You should really see his YT out and give Doctor Ethan a like here! ➡️ #DoctorEthanStudent
