  3. I love it! So glad that I had a chance to watch someone explain me to me. The video almost put me in the mindset of a sermon but from a different perspective. This was great. I love how she took the time to show how we could be limiting ourselves. Then gave us tools that could help us see ourselves as limitless. Exceptional!

  4. so everything i am going through is depended on my parents. but i still blame myself because I always believe that everything good or bad happened was only because of me. i could have done better
