What do you do when you feel powerless?When I feel powerless, I can dig myself into a hole and get insecure sometimes like everything else. The best way to pick myself up is to do self-care, focus on my mental health, and get back into a good mindset. I clean my room and organize — to me that's self-care — and work out and eat better. I love face masks.
