On the topic of being anxious about what other people think of you, you said: “My hope is that this is just what it’s like to be human”, and I think you are absolutely correct. Everybody feels that. It would be really difficult to find a human being who can honestly say: “I have never been concerned about what other people think of me”, because we all want to be loved. […]

My point here, as cheesy as it may sound, is that you are not alone.  And not only are you not alone but you are an inspiration to literally millions of people.  And that is not an accident. When people ask me who is your favorite youtuber I don’t even have to think about it. It’s instantaneous: Charlie McDonnell.

But why? Do other youtubers sometimes have a higher production value than you? Yes. Do other youtubers sometimes speak more eloquently than you? Yes. Do other youtubers sometimes have more sculpted bodies that you do? Yes. But you have something that no other person on this planet has. […] No matter how hard you try, you cannot create something that doesn’t somehow have your personality embedded in it. What this means is that you don’t have to be afraid that people won’t like the things you do because people like you.

We Are All Scared
