Mikey Caloca / ONE37pm

This week's Inside The Screen, hosted by Aaron "Don" Dukes, features the welcome return of special guest Draynilla. And with that return visit came a deep and insightful conversation that delved into the mental aspects of streaming.

When the topic of one's anxiety comes up, Draynilla offers his take on how he's confronted those types of emotions throughout his life and career - "When I would start my stream, I would have the craziest anxiety. But I would just like, ignore it. But it ultimately led me to where I am now and where I need to get away from that by focusing on me and dealing with that. I would be worrying for no reason! And so I'm starting to deal with it by exercising, going outside, hanging out with your friends, etc. Those are the biggest stress relievers."

Aaron also inquires about Draynilla finally feeling comfortable enough to accept the success he's garnered over time and his mental well-being. "I'm very blessed and very thankful to be in the position I'm in right now," Draynilla stated. "And I say that because I have people and a support group around me that understand what I'm going through and they are constantly telling me & reassuring me that they're there for me." Draynilla currently resides in a location dubbed "The SoaR House," which is a hub for content creators that create IRL and Apex Legends-themed material for SoaR. When Draynilla made it clear at one point that he may not be up to the task of recording content due to dealing with his mental stresses, he mentions that the good folks at SoaR acknowledged his struggles and gave him the time needed to sort them out in order to get back to a good place.

Make sure you check out the rest of Aaron's spirited conversation with Draynilla to learn about his biggest goals for 2022 & beyond, the inspirational content that he comes across on TikTok, and so much more.
