Additionally, mermaiding provides a sense of freedom and escapism from the stressors of everyday life. It encourages people to embrace their individuality and express themselves in a fun and non-judgmental environment. Overall, mermaiding is a fulfilling and enjoyable activity that offers numerous benefits for both physical and mental well-being.
