Honestly I feel like Jack’s 15 mil milestone was one of the most meaningful milestones yet.
Especially the part where he was talking about positivity and how people shouldn’t be expected to be happy 100% of the time because
a lot of youtubers say stuff like “You just need to go out there and be happy like I did” or “Just smile and treat everyone with respect even if they don’t agree with you” because…I can’t do that. A lot of people like me with depression can’t be expected to be able to be positive 100%, and I feel like Jack understands this and wants to at least make us feel happy while watching his videos, even if it’s for a short period of time. If someone comes up to me and calls me a faggot who should burn in hell (which happens a lot) I can’t just be expected to smile and say “Hey It’s ok you don’t agree with me!”, that just raises the stigma and causes more hate to people like me. I should be allowed to say “Hey fuck you, man.” and go about my day without being walked on, you know? It’s a two way street, I can’t be expected to respect and listen to people who would never respect or listen to me.
I know youtubers mean well when they say “Respect everyone and things will be fine” and “just be happy.” But Jack is the only youtuber I’ve found who gets that sometimes I won’t be able to do that. I need to take things one step at a time and do what’s comfortable for me.
Anyway, I’m rambling, to sum up, I love my boy.
@therealjacksepticeye Thanks for being so understanding.
