Hi @markiplier. I know there’s a very small chance you’ll find this in your sea of notifications, but this message also goes out to the community as a whole so I’m okay with that.
At the risk of making this sound like it’s about myself, I’m in an emotional position similar to yours. I feel stuck more often than I feel mobile; I have all kinds of big ideas for writing projects and new songs and even YouTube videos for a channel I haven’t even created yet, but then I end up just spinning my wheels and never finishing them; sometimes not even starting them because I’m too afraid. This feeling of stagnation even pushed me to move cities. It’s scary and weird and it doesn’t feel fixable.
But I assure you, this community that you, me, and millions of other people have created helps with that every step of the way. You saved several of us–myself included–and the fact that we saved you too just makes this all the more magical. And even though your success makes you feel windblown and complacent, I can assure you that there is still forward momentum in all of us. You and Jack and several others inspired the idea for the only book I’ve ever finished–and this community has supported it every step of the way, from the time it went online to the day I took it down! I can’t wait to see it on shelves!
So thank you, from the bottom of my heart–Mark, Jack, this lovely group of people that I’ve been a part of for almost three years now. I’ll probably never meet any of you, but you guys have been some of the closest friends I’ve ever had.
Thank you so much.
