I wanted to talk about this guy who calls himself fousey. Apparently, he has some serious bipolar issues. I'm not saying that YouTube will give you bipolar disorder. What I do notice about YouTube is that it's not for everyone. Fame is not for everyone.
I started YouTube at the time of my life when I was learning to talk to girls. I was learning how to do it from the spiritual perspective. I was learning how to be present in the moment and how to deal with rejection in a mindful way. The natural ego wants to be the man who gets all the girls.
The better you get with talking to women, the more your ego goes away. You no longer want girls in order to show off to people. You just want them for yourself. This sense of not needing to impress people is a sign of maturity. You're not doing things for other people. You're doing it because it pleases you.
The feedback you get from YouTube is amazing. The problem with that kind of feedback is it makes you feel good. Feeling good becomes an addiction. Whenever you feel bad, you're going to look at the comments to make you feel better.
You're accepting the positive comments, but when the negative ones come, you would push them away. When your life's purpose is pleasure, you're hindering the natural drug of life.
When you read negative comments, they now hurt more. They sting harder. What I recommend is to never take compliments seriously. Take them and that's it. Don't take praise that seriously.
Whenever you build yourself up based on people's praise, you will need somebody else in order for you to feel good about yourself. It makes you susceptible to emotions.
If you're somebody who is naturally depressed or have mental issues, you won't be able to deal with those emotions well. With the internet, people could be cruel.
When it comes to doing YouTube, you have to have a strong sense of self. You have to be careful because people will know who you are. You don't know people's intentions.
