You Nailed This Topic thank you for coming out and speaking the truth on this there's a difference between keeping your head up and being oblivious to something that is going on in your life and someone tells you to stay up it won't fix the situation so once again I thank you for being mine and I have to bring this topic up
there's this small youtuber
You dont have to be Happy the hol Time its okay when you not happy you are a humen tow you cant do it it makes you go away from your rell person and hey the Videos you have raelly fun with it are the bests so stay by yourself
I totally agree with the broader point of this video, all emotions should be felt and addressed, and its perfectly normal to be unhappy. However, you admitted you did the same thing, and it helped your channel be what it is today. So how can you say other youtubers shouldn't do it?
Can i feel u up?
stop screaming around like a retard you fucking idiot .. CANT YOU JUST TALK WITHOUT SCREAMING EVERY MINUTE!! DAMN!!
I agree :)
Pewds did you watched Inside Out????
I favour you and markiplier over my other subscribed channels because you guys seem to feel about stuff like this. I like that. It is cool. It is cool because whenever I see videos like this I know although you guys are leagues above us all you are still human. And you show that to us. Thx
True joy only comes from being reconciled to our Creator. Only through Jesus Christ can we have joy (true happiness that endures all).
Call me a close-minded religious nut...
But I truly care about all of you, and I know that the truth about life is only found in the Gospel. Repentance and Belief in Jesus Christ means denying self and giving up your life of sin, then putting your trust (faith) in the Lord Jesus Christ, following Him with all your heart. I know what the future holds for me and and all who are truly following God (Jesus), I do not fear what this life can do to me, I do not fear death, I fear God out of love because He has the power to condemn and pardon. God's Word says those who believe not are condemned already. Humanity needs to ask themselves the deep questions about what it means to be here on this earth as a human being, and question what they believe to be true. If you are truly seeking after the truth, there is only one place it will lead you to, and that is the truth of the Gospel, God's very Word. The world can not offer you hope. Only the embodiment of love and forgiveness that is in Jesus Christ, the one true Living God of the Bible. I know this post will be mocked and scorned, but consider your life and the brief time you will be on this earth. What is your life? It is a vapour that is here for a little time, but then vanishes away. We will all die and stand before the Lord and give an account of our life. You do not have to be found guilty on that day. All have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God, if you deny this you are a liar. God was manifest in the flesh (became a man) to die for the sins of humanity and to show us the way. He took the punishment we deserve although he was innocent. He sacrificed His life for us that we might find life and purpose in Him. We are called to forsake all and follow the Truth. Jesus Christ said He is the truth. John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
Pewdiepie mentioned heaven in this video. It is not a concept created by man to make us feel better about death, it is not a myth or superstition. It is the place where God dwells, it is the very living presence of God Himself. There are two places you can end up in when you give up your last breath. You will either be in the presence of God for eternity, or separated from His presence and sent to the place we all deserve to go for our crimes against God and people. God is Holy, God is just, he will punish sin (evil). However God gives us what we do not deserve, and that is mercy. He is willing to pardon you and forgive you, because of what Jesus did in your place, dying the death you and I deserve.
There is unhappiness, sadness, sorrow, despair, hopelessness, depression, anxiety, loss, confusion, bitterness, hate, anger, selfishness, injustice, corruption, darkness, fear, etc. because of SIN. Human beings SIN. We are responsible for suffering. We do terrible things to each other, our world, and most importantly to God. We deny Him and reject Him and seek after our own lust and self-gratification and create a reality and belief that suppresses the truth we know about God in order to not feel the guilt of what our conscience convicts us of. Come to the light, and come to terms with the truth about your life and come to Jesus Christ. Read the Bible and look at yourself in the light of the Word of God. Again, if you are honest with yourself you will come to the understanding that the answer has been in front of you all of your life, you have just simply pushed it away and listened to lies. Please, I hope that someone will heed this message and humble themselves in the eyes of God, who sees and knows all things, He sees you. The bible says we are spiritually dead in our sins. God wants to give you life, love, peace, joy, and hope. Believe in Jesus my friends. Be reconciled to God. Do not put your faith in man, we are flawed, but God is perfect and wants to save you and to know you. We have the choice to choose life or death. God gives us free-will. There are eternal consequences for the choices you make in this life. Heaven or Hell people, wake up.
Mark 16:15 And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned.
Jesus said, Repent or Perish. Turn from your sin, realize you are guilty in the eyes of a Holy God, and that you need a savior, you can not save yourself, only God saves.
Love you all and I hope you consider this message. Search your heart, if you are truly honest with yourself, you will find there is a void that only God can fill.
We will all be judged and found guilty without the forgiveness of sin. Repent and believe the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ. This world will pass away, but the Word of God endures forever, and those that do His will. Every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord. Bow now and be redeemed, or bow when it is too late.
1 John 2:15-17
Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever.
Just watching this before viewing Boogie's response
this was extremely valuable content
As someone who has clinical depression - I think depressed people will find themselves agreeing with you on this more than healthy people might. So while I understand why you made that little ado at the end, I don't think those suffering with depression would disagree.
Most of us are actually tired of being told to "just think positive" when it's bullshit.
Great video :)
Thank you for this video :) That nail needed to be hit :)
Well that's why i hated your old videos.
Keep doing these video, you're happier and we're happier win-win right?
YES MAKE MORE OF THESE TYPE OF VIDS
I love this video it reminds me of my job so much. I didn't do school and ended up in retail and going to work in a shop fuckin kills me but I have to be positive all day at work and forcing it makes me exhausted by the end of the day 🤕 I wish people were just happy being who they actually are, it's like the whole body image thing but in our minds. nice Vid!
Just be entertaining. People who are just being positive to get other people to like them are nauseating.
This is the pewdiepie I want.
hey pewds, huge fan of the honesty on your side. its great to take a stand to what you believe in and there's bound to be people who agree with you. i agree for the most part that it sucks to be fake, to appear to be happy all the time and see happiness as a goal in life, assuming that lack thereof is unacceptable or deemed unfavourable. i think youtubers' take on this may have been misinterpreted by you, because i feel that the people who are pushing for positive thinking are the ones who know most about the effects of negative thinking and acknowledge it, but they want to change things and feel more happy. they aint saying that living happy 24/7 is the end goal, its more like through the hard times especially, when negativity is inevitable, try changing things and feeling better about yourself. they are pushing for a positive approach to negativity because its hard, and if you can get through the sadness without all this need for deliberate positive vibes then thats fine! but there are many others who struggle in this area so the message they push is that sadness is hard but keep going. idk if you got any of that haha but in the end yknow theres only so much that matters out of this whole situation! love your channel
More Money, More Problems 💵 💵💵
why the fuck is the maximum amount of replies to a comment only 500? like why is there even a limit
Hello there, a few months ago I thought ... god, how can that guy be that happy all the time? And then I saw a few videos about forced happiness ... and then yesterday I saw yours and as far as I can say it seems to be the most honest of them. I never watched many videos of you because they seemed insincere to me, sometimes, but what you said in that video ... well, you're damn right. Isn't it the emotions that make us human and shouldn't it be the person the people want to see and not any faked one? Every youtuber should habe be the right and the courage to show his emotions, be it happiness, unhappiness, sorrow or anger, whatever. Life is not all guns and roses, as they say ;) I like that side of you. Squirrely Like from me ;)

i came here from casey video
i usually don't watch your videos but this one was really good. I'm drawn to truth more than happiness- and I don't think I'm alone.
"Verily in the remembrance of Allah do hearts find rest"
the only way to please the heart is to remember the one who made it.
This is the best video I've seen Pewds put out. I haven't watched a shit load of his vids but this was very entertaining. Good enough to make me subscribe. 👍
52 million subscribers wtf
I am creating content in a smaller dose on Instagram, but also I can prove that sometimes i feel let down and dont want to post shit. So if you feel like. Follow me at @benedekkiraly 🤘🏾
Ill be so frustrated sometimes, but still totally happy. So much better than supressing that frustration .
filthy frank forces positivity every day
I wish I could give you 10 thumbs up!!! Great video!!! Thanks!
HOW HAS THIS GUY GOT OVER 50 MIL SUBS..... HES WANK!! THERES YOUTUBERS OUT THERE THAT ARE FUNNY AND ENTERTAINING! THIS GUY IS SOOOOO OVERRATED!! WANKER...
i get where hes coming from i feel that its better to be sad and angry at times then to force a smile
Short answer: People want to watch people be happy, because it makes themselves happy.
I agree that forcing yourself to be positive all the time is harmful but forcing yourself to be positive when you're working is normal and the way the world works. I honestly think that most people would lose their job if they didn't act happy when they're there so its stupid to act as if they actually have the choice to not be happy when theyre doing it!!!!!
I unsubscribed several years ago but if you keep up with these kinds of videos I might sub again :)

I agree 100% with pewds. Wish my mom and family understood
Imagine all those hard working men in the coal mines or waking up at 4 am to tend their farm. Lucky you get to sit in a comfy chair talking in to a mic. So cheer up.... you could be cursed with a real job.
I read a book called "Confidence".
The book mentions that confidence is a waste of time.
Honestly you Swedes always look happy, even when you're raging!
I love you and support you....but i think you have a lot of fans and less view is because some people forgot there password in google....And its okay if you tell thw truth the people who really love you will understand you
The logic behind Forced Positivity is the same logic as political correctness, safe spaces. It is all cancerous.
I want to die
It's just sad that you always refer to the old Pewdiepie as cringy... Nobody forced you to do the stuff, which you did back then. The people liked it, thought it were your real emotions, and that's why they subscribed to you. And now you say it was all fake... Isn't it comprehensible that many people dislike your videos nowadays? It's because your subscribers are mainly the guys who subscribed because of your videos back then.

You have the ear of a lot of young people who might be struggling with themselves, so I think it's great you talk about stuff like this. You who might be a rolemodel for people, talking about happiness, ups and downs, is great. Good on you...

while forced positivity isn't something that is the best thing i also think that they are doing it for views so that they can make money, its so easy to criticize people when you're sitting on your high horse and you're filthy rich! but pewds it makes you look like an a**hole. not saying you are wrong just saying that there is nothing wrong with people forcing positivity for views because THAT IS WHAT THE AUDIENCE WANTS. if it wasn't what they wanted they wouldn't watch the videos. in fact the only reason your famous is because YOU DID THE EXACT SAME THING! so your making yourself look two faced.
i still like you pewds but you are already rich and successful let other people follow in your footsteps without you criticizing them for doing the same thing you did once! with all that said i still like the fact that you are being honest and real it gives us a chance to get to know the REAL YOU! which is also what the audience wants. but sometimes people just want a happy person that can make them smile! not someone that is making videos that make you feel like sh*t.
