I'm actually suffering from depression and I can tell you that this video was more helpful and encouraging than the regular "dont give up" bullshit👌🏻👌🏻 Seriously "keep it positive" it's the worse advice you can give to someone
I've struggled with Major Depressive disorder my entire life. Last year, when I came out of inpatient after a suicide attempt, I really started getting into gaming channels. Jacksepticeye and pewdiepie seriously helped with things I went through mentally. Now having things under control, I'm fine. When I'm super happy, I know it'll end soon. But when I'm extremely depressed (still happens often, yay mdd), I just continuously remind myself that the feeling will go away. Social media puts emphasis on happiness, healthiness, and ironically the depths of depression. There needs to be a balance that goes on.
he sounds like my therapist tbh.... dr pewds
this is the most honest video you've ever made. you re made a youtube career thanks to your "forced positiviy" and you re finally accept that. congratz.
But I'm sad all the time? Something's happened in my life and I can't be truly happy anymore or at least lately so the only happiness I get is fake???? I have to push the truth aside and push my depression aside so that I don't hurt myself and hurt others and make it harder to bare. aNd IVE BEEN DOING THAT BY WATCHING PEWDIEPIE WOW!!!20;9&/@2$:";"&:$ im not saying that you're the reason that I'm not staying true to what's going on in my life. I personally think that there's a certain extent to taking in the truth and you can't force it all upon yourself at once or it's too much to handle. As for myself and my current situation, the solution to what's causing me to be depressed cannot be achieved or seems unlikely for me to accomplish and I am aware of this. This leaves me with a very negative feeling I can't get rid of. Because when I'm trying to be happy I just remember it's all fake and that I still look back over everything I'm going through and I know I'm still depressed. That feeling doesn't solve anything either and I know it doesn't. Maybe forcing yourself to be sad solves things on situations seeming temporary, but as for what I am facing now, all I can do to help is force myself to get my mind off something and force myself to be "happy" even though I know something is really wrong. Anyway, thank you for our content. It's really helped me. I watched a whole bunch of other youtubers and they don't help because they have a sense of fakeness to them that only makes their truth more visible. Thank you for putting in the effort to discuss things and entertain people. Thank you for not leaving and sticking through everything. To me, you're very smart and loyal and mentally strong (if that makes sense). A lot of people chose not to see that for reasons I can't seem to understand but think about how you've succeeded so much in YouTube because of who you are. Not just because you are entertaining and have a fun sense of humor but because a lot of other people would've given up with how much hate they'd receive and how consistent your uploads have to be and the content and worthiness of an upload and dealing with the policies of YouTube and rumors people have passed around about you and the stress of coming up with something new every singular day and even then staying true to yourself and seeing what's most important in what you do and not getting caught up in attention or money or views. I just need to point out how much you've done for people and how far you've gotten. You truly deserve to be known as the best youtuber. Even more. aNNYWAY I GET SIDETRACKED REALLY EASILY. Thank you Felix for everything you've done for all of us.
yah same the in between part who cares what people would feel about me too I think about the inbetween thing to like how hard is it to get to that its ass rapping I try to make goals too when it happens and I get like rapped in the ass like my ass is on the floor haha dead hamster it made me weak too
I am shoked that 'forced positivity' issue never appeared in my mind. For some reason, being positive became an equivalent to being normal, which is not normal at all. You're so damn right, Felix, and I'm so grateful for this video. I have a friend who needs to watch it, it will help her a lot.
i personaly think that your new videos are way way better,bc i think you are exploring your true self,and not just giving a fcking fake image of your self to fcking entertain us,ty for the deep thoughts. 😉👏😏
I avoided this video for so long because I wasn't ready for all that Pewdiepie truth, but now that I have, this was an amazing video(surprisingly really funny) and I 100% agree with everything you said. Happiness has always been overrated.
this wasnt ment for people with depression but as a person with depression this helped alot. thank you.
How dare you talk about Roman he just likes enjoying life no one can blame him
I can really relate to this!
Please play Happy wheels one more time 😎
Idc how crappy his new content gets, he's my favorite youtuber for keeping it real.
Happiness is a strange topic. I think cultures that value happiness and focus on pursuing/maintaining happiness or thinking that happiness is the "norm" is unhealthy. I think if we change our mindset to the fact that life is just a harmony of emotions, sadness, anger, happiness, or even more complex emotions such as feeling bittersweet, we will all be a bit more content. I think the fact that we see being happy as the norm is what makes depression and mental illnesses so hard to discuss. I mean if you think about it, isn't sadness what makes other more relatable rather than happiness? I think that it is important to teach children emotions. That way one day we can all understand our own emotions better and one day boys will be able to cry without someone telling them to "man up." One day people with depression won't be judged or be dismissed and be told that they have nothing to be sad about, making them feel further depressed and guilty for the way they feel. One day we won't judge those who seem like they have everything in the world, but is in actuality unhappy. And maybe one day we will all be more compassionate to others. The hedonic treadmill effect shows that someone who just lost their leg and someone who just won the lottery will eventually return to the same level of happiness. Emotional highs are just short-term, emotions are fleeting, they come and go, sometimes they linger for awhile. There isn't a one normal feeling. All feelings are normal, we just have to understand them better. The worst thing you can do is pretend you are feeling something that you aren't. Stay authentic and live your life with all the great range of emotions that you have because at the end, it's what makes us feel alive.
Ksi watches this
Ksi: lets force depression.
wow . Hes more intelligent than he would give himself credit for. love the way his mind works . awesome video
I totally agree and I'm tired of seeing forced positivity on Instagram as well. Some people only post positive things to make others envy them when everybody goes through similar crap because we are all human. Without sadness and pain how would you know what happiness feels like...it would just be your baseline, your normal.
Ummm...I love you?
help me bro help my channel
what do you mean bro I did not understand you
Speaking of unhappy, I'm really unhappy that so many people who only know about Pewdiepie's so called "racism" are never going to see videos like this where he shows just how genuine and compassionate of a person he is.

IM NOT OKAY!
MCR reference for everyone who doesn't know
I agree that forced positivity can be harmful suffering from depression my whole life growing up people would tell me think more positively till it's second nature always look for the bright side to things, eventually it became so hard to do that Things went bad fast. Fortunately the people around me have changed and learned from their own mistakes and research on mental disabilities and even just how the mind works at all has come a long way in my lifetime.
I completely agree. To the point that any comment I would make would be quoting the video. I hate fake ass people. Be real. That's what I can respect.
I super agree whenever something bad happens I blame myself for not being positive enough. I'm going through something now and that's the thought I've been having. I needed to see this.
Why does PewDiePie pin random comments?
the smilemore thing bugs me like no if ur having a bad day have it let it out and be happy when your happy like don't just force a smile and be like yeah i'm happy
i used to think you're just a sweet blonde pie made of stupidity and humor but after this video i changed my mind, you have a good opinion and i agree with everything you said...
I actually stopped watching movies because most of them lack genuineness and they're ridiculous and all about image so i turn to youtube because i was looking for something simpler and spontaneous people...things i can relate to...anyway i think you're qualified to talk about these topics and i am interested to hear your opinions
that's what my t-shirt says... StopTellingMeToBeHappy
Agree to a larger extent with a lil disagreement..
i agree with you i feel being / showing happinesss all the time is really stressful cuz you cannot make ur content happy going for the rest of your life not only on youtube but in any social media websites -_- sometimes you feel like "im just lazy" but people tend to not accept it very essily i guess.
I like your videos better now, they are more natural and honest. I would rather you tell me a game is crap so I don't go spend money on it so thanks!
best period in pewdiepie
poodie i know lsd is so great
I'm more attracted to negativity rather than positivity, I thought that was normal 😂😂😂
I totally agree with you Felix
attack on firebenders
this is one of the most honest things i've seen and it's freaking true and I freaking love him
I agree and it took me 2 years to learn and accept that. Adding up to this, psychologists are useful and insightful for medical psychological related issues but they're like shoes, you have to find someone that fits. Giving them a chance was the best decision I ever made. (Not trying to push psychologists in people's faces, just sharing my personal experience.)
kenny the cockroach
THIS IS SOME REAL SHIT BRUH HELL YEAH
Fantastic video. You are absolutely right.
If you asked me, "How are you"? I would say, "Oh, hi PewDiePie. I'm pretty fine, Bro"... "Pretty fine". Splendid!
Omg my whole time on YouTube has been a lie!
