we need to talk… (depression)


[Captions by Judy V. at Y Translator]
Hey guys! I’ll be honest. I don’t really know where
to start with this video. So, I’m just gonna let my camera
keep rolling, and I guess talk. I thought this would be a pretty
important video to do just because school is coming up, and a lot of you guys
have started school. I actually wanted to make this video
because a lot of people have been either tweeting at me, messaging me,
emailing me about mental health issues, like either anxiety, depression,
and I know a lot of you guys who are messaging me, either your stories,
they’re telling me about your anxiety or depression, or just
things going on in your life. I know a lot of you
guys are really young, and when I think about myself when I was that age, I was never depressed. I never had anxiety up
until a few years ago. I didn’t know what
that was like back then. Growing up, I had anger issues. I would fight with my Dad a lot. I would get into fights at school. And I guess thinking about it back then,
I never thought it was depression or anything, you know,
wanting to hurt yourself. Like the first time I ever wanted to
hurt myself, I can’t remember why. All I know is I was crying. I was in the car with my Dad,
and I took it pen, and I was just trying to like cut my leg, and then soon after,
I realized this is really stupid. This is such a terrible
way to cope with something. Hurting myself is not
going to do anything. It’s not going to fix my situation. It’s not going to make me feel better. It’ll make me feel worse. It’ll leave me with scars. It’s just not the way to handle it. I’ve had people in my
life hurt themselves, and it just makes me so sad. Like whether it’s you guys, or
whether it’s a friend, family, whatever. It seems like it’s a thing
when it really should not be. Like when you’re sad, depressed,
anything, I don’t want any of you guys to think about hurting yourselves. The best way I can put it is
that it will solve nothing. And this is coming from somebody
who has struggled with depression for a while now, and I feel like
I’m finally at a point where it’s getting better that I can talk about it. I’ve always kind of avoided it just
because I didn’t want to talk about it or I’d make jokes like cover it up. There have been multiple times where I
thought like I can’t do this anymore. I can’t take it. It would just be easier for me,
and everybody else if I was just gone. There it is. That sigh. I should have started
the video off like that. But yeah. What I wanted to say is
that that will not solve anything. You might be going through some
struggles right now, or your life might be absolutely terrible. You might have some things
going on at home, at school, but I want to tell you there is
nothing, absolutely nothing that you can’t overcome. I know it sounds so cliche but you have
the power to completely 360 your life. Change it. Have any kind of life that you’d want to
have, and I feel like with depression, what got me out of it was having a goal,
was working towards something, and keep having
something to look forward to. At the times where I just wanted to end
my life, I didn’t want to live anymore. I thought about my family, my
friends, you guys obviously. There are people who love you. In the end, if you hurt yourself, you’re
only gonna hurt the people who love you. I do care about you guys. So don’t think that, oh nobody
cares about me, because I do. There’s people that tweet me
and interact with me every single day, and one day, when they
stopped doing that, I noticed, and I asked, like I’ve message fans, subscribers before like,
where did you go? Is everything okay? Like I understand some people
like grow up, get a real job, where they have to work. They don’t have time
for YouTube and stuff anymore. But I do like to think
I know you guys like that. When I was in high school and college,
I didn’t know what I was doing in my life. I had no idea. I had no idea I was gonna do YouTube,
and that would have 11 million subscribers, and like if you told me that back then,
I would just laugh at you. Even if you told me two years ago
that I would have over 10 million subscribers, I’d be like, you funny. But now looking back at that,
I feel like I can do anything, and if I can do anything,
you guys can do anything. Like I got a message from a 12 year old
who said they were depressed, and that they wanted to end their life,
and I just thought I can’t imagine somebody that young is
having such a hard time. Like nobody should feel like that. There are so many people that
would miss you if you were gone. There are so many people that love you,
and your life has basically just begun. I’m old as hell compared to you guys. Like I’ve been through a lot. Like I just want each and every one
of you to believe that things do get better, and I know I always talk
about that, and I always believe that even in the worst
times, you have to believe that things will get better for you. Because they will. I never thought my
life would be like this. I never thought my life would be so… I don’t know how to say it, blessed? I feel like everybody has the power to
change their lives however they want. So if you’re sitting here
thinking, oh school sucks. I hate this. I hate my life. My life is terrible. You’re at home situation might be awful. You hate your parents,
there are kids that bully you in school. Well guess what,
school doesn’t last forever. You’ll be out of school,
you’ll be out of your parents house, you’ll move out, you’ll be able to do
whatever you want, have your own car, drive wherever you want to, go wherever you want to,
live wherever you want to. Your situation won’t last forever. You can change it however you’d like. I want you guys to look forward to that. So if you feel like you have
nothing to look forward to, you have so much to
look forward to in your life. There’s probably a lot of
things that you want to do, whether it’s move out, travel the world, have a baby,
start a family you know, like all that. I remember when I was
living with my parents, me and my Dad would fight all the time. I was grounded almost every single day. I had to sit in my room. I wasn’t allowed to go downstairs. Until my Dad went to sleep, then I
could go downstairs, and eat and do things, and it was just so miserable. I hated being at home. I like couldn’t wait to move out,
and do my own thing. When I got a car, that was the best. Like it felt like for the first time in my
life, I could go out and do things. I could do whatever I wanted. Not really, but you know, it’s way
more freedom than I was used to. I don’t really want to talk about anxiety
because I feel like I haven’t– I haven’t learned to get past that yet. I mean, I wanted to tell you
guys that you’re not alone. If everything gives you a panic attack,
I want you to know that I feel you. So many things trigger that. I’ve never had anxiety my whole life
until a few years ago, until so many terrible [bleep]
started happening to me. Starting with my dog dying,
and then the car accident right after. Other things in the blink of an eye, your whole life can
be turned upside down. I think that’s what really
triggered it and started it. All I know is Yoga help,
breathing exercises help. You know it sounds stupid
but in yoga, they taught us, connect your two fingers like this. Go like this. Breathe in with your nose. So [bleep] stupid when I do it by myself. Like usually we do it in a room
with a bunch of other people, and you don’t hear yourself
because everybody else is saying it. But yeah, breathing exercises do help. I know stupid as it sounds, it does work. But y’all know me. Yeah. I just wanted to let you guys
know that I care about you guys, and I don’t want to
see do anything stupid. I want to see you be very successful,
and live your lives, change your lives, live it how you want, and yeah. So, always remember things get better. Said it ten times. I’ll say it ten more times. But things, they’ll always get better,
and it might get worse again, but they’ll keep getting better
and worst, and better. I don’t know, I guess that’s what life is. Life is just a series
of good and bad days. But you know, live for the good days. Good days are the best part. I feel like there’s more things
that I need to talk about, but I can’t really think right now. I’m sorry for making
this a dedicated video, but I feel like this needed to be said. And also with school,
I know there’s a lot of issues that happen at school. But online high school is now a thing. My sister actually does
it, she’s still doing it. So I don’t know if that might be for you. Also just drama, I know
there’s a lot of that. I know there’s bullies. Bullies will keep picking on you
until you stand up to them. They’re only gonna keep
doing it if you’re just going to keep quiet and take it. But if someone is going to bully you,
I’ll give you my full permission, go on! Go on, sis. Is this inappropriate to take
a Starbucks break because I’m thirsty? Like this guy in high school,
he was talking [bleep] about me on Facebook. He didn’t think I would go up to him
the next day, and punch him in the face. But guess what I did? Never said anything about me again. Nothing mean at least. Other than that, he’s a pretty swell guy. But anyways, that’s all for today. I hope you guys enjoyed this video. Is it even enjoying or just staying woke? I hope y’all stayed woke
throughout the– I feel like I’m using this in the wrong context. Hope y’all enjoyed this video,
and hope y’all stay woke. And make sure you subscribe,
and join the wolf pack, and hit that like button in the face! I love you guys. I truly do. I want y’all to live y’all best lives. Thank you for watching. Bye guys.

  1. Thank you for telling me that it's just a stage some and my friends are suicided and depressed and we had a nice teacher and we would have crabby time and talk about our day and our struggles at home and it was very nice ?

  2. I’ve had social anxiety when I was very young and I’ve had problems where I wanted to end my life but it’s gotten better and now I’m learning that if you hurt or try to do anything to hurt yourself that’s going to make everything worse and if you have any issues just know that things are going to get better so you shouldn’t start doing things when you don’t know the outcome.Try and stay positive.

  3. Yes people please don't do anything to hurt your self this is not going to do anything. Be strong it's life, your going to have to go through it. People that passed away will give you depretion,and also being bullied, will want you to end it all. Just remember be strong. Don't think that way,the thought will go away. Just move on.

  4. I'm 16 now. I told my parents 4 years ago and I have struggle much longer than 4 years and still struggle. My therapist gave up on me about some month ago.

  10. i’ve had depression since i was 7…..

    i’ve attempted suicide but failed. i wasn’t hospitalized, but it… scarred me. emotionally. i used to cut. i got bullied all throughout middle school. the way i got through my depression was:

    i thought of my little brothers. we didn’t really have a good relationship, but i still loved them. whenever i cut, i thought about how it would affect them. eventually, it got so overwhelming that i stopped.

    then, i found an anchor. someone who i knew cared about me. for me, it was my friend. she was going through the same problems as me. once i realized that SOMEONE out there cared about me, it helped SO MUCH. so just, find you anchor, latch on(but don’t be toxic, and don’t be too clingy), and TALK TO THEM. trust me, it really helps.

I know why the breathing exercise works… it's because you're so focused on your breathing and what you're doing and what you're saying that you don't think about your stress you think about working on your breathing working on your whatever working on your what you're saying and you're not focus on anything else you're focused on you're breathing and what you're saying so there's no point in thinking of anything else you thinking of what you're doing and that is that exercise so you should try it

  33. I dealt with depression for the past two years. I used to have panic attacks so bad, my dad would keep out of school. Anyway, when I was with my little cousin (he is nine) watching TV, he told me he was experiencing depression and anxiety. It broke my heart for him to say that. So my message is to not be the reason that someone is in pain, be the reason that someone has hope.

  34. She has a heart this helped me a bit in school i have problems with kids I’m still having Sucide thoughts but I fight them thanks for helping?

  35. I've been feeling depressed for a year now, and I was talking to my friend, for an hour, I told her I wanted to kill myself. I was really thinking about it. She is like a sister to me, and about a week ago, I made the stupid decision to cut my thumb open. It bled, and I regret it. She almost cried, and would stop asking me why I did it. After a while, I kinda, sorta stabbed my leg with a pencil, but not on purpose. Idk why I'm pouring my shit into a YouTube chat, but it makes me feel a bit better

  36. I'm crying rn thank you so so much
