2017 - My Toughest Year On Youtube

2017 - My Toughest Year On Youtube

Show Video

20:17. What. A weird year but. It completely. All, over the place mixed bag of a year a youth it felt like it went on forever for. Me personally, not. The best year I'm just gonna go out and say it it's probably the worst year I've had on youtube since I've started making videos and, I'm, not saying that to exaggerate I'm not saying that to over blow it or anything like that it. Has been such. An emotional roller coaster of a year for, me personally if you had a great year I am more than happy for you I'm so glad that you had a good year and I hope 2018, is an even better year for you but, me personally I can't, end this, year without, shaking, some really weird feelings, without shaking, some really weird mentalities. And demons that are stuck inside my head so they just kind of need to get out there and leave. Them in 2017, and move on into 2018. But, let's. Let's go back through. The year and let's go over some of the good things that happened the first big thing that really happened this year for me was that I moved I'm, in a completely, brand new place I'm in my own house I was, able to move across. Across. The water it wasn't that far but, I still managed to move my entire life. From, one country to another country and that. Is so, huge for me the only other person in my life personally and closely, who had ever done that previously. It was my brother my oldest brother Malcolm who I loved, dearly and who was giving me so much great advice over this past year and it's just Oh since, I started YouTube he's been so encouraging but he. Was you know the person I knew who kind of did that and who and you on a personal, level who did that and it, seemed like the scariest thing ever to, do but I finally did it myself this year I I always wanted to move I wanted to go to a different place I did I didn't feel like I was gonna stay in Ireland forever and moving, was a really big deal for me so that's that's. Such a huge positive, part of my life in this, year another really great fantastic, thing that happened to me this year was, that I was asked to co-host the, d23, Disney. Thing, that was going on convention. Exhibition. They, did, a gaming. Site of stuff that they they do every year but this year was a pretty big one because we, got to show off the new spider-man, game we got to show off the new Star Wars Battlefront game, we all know that went afterwards but, and then we also got to show off Kingdom Hearts 3 which was a really.

Big Deal and it, was something that I was so excited to do and so excited to challenge, myself with because I've done some hosting gigs here and there but this is a really big one and there. Was a lot of pressure involved but it was such a nice challenge to, be able to get my teeth into and just sit. There until 2:00 a.m. in the morning, talking. To these people back and forth and how we could craft the show into a cool, thing and just giving in my own thoughts and receiving. Their feedback and everything it was a really cool experience and I'm really grateful, that I got to do it and I really want to do more stuff like that going forward, and. The fact that we got to like Kingdom Hearts 3 was by far the biggest thing going on me personally spider-man, was the biggest thing I love Kingdom Hearts as well but a new spider-man game made. By insomniac, is a really big deal so, getting, to do that was a really cool experience it was really good practice it was really good knowledge I'm just I'm so. Grateful for that opportunity I also got to go on tour twice, I got to go on my own personal tour for, like three shows just to test out and see how it's going and going into 2018, we're gonna rock, that baby hard and we're gonna really go full force at that and tour it around all over the place so keep an eye out for that but, getting to do that was a really cool experience because I again I was so outside my comfort zone I had, never done anything that I had like written material, for that we've worked on and had a structure, to and a theme to and all these different types of things there's a lot of pressure to just get up on stage on my own and carry, a whole show for. An hour and a half and it. Was obviously, a lot, easier to do because all of you guys were there some of you guys were there and, just. Knowing that you guys were out in the audience and you were there to see the jacksepticeye, show really. Eased my nerves but. I was still very scared to do it and I'm so glad that I did and I it's, again it's another challenge that I overcame, this year and I'm very glad I did and I it was such, good practice, because also right, after that I got, to go on the ready player three tour with the game grumps all around Europe and, very. Rarely do you ever get to tour Europe in general just as a facet. Of life but. Here I was doing it because I played video games in my bedroom one time and it, ballooned into this huge thing that I'm here now talking to this gigantic, community, of people and it. Just blew my mind I think it was when we got to Norway I was kind of just walking around the fort and we. Visited, a fort by the way I was. Just walking around I turned to the people I was like no weird that, we all just loved video games and we started making videos on them and, all of a sudden now we're touring you were up and we're here in Norway like I never thought I'd ever got to go to a place like Norway, ever and it. Was just such a surreal experience and, I'm so thankful to. Be. Able to do my own tour but to be able to do that tour with those guys as well I have. Grown so much because, of that I have gained so much knowledge and, so much experience going through those events that, I will likely never ever forget and I'm gonna be able to utilize them going, forward into the tour's next year and they.

Were Just such a cool experience to be able to do I'd be able to meet all you guys and be able to be part of something that, would meant so much to so many people. Blew. Me away and the last really cool thing that we got to do this year was, the charity stream that we did a couple of weeks back there, the, jacksepticeye. Holiday, special, I think, it was that the full title of it I think so we, did the charity stream for Save the Children and that was an uproarious. Success. That. Went so goddamn, well and I'm so pleased with that I'm so proud of it and so thankful for everyone who was involved in that I made a vlog talking about this already but I'm so thankful for everybody who was involved in that I'm so thankful for my friends who came out to be part of it and I'm just so proud that this thing that I had an idea for came, to fruition and, it went so so, well I I really, wanted this to do well and it blew away my expectations you guys were phenomenal thank you for, being a parent of that and for being part of such a memorable, thing and literally. Changing, so many children's, lives and going, forward I want to do more stuff like that as well but that. Really was a great rounding. Off to what was already some. Really cool experiences, that I had this year but, this. Has been the most trying. Year. That I've ever gone through. Why. The. Most trying year that I've ever gone through mental. Health wise there's, so. Many things that happen. This year and so many stuff so much stuff that goes on behind, the scenes and so much stuff that you don't get to see or I can't talk about or I wish, I could talk about but. For certain reasons here and there it's just it either won't go down well or it won't sound good or I, don't, know lots. Of different things that go on that just. Have really worn me down this year and I. Didn't even realize, that it was such a bad thing until. Recently. We're over, Christmas I decided. I was going to take some time off for Christmas I wanted to take time off for Christmas anyway just, because I don't, know it's Christmas time it's it's a time for just relax. Rest. And relaxation is, what I'm trying to say and I wanted to just take some time off for me and it was the first time that I'd been properly, alone, for. A really really long time and when it was by choice a lot of people said that it was really sad that I was home alone and that, I had nobody at Christmas, but I could have gone back to see some of my family I could have gone with her to see her family and everything but, I think I needed, some me time because. As I said so much went on this year that I feel I felt like that I needed to just sit. And think, I needed to be alone with my thoughts for, a little while and then planned on being, like a two-day thing I planned on just not, uploading, videos on either 24th, and 25th or the 25th and the 26th, and then. It. Wasn't until I actually got into taking some time off that, I realized, how much I really needed it that. I took some time off earlier, in the year to go on tour but, that wasn't really a break it was. Just it. Was still doing work. To a certain degree because you were still out performing, for people you were still out meeting a bunch of people and I didn't really get some time alone, to, myself and I, value. My a long time I hugely value being able to just sit and reflect. On my own thoughts and work some stuff out in my head when I was here alone and I, wasn't making videos I as. I. Said I didn't realize, how much I needed that until it actually happened, because. So. Much stuff had been going on this year and I don't think I realized how much it was wearing me down, until. I sat and, thought about until I just had nothing else to do to distract myself with because. Anyone. Who knows me knows that I'm a workaholic knows that I pour, my absolute, being. Into. The stuff that I do into, the YouTube, videos that I make and sure, a lot, of people would argue well they're just Let's Plays but you don't read how much effort. It takes to be able to do this twice a day every single day at the exact same time every, day to keep up that sort of schedule.

Because. While, you might love doing it and I do I love it dearly I absolutely, adore, doing, what I do it. Does take a toll on you after a while it's. Some, sort of mental exhaustion, some sort of. With. So many people talking to you all the time with so many people pulling out of you all the time in so many different directions and, if. Whenever. I'm making my videos they. Go up and then you guys obviously. Get to watch them and that's such a cool experience to be able to see the feedback from you guys immediately. Some of the best parts of doing YouTube, but. When the videos remain and when I stop recording them like, my day just an end there well. I afterwards. Any. Stuff that I'm trying to do with like Disney or make or any projects, that I'm doing with people in America that's when they wake up is, when I finish making my videos so then all it, is it still work hours like after, that that, you have to talk to people and you have to get into meetings you have to get into calls and you have to organize, all this stuff and go through emails and everything and. Believe. Me I know that these are the most first world problems, that a person can have. There, they're very good, problems to have in a way but. At the same time with so much of it going on all, the, time it. Did wear me down and, because each day whenever I woke up when. I had nothing else to do when I wasn't making videos or, when I because, normally when I wake up I just go straight into my work I go straight into making thumbnails or making videos or something but because I didn't. Have any of that to do my mind my mind just started racing and started, wandering and started doing all these different things that for. The first time I think ever it. Started, to scare me because. I. I. Started. To peruse over, all the things that had happened since, I started making. YouTube videos and, all the stuff that I have either, neglected. Or that I've turned down or that I feel like some. Opportunities, have passed and, that. I can't, do them again or. It's. Hard to put into words it. Was, hard to just get my head around it at all but, all this stuff just started to i sat, there and i was like wait what the fuck is going on why, am I thinking this way what's, what's happening and I. Got. Very very emotional for the first few days and I, kind of just sat in a slump and I, got to a point where I started to the thing I'm like man I'm like do I actually have, depression. At this point am I actually that, upset, am i dad lost. Am i that confused, about what's going on and. As. I said because I didn't have videos. Or anything to run away to and I didn't want to either because. It felt like something that I actually had to confront for the first time and throughout, the year I had kind of felt it I kind of felt like some. Of the stuff I was making, I, don't. Know I felt like I could have been trying a lot, more I felt. Like my. Mental health was just deteriorating. Over the year and, and. It's also because I always, try and say so positive, about everything I tried to stay so, upbeat I tried to say so I. Tried. To see the good in everything, and I tried to see the silver lining and all these things that are happening and, I. Don't. Know I think I was just putting too much pressure on myself to kind. Of do that and I. Wasn't giving myself any. Time to think or to breathe or to just, absorb. And, reflect on, what was going on and over like the course of the year I felt like it was getting worse and worse and then, I think when I actually took the time off and I didn't have anywhere else to run to because.

Normally I wake up and I do my videos immediately, and I just, get straight into work and I work all day. When. That didn't happen I started, to just feel so lost and my brain started to go into overdrive and started to think about all these different things and, that's the first time that that's ever happened to me normally. I know exactly where I am I know what's going on I know where to go I know what to work, towards, but, this time it's it was the first time it, actually started, to scare me because. I. Started. To doubt my own self-worth. I started, to doubt so many different things that were going on with me I started. To go, over situations that had happened during the year and started. Making, them all my own fault in, my head and how. To fix them and. Different. Things it was it was weird and I started to worry then that, I wasn't the same person anymore. This. Is stupid. Because. I've always tried to be upbeat, and positive and. Started, and tried to look at the best in absolutely, everything and try, to give. Off that energy to you guys and pass on that sort of positivity, and I, felt like this year I wasn't, trying my hardest to do that because. Different, things inside my head started to get me down. That's. Where this comes in that's, where let's make 2018. Amazing. Comes in because. I, am. So, fucking done feeling like that I'm so done, questioning. Myself I'm so done worrying, about so many different things because. All these things that I've turned down and all these things that I've not. Pursued, to the best of my abilities or I've kind of held myself back on I've. Just either, been worried about how people take it or I'm worried that I just don't deserve half the stuff that has come my way or all. This stupid. Nonsense. That. Doesn't really matter, at the end of the day that. In ten years time I'll, probably regret not doing them so, going. Forward into 2018. I am ready to kick the absolute, shit out, of this year I am. Ready taking. This like, time off has, completely, reinvigorated me, it's completely given. Me some. Sort of motivation and drive I think not having to do something for a little while has kind of, sparked. Some sort of passion back into me and, trying. To get over this stuff and I'm not of course I'm not fully over it you don't just get over stuff, like that and I'm definitely gonna seek some, sort of help for that stuff next year to try and get. My brain in some sort of working order but I felt, like it was such a good thing to take that time off now. Getting. Ready to go into next year because I feel like my brain is in a good place to, actually start working fully. Properly, and in a much more productive, and positive way again when so as I said at the start of this video so many great things happen to me this year and I, need to focus on those I need to going, into next year I really need to just focus on the good things that are happening make even greater things, happen not just for myself but for this channel and for this community I'm.

So. Motivated, to work so hard the hardest I am, I have, ever been willing to work doing. YouTube because this year has been such a wake-up, call, not. Not only like. For my complacency, with everything but, also just I feel, like I can do so much better going, forward and I will and YouTube this year just in general, has. Been a very weird place to be part of it's very dismal. It's varied hours it's a very sour atmosphere, going around in the platform now because of all the ad pocalypse, and D monetization, stuff and everything that's happening I'm, not going to get into that wholly, but. Everyone's, kind of just down and I kind of saps your creative, energy and everyone's just feeling the brunt of it at this point and. If. If you do YouTube and you do it long enough when you do it so regularly, it's it's very hard not to attach your own self-worth, to your channel because. At, least me personally, you put so much of yourself into what you do I put so much of my own personality, into the videos I make and then if YouTube turns around and it hammers, down in this video that. You've worked so hard on you've put so much energy into it it, is hard not to separate that and not to let it hit yourself personally. But. You can't let yourself feel that way because some of this stuff is just out of your control sometimes, these things happen and sometimes yeah so, it's not going to go the way you wanted to but, that's no reason to not still try your best there's. Still so many people out there who depend on you depend, on you and look up to you that, trying your best it's. Still gonna affect them greatly so, I, try, to remind myself all the time of you guys out there who watch this content, who watch this channel what's YouTube in general that. All. The stuff that's going on behind the scenes that it. Doesn't really affect you, all that much it, affects the youtubers, you're watching, but. At the end of the day I still want to try my best to make. You, proud and to make good content, for you and if, stuff like that does happen I'm gonna deal with it and we. Can talk about it when it does happen but, again, I'm not gonna let it stop me from trying my best going forward and I'm. Oh goddamn. Ready I'm so, pumped for, this year I have so many things in the works I keep saying that but I'm like, everything's, kind of in place now and we're ready to start getting moving on it the tour is one thing I have some other projects. That fucking. Really wish I could talk about but, I don't want to jinx them and I don't want to ruin, them either so I'm gonna I'm they're they're going to happen when they happen and I'm. Trying to make them the best that they possibly can, be and I think you guys are gonna be really impressed with them and you're really gonna like them as well but. My god I am going to give this, I'm, gonna give the. Fucking energy, of the Sun back, into the world this year I'm gonna, be such, a beacon, of positivity for, everybody out there involved. I'm gonna, try and motivate myself, motivate. You we're all gonna, make this a fantastic, year you out there as well all of us together are. Gonna make this such a good year this, is our year, this year is gonna be my fucking bitch I'm, gonna kick the shit out of everything that's happening this year and the most positive and most glorious, way possible, I'm gonna move forward into this year, leave all that sour garbage.

Behind Me and just make, this a fantastic year, for myself, and for everybody out there who is joining me on this journey as well who is part of this wonderful. Fantastic, community who has given me so much over, the years and I'm trying my best every, day to, give back and this. Year I'm sorry if I let you down in that regard I am, going to try so much harder next year so I got four pillars moving forward four, pillars that you need to remember going forward into 2018. We're going to focus on the good we're. Going to keep that that, mentality going that, the littlest good thing that happens to us we're gonna focus on that and let that be the spark inside us for this year we're going to keep our PMA we're, going to keep our positive, mental attitude going, forward this year sure, some stuff might get us down and it's okay to feel down you don't have to be a hundred percent happy all the time nobody, is nobody's, perfect. You're allowed feel sad but, just remember that, let's. Keep focusing on the good after, that that after we get sad that there is still some light left in the world that we can work towards also, self-care. That's. Something I've been neglecting from myself for so, so long and as. Evidence. From this vlog and this year and the break I just took it's, so, incredibly, important, you need to take care of yourself not. Only physically. Through, exercise. And eating well or any of that stuff but also in here this. Is probably, the most important, thing that you have which. Is your own mental, health and if, that starts to deteriorate everything. Else stems from that and that will deteriorate as well so you got to work on that whether, it's personally. What do you sit down and you work on yourself, and you find. Some sort of positive. Thing that you can work on even meditation. I think they all sound cliche, they all sound dumb but they work and if, you need to get professional help, then look into that as well because. And I'm gonna be doing that this year I'm definitely, gonna start going to see a therapist, this year just because I think it's important to be able to do it's. Better to be able to figure, out how to overcome hard obstacles, when they happen with the tools necessary. Rather. Than having the higher things happen and then trying to unravel it afterwards, because, that is such a harder battle to overcome and maybe. You're there already it's still worth seeking because. Just like just. Like you clean your house just. As, they say in Rick and Morty just like you wipe your ass, looking. After your own mental health is such. A good. Cleaning, mental. Process, to do so take care of yourselves out there in every, way shape and form and the last thing that's on my list to keep focusing on this year is working. Hard working more working, in such a productive, way I'm. Not gonna so, many times I'm like, there's, deadlines coming up or there's a convention coming up or there's, all these things that I want to do but I'm so worried about my schedule or something. Everything's. Everything's. Off the table this year or everything's, to play for I'm just gonna work so, super, hard in the. Most productive way that I can in the best way that makes the most amount a sense for me so. There, you have it that's, that's 2017. Over and done with, let's. Make 2018. Amazing, let's make it a fantastic year, I'm sorry that this video is so goddamn long but I had a lot to get off my mind and I have a lot that I just want to leave behind and. Let's move forward into the new year and let's. Rock it okay. Let's anyway, thank you guys so, much for watching this video and happy, New Year and I. Forget, what the rest of my outro is right now but punch that like button in the face like, you. Boys and, if. I go wrong. Shh. Thank, you guys I will see all you dudes. A, lot. Of persons no TRO, but, yeah, 2018.

"If you do YouTube and you do it long enough and you do it so regularly. It's hard not to attach your own self worth to your channel" - Yep, I started feeling this myself in September and I stomped on that feeling and reminded myself that I'm doing this for fun.

Hey dont worry about it, take a breath.

OHANA means family. Family means nobody gets left behind or forgotten.  And the Jacksepticeye community is the biggest family.

So so so important! Thank you so much for doing what you do and what you plan to do. Not only for YouTube and your fans, but for yourself! Keep on keeping on! You are loved!

And here's the revel...

I lost my new and supportive family to a idiotic choice by me to see my shit mum again because she guilt me and i lost my adoptive family... Luckily my friend is letting me move in with him and his family in 2 weeks. 2017 sucked for me if it was your year then i hope 2018 will be better for you and me lets stay strong

Thanks bud. Needed to hear this today

Sean it’s not stupid. I am the same way and I think the best thing for you right now is to just relax and realize how many people look up to you and love you and would never think otherwise you helped me Get through a hard time and now I think your viewers like me should help you and never ever think you’re not worth something because you’ve helped me so much more than you can imagine you help me fin get through a hard time and now I think your viewers like me should help you and never ever think you’re not worth something because you’ve helped me so much more than you can imagine you help me Not commit suicide and I am grateful and I just wanted to say these things hoping you’ll see them even though you’ve never seen my other comments from what I know but we all love you

Sean, if you need a break, take it. Honestly, I'm just speaking for myself, but you are so important. You're so amazing and you're keeping so many people from slipping into depression, including me and some of my friends. If you became depressed or mentally unstable, I honestly don't know what I'd do. You're literally keeping me alive and SO many others, but you need to take care of yourself too. We love you Sean. We're here whenever you need to talk, even if you're just venting into a camera. Make 2018 better and keep yourself going. We all love you, just keep going.

I tell my parents that Sean is my life. They asked why I love him so much. I showed them this video. Yeah. They understand now.

I have never come across such a hard working and genuine youtuber. You can tell from his content that he gives it his all and he really is thankful for his subscribers. He never takes us for granted. I wish him all the best for 2018 and the years after. I love and appreciate him so much.

please take care we love you no matter what, you're an amazing person and you've been doing so much for my own mental health and others own mental healths, yours is as important

What a Video!!!

Jack I no, We love you and none of this is stupid.A lot of people including me have felt what you've felt and it broke my heart seeing you cry because you are my role model.You are such a special and amazing person and never ever let anyone tell you diffrent.

2017 was my toughest year for my life. I hate 2017. Comment if you hate 2017.

Jack you're an absolute sweetheart. Don't over-do it, nothing is more important than your health. Keep doing what makes YOU happy!

We all love you jack

Were sorry 4 putting so much pressure on you Even if you don't think you have put the effect in making ur vids We do and on the behalf of all of us a huge thanks jack

You are burnin out! You need to tone it down.

This resonates with me so much and the bravery you've shown is incredible. Depression is so hard to put into words, it's easy to blame yourself for the feelings you have or feel guilty because there's people out there with "worse" problems, but believe me speaking up is the best thing you could have done and do not sweep it under the carpet now, don't ignore it. I wish you all the best, from someone who is going through something very similar, I understand. I've sung professionally for 10 years, I was told I was special and I believed I was going to achieve so much. Things haven't turned out that way and I've ended up quitting the one thing I loved because of the pressure to succeed, the judgements people made of me, etc. It's hard, I miss being confident and believing in myself but I'm working on it. Look after yourself, take as long as you need and come back stronger, that's what I'm hoping to do.

Ah fuck, now I'm crying.

This was sad but so healthy though. It’s so great to run through the problems and the great things and how they affected you and then set out ways for things to get better. I think we all will learn a lot from that!

Sean reduce the amount of videos you are making, it’ll make it easier on you and it’ll help keep your mental health healthy, we will all love you the same keep going Sean

Worst year of my life jack

Sounds you shouldn't work as hard as before to me, just saying.

I live in norway Come to trondheim

on your proper tour will you come to Australia ?? please im a big fan and it would be awesome to come out to see you!!!!

When you watch the video Until the end It will get so emotionally Happy For Jack So lets this year for jack the Best OK EVERYONE WITH ME!!!!! THIS SEPTA That was a phrase fform sparta

I get that you want to work even harder. I did that after getting released from the hospital I was admitted to bc of burn-out/depression. But I realized that working even harder won't make up for the time "you lost" while taking time off to focus on yourself. If you work even harder, burn-out's gonna hit you even harder bc you're just repeating the same old mistake over and over again. I know you love us, your fans, but we'll be fine no matter what you do. If you only want to upload one video a day or a video every other day, we'll be fine. Please don't burn yourself out, you're human too and deserve to take time off, to take care of yourself. We love you, thank you for everything you're doing for us.

We Will just leave the bad stuff of 2017 *in* 2017. We wont give them life in 2018!

It feels good to just sit down and be depressed and think about life when you're always being positive and optimistic the majority of the time. To think about things that you've never really been 'allowed' to think about. After that, you tend to go back into the optimistic person you always are, except feeling so much better and refreshed. It's nice.

Thank you, Sean, for being you. You always give so much for this community, and if you ever need us, we are here for you. *gives you a virtual hug.* We care about you, man. (Wow...I sound really cheesy...sorry about that. Heh =_=; ) Anyway, thank you so much.. ^_^

Meh.

I don't usually comment on videos in general... But I just wanted to say that, even though nobody's gonna read this, I almost cried watching this video. It felt way too... I don't know, "real" ? I really know what you're saying, Jack, and what you went through, and I know perfectly how hard it is. This comment will get lost in the sea, I guess, but I really need to say it : if I watch your videos everyday, it's not only because you're a good youtuber, but more importantly because you're a good person. I hope you'll find peace for your mind. Even you, person who reads this comment ! (even though nobody's reading it XD)

Thank you

I HATED 2017 so much bad stuff has happened on YouTube and me

having moments of self-doubt is normal. just remember where you came from. 2018 is a game changer for me as well.

Nothing happened to me except getting an eating Disorder and depression. No biggie

For the longest time I believed that my optimism and positivity were some of my best traits, so when I’d get sad or have negative thoughts I’d start verbally beating myself down in my thoughts and ignoring it as well because it terrified me that I would lose my best personality traits and then I would just be a useless burden after. I had to accept that being down once in a while is absolutely human and it’s not spreading negativity if you tell others about your issues and thoughts, it’s opening up which will bring friends closer. If you bottle it all up and pretend the negativity doesn’t exist it doesn’t go away, it builds up until the dam bursts - so please take care of yourself more, practice some self love and don’t be hard on yourself when you’re not being productive. we’re human, not productivity machines. hope 2018 is better for all of us!

Take a break Sean, whenever you need it. We all will understand. Your human you need to be a human and take a break. Your so amazing in everything you do, even if you made one video a year we would watch it a hundred times because we know that it could have taken everything in you to make it. Take a break, figure everything out and then jump back in, don’t let life become a routine take a breather to gather yourself and then figure out what’s happening. We love you no matter what!!! Stay strong!!!! Take this year by storm and win we’re with you!!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️

All the love from the east coast of Australia my dear friend! Keep it going. You deserve all that you have! Heres to an amazing year :)

I'm glad I'm not the only one who's going to try to make 2018 an amazing year.

Hello Jack. I’m a graduate student and I’m writing a thesis on Mental Health! You’re video is amazing and inspiring. I hate to ask, but would it be okay to possibly use your video for my thesis? I believe it will add depth and show another side of mental health with an actual person. You can always say no and I will respect your wishes. Thank you so much for the constant support you show your fans. As a fan, we love you!

Same

Jack I see many rainbows in your future

Can someone pleases explain to me what the story is with him and Felix?

Don't worry jack i had a shit year too

Jack you look so depressed and sad I want to wish you a new year and more time to yourself jack we are here for you... : )

Your videos have moved me in ways you couldn’t imagine. You helped me with getting through my mental illnesses with your positivity and love and I don’t know how to thank you. I wish you the best in 2018. You deserve it

Jack I am a 46 year old man who watches you with my 14 year old daughter when I have access to her. I now watch you by myself when I feel depressed or alone as you always make me smile. So I just wish you the best in 2018 and I agree focus on the new and let the past drift away. Thank you mate for helping me through my hard times and I wish I could shout you a beer or two to show my appreciation. Your a champion mate thank you.

You should play more horror games

I’ve always looked up to you for the past 2-3 years of YouTube and find you as the most amazing and understanding person on YouTube that I’ve known by far. Most my friends don’t understand why I enjoy watching your videos calling me “childish” or “inappropriate” because I enjoy watching them. Your are the funniest, understanding, kindest and most energetic guy that I’ve ever seen. I enjoy every video and always happy to see your face filled with energy and I’m like “yeah that’s the guy I’m looking for” I enjoy watching you Sean, and I know you didn’t have the best year and its totally fine, we have our days and moments in life. Believe me I’ve had years that weren’t the greatest but yeah 2017 was merely weird to me from going to 8 grade to high school. Anyway you deserve to relax and clear stuff that’s on your mind, and enjoy what you do. It’s great to make all these decisions that you plan to do and I’ll support you all the way!! I’ll be there to help you make 2018 an amazing year. Don’t let doubt cloud your mind and don’t keep things inside you cause we’re all here tho for Sean no matter what situation your in all of us are with you. I don’t know if you’ll see this comment knowing that thousands of people comment here, so I just wanted to get this out since I was watching this video and felt touch by it. Anyway I’m glad your on YouTube because you inspire me and I look up to you!

Same here jack

2017 sucked. That’s not what matters though. We are all moving forward best we can. Sean, this was brave. I hope you can continue moving forward but not just for your fans and your channel, but yourself. It’s easy to ignore all of this and just focus on the content but this was so goddamn brave. Thank you Sean. This inspired me in so many ways. Don’t over work yourself buddy. :)

Sean good luck in 2018

2017 was such a bad year for me as well. I want you to know that we are fine with you taking time off, because you’re our absolute rock! Just do what you love, and kick the shit out of everything like a boss. You worked hard. c: You did well.

For real you can only be an angel, hope you have the best year ever and so do we all! And yeah let's kick the shit out of 2018!

Ugh Sean, I know you wanna kick the fuck out of the year, but please, for the love of God, take time for yourself every now and then. Don't overwork yourself. Overworking yourself is a straight-away into that spiral of not thinking about your own well-being and whatnot. Just please keep that in mind, Sean. You are an amazing person and bless you for being the way you are.

pause at 2:08 Jack looks drunk and tired XD

Try not to fuck it up in 2018 *Logan Paul releases a video laughing at a dead body in the suicide forest*

Your hair..... OH, OH GOD, AAAAAAAAAAAA

your hair!! it is black i love green

Nope horrible and depressing year for me :(

I think this is one of my favorite videos you’ve done. Although I wanted to be able and reach out when you said it’s stupid! It’s not stupid and I think you sharing this could help a lot of people.

Man u you are a grate person and me and my little bother watch every video u expire me and him to do grate things i hope you see this bud happy new year. Man

He makes me happy

Jack just know that u are my favorite YouTuber and u are my favorite part of my day and I just wanted u to know that and I'm happy for you and that u believe that and that u know u can make that happen but know that we all believe that u can take a break and relax and u are an inspiration to the world. The Amazing thing about u as a YouTuber is that u are always positive and u don't get in any beef with other YouTubers that's why I love your channel so much you are so awesome and super funny u make me laugh every time I watch u thank u so much for being u.

Feels my dude. Always impressed by your ability to stay positive

Let’s make JACKSEPTICEYE GREAT AGAIN (lol you are already great) love from everyone

Jack, from time to time you mention how your videos help people, often times I think it’s silly but don’t discredit those people, in this video you’ve helped me, thank you so much for your personal sacrifice because you help, I know my struggle and pain may be completely different from yours but to see the light that you project helps me lift my head High, my head was not a safe place either for the most part of 2017 which also made me cling to the things that keep me sane, I was scared to see how 2018 will go, but seeing how you can get up from the floor of wallow gives me so much strength, Thank you Sean Jack And to whomever reads my proclamation -Jack (my real name)

Idk if you’re even gonna see this but, working hard is important but working smart is even more important. I don’t fully understand what it means quite yet but I do understand it a bit. My band director tells us this constantly and I feel like it’s a very important thing for everyone to know. You can work your butt off but if you don’t work smart you won’t get anywhere. I’m still learning about life and how things work but aren’t we all? All I’m saying is that while working hard is important, don’t forget to step back to see what is best for you and others around you. Work smart!!

U got this jack have a good 2018

You got this Sean

Jack honey, you've worked hard for everything you have. Never feel bad about putting time aside for yourself, you can always do that and we will all till be here for you. I've been watcing you for almost 3 years now, which definatley isnt a long as some other people, but you've still helped me out so much. You were one of my only reasons to be alive back a year ago. Please take care of yourself jack, your channel is still amazing, everyone has bad days, weeks and even months. But we'll all understand hun :)

one step at a time, it will b ok .

awwww dude, if you need to just stop for a while and work out your own head then just do it, take a break, work out what you need to then go again...we'll be here, we can wait for you to sort out the background stuff

Even after all the hard times, you still come out positive. Love you so much man ^-^

Personally i have had a bad 2017 but hopefully 2018 begins with a bang and stays that way through the year. Keep up the great videos mate!!

jack, please dont forget that you come before us. if you need to step back and cut down on videos, or even stop all together, we understand. i think all of us would rather see you happy than making youtube videos and being miserable

We are all here for you whenever I feel personally that Sean ( spelling...) is some one who listens a lot to other people but never really talks about how he feels whether it be good or bad ( idk it’s just what I feel) so I am very happy you are talking about your feelings You are an amazing person I wish the best year ever

you got through this year still kicking, so kudos to that. to be able to face the fact that you’re struggling and to talk about it and try to get help is incredibly brave. none of the problems you discussed are dumb or stupid, they and your feelings are valid. we will all understand and support you through whatever you need to do to help yourself, even if that involves less videos this year or more breaks to avoid placing too much pressure on yourself or to always stay positive. we’re here to all be with you and each other and work towards making 2018 all about positive mental attitude

Awesome self reflection man! 2017 was a hard time for me too and i had to finally realize I wasn't happy about many things in my life. I plan on taking things (music, fitness, YouTube) more seriously this year!

Thanks for telling about going through last year, hope you have a great year for 2018

F*ck yeah Sean, let's kick 2018 right up the a-hole!!!

#Hugs4Sean!

One more thing, please tour Canada sometime (Edmonton, Alberta). My son would lose his mind!!!

We love you so much Jack!! You are worth everything to some of your fans. You are an amazing person and you are so positive for us. We only see how you are positive but at the end of the day you are still a human being and have problems like all of us so negative feeling are inevitable sometimes. We believe in you and you will succeed in anything you put your mind to! Live well this year!!

Dude, please take a vacation. For your health. You need the time to be human, and reconnect. That is to say, don't worry about the videos for a week.

Yeah 2017 is also the year that you really changed for me, i don't Know how i can put into words how and why you've changed it's just i used to sit here at 8pm and 9pm waiting to watch your videos and i always enjoyed them so much and you've changed i Often still watch your old videos and i enjoy them so much i just wish that it could be like that again, not that it have anything to say to that it Know that it might not have to do anything with this video but yeah i just wanted to throw that out there and i just hope i can get back into you this year

wow, I'm so sorry and believe me when I say I know what your going thru. I hope you have an amazing 2018! Love yourself and be positive Sean!

I've seen this example in a video about emotional stress and it really struck me: if you lift a glass of water, it's not a big deal, right? If you hold the same glass for a very long time, it doesn't matter if a glass of water is a light burden, your arm will still hurt. It's not the size of the burden but how much and for how long you can endure it, sometimes we just have to remember to put the glass down to rest. So Sean, and everyone, don't feel ashamed to stop sometimes, relax and charge up for the next step

Take some time to yourself, Jack. :D We're here for you.

Jack, no matter what you do, we'll be happy and proud for you. And we all know with your attitude, this year will be the best year ever!! And thank you Jack, you saved me!

You're such a relatable YouTuber/let's player and it's nice that you take time out just talk to us like we're your friends in vlogs. Hopefully 2018 is a better year for you!

LET´S GRAB 2018 BY THE HARRYBIGCOCONUT BALLS IT HAS!!!

you like boy cock jack sorry but you do jk i didnt watch the video

Can I just say

Can you give my a shout out

I'll always remember the four pillars , especially making 2018 my bi**

But JJJJJACCCKKKKK. I wont be as smart as those watching rick and mortyyy halp me/

We are with you Jack you are our inspiration just like we are yours Thank you Sean

Thank you for letting out your problems with us Sean, you seem like a very intresting person to have a long chat with wish i could meet you. I feel like there is so few people who wants to focus on the positive side of things nowadays. It is great to see that there is still a few ones left that want to focus on positive side and spreading positive energy. Thank you

Jack it's ok. We are here for you. We are your family. We are not here to criticize you. It's ok if you want to take a break for some time. We want quality not quantity jack. So plzz don't be so hard on yourself and be easy

Youtube isn't hard lol I can throw a top notch thumbnail in 10 minutes or less and throw a top notch edited video together in less then 3 hours

I'm super late to this and you may never see this but I'm so proud of you Jack. Your videos have been a light for me in recent years and I think the recent break did you good. Your smile is back. Mental health is so important and I'm glad you're talking about it. For you (or anyone reading this) you're right: self care is so important. But it can take many forms. Sometimes it's making an important phone call, or finally getting up and showering. Sometimes it's pampering yourself and treating yourself gently. We all deserve this. And Jack, I'm gonna make a suggestion you might not like. Consider taking days off again in the future. Work hard, sure, but your mental health is the most important thing. Don't burn yourself out. What you were doing is called ruminating and I often get stuck in it when I have nothing else to distract me- it's why your videos are a godsend. You have so many, and you're always putting out new content. Consider taking a break every once in a while. We love you and support you

You are one of the hardest working youtubers. Just look at the schedule. I'm pretty sure your subscibers are well deserved.

Rip agp

Sean , 2017 has been a bad year for many people including me... If you need a break you take that break and we will all understand you. 2017 was hard but it's over now. Let's all make a new beginning including you Sean , a new year , a new 2018!

I did not mean to post that...

Sean, 21

You are doing well Jack by thinking a bit on what is going on in life but one thing you shouldn't do is ask yourself if you have a depression. I know for a fact that you DO NOT have a depression. I know that your life might be repeating a lot of stuff in your life but if it's what you like than just get up and say "FUCK YOU WORLD". I will always love you Jack for all the work that you do and I want to follow your footsteps no matter what

Dude you will always be Jacksepticeye the best and funniest legendary youtuber. I know this isn't close to yhe problems that you are stating nut I have the problems that you are listing because of school. Be strong remind yourself that everything can be fixed. Do not lose hope in all of the Bullshit that the world spiys at you. Stay you Sean the bouncing baby boy I know

*virtual hug*

Jack, you concerning me a little... not to say bad, I really like your hope for next year, but pls don’t forget that you need a source of energy :) Pls, make time for an hour walk each day (preferably in the sun), so not at night Sound too easy and stupid and I don’t know if you do, but I find it a waste of time It’s clear that you overdose your brain with work and always try to GIVE energy do, skipping the parts where you GET energy from. The daylight can give lots of energy, so walk and let your mind wander like a jackseptic bouncing ball! ^>^

Why did u dye ur hair

Jack is the definition of humble.

It's one o'clock in the u.s

Waiit.... Pewds number 1 hater is malcolm

Hey I’ve not seen my dad for 8 months, this has been the most dogshit year of me life

It is ok jack

Jack if you saw this it would make my day. This video heavily inspired me and made me laugh, and just made me happy in general. I'm motivated and even though its 3am and cold as fuck for the next few days, I'm gonna try and do my best this year. I'm gonna try and get up earlier then fucking 5pm lmao and punch the day in the face LIKE A BOSS. And I'm gonna try and learn more, and i'll put up positive notes everywhere. Moral of the story: This video is awesome and I'm ready to kick the shit out of 2018 just like you! LET'S DO THIS!!! LET THIS YEAR BE KNOWN AS THE POSITIVITY EPIDEMIC!!!

Sean, your feelings and self care are in no way stupid but in fact the MOST IMPORTANT so please take the time to rest and love yourself! We will still be here! You have given a lot of care and advice to fans through your videos and it's amazing how far you can reach even through a video! Your attitude is a blessing and we hope you take care!!! :)

#letsmake2018amazing !!!!

Sean, even if you felt you couldn't give your very best to us, know this; for many, many people (myself included) you helped us through our own self doubt, even into self hate, and a lot of people would have been lost without your help. Personally, I know my story is no worse than the next, and I haven't gone through what someone else has, but I, for many deep, horrible reasons, I was ready for death and still am, and I can't afford help, so for me you are my help, and I couldn't get through 2017 without you. Thank you, Sean, for everything.

Hell, you've got 17,000,000+ people you're supporting and every one of them are supporting you too, weather or not you know or realize it, you're a hero Sean. Happy New Years, man!

I’m really glad you took some time off. I love you Sean, i hope you feel better. We’ll be here for you whenever you need us, I’m sorry things get so hard sometimes, just know that 2018 is going to be a much better year, and you can get through this.

we love you Jack*

Jack works so hard every day to make us happy but he works so hard that he barley has time to relax and not think about anything or worrying about videos if wants a break he should get a break because he really deserves it I love Jack we are always here for you we support you every step the way we love you

I want you to know, Jack, that you deserve every single good thing that has come/will continue to come into your life. You are a friggin' AMAZING human being. I can't believe how humble you've been through your youtube careeer, and I applaud you for being a positive role model for many of your young viewers. I think it was a great idea to take some time for yourself and think things through. Everyone needs time to reflect on tough situations, etc. and doing so will help you face more tough situations in the future. We're all here for you. Thank you for pouring your heart out to us. You will never know how much it means to everyone that watches your videos.

Sean we all understand please if you need to take time for yourself do it please I hate seeing you like this

I love ya Jack and no matter wut I'll watch ur vids

Jack, me and you both. But good thing your here. If you weren't here then I would still be sad. You've helped me so much and I want to personally thank you because you help all of you're friends and you've helped me SOOO much and I think your the best person ever and thank you so much for helping me :)

Jack you need to change the mentality of working for us to working for yourself

yyyyyyyyyyyeahbwoiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii

You were the best part of dxp

Jack, truly, thank you for making this video. Its helped me put perspective on myself. You by far the best youtuber ive ever come across, and i so glad i did. Look forward to your future videos.

Just upload once a fucking day jack

Sean, you make videos twice a day every day and I’m sure that is tough. Your core fans are with you and if you need more time off is 2018 it is fine. You help so many people and are a superhero behind the screen. Let’s punch 2018 in the face!

Awesome hair

2017 it was the hardest year I've felt like I'm depressed and I'm just why am I doing this but I hope 2018 will be amazing! In glad I get to spend this year with Jack and everyone

Also wonderful advise and reminder. Thank you.

We love you Jack! Mental health is so hard to overcome... you’re so strong but don’t forget to care for yourself!

I WILL FUCKIN' DOUBLE FIST THAT LIKE BUTTON! I'M SO FUCKING HYPED!

that double fisting comment was not supposed to be as dirty as it ended up sounding... dammit

Your character is so fantastic and selfless, it broke my heart to see the tears fall from your eyes :( I am proud of the journey you’ve taken - know that you can never let us down! I am excited for your 2018, but feel entitled to a break every once in awhile, we love ya lots mister man!

I know what you are/ we’re feeling because that is exactly what I’m going through now. While I was watching the video I was crying because it feels like you get me... when no one else does... you are there, you are there for me and everyone else on this channel... thank you so much Sean...

I'm having one of the worst times of my life and I have been severely depressed because so much is going wrong that I cannot do anything about, so thank you, Jack. I appreciate you breaking down the pillars, too. I'll keep them in mind.

Jack your allowed to feel emotions, you have your own mind don’t worry about what we say or do or think you are amazing and you’ve changed a lot of lives don’t worry your doing great don’t give up you take breaks when ever you want no ones controlling you. you do what ever you want to do and it’s ok.

I stray away from your channel sometimes because not every video interests me which hopefully is understandable but I still would like to share how much I appreciate your genuine attitude. I recently (a few months ago) started going to therapy and it's helped me so much, I reccommend! I'll vow with you to kick 2018's ass! Here we go!

hey Sean, I started watching you around last October and I absolutely love you and your videos and 2017 has been a completely shitty year for me because I'm 14 and I was diagnosed with depression and anxiety this year and I have hated my self and hurt my self mentally and physically but you are the reason that I am still here because you motivate me to be more positive and you can make me smile even when I am crying my eyes out because I think I'm not good enough. but this year I'm done with it so I'm working on myself and I'm going to try to think more positively about my physical appearance and my ability to do things. anyway I'm rambling but I want to make the world better I love making people happy and I'm ready for 2018 and I believe that we can change the world because you have changed mine and I want to help others feel that same happiness. now let kick the shit out of this year and show it whos boss. P.S: happy new year

Jack, whether or not you feel like you have to, please please please take care of yourself. While you spoke in this video, I heard a lot of my own doubts come out of you, and I want you to know that you have to seek your own health above all others. You are the most important to you, so please take off time. We all care about you so much, you are worth so much to us, and please don't force yourself into anything. Ok that's all thanks for reading :)

Jack, you're an amazing person, especially for making this type of video. You laid your soul bare and it says something about where your head is at. I love your videos and I see all the energy you pour into each one. Don't worry Jack, you have 17 million people who all support and care about your well being. If you ever feel down just reach out and you'll find 17 million people who will jump for the chance to help you. Love ya man! :)

Your mental health is more important than anything, like -luckily- everyone says in the comments :) I hope the community sends you enough positive energy to feel a little less pressure, and that therapy can help you get through this. The best wishes to you Séan

I know I’m late but Sean I feel you should know that everyone here fucking LOVES you, I think for some people your the center of their universe! You’ve helped so many people through their problems you forgot and doubted your own... Nobody would hate you if you took a break here and there to recollect yourself and take a break. I cried when you cried and I feel terrible for what you went through no one should ever doubt their self worth I’ve never been where you have but you fucking go and make 2018 an amazing year! And take breaks when you need to because everyone needs a break every now then Jack I love you! We ALL love you and never forget it.

Me just realizing he lived in Ireland

"Take care of yourself kid, 'cause someone really cares about you." :) ♡

Jack we all love you you have immense self worth you provide joy to so many people who are sad before your videos and they have problems in their lives but after they watch your videos they become happy for at least a while we all love you you are so awesone..!

im sorry i called you jack instead of sean

My husband died, so yeah, I think I had a worse year than you.

I'm glad you were able to take the time off. There will always be regrets, because you just can't do everything. I only found your channel over the last few months, when you said you weren't your best, but I've found it to be so uplifting and just, nice, to be able to watch when I have the time. They've made me happy.

I pledge to take your three goals for 2018 as well. I think they are perfect.

Jack, I know how you're feeling. I was diagnosed with depression a few years ago (its hereditary). I have those thoughts almost everyday and have to take medication. you should take a brake from youtube to have fun, and if it gets worse then you should see i doctor. I have faith in you.

Jack, unlike other big youtubers, he gives a shit, he gives a shit about is, his "fans friends followers subscribers" What I mean is that Jack cares more about me that my own parents, Jack gives a fuck about us, I know it's not a cliché way of saying and sorry But Jack/Sean or however you want to call him, is more like a father than most actual parents Thank you Jack/Sean for just being you, being awesome, Thank you from the deepest part of my blacked out heart, thank you you so much Let's all make 2017 jealous of 2018

I'm halfway through and crying oh my god... This is so relatable and that's why it's sad.. And seeing Jackaboy sad and crying oh my god it breaks my heart

HUGS!!!! HUGS FOR JACK!!!! EVERYONE GIVE JACK HUGS! JACKIE NEEDS HIS HUGS!!!

Happy new year. I watch YouTubers and there are lots of people I like but you are my favorite because you are very funny and you seem like a real person that I can relate to and you couldn’t ever disappoint me.

Im sorry i havent been paying attention what country did he move too?

2017 was a shit year for almost everyone. Let's try to make 2018 a lot better. Hope everyone has an amazing year

"THIS YEAR IS GOING TO BE MY BITCH!!!" - Jacksepticeye 2017... Or is it 2018?? WHAT IS THIS

I'm glad to know 2017 wasn't just a hard year for me but for others as well..I thought I was alone but this video opened my eyes.Depression was kicking a lot people's asses and negativity went like wildfire

I'm not crying! Your crying! *Sniffle* Fucking asshole.... We all love you Jack!

We are here. NO MATTER WHAT! Love you Séan. ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

Jack, I'm sure you already know how much we all love you. It's okay to feel down like that and it's also okay to strive to better it! I know you love to work but try not to burn yourself out too much : ) we all know you enjoy spreading positivity-- but i hope you know that even when you're not pushing it, you're still helping everyone to be happier. Good luck in 2018, Sean!

We love you so much Jack. Thank you for this - it's so incredibly helpful for me to see how someone can get through this kind of thing because it's something that has made my life very very hard for a long time now. It's obviously heartbreaking to see it happening to you too but I will live by your resolutions this year. We can do this, together. ❤

I hated 2017 I hope u had a better 2017 than I did and have a better 2018 than 2017

The only way you could let us down, is by not taking care of yourself. Please remember to take a break now and then, you will not be able to do anything if you fall ill. I hope that everything turns out alright for you soon! And lastly, thank you for making me smile when I have a bad time.

2017 vas a nutcracker for me. Has anyone seen the news this year. HOLY SHIT!!!!!!

We need some merch with the Jacksepticeye logo going "FOCUS ON THE GOOD" or "MAKE 2018 AMAZING"

Well said. I'm 43, my 10 son who's 10, shared some of your videos with me. I am so glad that there are channels like yours out there. You have brought much laughter to our home, thank you. Keep following your heart and you need never worry about your path, you are genuine and compassionate and will always shine wherever you go. Your family of 17million is loyal for good reason. P.s. Love your outtro, hope it never changes!

We all love you Sean. We truly do. Take care, and we're here for you! ^_^

Wow, what a transparent and honest reveal of your life and heart. One thing I have appreciated about you for the last few years is that you can be trusted to be an honest person. You let us see the man underneath the character. Getting burned out is a very REAL THING, no matter what your life is like. May God give you the strength and peace you need deep inside yourself, and also the healing you need. You have a fanbase, and many of us love you, man.

Jack thank you thank you you are such a friendly amazing person not any adjective can describe how great you are when i watched this i got emotinal cause its like im listening to a friend and just love to reach through screen and hug im sure we all would HERES TO AN AMAZING 2017!

I really love how honest you are with us. There are a lot of Youtubers out there which I feel like say empty words, but when I watch your videos I can literally feel your heart with every word you say! I think you should take some you time more often if you really need it because all of your true fans would and will understand. Thanks for helping me trough the hardest of days I really hope 2018 will be a good year for you and your family! Much love ~ a fan

Keep reading to see in off-topic Close-up look: Jack has dark green in his hair now...

"I could've gone with her to see her family." Some of the viewers who aren't caught up must be wondering who in the actual hell he's talking about.

Just realized Sean is real life All Might

I know I'm like 4 days late on commenting, but Jack... Why did you hide something like this from us? It hurts me to see that you had those demons, and you've also managed to hide them from all 17 million of us, it really hurts me. I watched this the hour it came out, it was a few hours before new years here in LA, and when you said you might have depression, I didn't give a shit about anything, not even the wine I can drink when new years came. I just sat there and I cried. You his it from us for so fucking long, and we didn't have a clue. I should have seen SOMETHING, I've had those demons for three fucking years, but I didn't have a clue. I don't care if this gets lost in the sea of comments, I just want to put this out there. I'm sorry that us people who deal with those demons on a day to day basis didn't see what was happening behind the scenes, and we weren't here for you, and I wish that we were, and I can't speak for all of us, but I'm sure some of us feel the same way. Please just tell me that you're going to be alright, I don't want you to hurt yourself or for these constant voices to hurt you. I might sound Obsessive or creepy, but I just want you do be okay, and I hate that I didn't see that you weren't.

Oh my god I wrote an essay. But at least it's its for a good reason, and Séan, please take time off whenever you need it, because we all want you to get better.

Q do you swear any more?

I know exactly how you felt Sean and I want you to know that I’m so sorry that happened to you and the reason why I know how you felt because I had a lot of stuff going on my life at the time but you were the only person I could get me through it and thank you so much for that you’ve helped me so much and I hope you have a better 2018 -Cleo

Hey Sean I know exactly how you felt and I’m so sorry that happened to you and I hope you never feel that way again and you will have a better year I know it

I fucking love you man. Please notice that you dont HAVE to be super positive ALL THE TIME. You are human, you feel emotions. Man we're all going through stuff and so are you. I dont think you let any of us down. I love you so much man.

can i hire jack to come to my house and get my life on track because i need some fucking help

I fucking hate Logan Paul now.

Please do a tour in buffalo or Jamestown New York or Erie Pennsylvania

I'm from Norway :D

Love you so much buddy.

I sorry to hear about your year, and I hope 2018 treats you well!

I have been a LONG time viewer of you and this channel. Never have I commented. I did not feel like I needed to because I enjoy pretty much everything you put out. Its fun, light, and entertaining. I know this video is not new but I just watched it and I wanted to say something even if you dont see it. You are a human, like all of us. I have been through severe anxiety and depression and it is scary because you dont know what is happening to you. I do not know your mental state I do not know you personally but I know what you put out on social media. When your brain races that can be anxiety and it doesnt even have to be triggered by something. It can just happen. Especially if you havent given yourself time to think. You seem like a fantastic person who cares about your fans and the way you come off. Those two things alone show what type of person you are. Thats why you are so successful. You care. I guess my point is that you are not alone at all with the situation you were describing. Just remember that. It will always lighten the load on your brain. Also never feel like you have to do something just because it will make other people happy. Do what makes you happy. Some people may not understand but thats not your issue. I hope this rambling helped in some way. I guess I just know where you are coming from and related to it. Humanity is what makes life woth living. Knowing that all of us are not perfect but we can strive to be the best that we can be. Thats all that counts. also sorry this is a novel.

Jack/Sean, it's okay man, you moved away from your homeland, it's not wrong to have some of those feelings of being overwhelmed when a big change happens; you'll bounce back when things begin to settle a bit!

I had an awful year too don't worry, my demons are still there and probably will never leave the burning hell that is my head

2017 was a shit year for me too mentally your not alone

We can all blame EA for how crappy 2017 was, you gotta make micro transactions to make it “better”

I think you should take more time for yourself. We're still going to be here. Not everyone needs constant simulation, constant video's. Ask yourself where you want to be; ask yourself if you will regret decisions made now, at a later time in your life. You'll always be growing, which doesn't stop you from being you.

I think I know exactly how you feel. I've been going through this mental overdrive shit for 3 years now and I quit college because of it 3 times, I can't stay focused, I get extremely anxious about the littlest of things and it just paralyzes me. And just like you, now I'm trying to see 2018 as a new start. I'm hoping I can get myself to calm down, be more disciplined and work towards my goals. I hope you have a wonderful year and everything will fall back into place.

We sometimes forget that it is ok not to feel ok.. we are not superhumans. We are human and you are so reflective, i deeply respect that. Thank you for opening up and please don't be so hard on yourself. You make so many people happy, but keep in mind to make yourself happy as well. I wish you all the best and awesomeness in 2018 :)

JOIN THE BROLEGION!! oh, btw Jack do the best a gr8 man can n plan ahead

Nope i lost someone 5 days in to the new year...

2018 will be your year jack!

It was tuff for me too

Oh Jack I just wanted to hug you so much when you were upset in this video. I have felt like this so much last year. I wish I could turn my mental attitude around like you have and look forward but I struggle. Thanks for helping me through my hard times I hope everything gets better for you.

I'm glad you're going forward with your own revitalized natural outlook on life, Sean, but just be cautious in your pursuit of making 2018 the best it can be that you don't over-exert yourself to an even higher degree than the previous year. Best wishes from Canada!

Sean, we care for you and love you and want the best for you. Don't allow regrets to get you down, it's in the past. The best you can do is work towards doing something that's maybe second best or something that will also make you look at it and say, "Wow. We did that and it was great." You are allowed to feel sad and allowed to take time to think and rework the way you want to do things.

i almost cried seeing jack destroyed like that i feel so selfish and sorry for him

I just wanted to give him a hug and tell him it would be ok.

"Let's rock it!" ... OMG HE'S DOING POWER RANGERS IN SPACE 2 :P

2017 is a year where a lot of great important stuff changed in me. My life's still shit and I also still have depression, but I became an even better person. I have to say that it's possibly one of the best years I've experienced, perhaps THE best so far. It sucks it was so bad for you and others, and hope they and you feel even better soon.

Jack don't kill ur self ye r having why to much negativity ur teetering on the brink of death and it's starting to scare me

He isn't going to kill himself and he is better now... Did you even watch the video?

Please please PLEASE take a week off again sometime this year. Go on a vacation. Sit on a beach and sleep for a week in the caribbean or something. Most people have built in paid vacation time at their jobs. The fact that you've been going at this pace for like 5 years or something is insane. You've more than earned time in a hammock drinking something out of a coconut. It sounds weird, but as someone with depression I find a change of scenery to be really useful for getting myself out of a funk. Sometimes it's as little as letting someone drag me out of the house to run errands with them, sometimes it's more like "I'm going to go spend a week in another country to regain my sense of awe with the world." And if you find yourself having trouble not working at ALL, make a travel vlog. Record as you go, have Robin edit it when you come home. You got this, dude. We're rooting for you.

I haven't watched your videos all of 2017. Hearing your voice again was like saying hello to an old friend. Maybe that's why 2017 was awful for me - there wasn't enough boss in it!

YAS JACK PREACH

It's not stupid, Jack. It's not. It's not true that you don't deserve what you have and .. well none of it's true. But that's the beast that is a mental illness. I hope you're doing better and that if you're not feeling good, that you go to a professional. Depression is the flu of mental illness. It can happen to ANYBODY with no apparent reason and the effects of it are so variable from one person to the next. Stay strong love.

I think it was a weird year for everybody my bro

You deserve to take breaks they’re good for your mental health! So when you feel that there is too much pressure take a break; we all love you and want you to be happy and not stress so much

Jack, Please take a break for your own health. We all love you and we want you to be happy. Take a week, take a month to yourself. Travel. Recover and we will see you when you get back! :)

I noticed that this wasn't a stereotypical sad video. No sad music, no sigh at the beginning of the video, no hand reaching out to turn off the camera. Good job, dude.

Jack to be honest 2017 sucked for me too. In the end 2017 was shit hole but 2018 has no WILL GET better

I'm sorry jack I feel the same way stay strong jack WE ALL LOVE YOU

awww jack..... jack youre making me cry too *huge hug* i love you as a person so much. You can be honest, you can be real and i love that about you. Take breaks, you need it dude, we as viewers can take it. We love you Jack!! Mental health things like depression, anxiety, those sort of things i completely understand and and feel for you. They completely wear ya down and change your life in such a scary way, give you irrational fears. But we are here for you and we love you so much!! I love you so much Jack!!!! EDIT: #LetsMake2017AMAZING !!!!!

This hit amazingly close to home...

Hey Jack, I think trying to always be positive can actually be self-destructing. As silly as it may sounds, having some time when you're just sad is actually good because you can analyse what's wrong in your life and because, let's face it, being always happy positive is not natural so it tends to absorb so much effort. I didn't experience that as much as you, but one silly example is that over the past 3 years, I've been living alone so I was able to have some "sad moments" (or sometimes even days) without having to smile or laugh or show to people that everything was ok. But this year I live with 6 other roommates and it's different, I feel like a pressure like I need to always be ok. I mean yes I can have bad moments in front of them but sometimes I have some "periods" when I'm just feeling kind of down (without being depressed), when I just want to stop talking to people and have time for myself to think. I think this is a very important thing to do. Clearly you should be less addicted to your work, otherwise it will consume you. You really should take some real vacation (like at least a month break) to really find yourself again!

Spead the message like a virus over the web! #letsmake2018amazing

Jack you probably won’t see this but if you do please acknowledge this. If you need a break just do it...for the community and the fans just try to relax for a while to recoup. And just remember the fans love ya❤️❤️❤️

"MY AD-REVENUE!" -Everyone

“Let’s make 2018 AMAZING” LOL take a break man cuz my 2018 won’t be AMAZING unless u do.

U sound like sayori

So proud of you! I'm glad you made this video, and glad that you're confronting this and not just continuing to ignore it and let it fester. In this time of people doing shitty stuff and just general bad stuff going on it's nice to have such a good role model. You're really an inspiration to me, and this only reconfirms all of this for me. Make sure to look after yourself, Sean, we all love you and support you in everything ❤❤

Does he talk about how he stabbed PewDiePie in the back? All in the name of his master ? Disney ?

4 of my family members died and my friends dad

Dude.. Sean, seeing you this broken down destroys me, all of us. We care for you so much. You don’t need to drain yourself for us. Take. Time. Off. You need it. We love you man. Slow down. Refocus yourself. We’ll still be here when you get back.

We are all proud of you no matter what Jack! Really glad you got a chance to wind down and have time to realize things. To also come back stronger for this year, can't wait to see how you do this year!!

Jack we are all here for you. If you have to take time off go for it, everyone will understand! We love you Jack!

Who is.... her

2017 was tough for a lot of us. 2018 will be better, we all just have to stay strong!!!!

Dude... I tried at life because of you. And shit worked out. Way better than I expected. I entered and won a huge writing competition. I'm facebook friends with Brandon Sanderson. I'm meeting David Farland tomorrow, (if my heart doesn't explode tonight from all of my happiness, and nervousness, and utter disbelief.) I blame a lot of it on you. You gave me courage. I wish I could send it back to you when you need it, but this is the best I can do. Thank you.

I'm so glad you're feeling better. Dealing with that kind of stuff is really really hard. I'm now hella stoked for this year.

The description of your depression when you finally took a break makes a lot of sense. It’s something anyone who’s had to deal with for example a loved one dying of cancer. You busy yourself with making everything the best it can be for that person and your family and even after the persons pasted you’ve all the paper work and money and funeral to contend with, and this coulda been something you’ve lived with for years. Yet once they’ve finally passed and all is said and done, not by the way when you’re at the funeral cause you’re still on at this point, you don’t wanna make it worse for others....but after. When you’re alone in the house and it’s quiet and there’s no one else to worry about upsetting....that’s when it hits. That’s when you allow yourself the feelings you’ve pushed aside all that time.

Jack. You are so amazing and strong. When you aren't feeling so strong we will be here. We love you so much. Gentle Hugs Sweet Man.

Jack, don’t EVER feel bad for taking a break. You deserve that break! You are an amazing person. And one of my childhood role models. You can take a week long break as far as I’m concerned. You are one of the most happiest youtuber I’ve seen. Take a break. You deserve it. With love Tristan

Pickle

happy 2018 jack and hope its a better year for you!

How can 1000 people dislike this video?

2017 was strange I miss the good old days

Bye guys.....2017.....wwwwwwwwooooooooooooosssssssshhhhhhh....2018...oh hi guys!

Pinn mine

I feel bad for you jack

I wish the famine killed your people all those years ago

dye your hair again plz it seems so weird that you have brown hair again

poor jakie

Thanks for cheering me up

Easily one of the best YouTubers ever. His hard-work, positivity, and attitude have made me look back on 2017 and realise that even if bad things went down, I only went up. Jack, I know you may never see this, but for 5 years, I have been right here with you. Thank you. For making me happy, for making me realise the positivity in myself. For giving me the strength to ask a beautiful girl out, and to be (hopefully) celebrating our two month anniversary tomorrow. For giving me the dedication to change my grades so that all I see is optimism, And for creating such a beautiful end, to such a demanding year. You deserve, all of this, all of us, and all the best. Now, it's two o'clock in the fucking morning and I've got a plane to get on at 3pm so I need sleep. But I love you, and I hope that one day we could have a good conversation, and talk about the positivity in which we hold. Happy New Year, Jackaboy

On behalf of myself and my kiddos that all enjoy your content, please please please take care of yourself, no matter what changes to the channel or content or upload schedule that brings, we will still be here! Really proud of you for posting this talky vlog

Sean- all of your subscribers are subscribers for a reason. We love you. We think you’re amazing and the most positive wonderful being in the world. You’ve helped me get through depression, you make me laugh all the time. You make me smile every day despite being so depressed everyday you were the one that helped me through. Thank you so much Sean. Mental health is important- and your brain is worth everything. If you need a break- please just go. It would be heartbreaking to see you cry again... thank you so much again Sean, you’re the best. I love the crap out of you

I saw you guys at Manchester on the ready player 3 tour Sean and was amazed for a number of reasons. You and the grumps have such an awesome community and the show was so much fun. What impressed me most was how you managed to do such a high quality show and still keep up with your videos. It begged the question, "i wonder how much PROPER downtime sean acutally gets?" This video addresses exactly that. I suppose what im trying to say is i greatly admire the fact that no amount of fame or fortune has taken away your human side and you are not afraid to show it. Respect

Good on you for seeking help too, thank you. We all love you! Take good care of yourself, please please please.

It's Not Stupid at all.........just honest and open

Sean,you care about us so much and we’re people that you don’t even know personally and we all appreciate you and what you do and how hard you work to entertain us at home and your so good at what you do on YouTube and your such a nice person and frankly I can appreciate you always being so positive and upbeat Thanks Sean!

DUDE?! DID YOU DYE YOUR HAIR?!!

OMG I love u Jack you are the best

You've honestly never let me down, everything you've put into this channel is amazing and I'm proud to be a part of this community! You're always so thoughtful and considerate with your words, some may say you ramble but I find it comforting. I always want to explain myself and my thoughts to people because I dont because I worry what others will think. But then I see your videos and how much heart you put into them and it's nice to see someone be so honest and kind with their viewers. I'm going to be trying to make my 2018 better than my 2017 too and I cant wait to see and support you with whatever you do Jack

This is why I like this guy

Jack it's ok when ever u need a break just take one we understand

SEAN, I usually don't comment often on YouTube. I started following you because you were doing vive videos and I was debating buying one (I did). I have been struggling with depression. So I understand what you mean. I have an extremely demanding job and on my way to work I listen to you. Not because of the games you play. 1000s of people play games on YouTube.. it's your attitude. It's contagious. I can count on you for a few laughs in the morning and an upbeat , positive attitude. Thank you for being who you are. You've even inspired me to get involved with film and streaming. It's a stress outlet. Keep the positive mind set and stay the course. You have 17 MILLION people that love you on top of your family and friends. And always know that you'll come out a better man at the end of this. "High Fives all around!!!!" ✋

The Chance of you seeing this is slim but you have a massive fanbase behind you and if you need a break, take it. If anyone gives you crap for it they dont truly appreciate you as a person, not a youtuber, a person . Because thats what you are a human. Everyone needs a break and if you dont take one it will lead to a dangerous spiral which i fell down myself once. So please take a break and dont fall down the slope i did into depression . We love You Seàn

Jack can u send me a friend request on ps4 please because you and me can play on watch dogs 2. my gamertag is hero008brine

This year was a sh*t storm for everyone, but we just need to move on from it

It's not stupid! Thank you for always trying to be your best!

I’m always really depressed but watching your videos have cheered me up since I was in grade 6. So as long as you make this a good year for you, I’ll join you.

Hopefully 2018 is gonna be better smh idk now with the Logan Paul situation

Sean, if you need to rest, take some time off! please. We know how hard you work. two videos a day! There's a reason I watch you. But we want you to REST. we want you to work. sometimes I forget how hard it is to upload everyday, with no break to think. Take time off! Take the weekends off or something, because you need it. your fans would not like it if something went wrong. We need you, but please, we need you healthy more.

The good thing in 2017 was a restart before the end of the year

2017 was a bad year for me to man, so no worries ;w; I had four or five mild seizures, I was sick all year and never found out why until the end of it, I was badly sun burned, I had to have surgery and multiple doctor visits to so many different doctors... I want to say the worst thing for me though was that my Grandfather died october 17th, just four days after I seen him last because of oxygen deficiency.. I mean that's what he wanted, I'm happy that he was surrounded by people he loved when he passed, I'm happy all of our family had gone down to see him the four or so days before he passed.. but I'm mad at myself, because I'm overly quiet, like many people on my grandfather's side, my dad, him himself.. and when he tried to talk to me that last day I wouldn't talk to him, partly because he was really quiet and I couldn't hear him from where I was forced to sit, partly because I felt like if I had it'd have been the last time I did and.. Also because I didn't really know what to say, I only said I'd see him the next week, I didn't even say I loved him and I should have... His celebration of life made it even worse though, because he had a relatively large amount of money to his name.. my dad is a horribly greedy and cruel person, the whole celebration all he did was smile and laugh, it wasn't a happy smile, it was more of a "I got what I wanted" smile, which pissed me off horribly and it still does even now, all these months later.. Idk man, 2017 was just a horrible year. I just have to keep saying that dying is what he wanted, he chose that.. he could have gotten help and lived longer but he didn't want it, because he was suffering a lot and making his wife suffer... He didn't want that anymore.

I think I may have some more issues too

You should of had Pewdiepie’s back you whiny little bitch

Xylea Escalante but he is a whiny little bitch

Jacob Obie Shut up

HAPPY NEW YEARS REVOLUTION!!!!

13:45 he has to cover his face, stop the camera and stop crying. I feel so bad that such a hard working, funny, intelligent, and kind human being would have to go through this. He has affected so many peoples lives in such a good way that we all are thankful for. Jack, know we love you and we will support you through both the good times and the hard times. I personally have been bullied lately at school and felt bad about myself every day, questioning why I was here on earth, if I was worth it, if I was skinny enough. I cried myself to sleep every night. With your videos I have been way happier. You have helped me so much and it sucks that you don’t know how much you really mean to your whole fan base. We love you jack!!! You probably won’t see this but if you do, I would recommend looking at all of these comments when you are sad because they all are thanking you. Excellent work this year, Sean. We love you!!! ❤️❤️❤️

Please Jack, keep taking breaks for yourself. We love you and we will always keep supporting you.

I think we all need a group hug

Not everyone can be happy-go-lucky

This is so emotional. You can take a longer break, we love you and we want what's best for you. Take breaks whenever you want

I believe in you, just like you believed in Steve. Also you should take a break! 2018 can wait. Just take some time to yourself

You got to flow with the chaos and depression I do it it works

i have no words other than i love you. i love you so so much. you are one of the strongest, purest, and most wholesome people i have ever known and i’m so grateful we all have you to look up to and remind us that there is always a good person (you) out there who cares about each and all of our existences. you are a hero jack. you are someone i will always love and appreciate. thank you so much, thank you for everything, especially this video. 2018 is gonna be a good year. i love you.

2017 sucked for me. I hope 2018 will be better..

Same 2017 was classified as the worst year of all during the 2000

We all support you fully and think you are an incredible person. Everyone has hardships in life, what can seperate you from other people is how you respond. I understand how hard you work and appreciate it dearly and I'm sure most of the community can relate.

Thank you so much for sharing this personal stuff with us Sean. I'm more than ready for 2018! LET'S DO THIS!

We love you all the same Sean and I have a rough year and I feel like the same. It has been hard

Sean I wasn’t paying attention and I looked back in time to see you crying. Then I almost started crying

You’re truly amazing. You work hard and you put yourself through so much, you deserve to take any time you need to feel bette about anything that you do. You deserve it and I truly hope 2018 is 50x a better year for you and everyone ❤️

I had to move away from my friends... for the second time. I have no friends this year.

For those demon's inside your head

here, hold my hand, Jack. I know things are going to be ok for you very soon, so I'm not going to be like "oh that's terrible, i hope you'll be ok". you will. so don't worry. and take care of yourself. high five! we all love you and will continue to support you forever!

Get an exocism

"Take a shower, wash off the day. Drink a glass of water. Make the room dark. Lie down and close your eyes. Notice the silence. Notice your heart. Still beating. Still fighting. You made it, after all. You made it, another day. And you can make it one more. You're doing just fine." -Charlotte Eriksson

i loved when it was st. patricks day then i said in the comments that my name is patrick too so i hope you are gonna drink something even if you don,t like it and then i looked on youtube the next day or night then you made the quiz with st.patrick loved it nice xD

I have anxiety and depression and have considered suicide many times haha

Aw Jack, you could never disappoint us. Self care is so so so important and I'm so glad that you're starting to apply that to your life!!!!

this is nut stupid.this is hard. the only reason im not locet in my room is becaus i feel like i need to work harder im im scool and i get 5 and 5+ ( that is the next best grade) but i always feel like its not good enough

I was so sad in 2017 because i was being bullied again and i felt like everything and one was against me. But im going to beat the shit out 2018 i dont care nothing will stop me because last year i was suffering from depression but i dont have it anymore. And i am so happy 2018 is here and im so happy now so im going shove all energy to 2018 and im going to avoid any saddness! Thanks jack

Are jack and pewds still Friends?

I’ve experienced that same type of mind wandering and almost depression before. There’s always light at the end of what seems like a nearly endless tunnel, but there is always light. Just know that we are all here for you, Jack!

you went up 4 million sub beside that i feel bad for you

Thanks for taking the time to share this with us! We love you!

#let's make 2018 amezing

Seans Ramblings of Truth!! Seriously you are an amazing person, you are such a down to earth person I'm glad YouTube hasn't eaten you up and changed you ❤

good on ya mate

Much love and respect to you. Take time for you when you need it and when you want it. We are patient and we will wait you are number 1 priority.

If he had kids I feel bad for them...... Because this guy would never let them quit on anything. great guy keep make sure you don't just forget take care of yourself

same! 2017 was horrible for me. I'm not gonna sit here and list them but damn I am so happy it's 2018 but I'm walking into a new year, nervous. I'm scared to become depressed or suicidal because of everything that happened that really affected me. This is possibly my safe place. It's the one place I can cry without feeling shy. Ik across the screen, your there for me Jack. So I just want to thank u so much for helping me thru 2017 Jack, we, and I, love you

2017 is when my GF broke up with me...

I had the worst year

I've discovered so much negativity in my psyche this past year, but thank God, I'm moving past it. I pray the same thing will happen to you, Jack.

To be honest, Sean, i think you should start making 1 video a DAY, if not, 1 every TWO days. Im afraid doing to much might be to hard on you. i watch all your vids and from this vid know that youtube is hard on you, so im thinking doing less vids a day would be very helpful. Hope you consider this. Thank You!

Good Luck! BE PUMPED!!! LIKE A BOSS!

I don't feel like you have to post every single goddamn day. You should seriously do videos every other day if you really care that much for your mental health. Recording and just sitting at your desk would make me depressed. I would hate it. You need to get out there! :D But if you really need to upload twice every day, do it as you wish.

Jack, I know you played Doki Doki Literature Club. Hell I watched you play it. I can see what’s going on. DONT PULL A SAYORI! YOU MEAN THE ABSOLUTE WORLD TO ME.

It brings tears to my eyes to see jack on the brink of crying. Jack's the last person you would think to be depressed.

Soft bean

Jack.. you’re always amazing you’ve always touched my heart and I know I don’t like a lot or comment much but you always make me smile and make me feel better.. this year I enlist in the military and got injured and sent home and as much as I wanted to be a marine it crushed everything in me and I didn’t know what to do or where my life was going but you’re video made me smile and laugh and you lightened my heart and the load I was baring.. I’m so proud you and how much you’ve grown over the few years I’ve watched you thank you for letting us be with you on your journey this far ❤️

You do not have to be this 'beacon of positivity' to make us proud, we want you to be you, nothing more and nothing less.

Jack, as someone who struggles with depression and social anxiety, the worst thing you can do is run from it. If you need to take more time off to figure you life out or to de-stress then do that. Not a single one of us is going to judge you for it. Everyone feels like this. Even people who try to stay positive. Positivity isn't something that necessarily means that you are its okay to not always be positive. Don't destroy yourself for us or this channel. The community is always going to be here, we will understand if you want to take some time off. Or if you just need to vent sometimes. The healthiest thing you can do is to think about yourself sometimes. I'm glad that the time off you took helped you but don't forget to just take a second and breath (so to speak) Thank you for talking with us

This man right here could probably do anything at all, saying whatever he wanted, and I would love the video with all my heart. There are so many things I could say about how great of a person Sean is but there aren't enough letters in the alphabet to complete the words needed. This sounds like complete flattery but I can't begin to describe what every video he's ever posted has kept me going one more day. There are times where I can't get out of the bed or even raise my head out of my pillows and I just think back on videos where Sean's played games like The Static Speaks My Name and what he says at the end of them, and I'm able to get up and in the least take a shower. The words needed to describe how he's saved my life don't exist. We all love you with all of our hearts Sean, and we can't wait to see the good fortune 2018 brings you

Eso Jack entramos con todo este 2018!!

Sean: Some inner demons... Me: ANTI.NO.STOP

You are such a blessing to so many people. Your positivity inspires millions daily and we are so beyond proud of you. I know for a fact 2018 is gonna be the best year yet. We love you Jack!!!

Don't be too hard on ur self everyone feels bad about themselves or when they shouldn't u deserve everything because ur the one who started this and kept it going not many people can do that feel good

I suffered through 2017 but there were a lot of nice things that happened, that was the year I got with my girlfriend. LGBTQ+ pride! uwu

Jack you don't have to feel this way. Think about everyone you helped like me. You saved me from depression. I used to want to kill myself before I watched your videos. I don't want you to feel or think like that. We love you Jack

Hi JACKABOIIII!

Take a break once a month Jack. You deserve it.

Thank you so much for everything. Opening up and sharing has made me realize that I need to stop pushing everything wrong aside, and I need to confront it, or nothing is going to get better. I'm not sure exactly how to do it, but i'm going to try. Thank you for everything and I hope everything turns out okay.

I think it’s inspiring that he’s literally crying at one point but then almost immediately go to saying he’s ready to kick the shit out of 2018

Jack your feelings aren't stupid you can't control them we all have them. You should let yourself let them out. We all love you

O lord I feel guilty, we’re workin jack to death! We must allow him to take as many breaks as he wants, like the Christmas one, so he isn’t stressed! No more stress! No more stress! No more stress! Ok, I’m done. Jack! if you see this, hi, and you don’t have to work your anus off for us. Just go at yo own pace. K bye bye now.

I now know why his hair is no longer green. The stress has killed his hair! Nuuuuuuu! *red alert* ☠️

You are such a bright light of loving positivity. Please take care of your health and rest as well. Don't pressure yourself in any way. We are grateful for all you do. Needing breathes or times to vent is so important. You are sooooo mature and special and it's totally ok if you ever take vacations or want a brief respite. Take care dude

People forget that mental strain can be more exhausting for your body then physical strain. Your brain is like a muscle and you can't keep working it constantly. It is very important to take some time for yourself to just sit and let your mind process. That is the thing, people don't realize until they actually stop. Especially when you are in constant hyper drive like you have been. Also you say you want to kick 2018 and that this time off helped, but you NEED to take some time to sit and think on a consistent basis! Like I said you don't notice this until you STOP.

Are you and Felix still friends?

LIKE A BOSS

You are inspiration Jack

Sean*

Seán we love you

Whenever Jack cries I cry. I just feel so close to him even though I've never met him. I wish I could dry his tears. We're here for you Jackaboy, we love you!

2016: Hi *is shit* 2017: Hello *traumatizes everyone* 2018: H- Me: BEGONE THOT

[Jack when I saw you crying I started crying because I don't want to see you sad and everything you were saying that was happening to me and it was the worst year 2017 but you make me happy and I know when you make everyone happy you make me happy too and if it's happened again tell us ok were here for you] ~All of us love you jack so don't let anyone put you down and everyone else too ok~ ~We are here together all of us~

Did this vid make anyone cry

I feel this way almost everyday of my life but you have helped me so much. You make it woolen feel so good and you aren’t even thinking about yourself which is amazing so please take as many days that you need whenever you feel like it because you are amazing and you deserve so much so thank you Jack please destroy 2018 LIKE A BOSS!!!!!!!

In minute 18 legit made me smile so much. I haven't smiled so happily at a YouTube in eight months. I love you sean

That feeling when you overthought and went into overdrive during your Xmas break, that’s how I feel for most of my waking life. That drive and work ethic you have to move towards something and know where you are and what you’re doing, that’s what I lack. Approaching university and applications and eventually leaving to live my own life, my mental health is not good. I haven’t watched your videos in a long time but I decided to watch this, and you’re still the very emphatic, smart person I remember who is so in touch with themselves and, as cheesy as it sounds, just humanity in general. It’s wonderful and I wish you all the best. I hope I can also work on myself and my own mental health. A wonderful new year to Jack, and all.

Why'd u dyed your hair back

*collab with pewds*

We all know how u feel so just hang in there and believe in your new year

Please let me echo the encouragement and support of others, have a great 2018!

This is why I love watching Sean’s videos. The fact that he acts so happy always cheers me up, but it’s nice to see him like this too. To see that he is human, that he isn’t perfect and has flaws, too. Sean is an extraordinary person, and I wish him the best for 2018 and everything past it. He shouldn’t pressure himself to keep up with this crazy schedule; two videos a day, every day, at the same time each day. It’s okay to deviate from this schedule from time to time, or maybe even do away with it in general. I’m not entirely sure where I’m going with this, but to everyone that does and doesn’t read this, I hope you have a wonderful year. And to Sean, take care of yourself, and be the best that you can be without pushing yourself over your limit. I can’t wait to see what’s in store for 2018!!!

Don't be upset Jack!!! You are one of the few people I was able to turn to, to watch while I was going through postpartum depression. You should always take time for yourself and not let the thoughts get to you! Thank you for all you do Jack

It seems a huge number of YouTubers are needing breaks after working really, really hard. The year of burnouts. Very interesting.

You just gotta remember that after all the fans and viewers are gone, It will just be you and your close ones. Fame never lasts forever.

I loved it good luck 2018

2017 was such a shitty year cuz my depression got realy bad i was suicidle for a bit other kids was being even worse in school i hate my school and i hate this year i dont care if i am told its edgy saying hate cuz its a strong word but its true on how this year was for me

We love you. Stay strong. Your heart and kindness means the world to all of us. You deserve so much! ❤️

Maybe you should take a day off every week? I know how you feel when you say you were without motivation. Hell, I can't find a reason to get out of bed in the morning or to smile most of the time. You make so many people happy and honestly you've saved me a few times. No one is going to be angry with you if you take time to yourself. 17 Million people send their love and best wishes. You will never be able to let us down even if you try to.  :)  Thanks for everything, Sean.

None of what you just said Sean is stupid. Stay strong, we will always be here for you because even though we never met or never spoke, your fans Sean really do care for you as much as you care about us! That is why don't be afraid to take time off once in a while. We will understand! All together, you and your fans (including me) will make this the best year ever!!! :D

If you still need to celebrate New-Year Happy,new year then

Not his year was the worst my uncle died on christmas

Because I live in the Netherlands adi is 2018 here

Is it still 2017 with you there?

youtube notified me this video right now, why 6 days later? It doesn't make sense, cuz it's the second time I received this notification

I hope you have a good new year and if you see this comment in 2018 hope you have a good rest of your year

I wish you all the luck jack! ❤️

I’m sorry I unsubscribed to your Channel

Wow, I put off watching this and..... this is kind of a time I had where I was in a similar state of mind. It might have to do with video games but I feel it is more on the level of giving it your all, which I was doing before I stopped to think like you Jack. If you stop and think and analyze instead of just keep pushing and pushing further, this can happen. This reminds me of an idea to have some sort of journal that you should write in from time to time to do this thinking then, than working for a long time and then take a break.

It's good to take a break and it's ok to break down because it's a good way the release the pressure , yes you love what you do but I can see how draining it could be doing what you do. I will share with you something Bruce Lee said that I say when I am having a hard time"Adapt what is useful, reject what is useless and add what is specifically your own." You are them same awesome person,we love you and anyone can benefit from therapy

I’m confused when he said we all know how that went with the game (I don’t know what happend)

Sean take time off like a week even if you want! Now we understand we are going to help you all the way

2017 was the worst year of my life.

This is so relatable 2017 was such an emotional rollercoaster Stay strong

Sean, take more breaks like this during the year and even longer ones. Being burnt out is no fun as you've experienced it yourself recently. If you don't upload or work for a period of time just to take some me-time, rest assured that it's not gonna make us think less of you or be disappointed or unsubscribe. You can influence a lot of people and I think making sure that everyone knows that stepping back from a stressful situation and taking care of yourself is not shameful in any way. Self-care is important, so don't neglect it everyone.

Take a break man... Don't turn into PewDiePie, ur the only good one left

Whats wrong with pewdiepie?

Thank you so much, Jack. And stay strong ❤

2017 wasn't a good year for me either my mum had nasty knee injury and my dad has heart problems and I had a operation anyway you need to rake a break relax go on a holiday we all love you just don't worry your awesome 17'555'890 People love you #Make2018Awesome thanks for reading ❤️❤️❤️❤️

Negativity gets the best of us sometimes, but it never lasts. A positive experience will come again. I am a lot like you. I will hold things in and act as if nothing is wrong, or people will see me as such a happy person. However, we are all human and we all experience the same feelings. It's very important that you can identify this, and want to make a change. It's just a bump in the road, and you have gotten over it, Sean. You are strong, positive, kind, an amazing role model, and I can go on. We love you, and we are always here for you. Let's make 2018 the best it could ever be.

A little close there Jack

You should take time for yourself whenever you need we want you to be happy Sean we care so much about ❤️❤️

hey jack sorry for the spelling for the start but ill go on now I been watching you for a long time everyday and I must say this is the most emotional I have ever seen you and it actually made me tear not gona lie but as u sed its ok to be sad from time to time its only human but just remember how brilliant u actually are just playing games and shouting a lot (ovs more but u get it) you have help me personally more than anyone could understand your like that golden spud in a dingy field off carrots making all the grumpy farmers smile when u pop up plz keep it up shaun your the best of the best of the bosses

Dont force positivity dude, just be you

Stay strong jack we love you so much

Jack, you’re only human. You are not a machine and you are doing amazing already in 2018, the charity live stream tomorrow and everything you’re doing to shed light. I’ve been in the same spot. My mental health is like that too. Just remember to stop and take a breather once and a while. You got this dude.

It was a hard year for me because my family dog died and my grandpa died

2017 was the worst year for your Youtube career.For me,its the worst year of my life

Aww, seeing you emotional makes me sad.

This year is gonna be my f*****g bitch!....In the most positive and most glorious way possible! LOL! That's why you're awesome Jack! Yes! Lets make 2018 our year! Much love dude!

Jack we love you man, stay strong, we, your family, your subscribers, we all care for you so much! we wouldnt be here if we didnt care!

JACK WE FUCKING LOVE YOU NO MATTER WHAT

I don't usually comment on videos in general but I have to this time. This video made me cry. Literally.. Not to sound like a jerk but I wasn't crying because of jack, but because of myself... I'm so sorry to hear that last year was so hard for you, in fact it was very hard for myself and I think a lot of other people as well. But the reason I cried was probably the emotional wave you gave me, making me rethink 2017 and leave it all behind and focus on the 2018 and going into it the right way. I want to make it awesome as well, changing my life for the better, the hype is real! And I want to THANK you SO much for it! I don't think anyone or you (Jack) of all people will be actually reading this comment but I really feel so much better after watching this and I'm sincerely grateful for all the positivity and great vibes and energy for the new year! Let's all make 2018 AMAZING !!

You're a good man Jack, You were there when I needed you and I got your back in 2018 mate.

jacksepticeye i have depression and know exactly where your coming from, all i will say look into Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) is a talking therapy that can help you manage your problems by changing the way you think and behave. It is most commonly used to treat anxiety and depression but is also used to treat other mental health problems. ,,, it works wonders for me XD

*HUGS*, maybe take more breaks this year? before it gets too much again

I say this from all of us we love you and we will always love you no matter what you do.if you need a break it's ok because we all know when you come back you'll kick ass one video at a time.

Half way through the video, with tears in my eyes I wish I could just hug you Seán. (and I almost never want to hug someone)

Stay positive have a happy 2018

Jack...you are enough! You don't need to make us proud,we are already proud of the wonderful person you are.I think I know how you feel and that's why I encourage you to take your time to feel these emotions.Just remember to value yourself a little more! :-) Sorry I am a little late to comment,but I was really moved by all you said.Stay true to yourself!

Can you name your new house Artstotska and given little plaque on the wall? Then you will have a glory greatest house.

My brain does that quite a bit. I’m so glad you’re taking care of yourself!

If you break a leg, you go to a doctor. If you break a tooth, you go to the dentist. If something is wrong with your eyes, you go to a ophthalmologist... And if something is wrong with your mental health, you go to a psychiatrist/psychologist depending on whats wrong with you. But people don't. People are fine going to the dentist - it's a good thing, and visible! People can see your teeth, and that's why it's a "normal thing". If you break a leg, you obviously do something about it, and it's not a problem. But saying that you're seeing a psychiatrist/psychologist... Oh hell no! That's bad! People shouldn't know! Or we simply don't go there, because we won't admit to ourselves that something is wrong inside our head! And that's why so many people have mental issues, that just gets worse and worse, until one day you either have a mental breakdown or worst case, take your own life.. No matter if it's depression, anxiety or any other mental disorder, It shouldn't be a taboo to talk about mental illness. It shouldn't be a problem to admit that you have a mental issue, and that you need time off to deal with it, or take medication or therapy. It shouldn't be seen as a bad thing that you're going weekly or monthly to a psychologist. But unfortunately it is.. So yeah! Good thing you're gonna do something about it, before it's too late! And hopefully more people will do the same!

2017 has been one of the worst years for me. I lost 2 of my German Shepherds and my grandmother :(

Jack I'm not sure if you'll ever see this but.. I'm glad that you are finding yourself again and I'm glad you are feeling a little better and I hope that 2018 will be a much better year for You! You are the whole reason I started my channel and you keep me motivated to be who I want to be and do what I want to do!! Thanks for everything jack!! You're amazing

At one point, I really just wanted to reach through the screen, gather you in my grandma arms and give you a hug. But then I kept watching and realized you don't need a hug because YOU GOT THIS!

I️ love how jacks commehg section has and always hopefully will be fully positive. I’ve been scrolling and found almost nothing negative

This video made me so proud of you! In this year, don't forgwt to take some time off to heal, and so you can keep moving forward. Thank you for all you do Jack

Jack/Sean, I don't personally know you and I've only watched several of your let's play playlists, but it's painful to see such a positive, upbeat, and genuine person be affected by something unfortunate. I guess it affects me quite a bit because I know exactly what you mean with invalidating your own accomplishments and putting a lot of blame on yourself for everything. Our own thoughts can be our own worst enemies, and it's frustrating when people would advise you to "just stop thinking that way." I hope this year and the coming years become better for you esp mental health-wise, and that you don't enter into a lot of that black hole cycle. Also, please remember that you're allowed to take a break, Jack. Go on vacation or trips so you can take care of yourself. :)

Jack your still the best and i appreciate ALL the work you put into your videos to make me and everyone happy. Watching this video made me cry but it inspired me so much thank you jack and don’t worry we’re all here for you❤️

I hope 2018 is a better year for all of us youtubers.

Please also take more time for yourself in 2018 too!

Even if you do or you don't have depression (let's hope you don't), I want you to be happy. I hate watching you be sad (sorry). I watched a part of the video 5 times and cried. 2017 sounds like your mind took a year for the worst apparently, which is covering things that may not even be your fault. Let's leave all your sadness and bad things behind and give 2018 a chance to be better. You look and sound like you need it. *LET'S MAKE 2018 AMAZING!!*

I hope this helped you out a little bit

*malcom*

Sean, man, if you need a break, then you take a break. 2017 hasn't been a good year for me either. I've had so much going on and past demons from every year since my birth plaguing my mind, and I know how hard it is. If it's taking a toll on you, we support you. You've gotten me through heard times, brought a smile to my face when every ounce of my happiness was gone. You deserve the same. You deserve so much. If you need more than a week, then you do, and that's fine. It's you were talking about, Sean we're talking about. Not Jack. We support you Jack. Don't think you have to put your mental state aside for us. Take a break. You deserve it.

Dude.... I never cried for a video on youtube, especially not for a "let's player", but you're much more than that. You need some time off, we will keep loving you more and more even if you take a break. This video made me really sad because you keep giving away so much positivity, you don't keep any for yourself. Just try and stay happy, you're the best for me and so many other people you deserve better than this. Thanks

The minute I heard him talking about this, saying he uploaded TWICE a fucking day just made me realize how much work he puts into his content

Part of me agrees with everything that he said towards the end about taking care of yourself, but the other part of me 99% of the time...just doesn't know how to do that. I don't know how to do that. Or how to find that light in life. Almost every light that I've held onto has been blown out.

2016 and 2017 were the most painful years for me personally.

"It wasn't that far..." I've only ever moved two towns over

It’s so sad to see you feel this way, and I hope for you to feel so much better extremely soon. Also it may have felt a shit year but because of how awesome you are at your job, you may have felt the quality be very average but to us, yes, it may feel different, but it is still very entertaining and inspiring. Hope you smash 2018 like a boss, make it a good one jack. I know it will be

Damn, since 30,000 subscribers you've changed

It’s weird I had a hunch that something might have been up with you dude and you need a break there is no way we deserve someone like you xx

Honestly , I had a bad year, my cat died and I really loved her , I cried so badly, best friend moved to another school.But, I hope Sean has a great year

I feel bad for jack for having a bad year he should deserve a great year for being a great youtuber I make these comments cause I feel like jack can make a difference with me and other peoples lives one time I watched a video called a normal lost phone the speech on the second video on the series at the end of the video... his speech made me cry cause its all true jack is the best cause he is a wild spin of feelings and he can make diffrences with people on some videos all his vidios are great.

jack is great and kind

I would tell him to stay strong but he is strongness himself.

true

This video is so incredibly relatable.

Have an amazing 2018, love your positivity. You are a good role model

IT'S NOT STUPID. We love you Sean. Make sure to take time to care for yourself and your mental health. I hope 2018 is a much better year for you

Personally, I stopped watching you for a long time. I stayed subscribed, but stopped watching. The way you handle things sometimes puts me off. I won't go into detail. I don't think of you as a bad person, but you fail to see the bigger picture sometimes. You're a pretty cool guy and a lovable optimist. I hope 2018 is a much better year for you.

Your the best you tuber ever I will stick with you till the end. keep the videos coming. We support you.keep up the good work!

For so long I thought he was saying “I will see so your nudes in the next video”

You should tour Pennsylvania (Somewhere near Bloomsburg or Berwick) :-)

WE ARE HERE FOR YOU JACK!!!

i am so touched ;3

Hearing you say this genuinely pains me man, you're such an amazing guy! If it wasn't for you these past few weeks I don't know if I would be here, you and PewDiePie have kept me from slipping into some bad states, I really hope you see this because you really can't fathom how much you help people like myself. We love you man!!

He's going to do something insane for the 20mil video

I feel bad because this was the best year of my life and everyone in the comments had such a shit year.

hey sean. i haven't watched your vids in a while & I'm sorry about that. this has opened my eyes so much. you deserve to be happy, you do. you deserve it so much. and it may just seem like we're just 10 year old fans who just like your content, but hey, we're here for you okay? and i'm 13 haha. on behalf of all of us, please take a break whenever you need. your fans will be okay & patient because we're fans of you, not just your content!! ~positive vibes~ :)

I'm proud you were able to make a video about this, and you are able to reach out for help! :D

Depression is something that we all deal with in some shape or form. It's how people deal with it that shows us how strong these people are. Most people get pulled into a dark pit, of which they can't get out, and thus struggle to fight depression. At that moment in time, you're fighting against a huge, immovable object. That's what I admire about you Jack. You took the toll, broke and got up even stronger. Never doubt your own strength and capacities. Millions and millions of people love you and your content to bits, and to see the creator of this content being so immensely strong gives all of us strength and power to move on. Never stop being you!

2017 was probably the worst year for me, too. Let's all leave it all behind and start over. Let's all be better.

Just, please don't overwork yourself.

I'm getting a Sayori feeling from jack.... let's not look down that path please

We all love u jack, im sorry your going through something like this, i hope u get past this

Jack, you sound overwhelmed. Try not to pressure yourself too much. I’ve been feeling similar things too because some major things had changed in my life. I felt lost and directionless when before I had a set plan. I feel a little better now because I took time to step back and reevaluate my life and my goals. Also, I’ve been looking into finding a therapist. I think mental health should be checked yearly (or more depending on needs) like annual physicals and etc. it’s important to take care of yourself. On another note, try to get outside and in the sun more often. I’m one of those people who get more gloomy and sad during big winter months because of the lack of sunlight lol. It makes me feel a little better. Maybe it’ll work a little for you too. I hope we both find lots of positivity this year and I hope everyone has an amazing 2018!!!

Jack you made me cry. You are one of the few youtubers that has actually recognized how important mental health and just health in general is. Your videos show how much of a great person you are and how you deeply care about not only the people around you and the community that you have made but also how much you care about yourself . Self care is so important and as someone who tends to forget about basic care for myself, I want to say thank you. This year so far hasn't been awful but it hasn't been great for me either. I have been on Christmas break from school and in the past two weeks I have just felt so Mentally and emotionally drained. My anxiety that causes me to become shaking has become such a regular thing and the confusion of where I want to head in life has really hit me hard, but this video really helped me, so thank you. I guess it's just one of those things where seeing someone that is looked up to by some many people struggle with similar things that you are struggling with, and then seeing them smile and laugh and say that they want to make this year 100 times better just really helps me and probably alot more people see the brighter side to things. Hope your 2018 is going well so far!

Please take care of yourself, the most important person in your life is you, if you need a break, take a break, I’m glad you told us and that you’re going to get help with these internal struggles this year, we appreciate you sean

Thanks Sean. You clarified something that has been bugging me. Thinks seem clearer now. Thank you

Jack, you are a wonderful person. We all go through times of self doubt, but what really matters is what you do about it! I think self reflection is absolutely essential to better yourself and remain healthy and happy! You are awesome!!

I understand what you mean. I’m more or less addicted to going on walks. I listen to music and reflect on my life and without them I get so lost. I feel like it’s normal to need some time to just process what’s happening around you sometimes. And it doesn’t have to be negative, it’s important to enjoy and process the positive as well. And if it isn’t going on walks then it can be something else. Hope this is a vetter year for you

Jack, I can feel your pain, hugs from south america

Sorry I'm a few days late on this, but I know how you feel Jack. I myself had such a shitty year in 2017. I did try my hardest to make 2017 a better year than the abomination that was 2016, but it just ended up being as bad, if not worse than 2016. And I have proof as a result: 1. Late Winter deaths to start off the year. Near the end of January, John Hurt died of cancer. I've never seen the guy before, but he did the voice of Hazel from Watership Down, which is my favorite movie of all time. Without John Hurt, Hazel would've felt the same in the movie as he is now. Hurt was like a (somewhat) childhood icon just for Hazel and Watership Down alone. And a month later, my granddad died. I don't exactly remember how he died, but really was a more tragic and personal moment of the year. My grandma refuses to move on from it, and there's so much dread and misery in my family that it's comical. It's bad enough that 2016 killed off David Bowie, Carrie Fisher, Richard Adams, etc., but this really was a frustrating way to start off the year. 2. Terrible Movies being shit out all year. Just like 2016, so many god awful, fucking terrible movies are being shoved into theaters as Hollywood masturbates over them and takes pride into seeing us suffer. I'm not joking when I say that I ended up seeing more bad movies than good ones. I had to suffer through The Great Wall, A Ghost Story, Smurfs: The Lost Village, Valerian, A Dog's Purpose, The Emoji Movie, King Arthur, and so much more. As of now, the only movies from 2017 that I actually did enjoy are Kong: Skull Island, The Zookeeper's Wife, War for the Planet of the Apes, Dunkirk and My Little Pony: The Movie. I have yet to see every movie from 2017, but there were a shit ton of horrible pieces of trash that don't deserve to exist, let alone make money at the box office. Some of them like Daddy's Home 2 or Bad Moms 2, that I don't wanna bother watching. It doesn't help that 2018 is also destined to be a shit year for movies. 3. School. Just School. I know this may sound a bit cliche to some people, but High School is such a disgraceful pain in the ass that it's just disgusting. My Math teacher sucks at his job, the kids in school are either annoying, a jackass, or just too boring to talk to. Not to mention that the Middle School kids constantly scream at the top of their lungs every chance they get. Math class is a waste of time as my Math teacher does little to nothing. All the other classes are just 'eh'. With 2018 relating to this, it gave me some good news and some bad news. The good news is that this is my very last year for school and when the school year ends, I won't have to put up from the previously mentioned problems. The bad news is that I still have to put up with 6 months of torture. I don't have a lot of other reasons on the top of my head as to why I had such a piss poor year in 2017. But once School is done in the start of summer, I'm absolutely gonna kick the rest of 2018's ass and try to make it worth my time. And to everyone else who had a horrible year, I'd strongly advise you do the same thing and make 2018 worth it.

When you start a new year, there is lots of additional stress added on, as you may not have got some thing off your mind Jack. Personally some very dark thoughts have gone through my mind this year, many emotional struggles or psychological issues. Then you have the fear, anxiety and worries that the problems in your life are still in the back of your mind. But jack, you are a inspirational person to me, amongst millions of others who watch you, you have shared your emotions with us and you have updated us with extremely personal issues in your life, which I immensely respect, you show people that YouTube's connect with your fans. Then we have the part of everyone that you can't talk about, crying in front of your audience is what shows what a amazing person you are, everyone needs time to their selves, and then you have the fact that you tirelessly overwork yourself and you give your heart and soul into your fans. Everyone has hard times, almost every youtuber sticks on a fake face or image to hide their emotions, you however help us with our issues and then we watch your videos as we love you dearly Shaun, and you always have our love, care and support. And you clearly show who you are, I cannot emphasise more how important that is, you show us your emotions instead of pretending to be somebody you are not, and that is why you, a Irish man with passion, devotion and dedication have become what you have today, sadness cannot be averted, its what makes you human. Goodbye Shaun remember all these comments, they show us why you are who you are, when you are lost in though it opens new doors for you, you are worth so much as you have improved so many lives, you can't do everything at once, and you are a person who may doubt yourself, but you can't believe that you are not worth anything as these comments show that's wrong, your emotions show that's wrong, you prove that wrong. People are not as open as you are and you should feel as important as we see you, even if you don't see this comment at the very least it will add to the pile. Stay you Jack We will love you all the same We love you for who you are Have a great year my friend

Why did I get a notification saying this was just uploaded 5 minutes ago...?

18:10 I felt like he is SonGoku gathering the energy from everybody on earth

Do you remember Pewdiepie had a contract with Disney, then moved to his own office, and had a lot of projects, then had a mental breakdown, and then happened, what happened? Yeah, me too. I don't want to "jinx" anything, just saying

Sean I think it needs to calm down. two videos a day is a bit to mutch Maby try one video a day is good or even one every two days is fine

Hey Jack just out of idle curiosity where did you buy your acoustic panels/soundproofing panels from?.

how many spacific subs does he have i know he has 17 M

We love you so much Jack! I’m sorry 2017 was so pressured and, like you said, let’s make 2018 Amazing! I am so proud to even be a subscriber of yours and you inspire us every day. Thank you for everything you’ve done for us! (And please remember to think about yourself too)

WHO THE FUCK IS CUTTING ONIONS AGAIN Btw I’m sorry sorry for you jack but you deserve everything good

We need to get Sean 18 mil subs ASAP for 2018

2017 was a brutal year from start to finish, and i was so happy to see the back of it. It was a real shame as there were some good parts in it but sadly they were very overshadowed by all the negatives. I found your videos helped me cope through some of the worst times, and i would like to thank you for that because it means a lot. Let's bury 2017 in the past where it belongs, and beat the shit out of 2018 LIKE A BOSS!!!

I know how you feel I have felt with mental health my self and I had stopped everything in my life and had a break and things got better so Jack take time all your suns would understand but ur such a positive lad you will get through it

Don't worry it will get better I can't wait till you get 18m it will happen soon I have been watching since 2m

Dear Sean... Thank you for speaking up about this. What I've always noticed is that you have a tendency of downplaying and not acknowledging the emotions you feel, and I really don't think you deserve that - no one deserves that. We are all capable of feeling bad and feeling down, and though some are in a supposedly bigger problem than you it isn't a competition - we can all feel shitty, no matter how supposedly successful we are and no matter how free of problems our lives might have been beforehand. Mental illness and sucky situations hit us all in this rollercoaster that is life. Allow yourself to feel bad, as you say the rest of us should. Stay positive, but acknowledge negatives. Take care of yourself, cause that's how you can accomplish the most. Don't do it all for us, cause you deserve it as well, and I am sure the most of us will be happy to see you happy - and those that don't agree with that don't matter. Again, thanks for speaking up, when big personalities such as you speak out you validate all of us who struggle, even if you claim what you face is 'minor'. Take care of yourself. And same goes to you out there reading this comment. Take care of yourself and love yourself.

What happened to you and Pewdiepie?

2018 is the year we work on ourselves and make the best out of it!

My god Jack >.< Your voice got a bit shakey just talking about some of it. I hope so much that you'll be okay going forward. I really do!

not trying to be a hater. because i am still a fan. i see through this video that you see the effort being dropped in another comment is said things got stale. lets just hope this year they are not and hopefully i will become a daily watcher again.

Massive Respect jack :)

I love you so. Much and respect you beyond anything else but time or the new year doesn't make your mental health all better you do. You can change how you feel not time

Hey Jack I just watched this and if you need to talk im here!!! If you need to take a break from YouTube for a while then you should be able to do that. I hope things get better for you!!!

i have had depression the most of my life. i don't right know, but i know it can come back when ever. but i know where my struggles lay, and i think, form what you are saying, you struggle are kinder the same. you need to be the best that you can, and you are never really sure you are there 100% even 110%, but in the same time you tell people around you that its okay to be human. you need to tell youself that too.. thats how i hold my depression away.. reminding myself that, im just a human, and its okay nit do be perfect every single time! and i thing for you as a youtube, this is so much more important to tell youself. coz you have so many people looking up too you, like you are some super human, so when you tell us that you are just a human, and we shouldn't se you as more, tell that youself too. you are just a human, let youself be, just a human! have a nice 2018!

it took a while for me to see this...... dont be scared to show us this part of you, it might not be as profitable but a great deal of this fanbase will always be here for you sean :) *stay strong*

Don't worry jack we all still love you. I really want to give you a hug

Thank u for ur honesty and inspiration

This hit so hard. I WAS CRYING WITH YOU AGGH. I can relate to these feelings so much, you're not alone feeling like this Jack. I still get scared when I'm alone with my thoughts but I found more constructive ways instead of distracting ways to deal with it. MAKE 2018 AMAZING GUYS! WE CAN DO IT!

It’s okay to cry. You are stronger than most of us. Even you... especially you need to take 5

1000 dislikes? Starting to think the thumbs down sign is the like button in other cultures

I love you so much like not weirdly but like a sibling...also you can do this I know you can. As someone who knows exactly how you feel YOU WILL GET THROUGH IT. I suffered from the same thing you described my 7th and 8th grade in middle school, only I was disassociating a lot. Kinda like how you were describing not feeling yourself except for me it was like I was cut off from my emotions and I felt so tired of getting up at the same time to do the same thing (school) for who knows how much longer. Getting back on track it didn't go away soon and I didn't realize what I was expierincing wasn't normal but I began to notice it was like I had two personas to keep up one for school and my friends and regular old me. I still 'laughed and had fun' with my friends however the joy began to dull a lot quicker and I honestly missed a lot of family tome (as I am still learning about...I missed a lot of movie times that I can never get back) because I just shut myself away. My grades began to drop and seeing how my family's broke a scholarship is the only way I'm getting into college. I should have been worried but I wasn't and that scared me more than anything except I didn't really feel scared just that I wasn't supposed to be feeling well...nothing. Sorry to quote Dean from Supernatural but honestly I never related more to him when he said,"I dont care any more and you know what I dont care that i don't care" because that is exactly how I felt except it wasn't freeing or wanted because it made me feel like a robot. And yeah I could sit here and tell you that despite all that I'm fine but I would be lying and you deserve better than that it's been 3 1/2 years and honestly I'm still a little messed up not nearly as much as I was before but there are times life gets so much its like I'm so stressed I'm calm because I feel nothing (I can control it better), I still don't feel like I get the same amount of joy from doing things that used to make me super happy, and no I don't want pity that is NOT what this is about this is not for me though it might help this is to let Sean know that if I could get through that I have faith that you will prevail this and I can tell you. That you're already taking the proper steps to get you back on track and for that I am so so very proud of you.

I wanna give you a hug

we need more humble people like this on this community. Too much ego everywhere and me me me. Whe did youtube become about narcissists?

fuck yes jack, i moved my parents this last year. I literally still can't believe I did that.

Blessings to you Jack.

It's okay jack, we've got your back. Lets make this the best year ever!

Who would dislike this?!??!?!?

I feel you... 2017 began perfectly. I was so happy at the start...Met the best girl ever. Got an "job" education, i do not know how you call it in english. I'm from germany. My girlfriend got pregnant... Her medics turned down the effect of the birth control pills. After we realised it and told this our families, everything went wrong. She lost the child in the 10th week. It was and even is really hard for me to understand that... It really killed me, my life was not the best, got mobbed and whatever, but this was the worst thing that has ever happened to me... After we lost the child, I also lost my education and I do not find a new place, where I can start a new education... not even a place where I can continue the education. I do have running costs and was not even able to pay them in January... I hope that it will get better, cause I am sometimes scared of my own thoughts... I wish you the best, Sean! I follow you for a really long time and I do watch your Vids, when I feel down! You are such an awesome dude! Thank you for filling my life with your content! I am so sorry for my english, if it is bad. :)

awww poor Jack. We all love you. take your time.

2017 was the worst

I tell everyone that you are the best person on YouTube, because I think you are. We have a common resolution of going to a therapist, and I think it's going to be good. Happy new year and remember to take time off now and then.

You have made my day for almost three years, you make me smile. You make me happy, for THREE years you have made my days better.....

Love from the land of pewdsss

"I am going to make this year my bitch, I am going to kick the shit out of every I do this year, in the most positive way possible" - jacksepticeye 2017

the way he was sighing and stumbling over his words man he seems so exhausted

Sounds like you need to stop making 2 videos per day. There is only so much time to do everything you want to.

Jack, Sean whatever you want to be called if you ever look at this take a quick scroll down these comments and look, look really hard you have one of the kindest most supportive gatherings on this site so never ever ever forget if you ever want to take a break or do anything we understand and we will always support you no matter what. ~your the best

You are such a wonderful man Jack. yes im a bit late on the draw with this video but oh my god, a good set of morales and a beautiful set of BABY BLUES *FLASHING BABY BLUES* =). anyways back to the topic at hand hold on let me get my roasting hand ready 5 4 3 2 1 fuck depression, fuck korea, fuck child poverty, fuck donald J tramp i mean trump and most of all FUCK LOGAN PAUL. anyways jack just keep doing what your doing you dont have to make anybody proud just keep doin what ya doing jack

Same 2017 was awful for me

How the dislikes

Jack,you just explained what I have felt for the past year,but I could never explain it , and to think you didn’t relise how you felt because of work is stupid,you should take a lot more breaks to reflect on your life and thoughts every once and a while before they all build up,if you keep on letting it build up you will most likely self harm and have suicidal thoughts and I know that’s sounds extreme but it’s not and it’s very easy to happen so please,do not let this happen to you as it has happened to me

Pls don't cry Jack it was a tough year for me to

Definitely make 2018 your year, and kick the shit out of it. But it sounds like you've learned an important lesson from this year that you should take with you. It's important to take care of yourself as well, instead of just pushing yourself harder and harder. I think you've realized that, which is a fantastic thing. Take breaks when you need to. Get the help you need. Learn to lean on the ones you love the most and that love you the most back. That will be part of making 2018 great. Working hard, but not too hard that you completely burn yourself out, and taking care of yourself. Your fans can survive on one video a day or a few days you take off to unwind and take a vacation. Fucking take care of yourself and the awesomeness will follow quickly. And always remember to leave time to spend with your partner.

Great video Jack. Talking about these issues is never easy. Respect to you pal

You are a good guy! Hope that you are doing better now and that you keep your focus on the positive!

oh yes that is right... this was why i've been watching you for 4 years now because you are a nice human person!

I mentioned this to another YouTuber (I'm not naming names, he's just been in a similar situation as you and many others) The behind the scenes bit is...a LOT more work than people realize. They know, they just don't KNOW. I told him it was like my "12 Days of Cookiemas" where I made over thirty kinds of goodies. Countless hours, pounds of flour, butter, sugar, dozens of eggs, etc. People on the receiving end have NO idea. It's a labor of love. Not that cookies and candies are anything like what you do but it's the same principle. Takes breaks when you need them. Don't burn yourself out.

As much I absolutely look up to you Sean for your unbelievable work ethic and what you've contributed to the community, I think you and other Youtubers need to slow down! The expectation that you and other Youtube personalities need to do daily uploads seems like a profoundly unhealthy precedent. How can you possibly live a balanced existence if you spend 10-12(or more?) hours a day every day of the year working on this? Is workaholism worth it? That's just my opinion and you'll obviously do what you want in the end, but I'd much rather you upload way less and have more time for other essential parts of your life than upload every day and risk massive emotional and mental fatigue. Either way, all the best to you in 2018.

You won't.see this, but you are the best Sean! You got me through my depression throughout high-school and now I have gone far! I seaked medical help a couple years ago and feel much better; I'm happy, I have fun, I love college, etc. I was going through almost the same thing as you but for over 10 years of my life and tried to kill myself multiple times as well, but I was able to get through it just like you will be able to!

I’ve only just now gotten around to seeing this because of how busy I’ve been and I’m just in tears. Jack I feel the same as you, within my friend group I am the therapist, I am the one people come to when they feel like their world is ending. I mean, I’ve talked two of my friends out of suicide. And being the only person who’s able to see the good in the world and sometimes be admonished by those who dont is absolutely exhausting... not to mention I have to add on top of that school work and my own demons and sleep deprivation from taking care of other people, I’ve just run out of gas and I’ve tumbled into 2018 with no hope... no spark... and looking at my upcoming schedule, I don’t think I’m going to make it past February. But... I’m going to try. If Jacksepticeye, one of my greatest inspirations, has hope after having 2017 kick the shit out of him, then I can have hope too. If Sean can still see the good in the world, so can I. I’m going to write those four pillars down and remind myself of them every morning, because every morning is a new start :). Thank you Sean, for everything you do. Thank you for being my friend on the other side of the screen

Love to you Jack. Stay healthy, mental health is as important as physical health

Jack... *It was bad for all youtubers ... and for me the worst one was 2016*

are you with me?

Jack you really are inspiring. Take care of yourself we love you!

well.... 2017 was almost the worst year of my life my oldest brother died of cancer in march and we were robbed on easter.... BUT I KNOW WE CAN TURN IT AROUND THIS YEAR...MAKE IT THE BEST YEAR OF YOUR LIVES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This makes me want to tackle you in a hug.

...I wish we could give jack a nice big group hug...

Jack , please take some more time off. You need and deserve it , please. I care and I think you need at least a month or two of just not making videos

We love you, Jack! It's always okay to take time off for your mental health. I'm so glad you did and you're feeling positive for this year. We're here for you!
