Leaving Anxiety Behind...Hopefully

Postby WarWeasel » Sun Apr 01, 2018 10:38 pm

found this forum a help to express what I’m feeling, and help me find some self confidence even if it’s temporarily.
I like this forum...doesn’t make feel as alone with my problems, it’s comforting to know others experience, similar and or the same as me.

But back to the original reason I wrote this, after some help thanks to another member, and my wife, I think it’s time I tried to find something to focus on, especially seeing as I cannot work just yet.

As stupid as it sounds, I’ve always been interested in YouTube, I would happily curl up under my blankets, cuddling a pillow and binge watch YouTube, mainly gaming channels (Pewds, Marki, JSE etc). And now I’m actually tempted to give it a go myself, I struggle with public speaking and any form of communication, but this may help slightly...and who knows maybe I’ll even end up getting paid for it if I like it, I have some basic editing skills, and a decent iPad in which I can record, so I don’t see why I cannot try. It will give me something to work on while my wife is out partying, or at work, it’ll mean I’ll have something else to do, and strive for, I naturally hate my voice and the way I speak but...could it be even remotely possible that I can overcome this? I’m sick of this crippling anxiety from stopping me with every little thing, can barely call the doctors for myself, so this is big. I already feel abit panicked by the though of it and can hear my mum saying “don’t do anything that makes you anxious” but this actually may be good.... I have a supporting wife, and a awesome forum that I feel comfortable sharing how I feel, so I reckon I’ll be okay :roll: :mrgreen:

I see no problem with the following notes:

-1- Recognize that no matter what video you post, there will be dislikes and negative comments.

You can disable comment/likes, but that doesn’t really solve the root issue of anxiety.

-2- It is a highly competitive environment. The vast majority of videos get only a handful of views.

-3- Don’t use ads to get paid until you have established a video with over 1,000 views, This is arbitrary, but it is a general rule of thumb I follow. Don’t insult people by having them watch an ad for your video with 17 views. And it isn’t really worth it. You only get around $100 for 100,000 views.

Make your priority having fun and posting just for the fun of posting. Don’t do it for likes, don’t do it for money. Do it for fun.

Oh yeah I’m aware there will be the bad comments and ratings, it’s phyiscally impossible to please 7 billon people at once, and I think it may do me some good to that kind of exposure, normally I’ll shut myself off from it.

Agreed on the money part, especially now youtube are planning to put unskippable ads on some videos, it gets highly annoying very quickly :shock:

you have to be confident on your vision

if you have no ideas, ask for ideas, search for ideas, write down the notes,

if you want to make gaming videos? well you can read the manuals, yeah, you can read the manuals and there is nothing to be anxious because you know what you doing, you reading the manuals, you showing how its done,

double tap this button and here is the magic

anxious you become when you are unsure, when you know exactly what you talking or at least you believe to be the way, there is no reason to be anxious about

I suppose you’re right on that front, now thinking about it when I know what I’m doing I’m normally okay...I don’t know though I just get an intense anxiety feeling especially with speaking, I guess it’s going to take time, and a lot of back and forth
