I have no many emotions about his new video and I think I’m going to take some time and write out a long response because I really want to say what I’m feeling right now!
First of all, I’m so disappointed in anyone who is leaving comments like the one Joey read. It’s not fair to say one person’s problem is better or worse than someone else’s. You don’t know what they’re going through, which gives you no room to judge or accuse someone of overreacting to a situation in their life.
Personally, today I had a huge anxiety attack and and currently still going through the later stages of it. When I watched Joey’s video, it made me feel a lot better to know that I’m not alone in anxiety. Specifically the person I look up to! But at the same time, it made me incredibly angry because of the leaving horrible judgements in the comments. Although Joey’s reasons for his anxiety aren’t the same as mine, I understand what he’s going through and his reaction to it is completely understandable, and so is getting pills to help with his anxiety. What’s not understandable is all the people who think it’s okay to yell at Joey for having this normal response. It’s ridiculous.
If you watch Joey’s vlogs, you are watching his life. And his life includes both the good and the bad and we’re so lucky that he opens up to us. and I’m angry that people decided to lash out on him for doing so.
And lastly, Joey if you’re reading this, I want you to know that I’m here for you. Your fans are here for you. Even though days like today will happen, where the hate gets the best of you, I’m so proud that you remembered that majority of us are 100% here for you and will not judge you. I think the one of the saddest parts of the video was when you said you were a loser for crying.. because that couldn’t be farther from the truth! It takes a lot of courage to reveal your life to millions of the people on the internet and to be shot down for doing it. It’s completely fine you cried, and I’m proud of you for it. And I’m proud of you for posting the video even though you cried and spoke your thoughts. And I’m proud of you for letting everyone know that if they don’t like what they see, they can leave. I hope you have a safe flight. I love you, we love you. ♡
