Doctor Mike and Emma Chamberlain On Why Millions Of Subscribers Don’t Make You Happy

788 685 Näkymät

Today, I’m lucky enough to sit down with one of my favorite FIstreamrs, Emma Chamberlain, to talk about what living the life of a FIstreamr has done to her mental health. Along with being hysterically funny and a brilliant creator, Emma’s down to Earth and never shies away from being vulnerable with her audience. That didn’t change today, as she candidly talked about the feelings of isolation that most people don’t realize FIstreamrs can face.
Check out Emma’s channel here:

  • As someone who makes content solely because I enjoy doing it and I love the editing process, Emma’s words mean a lot... I’ve been watching her forever and to hear that there’s pressure to make videos and make them all perfect... to hear that she wishes she had known that it’s OK to not put out content, not love a video you make, or to give yourself a little bit of credit for hustling as hard as ya do... it just means a lot. We need to stop downplaying our struggled and anxiety, it happens!!! This was a dope collaboration and I’m sooo grateful for her words!!! x

  • I wonder if the pressures you spoke of are the biggest reasons for why there have been so many youtubers who took their own lives. I stumbled upon the wiki page for the deceased youtubers and was shocked by how many suicides there were. I realize there are tons of youtubers so statistically it may not be as significant as it seems looking just at the number of deaths but still...

  • This is why it’s so so good for creators to have some sort of meaning or purpose behind their content or outside of their content other than just vlogging their daily lives. The people who I watch that have an outside career or a deeper purpose to their content stay much more grounded and don’t seem to live in so much anxiety about their career suddenly crashing out of no where

  • I think that the pressure on creators is so immense because unlike other celebrities, actors, musicians, etc., are generally protected by the system and the studios and support staff, whereas FIstream personalities are just, people's people. It feels like independent contractor methods have infiltrated into entertainment and all other industries, the "permanently temporary" who make money for companies with marginal support and benefits, and it's not a feasible solution for staffing and longevity of participation in the medium/craft. Protect yourselves, YTers!

  • I think one of the biggest issues is that it's physically impossible to actually engage with all 6+ million subscribers individually. On the content creator's screen, you literally just see graphs and numbers. You don't realise that you've personally reached out to John from Denver who changed his stance on vaccinations because of your videos, or Julie from London who discovered a benign tumour because your videos encouraged her to see the GP. The most you can do is see how many people from Albania watched your videos, or how many of them are younger than 25. When all you have a graphs and numbers, you become disconnected with real life people.

  • In my last 2 years of high school I was extremely depressed, occasionally self harming but my classmates would always make comments about how put together I was and they were always like “you’re so happy all the time” even tho at the end of the day I would go home and cry because I was so insecure and hated myself. I only seemed to be happy because when I’m around other people I never want to be a downer even if I’m struggling internally. So everyone just assumed things about me and never asked me if I was okay or how I was doing. I now never assume anything about anyone’s mental health.

  • This is what I was thinking of the last month, Im not a youtuber or sth (bec I made videos and never posted them hahaha) but I was thinking of what I wanna be in life. I realised that all jobs related to art are like that. Actors; what if no one wants me anymore. Designer; if you dont design stuff that everyone wants you wont stay famous, Models; if you are pretty enough anymore you can be forgotten, Influencers; what if no one wants to follow me tomorrow. -> what if I get cancelled tomorrow for what ever reason. But if you di a job like doctor, there will always be a demand for doctors or IT people and stuff. Maybe its also about when you are your own boss idk. But a lot of people are suffering from the “am I gonna be forgotten in a few days” ?

  • what adds to it is that because you are completely self employed and mostly free to choose when to work, you can always pause for negative thoughts. You're almost never distracted by a fix schedule because you're able to pause anytime and loose yourself in negative thoughts.

  • I think a little introduction of the guest in the beginning would be really nice (who she is, what she's doing, what kind of channel she has, etc.). I'm assuming she's a youtuber, obviously, but some context would still be nice. Just a suggestion for future interviews:)

    • I do feel that FIstreamrs do need to take breaks from FIstream, as in Vacation time, having a "Me" time away from media. I also think FIstream needs to return to the old FIstream format, so that people can truly create entertaining videos.

  • I feel for Mental health that is exclusive to 'FIstreamr', maybe you should redo this video topic again but this time with Joji (FillthyFrankTV). He straight up moved on from his FIstream 'Persona' and went into music and it would have a very unique video.

So in essence, you will likely never go out of style... and if you did, it would be by your own decision and will. So we enjoy your brilliant work, laughter and free patient education - keep it up as long as you will :)
