we're all stupid and boring

we’re all frightened. that’s okay. let’s stay indoors and watch me talk about my rapidly depleting sense of self and bionicles. we can all get a bit lost in the woods sometimes x

Even though this was a really lulling talk, you kept my attention so well with all the cuts and swaps. Never directly addressing the problem but explaining it so vividly. Beautiful

i was talking about this with my therapist last week. lately i feel like i'm not myself because i have a lot of walls up. i'm very private about the kind of things i enjoy. like my music taste, my taste in films, even though it feels really cathartic to meet people who like the same things as me, i keep it to myself most of the time. but i feel like i do have a tendency to let my interests shape my ENTIRE personality, like other things invent me rather than i invent myself, you know? but i don't really know where to start to build my own personality lol. BIG QUESTIONS! it feels nice to not feel alone though. i've been following you since your ol' vlog days (lol) and even though i'm kind of a 'silent' viewer, it feels really comforting that someone i've been following a long time feels the same kinda way as me. thank u for everything x

This reminds me of the film Barbie as the island princess. There’s a part where her elephant (yes her elephant) is distressed because she thinks Barbie is going to forget about her when she goes off with the prince. Then Barbie sings to the elephant about there always being more love inside of you.

your ability to articulate things that ruminate constantly in my brain always brings me such comfort

The lady who didn’t let you borrow her phone feels like she should belong in a comedy sketch show. Absolutely hilarious.

I don’t know if this is helpful but when I was 21 I didn’t know who I was, when I was 25 I thought I knew who I was, then I turned 27 and found out that was wrong - when I’m 30 I’ll probably cringe compassionately at the person I think I am now. Guess I’m just trying to say it’s never too late to find out / decide who you are- and if you don’t like yourself now, the good news is that change is painful and if you’re going through something painful/uncomfortable you’re probably in the process of changing / going through something that will make you change. Idk man, this made sense in my head. Please keep searching, expressing, going for it. don’t give up. your best days are ahead of you. we care about you. Stop murdering obi wan. Stay safe

I know he's talking about a bunch of random things but his thoughts seem so organised(?) I don't know I've always envied that about Bertie

Ok but that obsessiveness for brief periods of time over random things is something I can really relate to! To the point of where I can track my life three what game/movie/tv show/band/celebrity I was obsessed with. And no one I know seems to have it as obsessively as I do...

Thank you, this is beautifully honest. I feel like as a young adult I am constantly in a state of fear ( although, as you mentioned, that is not to say there aren't things which bring me happiness); more specifically a fear of wasting time and not living life to the best of my ability. Which ironically stops me from living all together as I get too obsessed with what a good use of time qualifies as. I feel guilty when I don't achieve anything in a day and can't comfortably sit and do nothing.

re: a deteriorating sense of self - today I had the thought that I've been approaching the question of "who am I?" from the wrong direction. I've been coming at it like this is something I have to uncover, as though there's an intrinsic me I haven't yet figured out, and once I do find that person I'll be happier/complete/etc. but now I'm thinking that it would be better to ask, do I like the person I am now? and, if not, who do I want to be?

"It's not like I hate myself, I just don't know who I am" That hits deep. You can't hate a person if you don't know who they are. Maybe we distract ourelves because getting to know ourselves bring a possibility that we are people that we hate.

There is no "true self" so trying to define who you are is ultimately pointless lmao. Accepting this helps I think. Great video (:

the intensely liking things for a period of time really reminds me of special interests, they're interests autistic people (like myself) get and can get super excited over & can go on about for hours, sometimes it's one interest forever but for me i have different things at different times. they can heavily define periods in my life, like in my memory some things are during the hunger games era and others are during the snail era. (thought u might find this interesting (: )
