    Always good to take some time away from social expectations and recalibrate, get in touch with Self again. Enjoy your life's journey, and the ebb and flow of your creative process.

    Your perspective on the fundamentals of a human being are incredibly insightful. I would love to bounce ideas with you for a book that I am in the process of creating. It’s about behavioral economics and I want to capture what it is to be a human to further elaborate how it determines our decision making process which in turn affects our economy. You can reach out to me via email janinejamied@gmail.com. Hope we can chat soon!

    Narcissists are always on the hunt for something they are never going to find. They pretend to be someone else to ensnare the victim with deception, lies, pretending to feel one way, when they feel the complete opposite. A Narcissist should not be trusted and are often toxic with an excessive need for admiration, disregard for others feelings, an inability to handle any criticism and a sense of entitlement. I used to think that love could cure anything but it only fed my narc's enormous ego. It is important to be wise when dealing with a narcissist and I’m glad that cyberhackinggenius helped cloned my husband’s phone. I got access to all his dealings both on phone and social media without touching his phone. All I did was share his phone number with Cyberhackinggenius and I was able to read both his new and deleted messages from my phone through a remote link to a programmed App containing cloned cell information. My husband was a cheating Narcissist and I’m glad to find out all his secrets and infidelity with the help of cyberhackinggenius. I’m finally going through divorce with lots of evidence against him. I read all his deleted and recent chats on Whatsapp,Facebook and Instagram. Hacker Gavin also helped me in checking if my phone number is being hacked and he secured all my numbers from unauthorized access with a very powerful encryption software. I also explained to him how I got scammed online and he helped me in recovering all my lost funds to scammers online. Hacker Gavin also helped me with my Bitcoin investment and I now make 60% profit as ROI every 24 hours for my invested BTC. You can contact this great hacker “Gavin” through his email cyberhackinggenius@gmail. com and WhatsApp: +19256795146 . You can also call and text his Cellular number on +16265152216 and thank me later for this great information....

Just disconnect myself for a few days because being on a laptop for hours at a time day after day for months doing classwork has taken a huge toll on my overall health for the past 2+ months. I hope things are well with you, take care and I wish you the best. Unrelated side note, cool to see you rocking a Lucha Underground shirt. I miss that show but it's unfortunate how poorly they treated their perfomers.

    5 years ago, when I bought my current phone, you were still a kid.. But it feels like it was yesterday. I had 3 smartphones before that, and a handful of dumb phones before that. My current phone still feels brand new. I didn't really accomplish anything in the last 5 years, and that's cool. You can take that 1 million views accomplishment and be proud of that for the rest of your life, there is nothing more you need to do. I hope you figure this out before you get too old to enjoy your youth :)

    If there are hate comments that get to you, please remember your feelings are valid. I feel like my mind real estate is fully occupied at the moment too. And my quality of life is not the same as before either. You could be going through something that I can't relate to but I know what it's like to look at someone else and dismiss their struggles because I'm not in their shoes. So, I really want you to know, your feelings are valid, and I am also working on coming out of this "fall of mine" to become stronger, and more understanding. I am struggling with you and this video helped me realized that you are also struggling with me. So I want to pronounce to this comment box, I am where I am right now because that is where I need to be, and I am working my mind off to understand why that is, and where to go next. I am resilient!

Should we embrace life when it creates so much imperfections in us then? I think that we are pretty happy in our sleep...why wake-up to disease, fear, despair, addiction, loss, depression, anxiety uncertainty, failure? we will die and hopefully, it will not be worse than living...

    I think you’re brave putting yourself out there. I’ve only watched a few of your videos, but I enjoy your content and your delivery very much. I’ve often considered having a channel. However.. 1/. I wouldn’t be able to deal with the trolls. Although, you know the saying... ‘you can’t please all the people’. And 2/. I get burned out easily if I expose myself to too much social media. I would be unable to switch off. Ten years ago i became ill with a mysterious condition. I was left with a diagnosis of M.E. We introverts and HSP’s are predisposed to burnout. You take time to recharge. Get out in nature. Detach from ‘stuff’. Because when you get older, unless you take care of your health now, you may become poorly too. I can’t emphasis that enough. 🙏🏻

    Bruh, you are super young - although what I'm about to say has nothing to do with age. These issues you speak sound like symptoms of not knowing who we are. And not even all dedicated monks get to know who they are. You are operating as an intellectual animal, which is what 99.9% of us do. Maybe one day you'll act as a man (and I don't mean male - I mean all genres). That, a man, is an entirely different being that operates from the inside out, not the other way. Yes, take that time, be with yourself and truly be with yourself. Give yourself a chance to know a little more about who you are. Can't wait for your return, kid. Much appreciation.

    It is a tough world (even tougher right now) but it is nothing personal. Are we spiritual beings having a human experience, or human beings having a spiritual experience. Whatever we are doing during our waking hours ... it is like we are looking thru a tube, a very narrow vision. When we are dreaming we are seeing with our entire mind, all our emotions, our soul. Everything we feel we used to love doing has been taken from us, Everything that we used to see thru that tube (narrow view). We have everything left..... our imagination, our soul, our mind. Stay the course. Stay focused on the big goals. Be ready when we will finally be out of the current dilemma.

But ITput really distracts me until my preparation speech hadn't complete. But, to see your video in here and another makes me feel concern about my social media addiction and etc. So, thank you for making this and i have to be consious that i need to take a short time watching ITput or even not watching it in a day. Also, it applies the same as other social media. Have a great time to rest from social media.😊

And I think that a better quote than "compare yourself to who you were yesterday" is one from the book Atomic Habits : "You should be far more concerned with your current trajectory than with your current results".

    Very brave and wise decision Nathaniel. Sincerely, watching your video, I just wanted to meet up you one day in the street and invite you to a coffee to speak about this. About social media, about engagement, about the feelings that it produces, about how we miss on life just for thinking "Will this fit into my Instagram/ITput?". I personally removed Instagram two years ago because I realised that I was identifying myself more with the avatar created there than with my true self, and that caused frustration and constant background noise. Thus I stopped, and it has given me an incredble amount of meaning in my relationships and the things that I do. I enjoy taking amazing pictures or videos and knowing that they are for me, not for anyone else, and not thinking constantly if I should record something or not. Also now I am 100% with a person when I meet, and people notice. And real presence and attention are so rare that when people realise that you are there completely for them they feel amazing and they resonate back. In any case, I just wanted to share this with you and wish that you find the calm you are looking for. Greetings from Germany.

If it can warm your heart a little, whenever you will read this, if you do : your questions, your thoughts, your art, basically your whole content is exactly what I needed to feed my mind right now. Thank you for offering that on a platform that encourages production and pure fast food entertainment for the sake of an algorithm and views. Your channel, your content and your intelligence is what I’m (just like a whole lotta people) looking for and enjoy on ITput, despite what this huge machine is pushing forward. I’m glad you went « contre le courant », for you. Hope it does you all the good you hope for and I’m looking forward to watch your new ideas and discoveries when you are ready to share them again.

    I really like the idea of taking a break from social media. I watched the social dilemma as well and read some books on the subject, and it all left me feeling a bit powerless. However, we can switch to platforms where we are not the product.
