    This is just my opinion but the best thing i think u can say to someone who’s in just such in a broken state is “its gonna be okay” Because it just feels so reassuring and it just makes me feel like “yeah, it _is_ gonna be okay” it makes me feel like i actually have the strength to face these challenges and trials (but keep in mind its just my opinion lol)

    Thank you Jazza, for providing some of the most entertainingly creative, funny and wonderful art videos. But also thank you for sharing your sentimental and vulnerable side. It's not easy to talk about the past, as well as sharing those genuine thoughts about our roughest times. This video gives me a lot of hope to keep going.

    This came at the right time and I thank you for this video Jazza. Lately I haven’t been feeling that motivated to do much art and questioning myself about whether or not I’m serious about it. When I’m in this kind of art slump I just don’t put pressure on myself and let myself know to move at my own pace and it’ll all work out however it’s planned to in the end. This video was very touching and I truly enjoyed it.

    I’m 21, and at age 11, my PTSD began. I have no idea what I would even be able to say to my 11 year old self besides this: Life gets better. You’re going to hear everyone say it and think it’s absolutely the stupidest thing you’ve ever heard, but it does. It gets so much better. What you are struggling with, it never goes away, but you learn to cope- maaaybe not so healthily at times, but you learn better skills and ways to deal with it. You learn to love life, occasionally. You eventually get a decent job, a decent place, an even better boyfriend who helps you through the worst of times, and two lovely amazing kitties who snuggle you when you cry. Just hold in there ❤️

    This is exactly how I'm going to look at my present day self 10 years later, hopefully. I'm struggling; I know what to do, but I just have such a hard time doing it. My parents told me I'm going to have to go back to my home country and leave where I grew up if I don't pass school. How is someone who's been failing school since 5th grade like me going to change all my grades from F to C in a matter of 3 weeks? I don't know, but I'll find a way, not only that, I'm struggling with so many other parts of my life, our rent is being raised, our pay is being reduced, riots and riots, Asain hate attacks as I'm Asian myself, my mental health not doing well, my physical health not doing well. Nothing is going well, but here I am; I'm here. I haven't given up yet because I don't give up. Everytime I tell myself I want to kill myself, I say... "Why kill yourself if you can keep living to struggle. Suffering is only the symptom of struggle; struggle only happens when going up the mountain that is life and through that you'll one day reach the view you've been looking for. Some don't make it, they accidentla trip and fall down the mountain, some of them live, some of them die, some of them break their arms and legs. There are risky paths that go higher, there are safe paths that go lower and take longer. I chose the fast and dangerous path. I can either make my success in less than 7 years and I'm only 16, but if I fail I'll fall and my chances of making it... I'll probably be dead right when I hit the ground, that's why they have something called 'The starving artist': The ones who fell and broke their legs and are the ones trying to keep climbing."

    I am hardly feeling anything as of the moment and art became my socket to feel again. I feel like a failure because artist in my age are achieving a lot. I felt left out. Only to watch Jazza's Video (even though I'm late) I can't help to feel again. Thank you Jazza and once again, you deserve these achievements.

    If I could talk to myself 10 years ago I’d tell myself “I know you’re only 2 but your parents are divorcing. You don’t even know what that means but it happened.. I’m going to tell You something hard so be prepared... again your only 2 but I’m gonna explain either way... so.. your parents divorced... your mom is gonna meet a guy. He’s gonna become your stepdad. But... he’s gonna be verbally abusive. He’s gonna hate your dad. He’ll hate your step mom too. He’s going to be a bit of a bad person in general... but, even when you get bullied in grade 4, even when that’s when the family life is even worse than ever, even if your grades suck, and even if your becoming kind of depressed, even though you thought about killing yourself to end your pain, it’ll get better... don’t worry. Your best friend is going to stick with you forever.. she’ll help you with all the crap you go through.. she is going to be one of the best people in your life. Your grades and maturity and responsibility levels will get SO much better over your grade 4 summer break. It’ll be better then.. the bullies will finally get the punishments they deserved. It’s gonna be good throughout grade 5 but shit is gonna go downhill... Your dad and stepmom and yours’ close family friend.. he’s gonna commit suicide on Boxing Day... then a few months later your gonna have a substitute and she’s gonna play a music video called get bully... it shows people wanting to commit suicide and one person who actually does it. You’re gonna break down crying because you remember the friend that killed himself... it’s gonna be hard but it will get better shortly after... Until grade 6 at least... In grade 6 one of your friends is gonna get bullied and harassed and put down. She’s gonna become depressed and extremely suicidal... she’s gonna sl!t her wrists and legs. She’s gonna tell you how much she hurts. How much she wants to end it so the pain will be better. She’s gonna ask you to keep her suicidal thoughts and that info secret... you will until it gets really, really bad.. she’s gonna try to commit suicide. She’s going to tell you she’s gonna do it. And you’ll tell her “suicide doesn’t end the pain. It just passes it to someone else.” Your gonna tell her that things WILL get better. You’re gonna get through it.. you are gonna tell that to her and she’s gonna believe you. It’ll start going uphill again. Your going to get a text from her that makes your heart drop. She’s going to tell you that she realized something. U ask her what she realized and she’ll tell you “I don’t want to die anymore.” It’ll stop your heart and you will cry for hours with joy. You’ll know that you helped her. One of your best friends. You will literally save a life and you know what little me? Things will keep going uphill and uphill and better and better. A pandemic will happen. It’s gonna last for a while and you won’t see your friends. You’ll go to a school in another city because of how bad your stepdad is becoming but you’ll meet people that have made your life a hundred times better than before. You’ll realize that you aren’t straight but that you’re a bisexual and you are gonna be proud of it! Your life is gonna turn around for the better and it’ll be ok. Little 2 year old me, your going to become an extremely strong, responsible, and beautiful young girl. You are going to be so strong even in your worst times and I’m so, so proud of you... keep standing high as you grow up little me and be proud of who you are. In the end, your kindness and strength is going to help you so much. I love you 2 year old me.. keep your chin up :)” Thank you so much if you’ve read my comment all the way. Ik im just a random stranger that you probably don’t care about and you probably don’t care about my little life story and the conversation I would have if u could talk to myself 10 years ago but if you do and you read this all the way. Thank you.🥺

    I haven't really watched your videos in a long time, Jazza. I think I had just sort of grown out of your content if that makes any sense. But, even if I lose interest in a channel I come check on them every now and then, and I found this video. I may not watch you anymore and don't really have any plans to do so again, but I'm glad I saw this, glad to know that you're so wonderfully happy and that your dreams have been realized. It's pretty inspiring since I'm close to having to find my own way in life with college or no college, if college what do I want to do, and all that. I wish you the best, man. Stay safe :)

    The only thing I’d say to my self 10 years ago would be ask for more advice. About that time we had a massive earthquake which made housing hard to find and at the same time I quit my job to go back to school. I spent a bit of time living on couches but in hindsight I made all the right calls. I’d tell my self to ask questions of people in the places I want to be in the future

    I've got severe death anxiety and yesterday was the worst day I've ever had, I was so low I haven't even been able to sleep. I realised that I'm falling into a depression, but I do still have a spark of optimism in me, because I don't want to feel like that ever again. If I could talk to a 10 year old on me in the future, I would hope that I was OK, I would hope that I've gotten through the worst of it, and if I haven't then that the better days are soon around the corner, because although I am super scared of dying and I cannot even think about sleeping unless I just pass out which is likely, I also don't want to continue to feel like this. This was a perfect video to watch at the moment Jazza because although it hasn't fully sunk in yet, I am who I am - whether that's happy go lucky or depressed. This is life and life is learning to cope and feel pain but also feel relief and growth and accomplishment. Thank you

    I remember back when I was 18 and graduated high school, I'm 24 now, I found jazzas tutorials. I always liked to draw but around this time I decided to take art "seriously". I wanted to study anatomy to learn to draw my own characters. Your tutorials taught me the basics of anatomy and most importantly how to use construction lines. I have practiced alot on and off in the last few few years. I improved a lot. I started out just doing pencil drawings and have started digital art the last few years. Jazzas videos have helped me a lot in my art journey. While I definitely think I have a long way to go to improve my art but I am very happy with the progress I've made and I know if 18 year old me could see what I can do now is be blown away. Thanks Jazza for helping me in my artistic journey.
