How I Laugh: YouTube

Depression is hard, but I don’t think anyone really needs reminded about that fact. What we need help with is fighting it. There are plenty of different tools and such out on the Internet, but they are things that can take time and work and while necessary and good, it’s not what we always want or need at that moment in time.

Sometimes, we just need a mindless laugh. Nothing emotional, nothing deep, just something that tickles our funny bone and one that is uncontrollable. They usually only last a short time and doesn’t necessarily change a bad day or exhausted head, but god do they try their best to.

Presently, I find a lot of these moments through YouTube. There are so many talented and hysterical creators and commenters that the supply is endless. A little search and you’ll find yourself with an aching stomach and wet eyes from experiencing a moment of laughter.

Now, what makes me bust a gut will certainly be different than most. I certainly can’t say I have he best humor around. The guys I follow on YouTube are a bit much and harsh and, well, boys but I adore all of them more than I could probably let them know because they have given men amazing and saving moments where I forgot about my depression or my loneliness and for five minutes or more, I just laughed.

So I compiled a list of these YouTubers to share for those who don’t know of them or, in this moment, you’re ready for a chance at laughter.

Warning: These guys can get raunchy and say things that might not be funny to some. There are things that could be triggering to people and I want some to be warned about this before they click. If you are concerned, feel free to make a comment and I’ll be happy to let you know if this is for you or not.

Also, while I do enjoy games I am not a big gamer (my addiction is with books). But I am easily able to enjoy their content. If you’re the same, not into games all that much, I still think these gentlemen will provide something for you. You’re watching for their personality, reacting, and laughter more than the game itself. I will offer other lists of Laughter in the future, but I do hope you’re excited to start with this.

In the end, I hope they are enjoyed. Despite flaws within the humor that is not for everyone, I love these guys and what they have done for me during my darkest times. With their help I’ve had moments where I’ve remembered how to not only laugh but not think about it. We all need laughter and I want to share mine with you.
