  • I always knew that connections with people was important but didn’t know it was this important. could you do a video on tips and techniques to help me be more social.

  • Let’s be honest. Maybe it has always been humans’ true naturebut because of most people being selfish, socializing with the right people is so hard that trying hard for making connections can be ultimately useless. Most people around us want to use other peoplefor emotional, economical, political, professional reasonsbut it is all about using people. Almost nobody loves somebody elseand human love basically is limited to parent-child or owner-pet love. Everything else is based on fallacies and wishful thinkingreligion, romance, and about 98% of all friendships are all a lie.

  • this video feels like it should be given to aliens that have never had a relationship. very intuitive stuff here. not sure why it needed to be made into a video

  • National Day Nurseries Association (NDNA) is a national charity and membership association representing children’s day nurseries across the UK. As part of our online training material, NDNA would like to include the above video to support our e-learning modules. I would be very grateful for your permission to link to/embed this video as part of this online course.

  • I am working on a 3 hr training for the state of Ohio Child Welfare System and I would like to embed this video clip, “Social Well Being, Importance of Social Connections” The content is a good supplement to a section in the training that helps participants see the importance of their own social connections and the losses suffered by children and families impacted by foster care. The video would be used in it’s entirety and credited. The training is not for sale or commercial publication but would be used for educational purposes in Ohio and could be shared with other state or international child welfare systems. If you are willing to extend this permission you could reply here or email the foster and adoption contact at the following training link Please include information on how you prefer your work credited. Thank you for your kind consideration.

  • 1:13 note how the success sharers are depicted as men, while the hardship sharers are depicted as women. Says a lot about what is and isn’t allowed

  • I would like to show this to my students however, it is not ‘modelling’ proper grammar when the I is written as i and there are not periods at the end of a sentence. I wonder why you prepare the video in this way.

  • I use to be that person that hides in the corner and never wanted to interact with me people.
    But now I want to put myself out there now and meet a lot of people. However, a lot of people seem to be hiding in corner nowadays. Idk, a lot of people were out going and socialable when I was an outcast. Now everyone is too afraid to show themselves in public. It seems like the roles have switched now lawl.

    I could live without interaction for a bit. But sometimes, interaction is what drives me forward and improves my self esteem at times.

  • This video pretty much sums up what life is all about. After having a job, roof over your head, hobbie, self-care routine… human connection is what you’ll be left yearning for.

  • You cant recover from a episode of depression. Today there are no cures. We are starting to script MDMA and ketamine for hell’s balls. If therapy and psychology helped. We would have cured it( mental illness) by now.

  • Hi, I found your video very useful. Would you be fine with embedding this in a presentation to an internal team in my organisation. The focus is on Building and leveraging social connections. Thank you

  • i get really nervous even more that around people when I am having a panic attack. Looks like I need to do something about that too.

  • It’s all about how you mentally accept things. If you where never a socialized person your brain knows only one way, if you where then become not socialized that’s where problems start mentally.

  • It only harms your health IF you get lonely. Having a lot of social connections does not preclude the possibility of experiencing loneliness, and vice versa.

  • Great video. Great content. I liked the video a lot, very informative. And true. I made a video where I talk about similar content to this one: social online interactions and face to face interactions. The video has some jokes but is mostly serious, if any of you want to check it feel free to do so:

  • Patrick seems to know what he is saying. Keep putting out these videos. I noticed your quite new, but don’t look that young no offence!

  • I am quiet/shy, and all of my friends are in different classrooms. That leaves me with no friends in my class and I really need friends but it is very hard for me.

  • I’ve struggled with some mental health issues and can confidently say that a lot of anguish could have been avoided by just simply having a civilized conversation

  • Showed this to my group I am a QMHP for people with Mental Illness and my clients really enjoyed the information and so did I. Thank you
