WASHINGTON, July 7, 2014 — #WeLoveYouConnor – Some things are hard to understand Connor Franta is one of those You Tube sensations we hear about. He has over 1.6 million followers on Twitter.
Connor is one of “6 weirdos making videos to make you smile” in a group of online guys who create @Our2ndLife, or O2L (@connorfranta @rickypdillon@sampottorff @jccaylen@trevormoran @kianlawley).
They tweet interesting things, make interesting You Tube videos. Sharing – emotions, what they had for breakfast, whatever it is they might want to share among a generation that shares – well – everything it seems.
What might be wrong with that? Maybe nothing. Maybe everything.
He speaks about the overwhelming pressure of getting wrapped up, overwhelmed by the YouTube video craze. He doesn’t want to be that guy, doing it for fame or money instead of fun. Be he speaks from the heart, connects to his audience and now, in a goodbye video, he is saying this will be the last video he will be making – stating that he has been a very unhappy person for the last six months.
“If we don’t change, we don’t grow. If we don’t grow, we aren’t really living.” -Gail Sheehy — Connor Franta (@ConnorFranta) July 5, 2014
He speaks about being unhappy. About making a decision for himself. He talks about creating A New Chapter in his life.
But really, substitute any person, any life, for Connor’s and recognize that you can also change, make a decision, start a new chapter. A good thing to take away from You Tube.
Even if its not cute babies and puppy dogs. Or kittens. Though Connor’s twitter profile says he is a kitten enthusiast. But really, he just said he doesn’t want to make videos. Great. He made a wonderful decision that is good for his life.
Because he is in so much pain. But then there is a lot of real pain out there.
