Streamers Sacrifice their Social Life and Isolate from the Outside World

Thanks to the growing popularity of sites like Twitch and YouTube, many internet users want to start a career as a streamer, vlogger or YouTuber. However, these professions come with their pros and cons.

If a viral video comes out, someone’s catapult to fame is instantly created, but what happens behind the scenes is just too much work. DansGaming a streamer of Twitch says that to get where it is now Twitch has had to sacrifice all of his social RELATE to be 100% committed to his channel.

Dan said the loneliness he is experiencing at the moment comes as a result of all the sacrifices he has had to make to climb the peaks, acknowledging that this has caused his isolation from the outside world.

“I lost all contact with people,” he explained. “I am often lonely. It’s sad, but so is it. You have to make a lot of sacrifices and if you are not in a relationship before you start or while streaming, it will be very difficult to find someone new later.”

With over 790,000 followers on Twitch, it’s understandable why Dan’s over-dedication to work has caused him some isolation. He is not alone in this opinion. The Gross Gore streamer had a ‘breakdown’ during an Oct. 17 broadcast where he admitted that some trolls on Twitch were “ruining” his mental health.

It seems that this problem is affecting many internet streamers and personalities. With streaming becoming ever stronger as a profession, mental health problems are on the rise. We should all be more sensitive to such situations.
