“I have been a full-time streamer for the past 10 years. I became the person that all my followers wanted to see, and that slowly degraded my mental health over time. I’ve lost some of the best people in my life, either to death, or just let them leave me because of all my bad choices. I hope the music can help at least one other person.”
