Over the course of the video, the gamer describes how he tried to make a living through Twitch streaming but in the process lost most of the things in life he cared about, including his girlfriend and most of his friends.

The video soon made its way to Reddit's popular r/videos subreddit, where it currently has nearly 40,000 upvotes and over 5,000 comments. Many in the comments have expressed gratitude for the honesty portrayed in Yuber's confession, offering words of sympathy and sharing their own stories in return.
