Advice to fellow comedians
Seeing how most people have been affected by the pandemic; YY went on to open up advising the youths and fellow comedians on the importance of staying positive.
He went on to urge them to avoid turning to drugs for quick solutions; as they often end up drowning in depression without realizing it.
Everyone may go through depression as we don’t choose it, but how we handle it is our choice. Drugs and substance abuse isn’t one of the ways to manage it. Instead, it sinks and drowns you even deeper. Remember, choices have consequences.
Well, there you have it!
