A Swedish YouTuber runs a channel on the platform called ‘Never Give Up,’ where he shares his insecurities about being perceived as unattractive.

He explained how challenging it was for him, as every video he came across on YouTube featured a normal or attractive guy.

In the video, he expressed, ‘My entire life, I have been treated quite badly. I feel really alone, and I felt like searching YouTube for people with the same issue as me – being really unattractive.’

He then listed all the physical features about himself that he does not like. This video was watched over 20 million times, but one comment changed his life forever, as per UNILAD.
