A young man shared his story of how he managed to protect his mom from Coronavirus during the lockdown; after he noticed how it affects her mental health by watching her YouTube history.
“When I was a child my mom used to play all the doom and gloom end of the world audio tapes about the Fatima/Medjugorje prophecies (Its a Catholic prophecy thing) in our house 24/7 and it just drives her to severe, almost suicidal depression.”
Years later she stopped watching this kind of videos and audios, and she was happier.
However, now, after the COVID-19 lockdown, “I noticed that her YouTube history is once again filled with many end-of-the-world conspiracy videos and other religious videos encouraging people to still go to mass/break lockdown.”
I know that she won’t listen to me. The Young man said. “I have to secretly login every day and click “not interested” on every single religious/conspiracy video I find on her feed,” he added.
Also, I am “massaging” the algorithm on her YouTube account with more spiritually uplifting and positive videos. Mostly animal videos, natural history, architecture, baking, interior decoration, art, etc.
This post went viral and a lot of people encouraged the act and said that they will do the same to help their parents feel better during the coronavirus lockdown.
