  1. I know this was a bit of a lengthy video, but I really appreciate those that took the time to listen.

    Also, thanks for the kind words of support and encouragement ✨🙏🏼✨

  2. I absolutely loved your video. It was the most honest thing I have seem in such a long time. Thank you for sharing all of this. You are a wonderful person and I really hope you are finding more happiness in your life. You have every right to be you!!!! You seem like such a nice guy and I am sure you will attract a great guy that you will live snd be able to walk on the beach with. Good luck!!!

  3. "The whole fact that I'm gay is a tiny part of who I am" I loved this sentence. You are absolutely right. It's silly to treat a person as gay like this is the only thing he/she is. Moreover why do people actually care about this?. I was raised in a catholic family and for me it's been and it still is a constant struggle being gay and being a Christian and my relationship with part of my family. I guess many people in the church are obsessed with the sexual sin and they can't see beyond that. I know they try to help and, as you said, maybe they had good intentions but that doesn't help at all. And what you said at the end of this video is just another obsession… They don't need to spread rumours and jugde others. Thank you so much for sharing your story with us and I hope things are getting better now for you. Greetings from Spain.

  4. Why are you driving yourself crazy trying to be what others want you to be? You are a wonderful child of God and you need to understand that only you can decide who you are and how you feel about things. Talk to people you feel you can trust and let you make your own mind up about things. It seems to me your church tries to control your life as oppose to being a supportive community for you. No one else can tell you how to live life, that's for you to decide. Life only gets complicated when you give others control over you, as you have done with the church. Being gay is totally normal and is socially acceptable in this day and age. Don't let people make you feel guilty. You are a creative person and to feel alive and happy you must be creative and live out your dreams. You will find someone eventually, don't sweat it. You must be yourself, to do that you must get away from the church. Find people, gay people, who you can get to know and make normal relationships, friendships, lovers, etc. Stay away from the church. You were born gay, as I was, and nothing can change you. You will stay gay your entire life. The church has lied to you about gays. feel free if you want to talk to someone to message me.

  5. A beautiful and sincerely told story. You have been deeply traumatised by your experience but clearly, you are a survivor and I admire your strength.
    Your comments make me think that you still have some issues to resolve but like they say, it does get better. It did for me.

  6. Hi Mikey, I'm sorry to hear about your story. I hope that you're starting to feel better about leaving. From another person who has left the church and been ignored ever since (unless someone wants a favour) I will say that there are good people in the church, but there are so many better people outside, who are not brainwashed into some old guys 'rules'. Keep being you 🙂 x

  7. I still have those dreams .
    Edit: I had to come back and say, I LOVE CATS TOO AND I ALWAYS AND STILL DO MEOW AT THEM 😍🤩😂😩💋♥️💜💛🧡💚💙 ITS UNDESCRIBABLE HOW MUCH I LOVE KITTENS,THEY GIVE ME A WARM FEELIN LIKE IDK IT CALMS MY GAY HEART 🤷🏽‍♀️💯

  10. I do understand what you went through. I also grew up in the church and i had some very sad experiences too. I lived in Jamaica at the time and heaven knows it was absolutely hell on earth.
    Anyways i now live in America where thank God i am free.
    Continue to live your truth bro and all the very best God bless.

  11. #meow Mikey, like am really touched and I can even see the sadness that you are trying to struggle with as u tell ur story. I know you are a good person and very strong to be able to cope with the past tough situation. For me the homophobic of the people around me is so real and am really scared coming out. But I wish u well Mikey and your going to grow and succeed man. Am always your fan you and Gede

  12. Hey Mikey. Ben sent me. You're a fucking gem, no one has any right to tell you otherwise. the ones that matter are the ones that accept you for YOU. it's a literal fact that people who talk to cats are the most enlightened beings on earth 😉❤

  13. It woul have helped to start with saying what church you grew up in and based on my assumption, sonce you still haven't said it, it has to be Jehovah Witness. It's the only church where you are no longer able to speak again to any family member. And that is the most cruelest thing I've ever known from any church. For this, I blame the parents simply because they made the decision to become members of the church. To have children and then ostracized because the church says you can't love your own child "because".

    That kid put a hickey on your neck feels deliberate. Why do that after going through this the interrogation once before already? Why did you allow him to put a hickey on your neck?

    Anyway, that's all in the past now and I hope your healing process has went well. You appear to be comfortable now with your sexuality. And I'm glad you made it to this because if your are still healing mentally, you've gotten over the biggest hurdle.

    Im an old broad (54), and i was raised catholic. I left, because I knew love is love! I am sorry you went through this. It will make you stronger. Maybe you can be a help others. Get yourself right, i mean be you..free. Do what ever makes you happy. Everyone else can suck it! Then you can start something to help others suffering. Do they have the Trevor Project there?💜💜🤓
    Once your comfortable talking about the details…not necessarily to everyone..you wont have anymore quilt and shame. You seem to still have some. I pray you are moving forward and you will be happy and blessed…you are a wonderful man..who just happens to be gay!💜💜🤓😊😇

  15. I SAW U & ALEX, LOVED YOUR VID. & SUB A FEW WKS. AGO. YOU R LOVED, NOW U HAVE A PLATFORM WHERE U CAN HELP OTHER'S. I CAN SEE IT WILL TAKE YOU AWHILE TO FULLY ADJUST, BUT AFTER WATCHING U TELL US WHAT U WENT THROUGH, YOU MADE IT! YOU ARE STRONGER NOW THEN BEFORE! KEEP WORKING ON YOURSELF. HAPPY ALEX IS THEIR WITH YOU! I SEE WITH ALL THE POSITIVE COMMENT'S YOU ARE NOT ALONE!
    I WILL KEEP UP WITH U GUY'S. THANK U FOR WELCOMING TO WHAT YOU CALLED A SMALL FAM. BUT YOU HAVE SO MANY WHO CARE AND LOVE ALSO SUPPORT YOU. EVERYTHING IS GOING TO BE ALRIGHT!
    MUCH LOVE*

  16. I listened to your story and I feel very sad, you don't have to give up, you have to keep moving forward and I believe that God will see you thru. Just be you and everything will be alright.

  17. This is all me right now 😢 I feel you and understand everything you're saying here. Im stuck in myself and I feel like a failure and a lost cause. Seeing videos like this helps a lot. Thank you for sharing!

  18. You didn't mention what church, but it sounds like Jehovah Witness or possibly Mormon. Because they always want its' members closed-off from the outside world and I get that feeling you were being shut-in that way. In any case, I'm glad to see that you found your way to find the happiness you neex for yourself. It seems to have come at great cost because of your family and siblings. 11 siblings, that's a lot to lose and I feel sorry about that. It is quite regretful, but their way of life through the church was in no way going to allow you true happiness. We only live once and we deserve happiness in the one life we have.

  19. He I am John from Holland and I now what you going tro I had the same problems in the church , I am gay and believe still in God and I now Hy lives my and I what to tell you that you are not lost God loves still you , and I think that you have I big hart for people ,I what say so much but I am not so good in English I can cray when I have heart your story , I struggle still whit it ,

    Greatings John

  20. You are NOT alone. Be proud of who you are. My parents decided they wanted nothing to do with my "ungodly ways" and I left home at 18 and was never welcomed back. I am now a well adjusted adult and have many friends who love me. It's my gain and the parents' loss. Keep the faith and keep sharing your beautiful smile with your YouTube family!!

  21. You are a lovely, lovely person. Your soul is so pure. So special and unique. I can honestly and truly see great things ahead for you. I’m very excited for your future. Sometimes we are separated by those who don’t truly appreciate us. It’s a blessing so you can truly soar and be who you are supposed to be. I listened to every word of your story and there is a dignity and grace to you. I also grew up in the “church” and there is a verse they never tell us because it brings too much peace and destroys the fear they try to inject in us. In the very rare time they do mention it, they tangle it with lies and fear. They make such an effort to make us overly confused and self-conscious of things. It’s so evil and hypocritical. The good news is it won’t work. The verse is: 1 Corinthians 6:12 – “All things are lawful unto me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any.” If it’s not expedient for us to live the way a friend, parent, church member might have lived God is still with us and you will thrive. Plain and clear, we are lawful and so loved. Much love to you and Alex! 🙂
