    Eugene, you're such an amazing person. A year ago I was very down on my luck, I was confused about who I was, stressed on what my parents would think. I was on the verge of ending it all. I started watching these videos and it helped so much more. I had cut myself so badly 7 months ago that I had gone to the hospital. I was on the verge of a coma and a blood transplant was need stat. I was a hairline of life, a small amount of joy knowing I would live better. After seeing this I've been clean from drinking, cutting, and hatefulness. You've helped me so much, I was basically dead and you helped me so much, thank you. I'm almost on my 14th birthday on December 28th. Thank you so much.

    My heart breaks for him like my heart breaks for Hannah Gadsby when she talks about being steeped in self hate and shame. It is not right for any child to be raised that way. It isn't something you can just flip a switch and turn off. I work very hard both as a parent and a Kindergarten teacher to be a safe space for all. I hope this is the experience of fewer and fewer LGBTQ+ kids.

    8:25 Made me cry :'(. Everyone should be able to accept who they are and others should support. Pains me that a lot can't because of culture or religion. Eugene, you have my support as well as others. Be yourself and love yourself.

  50. Bryan Brochu

    Bryan Brochu8 days ago

    The part where Eugene said that he found a note that he wrote when he was younger (‘’Are you finally happy?’’), that legit changed my perception on certain stuff... Probably because that is a 100% the thing I would do and ask myself a older me. Also, it just encourages me to face my biggest fear, that is to be judged by people and actually thinking that way, so I would just face it, and be who I am. I will just act as weirdly as I normally do and be ‘’me’’ and not give a sh*t about what people think and be happier. I keep on thinking I need to be that way, be more mature, be more funny like that guy, be better than him at that, you get it. I’m not going to try to change my path, and I will just simply follow it and go with the flow. Much love, and congrats man 🙂 🏳️‍🌈
