Buddy never really liked his parents, and they never truly got along. They argued and disagreed and butted heads over almost everything. They didn't see eye-to-eye on politics, to religion, to lifestyle and how to raise good healthy happy kids.

Buddy is an atheist, while his parents are very devout Muslims. Buddy is very liberal, while his parents are very conservative. And, Buddy is also unapologetically gay, while his parents, not surprisingly, are extremely homophobic.

But, even though on the inside it was really clear that he didn't get along with his parents, he was never very public or vocal about his disagreements with his parents.He still needed a roof over his head, and food to eat, and money in his pocket, and he was afraid that if he shared who he really was and what he really believed too strongly they would kick him out of the house, maybe even disown him.

Because of that, he formed what looked like a good relationship with his parents, but it was totally fake and artificial - on the inside, he just didn't get along with them. They saw him as being practically perfect, a good and trustworthy kid, but Buddy saw that his parents were really flawed.

His mom liked to hold grudges, was very quick to judge people, and liked to enforce really old fashioned gender roles, like boys should do yard work and take out the trash and that girls only belonged in the kitchen and were destined to become subservient housewives. And his father was so invested and distracted by his work that he never formed and real bonds with his children.

He was also upset at the way his four sisters were treated. His parents wouldn't allow his sisters to have any friends over. They weren't allowed to have phones, or do any extra curricular activities, or drive once they reached the age where they could legally get their licenses.

And it was even worse with Buddy, especially when he tried to come out to them and tell them he was gay - twice. The first time, his parents begged him to date girls because they saw his coming out as a real threat to them. The second time he tried they just threw out a slew of insults and homophobic falsehoods ranging from the idea that gay people were in fact mentally ill, to the idea that it was a simple choice and he was just making the wrong one. They threatened to disown him and told him he would be a failure in life unless he "fixed himself."

This all made him so unhappy and he imagined that he would be under the control of his parents for the rest of his life. So, he felt he had to continue to pretend to be the perfect little straight Muslim boy in the house, dating girls and praying and the rest. He didn't think much of it, had been doing it pretty much his whole life, but when he finally confided in his friends they saw it for what it was, miserable and very, very unhealthy. They asked him to imagine what he would be and how he would feel if he was far enough away from them that they couldn't watch his every move, and judge and control him.

That was a turning point for him and, realizing his parents were more like prison guards than anything else, he thought of the farthest place he could go without them having a negative impact on him and still be successful and thrive as a young gay man.

After doing a little bit of research he concluded that California would be the best place for him -- a thriving LGBT community, a ton of diversity and acceptance, and on the other side of the country from his toxic family life and parents. So, he applied to a few schools in California and, was accepted to attend UCLA! It was one of the happiest moments of his life.

His parents were hesitant about it at first, because of how far away it was, but they were happy to have him go to such a highly acclaimed school - that's mostly what they cared about.

Since moving to Los Angeles Buddy has never been happier. He is part of a really diverse community with amazing friends, endless support, and a great education. Even though he returns home on Holidays and has to pretend, just like he used to, he is so happy to be out of that toxic house and on his own.

His next wish is for his sisters, that they will recognize the truth about their parents, follow in his footsteps, and escape!

    Daily Divine InspirationSun 09 Dec 2018Topic: The Flesh A Great DeceiverKey Text: Galatians 5:16-17 KJV - This I say then, Walk in the Spirit and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.The flesh of man is a great deceiver. The flesh is always at war with the Spirit. The eyes of the flesh can never see beyond this sinful world. All that the flesh wants is the pleasure that lasts for a moment. The desires of the flesh have succeeded in turning the world into an enemy of God, loving the vanities of this world against the things of God. Even the Christians of today can no longer see in the spirit because they are being controlled by the desires of the flesh. Galatians 5:16-24 KJVCrucify It All To The Cross: Before you became born again, you were a liar, fornicator, adulterer, prostitute, alcoholic, fraudster, debtor, etc. When you accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour, what changed? Did you crucify the old man to the cross? You used to dress half naked before you met Christ, go to wild parties, smoke, gossip, and even backbite. Now that you are in Christ, don't you think you should follow the ways of Christ and live as He lived? If you have accepted Christ and want to see Him in glory, you must visit Calvary daily; crucify the old man (desires of the flesh) and walk according to the ways of Christ in holiness and true righteousness. Ephesians 4:17-32 KJVRe-examine Your Stand Before It's Too Late: Jesus Christ commanded us to walk in the spirit so that we would not fulfill the lust of the flesh. He also said only those who walk by the Spirit are the sons of God. Beloved in Christ, let the Spirit of God lead you in all you do. Don't be deceived by those who say we are under grace so we can live anyhow. The grace of God upon a man's life should not lead one to sin. Many who lived their lives carelessly thinking they were living under grace only got disgraced into hellfire by the same grace they thought would save them. Romans 6:1-11 KJVPrayer: O Lord my God, please deliver me from the power of the flesh, as I surrender completely to the Holy Spirit to guide me through the narrow way; in Jesus Christ mighty name. Amen.Reflection: Let not sin therefore reign in your mortal body, that ye should obey it in the lusts thereof. Neither yield ye your members as instruments of unrighteousness unto sin: but yield yourselves unto God, as those that are alive from the dead, and your members as instruments of righteousness unto God.

  • Rahma Ganamo

    If u are Muslim u can’t be gay it clearly says in the holy Quran that being gay Is prohibited I don’t want to be rude but yeah and I don’t have any problems with gay people

  • Taz- Cweam

  • im.a.good.child ok

  • Aaliyah Richardson-Charles

    I think Buddy is right His parents are very demanding and controlling because they want their children to control their life like crazyControl their religion while their children controlling their ownExtremely homophobic while they accept their sexuality And treating dem like animals while they want to rebell And worst of all they want their children to follow in their footsteps If they continue to treat Buddy's sisters I swear to God I will give them two curse words and see how they feel about their children so that they can fix all mistakesMORAL:Think about the children,be responsible and loving and let them live their teenage life ( depending on the situation )

  • Comet the fox

    My dude, I give him DIBS for the fact He got into UCLA. But I'm also proud of his strength. It's a tough world out here and I'm glad He stepped up. 'w'

  • Hamed Al Nuaimi

    This video is portraying Muslim parents in a bad way. That's not cool story booth.

  • Erin Connelly

    As a gay, liberal, and atheist girl living in a somewhat conservative area, I relate. I’m out to my parents, who accepted me (yay!) but I deal with homophobia in school. Insults are often thrown my way, and some of my friends really don’t like me being atheist. I hope the narrator of this video will continue to receive the love and support he deserves!

  • Rose Stone

    SO HE WANT HIS PARENTS TO DIE ALONE... Well that's sick.

  • Polska _Surykatka

    I am sure, that one day LGBT people will want to destroy all religions, beacuse they are blocking their way to total gay society. Even now, some of them already hate religons.

  • Ashia

    Parents should love you unconditionally not just because you are "perfect" like no one is perfect

  • Thundergamer 786

    This is not what Muslim do do not be gay

  • CalamityTheSniper

    Every video I see from this channel that is about parents and kids that don’t get along well, I just wan’t the parents to watch that video. That would be such a relief.

  • Thatdino Girl

    The narrator himself is being rather rotten. You don’t remember the good times with them, only the bad. Like people say, You don’t miss something until it’s gone. You should really fix your relationship with your parents until it’s too late and they are gone for good

  • Nobody *

    OMG, gay with muslim parents?

  • Ali BVBarmy

    (a little backstory my parents are absorbed in my younger siblings,themselves, work, or their phones, leaving pretty much no time for me or my older brother which led to me having severe depression, anxiety, struggles in school, and being suicidal) so pretty much everyone calls me “emo” it doesn’t bother me bc emo is cooland i was totally fine until one daymy parents told me to stop being “emo” and i started to cryi cried bc i realized my parents didn’t like my the way i was and it broke my heartnow that was awhile ago and since then i’ve pretty much grown up heartless some ppl call me satanic bc of the bands i listen to such as ❤️ ANDY BLACK ❤️ ❤️ BLACK VEIL BRIDES ❤️ motionless in white, palaye royale, panic at the disco, my chemical romancethen again i listen to this bands bc they have such important messages through their music SO MY MESSAGE IS DONT LET PPL CONTROLYOU AND MAKE YOU FEEL BAD ABOUT YOURSELF
