  1. It was so heart wrenching to see what these men experienced as young boys and teenagers. 3 even being male prostitutes. How horrendous. I hope that in this brief time Iyanla can help them heal in some way from all the trauma they’ve experienced. As someone whose experienced being raped, I know it changes you. I can’t imagine having to deal with that as a child or teenager and not understanding fully the sexual feelings behind it and feeling violated. I applaud their courage and dexterity to speak on this bc black men are labeled as weak if they show any emotions.

  2. This is so sad but it just behooves me that someone did something to you so terrible and you use this same act as a way of life!! Anything that happens to me that hurts me I don’t want any part of obviously they’re looking for that same pain in they’re lives to happen over and over again. You can’t live in the present while allowing your past to dictate your future!!
