I have no idea if you will read this but on the off chance you do I wanted to thank you for all you’ve done for me. I have only been fallowing you for about 3 years now but like many of my fellow markiplites you have helped and inspired me a GRATE deal. Before I found you I honestly felt lost and like I had to hide myself in a box see, I’m a trans guy and I know that some of the world at least doesn’t take to kindly to that. I live in a very small town witch don’t get me wrong is grate but, as I’m sure you know people can talk to much. You are a HUGE part of the reason I feel confident in being myself no matter what anyone tells me. So go back three years to when I am browsing around on youtube and I stumble across your gaming channel and think “ a gamer hmm” so out of curiosity I click a video just to see. It happened to be you playing a terror rift game you were walking around some kind of asylum and no I didn’t make it all the way to the end the first time but,a few days later I thought “come on,if he can deal with it so can you” This was the first time I screamed with you, felt good lol. That wasn’t it tho you just have a way of connecting with us that I haven’t experienced before,you talk to us and not at us as some others may do. I really feel like as you have said that we are all on the worlds biggest couch playing together. It didn’t take me long after that to look froward to every other video I could watch old and new I could spend days doing so. I also saw what an amazing community you have and how awesome and accepting everyone is I know that didn’t happen on its own. So that was it I got hooked watching a gamer who calls him self Markiplier someone who when he tells us he cares means it and doesn’t just say it as “throw away words” So from the bottom of my heart thank you for helping me see that being me is fine and if someone has issues with it its them not me.
Thank you @markiplier for EVERYTHING.
