• Valeria,

    I am sorry that you ended up dropping out. But hey, life is like a roller coaster, with up and downs, and specially when the “down” comes, you need to stay strong and be positive. All your strength will raise you from this situation. You should definitely use this situation as a motivation to your future and always remember, with…[Read more]

    Hey Maacs,

    Hello little Maacs, I know how hard it is to go through changes during your teenage times.

    I know you are only 14 years old and really scared to tell your parents about who you

    • Marcus,
      First of all, go you! Keep owning who you are, because, if you rock you, if you wear you proudly, and you own it, there will be people who love you for it. Granted, there will be people who hate you for it too, but that’s just a part of life. To be honest, I wish I had realized that sooner. I am bisexual, I try to own it, and I don’t really do or say or think how people want me to. For the longest time that scared me, and I’m just now starting to own it.

      So thank you for reaffirming the weirdness that is my brain. Sorry for getting really deep on what is for both of us a graded assignment.

      Don’t forget , always be yourself and let your glitter come out 😀

    • This was such a brave and amazing thing to do. Most people are so scared to let it be known that they don’t tell anyone. They just hold it in. Trust me, I know people in my family that have done it, but once you let it be known everything in life will be so much easier. You won’t be scared about how someone will feel about you anymore or how someone will treat you. If your family loves you for you, then they should have absolutely no problem accepting you for who you want to be. So good luck and congratulations for making this big decision that you did! It was the biggest, hardest step and you achieved it. I’m proud of you! Never be afraid to show who you truly are. Inside and Out.
