"Wet Dream Of The Week" Matt Sato - Starring on TV shows like the new "Hawaii 5-O" and the ever popular "Chicken Girls", this teen actor/singer is already moving on to the next stage of his success. So keep going! Keep smiling! Stay beautiful! Can't wait to see what you do next! :)
It can be a very scary place to be sometimes. Especially when you're young. So many confusing emotions. Fears, questions, rejections, and disappointments. When trying to figure things out for the very first time...it can feel like you're carrying the whole world on your shoulders. I'd assume that we've all experienced a similar feeling on some level. It takes time and practice to find pride in who you are. And...equally as important...it takes support from the people that love you.
However...let's say that you had a younger sibling, a nephew or niece, or maybe a child of your own...and you begin to see hints that they, themselves, may be going through the same struggles that you did growing up? I mean...what do you do? What do you say?
This issue's question is about whether or not you would reach out to help family members through the difficult times they may be facing. Now, remember...they're not 'out' yet. And that alone can be an obstacle to overcome. Do you tell them that you 'know'? Or, at least, that you suspect they might be gay/lesbian/trans? Or is that a decision that you think they should do in their own time? At their own pace?
Can you put it off until later? Will they suffer because of it? Will 'outing' them by trying to help make things better or worse? How would you, personally, approach this situation? Let us know! It could really help other people who asking themselves these same questions.
Being through it before yourself...you have the gift of wisdom and experience to give to someone younger who may desperately need to hear it. But that doesn't mean that it's easy, or that it shouldn't be treated delicately. Give us your thoughts on this!
As always, feel free to answer anonymously if needed. I'd be interested to read what you've got to say on this.
The newest Halloween issue for Imagine Magazine went live yesterday morning! So if you missed it, run on over and check it out when you get a chance!
There are new chapters from Lindon Weztser, MrM, Julien Taylor, The Story Lover, and the rest of our Imagine family! Along with our usual fun stuff and a dark touch of horror for the holiday! Also..."Shelter" returns to the list with a new chapter, and part 2 of "Give It To Me Straight"!
Enjoy, you guys! And keep an eye out! Because I have a few more surprises coming your way! ::Nods::
Two of my younger cousins are coming over here in about an hour and a half...LOL! Not much time for me to sleep! But they are 8 and 9 years old...and they have NEVER seen "E.T." before!!!
I am going to watch that movie with them, and they are going to be experiencing it for the first time. This is a monumental moment! Especially since I know the 8 year old is super sentimental, and is probably going to bawl like a baby! LOL! This is a milestone! I'll come back and tell you how it went!
Yeah, it's Columbus Day, so the kids are all out of school. And I have a lot of family here to babysit, but I'm the one with comic books and video games and music so...yeah, they all want to come over here instead of somebody else's house. But I enjoy it. I really do. They have SO much fun! Hehehe!
Anyway, I'll be back soon! So love and hugs to you all! K?
You guys know how much I love Halloween! Hehehe, so don't miss out on our Halloween issue of Imagine Magazine next week! Lot's of goodies will be waiting for you! Promise! And if any of you guys have stuff that you want to submit, we'll TRY to get you in, but if it's too late, we'll just have to get you in the next month instead. We're trying to keep from sending in stuff at the very last minute. I give poor Jeff enough stress on my own without the rest of you following suit. ::Giggles::
But look for the new issue on Tuesday night! Cool? Seezya soon!
