Magic Mirror: Being Brave By Being You


Hello readers, I guess this is it, my first review. I want to thank you so much for writing in, it really means a lot to me that you feel comfortable enough to share with me. Last week I noticed that most of you are feeling lost. You are fighting who you are, and what you feel for others. So today we will discuss how we can…how we should…be ourselves. 

The thing about being you, about being who you are, is that you have to do what makes you happy. So don’t be afraid of what others think of you. Accept yourself and move on, and maybe others will accept you. If they don’t, then they aren’t worth worrying about. Now, let’s get to this week’s questions:

“Dear Magic Mirror, I’m getting to that point in my life where I’m really confused about my sexuality. I tried dating a couple of girls but I never felt the feeling of love. Maybe I’m starting to like boys? I could really use some help because I know I’ll get made fun of if people found out I like boys. But since this is anonymous maybe you could give me some good advice. Thank you.”

I know that it can be hard to be yourself, to follow your heart. If you really feel curious, if you really are at a point in your life where you aren’t feeling a connection with someone, then all I can say to is that you owe it yourself to try and find that connection. Love, attraction, intimacy,  it’s truly never easy, and it won’t be any easier with someone of the same sex, but it is worth it.

Bottom line: Be yourself and the rest will fall into place.

I know it probably feels as though you’re caged right now as if your fears of being mocked and ridiculed are surrounding you and boxing you in. You may not fully understand or accept who you are, but I’m telling you that if you can accept who you are, all of who you are, then you can truly be free, and freedom is power. Don’t be bound by the rules of society, live your life the way that you choose. If anyone has a problem with it, if any friend of yours leaves you because of it, then they weren’t truly your friend. It will be hard at first, it will hurt, but you will experience a freedom that most may never know. You will be yourself and no one will ever take that away from. Anyone who doesn’t like it isn’t worth the time or attention.

Bottom line: Be yourself and the rest will fall into place. I hope that you found the answers you were looking for and please let me and the rest of the readers know how it goes.

“I can’t decide on if I want to ask my crush, who is a boy, to homecoming or go with my girlfriend (aka cover up)!?!?!?!?! Please help Magic Mirror, and hurry!?!?!?!?!?!”

It seems to me that you’re at a crossroads. You want to go to homecoming with a boy, but you have a girlfriend, one who you seem to use as a cover up. The way I see it is that if you really want to go to the dance with this boy then the only thing standing in your way is you. You owe it to the girl that you are with to tell her the truth, to tell her that you need to be true to yourself and that you have to start being who you truly are. She may be mad at first but in the end, she will understand.

But remember that you should be honest and sincere when you ask. Just be you.

You owe it to the guy you like. He needs to know how you feel about him. He needs to know that there is someone out there who has feelings for him. More importantly, he needs to know that it’s you. Whether he feels the same way is up to him, but no matter how he feels or reacts, you finally know how he feels. You shouldn’t expect anything else from him other than total honesty, whether it hurts or not.

Bottom line: Let them know. Good luck, I really hope everything works out for you, and be sure to let me and our fellow readers how everything goes.

“All knowing Magic Mirror, I seek your wisdom for an important matter. I have been contemplating this idea for a while. There’s this one guy who is so handsome and tall. I would like to know how to ask him out. plz get back to me before homecoming. I need to know NOW. thx.”

You should ask him the way you’d want to be asked. I’m not saying that you should get him a horse-drawn carriage or anything but maybe you should try finding a theme that represents him and apply in your Homecoming Proposal. Try the sport that he might play, his favorite movie or tv show, or even his favorite superhero. No matter what it is, as long as it is something that resonates with him and how he feels, then you will be golden.  But remember that you should be honest and sincere when you ask. Just be you.

Bottom Line: Be creative, but be you. Good luck and let us know how everything goes!
