Um, hi guys.
i don’t usually ask this because I hate self promotion, and i consider myself a very modest guy….um, i was wondering if you could take a listen to me singing the Impossible Dream from “Man of La Mancha”. i have a whole story as to why I think this is my favorite song but I’ll just keep it short for now.
this song has gotten me through a lot of rough times and has stopped me many many times from doing something I probably would have regretted. I’ve been thinking about this over the last couple of days and from the support that I’ve gotten here on tumblr and from everywhere I just…..uh….well…coming out was most definitely the best decision I have ever made in my entire life. It has made me so much stronger and it has made me believe in myself more.
I would not be here today if I had not decided to come out when I did. I came out about 2 1/2 years ago not even thinking about what I was doing and I just decided to. I came out to my parents then. I did not come out publicly until very recently.
Honestly I don’t know why. I think I was just very stupid and I thought very strange things and I just felt that everyone would hate me and everyone would judge me.
Boy, was I so wrong.
Coming out was my impossible dream and I achieved it and I want this song to act as a message to other young teens and young adults who are too afraid to come out and are afraid to be who they are. It makes me so sad knowing that people think that they won’t be accepted because, my babies, you will be.
And if anyone tries to step in your way, you tell them “watch your back cuz Ethan’s gonna kick your ass.”
PLEASE REBLOG THIS SONG TO LET OTHERS KNOW THAT THE STARS ARE NOT SO UNREACHABLE.
<3 YOU GUYS. Stay positive.
