How did you come to terms with your sexuality. I came across the term asexual about a year ago and I feel it makes sense for me. I've never really wanted sex. I've never really felt sexually attracted. I mean yeah they're aesthetically pleasing and they're attractive but I don't want to hop in bed with them. My sister dismisses me when I bring it up she sums it all up to "I'm just a virgin whose scared of sex" which is not the case. I just feel it's not for me.
I find the best way to come to terms (at least the way that works best for me) is to fake it till you make it. I made tons of ace puns and kept pushing away any negative thoughts (such as “you’re not ace, you’re just faking it”) with “I’m asexual. That’s the label that works best for me right now, who cares if that changes in the future? It’s my life, my experience, my label. No one gets to decide it for me.” Because, really, no one else gets to tell you you’re “just a virgin scared of sex” when they only see through their eyes.
This is a bit of a random insert, but as I was typing this I thought of the song Playing God by Paramore and the line, “You don’t deserve a point of view if the only thing you see is you.”
(Also you are a valid and loved person regardless of what they say. I love you, and I believe in you:))

thanks to @knights-of-ben-solo for requesting Reylo tunes, I’m glad I’m not the only one with Reylo playlists hahaha
The chocobros and seeing their favorite musician(s) in concert
Noctis: acts pretty chill but is screaming on the inside because he just absolutely adores whoever it is their seeing. When they come on stage he shows a little more excitement and sings along with every song, and when it’s finally over he’s sad but can’t stop smiling. Probably went to see someone along the lines of Oh Wonder or Muse.
Prompto: doesn’t keep his excitement to himself what so ever. He needs everyone to know this is HIS favorite singer/ band. He screams very loud when they come onstage and will sing very badly happily to every song making sure everyone knows he knows every lyric. Cries when it’s over. Most likely went to see someone along the lines of Paramore or Fall Out Boy.
Ignis: acts more excited than you think he would but keeps it to himself. Most of the music he listens to is pretty chill and relaxing so the crowds don’t get too rowdy. Will remain calm when they act gets on stage and bop his head to his favorite songs. No one knows how he feels what it’s over. Went to see someone literally no one has ever heard of.
Gladiolus: no one even knows what music he listens to, does he even listen to music? The rest of the chocobros bring him along to their shows, and he doesn’t mind at all, he’ll even get into the music a bit if it’s a particularly good band but no one can quite figure out if he listens to music elsewhere. Goes to see whoever the others want to see.
