Zac A
ZA: young gay teen, extremely insecure

ZA is only fourteen and feels like he is under extreme pressure. he found out he is gay about three years ago and is extremely insecure and is constantly afraid other people are judging him. He has not come out about being gay.

ZA is a young gay teen who feels pressured to be what other people want him to be and says it is literally driving him insane. He figured out that he was gay about three years ago and feels extremely insecure about himself. He is constantly afraid of what other people are thinking of him. He hasn't come out to hus family or any one else about being gay. He just wants to be able to be humself and be able to live life to the fullest possible extent that he can but in not capable of that right now and he feels miserabele. He is in desperate need of hope and wants to have this load lifted off of him. His family can be rather harsh/judgemental sometimes and he is scared of what would happen if he told them he was gay. ZA has been diagnosed with Social Anxiety Disorder and Generalized Anxiety Disorder and is showing symptoms of Depression. I believe that the cause of all of this stress is the fear of rejection from his family for being gay.

Zac, there was a Beliefnet "Inspiration" email that went out a few days ago that had a reminder in it that you and I and everyone could use: "We probably wouldn't worry about what people think of us if we could know how seldom they do." It's a hard lesson to take to heart (I'm 37 and still learning it), but it's really true, I promise.

Most people aren't judging you because you're gay--most people are too busy with their own problems to stick their nose in yours. For the few who do, forget 'em. They're not worth your worry. They have such empty lives that they have to fill theirs up with other people.

Be yourself, Zac. You're going to be you your whole life, and the best way to life a happy life (take it from this old woman) is to accept who you are. Every happiness has its roots in that secure knowledge.

Be well.

7/25/2004 19:31

Ooh, here's another good tidbit from Beliefnet--it's the prayer of the day today, and it applies to you, Zac:

God adjudges us according to our deeds, not the coat that we wear: that Truth is above everything, but higher still is truthful living. Know that we attaineth God when we loveth, and only that victory endures in consequence of which no one is defeated.

7/25/2004 19:40

Dear Lord Please Bless Zac, In Your Name We Pray, Amen

7/25/2004 22:48

Father God,
Please be with this young man and show him your unconditional love. Help him to face his fears, and please give him the courage and strength to do so. Please heal his spirit and help him to lean on You. In Jesus' holy name, Amen

7/26/2004 00:11

Hang in there. I know a lot of people who are gay at my high school. If your friends are supportive, maybe they can be with you if you decide to come out to your parents. In the meantime I'll be praying for you.

7/26/2004 00:13

Please God,
Be with Zac as he is struggling to fit in with the rest of his peers. Please be with him if he decides to come out to other people. Help him with his anxieties.

7/26/2004 01:38

Heavenly Father, I lift Zac up to You and I ask Your intervention in HIs situation. Father, Zac needs you now more than ever. Wrap Your arms of love around him. Let Him feel Your presence and give him Your peace, the peace that only comes from You. Comfort him Father, he needs You so so much right now. Help him through this so hard time in his young life. I thank You Father in advance for Your answer. Praise Your Holy Name dear Lord! In Jesus' holy name I pray, amen and amen!
I'll keep praying for you Zac! Remember that the Lord's will will prevail and remember how very much He loves you!

7/26/2004 07:26

Zac, i know exactly what you are going through. i myself am gay and had a hard time coming out to friends and family. i came out when i was 22 i am now 29. i thought my family would cast me out, but instead they accepted the life style that i chose to live. they are very judgemental, but still yet, they saw through their prejedusous and saw that the i am still their son and that will not change. the best peice of advice i can give to todays youth, is, be yourself, dont be ashamed of who you are. the lord god made us all the way we are. and we need to accept it before we look for someone else to accept it. i pray to the lord above that he gives you the strength and the courage to face this issue in your life. keep your faith in the lord and your chin up and everything will be ok. if you would like to talk to me sometime for help or words of wisdom, feel free to e-mail me at: i am here for you. i have helped many people come out of the closet. i am a member of the west virginia gay and lesbian task force and the west virginia chapter of the rainbow coalition.

7/26/2004 10:50

Zac I am praying for you. God has blessed you with many things, I am sure of that. Be strong and be true to yourself.

7/26/2004 19:37

Dear Zac,
Please know that you are not alone,even though that's the way you may feel right now.You have your whole life ahead of you,and you must live it in the way you feel most comfortable.People are always going to talk,and will find something to talk about.This is unfortunately what builds their self-esteem.Many people are in your shoes,or have been.Look at all the wonderful people who have written in support of your feelings.Maybe you can find a support group or a counselor that will make it easier to tell your family,and help with your fragile emotional state.I will be thinking of you,and I will pray that God gives you the strength and comfort you need.Please let us all on Beliefnet know how you are doing sweetheart.Take good care.All will be well.
