I have been a BSB fan since December of 2018, and I have loved every second of it. I know I am what is considered a “young BSB fan” being in my teens, but their talent and charm transcend age in my opinion.
I have tried to overcome a negative body image for as long as I can remember. I have been on hundreds of diets over the years. I just happened to start another one 2 weeks ago. I joined Weight Watchers at 11:57 p.m. on Monday, March 9, 2020. I was talking with fellow team member Melly at the time. Melly is my #1 supporter when it comes to POSITIVE body image.
Is anyone at this point thinking, “Hey COVID -19, Quit Play Games with My Heart,”? I know many people would rather be home thinking let’s have a party but we need to stay home and just Roll with It for now and protect our DNA.
As a mental health counselor and fellow BSB fangirl, I know everything that is going on is likely to cause additional stressors with your life, your families, and your friends.
If you happened to read our very first post on the BSB Fangirls blog, you know that the boys played a major role in bringing the two of us together as friends and business partners—before ever even meeting each other in person!
When I first became a fan of the Backstreet Boys, I shared my love of them with my best friends. We would listen to their music and watch their videos on VHS tapes over and over. I was not a “teenie bopper” by any means. I was a 24-year-old working full time and taking full-time college credits. Did I think one day I would be still sharing my love with the backstreet boys 23 years later? No I did not. After 2008 I left the BSB fandom. My friends pretty much left the fandom after Millenium days.
As we all know, the Backstreet Boys are all married men with children. When they leave to go out on tour, they are working and spending time away from their families, the people they love.
They are missing important moments of their family’s lives, such as Nick’s daughter’s first moments or Howie’s oldest son’s school plays, things that parents want to be there for.
Years ago, talking about suffering from something like depression was kind of taboo. Hell, it still is in a way, but people are more open about it now.
Does introducing yourself to new people make you nervous? It scares the hell out of me. I wish I could be more open to new experiences and not stress so much about them.
Since joining the Backstreet Boys Fan Club I have met so many friends online. My first Facebook group I joined was the Official Backstreet Boys Fan Club. I felt comfortable immediately sharing my experiences. I began talking to a few people on a regular basis through messenger and was building relationships.
It never fails, when any type of Backstreet Boys news comes out, people’s opinions start splattering about – loving the news, hating it, completely ripping it apart, ripping other fans apart, and anything else you can think about.
You can never make everybody happy and I’m not one to be overly throwing out rainbows, unicorns, and happiness, but can we tone down the complaining a little?
Have you ever felt like you were attacked for just commenting on a Facebook post? It could be just a simple question because you don’t understand the post. One misunderstanding turns into a full-blown attack and several dozen notifications. It happens to ALL of us. No one is immune to “it’s my opinion” or “that’s what I said”.
Let’s start by saying the DNA Tour is already going down as one of our absolute favorites all-around for the Backstreet Boys. The set list has a strong mix of old school nostalgia combined with some new favorites from the 2019 DNA album, leaving all of us to scream our heads off after each and every song!
Brian Littrell released Welcome Home on May 2, 2006. I bought a “few” copies the day it went on sale. I’m the type of person who likes a copy of a CD at work and a copy at home. I always feared I would forget to either take it to work or bring it home at the end of the day.
