2021.10.16 23:25 Nate_fe My family is starting to fall apart because of pornography
My parents worked as missionaries, and our household was always very faith based, and God was at the center of everything. Because of where they worked, however, my siblings and I were incredibly sheltered for most of our early childhood. I'm talking no Internet, next to no interaction with other kids our age (that could speak the same language as us). We were the epitome of good little Christian children. Then we moved to a more developed country, and I stumbled across a porn site when I was 9. One thing led to another and I formed a porn addiction. Right before we travelled back to the country my parents were serving in, they found out, and had a talk about how porn was wrong, and led to all sorts of other problems down the road. I feel like they really did the best they could to tell me why what I did was wrong, and I repented, and vowed to never touch porn again. That vow was broken almost as soon as we were back in a place with internet, and I've been struggling with a porn and masturbation addiction for the past 10 years (though I personally feel like I am on the path to healing since moving out and starting college).
That's the story, and then my family moved to a big city in a very developed country because my parents are tired of homeschooling us. My little brother fell into a porn addiction. Luckily for him, I could be used as an example, and he got back onto the right path very quickly (and I was left constantly feeling like a fraud for being used as the example of righteous older brother, when I'm reality I was still struggling with porn and masturbation). I am incredibly proud of him for stopping his bad habits, but it really did something to my parents, who were now wondering why 2 of their 4 children had gone astray so quickly. Thankful they started being more open about how society has really warped what sex should be, and they've tried their best to be open to talk with my siblings and I about anything sexual. Flash forward a few years, and I move to a different country for college (I'm 19 and started in August this year) and I suddenly start having to make my faith my own instead of my parents. I've taken some huge steps, and would like to think that I'm making progress towards being a better Christian, but I still have a long way to go.
I recently got a text from my brother, who said 'this family is falling apart'. When I asked, he said that our one younger sister, who is 15 and just starting highschool, had been caught reading dirty magazines in school. And then that our youngest sister, who is 14, told my brother that she likes girls instead of guys. Our parents know about the older of the two sisters, and talked with her about it, but they don't yet know about their youngest child being lesbian. My heart truly aches for my family, and I can't really do too much since I'm in a country that's 7 hours behind them, but I told my brother to pray, and to give me 3 weeks to think of the right thing to do. He trusts me to come up with something, because he knows he can come to me with anything.
The thing is, I don't know what to do. My brother can't tell my parents, they would think he's trying to tarnish my sisters reputation (the highly performing good child who is still 'pure' and hasn't had any exposure to porn or other things), and they would think that because he hasn't done too well academically, and there's always been an undercurrent of resentment towards the youngest from the rest of us (she is the favorite child, and our parents never said that outright, but it was very clear in their actions). I really don't know whether to try and 'fix' my youngest sister, or whether to leave things to our parents. My brother said that my dad has been under a lot of stress recently, and I really don't know how him and my mother, a happily married pair of Christians who regularly preach and go out to help others, who are known for being good people and having their family together, would handle having their youngest daughter coming out to them as lesbian. At the same time, my youngest sister is only 14, she might just be saying that so that she can fit in with other kids, or to get attention (she's done things in the past to get attention, but never a stunt like this). I also really how that my other sister will get back on track, I don't want her to struggle with porn the way my brother did (the way that I still am).
I am in so much pain right now I can hardly hold myself together, and I've prayed about this, and I'm so desperate I'm coming to Reddit for help. Please, if anyone could offer their advice it would be greatly appreciated. Please pray for my family and me. Any advice is appreciated.

2021.10.16 23:25 SerenaTheDarkPriest Internet... EX-GF. Relationships exc.
So... emm greetings.
I'm new to this subreddit and... I kinda wanna vent my self a bit but also here for ask about your opinion guyz.
I have a PC since I was 7 and I'm internet since then. I'm 22 (near to 23) and I feel old... like if I was 50...
I like videogames a lot. I'm used to stick to computer for a lot time a day, I do like to do some exercises like lifting tho and I also like to eat healthy. We can say I'm an healthy gamer or something...
I have understood what I want from life recently... and what I want is a woman to love.
Here's my problem... I use to like videogames a lot, spending time a alone, reading books... I had some girlfriends but always ended up in a toxic relationships; My "friends" always make fun of me coz of that, and they also tell me that tho it's my fault coz i ignore the "red flags".
One of them made me realize tho why I ignore those bad signals and I don't do nothing for "stop" them or "escape"... I just trust my partner at the 100% always, someone even said I'm too "naive"... and it's true... but I realized it's coz I think I'm really love needing, I won't tell you about my past exc. but I feel I want to love and I want to be loved...
But I also realized a thing, and here's the main topic... I don't want a girlfriend that plays videogames (unless it's really "casual") or spend so much time in internet... One of my friend told me that in his opinion its kinda dumb. Let me explain tho why I don't like them (I wanna precise that I respect them, but they are just not my "type of partner", so let's say I don't like them as "partners") . After some really bad relationships I had with some "gamer girls/ egirls" I understood some things about me... I feel I'm on internet and I play games because I have nothing better to do and I'm just passing the time somehow... Maybe someone of you is wondering "man don't you have a job or something instead to just play games?" and yes, I'm studying Modern Literature at University, I have almost finished my studies and I don't have friends in there, especially coz COVID situation but also coz my university is kinda distant from where I live and so I can't pass a lot of time with the people I meet IRL in there. However, I feel like that for the last partners I had "be in internet" and "playing games" was something else... Like escaping from reality, which don't get me wrong, it's good but not if it becomes addicting or something like that... but I also realized that there are REALLY A LOT of people like this in internet... and when I look at them, I see a behavoir that was part of me in my past aswell... I'm not only talking about girls (or boyz ofc, in my particular situation were "women" around my same age) and videogames, I'm talkin also a bit more in general. I have met a lot of people that in order to try to get attention online started to do something that they would've ended up to regretting it later on (the classic only fans with NSFW material for example...). I just feel internet it's full of those people nowadays, in part always been, but a way more than how was 5/6 years ago and I feel I don't want to find a potential partner around those kind of people. I know not everyone uses internet in that way, but I feel kinda it's kinda what actually is going on... My friends tell me to don't give up on trying to keep internet as a resource for try to find a potential girlfriend... I feel the opposite, I feel that it's a way too simple for it... and I feel I'm "too old". I feel out of place even if I've been here for years... I feel I'm not part of this "internet", and I don't either wanna be part of it. As I said in the start I feel like I'm 50 and the world is changing and I feel I'm not able to join this "new era" which people of my same age instead can deal with...
I know probably I'm the one being wrong in all of this... but it's also my sense of "good taste". I know for someone may be bad and I'm here also for know what do you guyz think... about my thought of using internet to "find a gf", and all the stuffs I said about how's used internet nowadays. I'm also thinking about stop talking with people online in general coz of this thought... I'm waiting for a reply. Sorry if you had to suffer for so long with with my bad english. I hope you will have a great night or day. Thank you for your time.

2021.10.16 23:25 PMSwaha Will Sonos Arc + Sub + 2 SL surround work in this space?
The photos of the room are here: https://imgur.com/a/yK1eyp5
Planning to get the Sonos Arc soundbar, Sub and 2 SLs to complete the theatre package.
Plan to hang the TV on the wall between the fireplace and the window facing the couch. The two SLs, I plan to mount on the wall inline with the kitchen ceiling on either end.
Will this setup work, or is it not sufficient because of the room's open space configuration?
Plus, the Arc has speakers on the side - one of them might get blocked due to the fireplace stone front. Would that worsen the sound quality?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thank you!

I have been on my first play through of honest hearts, all the people that came along with me died in the ambush and im not sure if it’s because they died or because I killed some of the tribes people, please help I’ve been playing for what’s probably 3 hours at this point and just noticed that chaos in zion is not the main quest and that i can not do any of the other side quests.
