This may be reassurance but i feel like i just need someone to clear this up. I'm a 17m highschoolwr who is in a mixed friend group with females and males. You see I mostly hangout with 2 girls in our friend group because, well we have a lot in common and i feel like i can actually talk about my problems with them. And also because some of the guys in the group can't seem to ever be free. My mom thinks its suspicious that I'm "only hanging out with girls" and that "it gives off the wrong impression" when she said this i immediately panicked. She knows I've been dealing with OCD and HOCD but she really doesn't understand it and doesn't seem to want to. I've already had so many OCD thoughts surrounding my friends and who i should be with so this just added a shit ton more fuel. I told her I didn't fucking care what people think and i just want to enjoy my time with my friends. She said what i was doing was "inappropriate" it doesn't make sense, i don't feel attracted to men, and I'm actually really into one of the girls in the group. Sigh... Why is everyone so judgemental? Can I just live my fucking life? Stop assuming and just let people decide what they want.
