Yes everyday I question myself if I really am guy and I spend time after time after time trying to figure out my sexual identity 🙃
Thinking if u r is the compulsion an its making it worse as it sinks u deeper and deeper into the cycle of trying to figure it out and all its going to do is make u think u really are gay. I was like this too. The more I thought about it or gave in to an intrusive thought or feeling, the more I felt like I was homosexual but once i stopped with all the thinking over something that wasnt true it went away FAST. I thank God I got out of that vicious cycle.
Yes, you are right. It’s the compulsion that’s driving me deeper into this cycle. Can I ask, what Reponse Prevention Message you found most useful in stopping this compulsion? For example, was it “maybe…maybe not?”
@anon1234 I didnt use the maybe maybe not 😂 because I know that I am straight despite how confused I was. What happened to me is that I would do the compulsion and it wouldn't stop but wen I wouldnt compulse, I found that the ocd was cooling down. I would mess it up tho by going back to thinking about it. So then I thought what if I just ignore it. So I did and I got out of the cycle and the thoughts stopped coming. So the message i used is: ignore it 😂
