  • Sexual Orientation OCD

Really struggling to resist the urge to mentally check and review things related to my sexuality. I know it's a compulsion but having a hard time resisting. Words of encouragement?

hey! i know it’s really difficult. as humans we just need to know things that are uncertain. it’s in our nature to ask questions and find things out. but right now, you need to fight against that part of you. tell yourself “maybe i am this sexuality or maybe i’m not! i’m going to resist these compulsion”. and i know at first it will feel pointless, you will feel as if it won’t work but trust me it does. there was a time i was consistently resisting compulsions and doing erp and i got so much better until i got scared and disheartened due to my erp heirarchy getting harder and i completely stopped. it does get better, you just have to be consistent. i know you are more than capable, you simply asking this question right now shows it <3
