I'm tired and have been struggling with same sex attraction. I know there's nothing wrong with it but I still want it all to go away.

Sorry mods, just NSFW tagged it so it wouldn't appear on Ovarit to those who aren't logged in.

Why? It’s like any other random impulse, I think. Sometimes we’re attracted to people we don’t actually want to be with. Some people have this a lot. But it’s just a thought, and the more you try to ignore thoughts, the more you’re feeding them without realizing it. No way out but through, sister.

Not not say you have to indulge whatever feelings, but you need to face them and be honest with yourself about what it means to you. If we can’t be honest with anyone else, we should at least tell the truth to ourselves.

Knowing what that shows you will make deciding what you want to do moving forward easier, and you will be able to do so. Moving on isn’t something we can just decide to do one day.

Been bisexual since I was anything, and I only recently learned that it’s normal for the different feelings to ebb and flow. Sometimes I’m seeing beautiful women everywhere, sometimes I’m way into guys, sometimes I’m not in that headspace at all and feel little attraction for anyone. It’s shocking sometimes just how far our perception can swing from one day to the next. Keeping a journal is the only way I know to even begin to keep track lol

Love and luck to you, you are not alone <3

Have been offline quite a bit due to RL, but thank you, I appreciated this especially:

I'll keep working on it, thank you!

Whenever I feel myself struggling, I try to pinpoint what exactly is making me uncomfortable. For me, it's trying to overcome societal homophobia. I don't have a problem with loving women, but I chose to accept others' problem with it. I remind myself that love is love

I think for me, I intellectually know there's nothing wrong with it, but it feels wrong anyway. (And doesn't I suppose, since I still lost my head over my ex, but when you're in the moment I guess that falls away.) It feels like I'm - I guess it feels like I'm committing some sort of transgression against her, and that it's messed up. I don't know, but thank you, I guess I have more work to be doing on this.
