Re: Depressed about sexual confusion
Hmmm...so, it sounds like your questions about your sexuality aren't necessarily some new found awareness about yourself, but rather a pattern of you worrying about things, you have a history of what your mom calls 'embracing your fears'.
Maybe you need to address the underlying cause here, your anxiety about things in general? When you do that, perhaps your other fears will diminish, you won't grind over so many things.
In the mean time, knowing this about yourself, that you tend to worry a lot and 'embrace your fears', you might also tell yourself that what's going thru your mind, what you're thinking about or feeling isn't necessarily accurate, but rather a reflection of all that anxiety, which can be a bit irrational at times. Maybe reminding yourself that it's just not true might work.
