Feeling anxious and confused.


Recommended Posts

Hey there, 

Since I was sixteen I have been confused about my sexuality and now that I'm 24 I'm still confused. I'd like to give myself a label, just because I feel like I could be more myself if I would be able to open myself up to people. I have some friends who are in the LGBTQ+ community, but I'm very closed off as a person because I'm anxious and worried about those things all the time. Does anyone has any tips? 

By the way. At the moment I've been thinking I've been Bisexual or pan, but I'm not sure. Is it okay to label myself if I'm not a 100% sure yet?

oh yeah, I've just cycled through labels, you don't have to be sure, and no one will blame your for changing them.

Hi!
Stormy_Skies has answered your question at the end pretty well, you can label yourself using the word that you feel defines you the most and, then, change it in case you find yourself being something else.

Either way, the one who is going to know you the most is yourself and, hey, you are still young! You can't have all the answers but you DO have the control in your life and who you are.

Just keep on learning about you and the answer will come to you easily. Don't think of what could be the "right" answer.

To this day I haven't labeled myself and I'm fine, I just do whatever makes me feel good. If I feel atracted to someone my gender - and it's reciprocated, of course - I just go for it without much thought. I just know I'm part of the  LGBTQ+ and that's good enough for me xD

Hey @Alwin

Welcome to our community. It's okay that you're still confused; it really can take a long time to figure out our sexuality. A lot of people want to know straight away, but for those who question, it can often take quite a while, but just know that this is totally normal and that you will get there in the end. I'm wondering, what do you think would help you to be 100% sure? What do you need to do to get to that point?
