Of course it's a problem.These feelings have been weighing me down for about 4 years or maybe more,since, thinking about it,I think that I had experienced minor symptoms during adolesence.These feelings are not socialy acceptable nor ecouraged.These feelings will prevent me from having a relationship and kids in the future or being truthfull to my friends and my family.Moreover they will,at the very least,limit my career path,since even if I try my best,companies will always choose a normal hard-working person in order to appeal to the public.Also they are making me feel more and more depressed as time goes by,since these feelings are battling with the social image that I've built. I do not always feel like this,but these emotions have caused problems, so far, in my mental health,my social image,my social relationships and deciding my career path.I mean ,if they weren't a problem,why would I talk about them? Hey there, Yeah, I totally get what you're saying about how the feelings have weighed you down. However, I guess I'm trying to think about the identity and the feelings/worries/anxieties you're having towards them as separate things. My perspective is that no-one's identity is a problem; we are all individual and special, and should be celebrated. It sounds like the problem you're having is thinking about how it might impact your life; what do you think? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
