Hi everyone, I'm Netty and I am a lesbian. I'm very glad I found this website, as I need some help and advice. I recently turned 18, and I was sure once I was legally an adult I could begin to really live my life as I feel I should. I was always afraid of my parents being mad at me and telling me what to do, so I figured once I turn 18, I can start living my own life. But age didn't change the fact that I grew up in a very religious family and, even if I have accepted myself as a lesbian, I always feel guilty when I think of girls a certain way... I'm afraid if I do something my parents or the Bible doesn't agree with, something bad will happen. I don't want to feel like this anymore. I know, deep down, that bad things don't happen just because you're gay! But I can't help it, for 18 years all I heard is being lesbian/gay/bisexual and don't even get me started on transsexual, is very very wrong. I just want a normal life, to have a girlfriend and just be happy, but I feel there's something holding me back. Has anyone ever felt this way? What did you do? Will therapy help? I'm ready to try anything that would help!
How long did it take you to feel like yourself again? I have no desire to be with men, I am attracted to other girls though, but even if I now am sure about my feelings, I still feel 'weird' about it sometimes. I feel like it's going to be very difficult for me to find someone and I'm afraid I'm going to ave to hide myself forever because I'm afraid about what others might think of me. I need to feel like myself again so I'm asking you who are more experienced, how long does it take until that happens? Did you feel better when you came out or can you be a closeted LGBT forever and be OK with it?
