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!
I hope this is the right place to put this topic, I just wanted to talk about it for a bit, since it bothers me so much! Last year, after the earthquakes tragedy in Italy, I have read something very disturbing: one Italian priest blamed the tragedy on gay civil unions! This is not only outrageous, but absurd in so many ways! But that's not the point. It's not the first time, you know, there were other tragedies LGBTs were blamed for (other earthquakes, hurricanes, the tsunami back in 2011!). My point is, why do you think this happens? It just doesn't make any sense.
