I have experienced this sexual orientation since childhood, and I am confused about what to do, and honestly I feel depressed, and want to recover. at this time I also have a lover of the opposite sex, I try to love him. but part of me like to reject it, and I always insist that I continue to like women of the opposite sex, unlike the same sex, I there is more interest in their heads. and I am confused not knowing what to do, so that I can return to normal like most people. n
Good afternoon Desy, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. The discussion about liking the same sex and the like has become a hot topic discussed in recent times both at home and abroad. And even now, it seems that there is still no agreement on how to respond to this phenomenon.
Likewise in the world of health, there are some experts who consider it a normal thing, and some are not. But because the context of your question, you want to like the opposite sex like people in general, we will emphasize the opinions and theories of some experts who think this is a disease.
In the development of human psychology, there are many things that a person goes through, even from a time when he cannot remember. The theory regarding this has been put forward by many experts such as Sigmund Freud, Erikson, and Jean Piaget, which in essence, how we are now, is very much influenced by how we pass through infancy, toddler, toddler, and children. In your condition, what you feel now can happen because you lack the role of a mother figure, have had memories of being hurt by men - which is not only romantic, but it could also be that when you were a child, you were physically injured by the person you recorded as male traits, or you subconsciously hate men because you've seen male-like behavior hurt women, your mother for example.
To know this, and to be able to find a solution, the only way is to consult a psychiatrist. Your psychiatrist will try to find out your history and tendencies through interviews, filling out questionnaires, and possibly through hypnotherapy methods. It is also possible that you have levels of the hormone testosterone above normal, which makes you prefer a gentle figure to women. All of these things will be analyzed by your psychiatrist.
Meanwhile, since it is a complex matter and may have deep roots, there is nothing independently you can do. You just need to believe that you are young and still have many possibilities. Psychologically, you are still developing. You don't need to force what's on your mind, because apart from sometimes people underestimate mental disorders, for the sufferer, torture is real. Ignore the pressure from people because you are not at the age where you should have a life partner. Focus on what is more important to you right now such as learning achievement and experiences, and have regular therapy in between. So, hopefully it answers your question.
