For the past month I've had one thought in my head when I'm thinking about random things that just pops up. For example I'll start thinking about homework and then the thought comes into my head "I'm not gay". I'm 14 and I've had various intimate relationships with girls and such and I know I'm not homosexual. But whenever I get this thought in my head it makes me doubt I'm straight. I thought the thoughts were popping into my head from being nervous from basketball tryouts but now that those are over the thought is still popping into my head. This has never happened to me before and I'm not sure how to handle it. I need help on what I can do or what's going on.
It seems as if u have low self esteem. Ur not confident I'm 14 too and ur not gay. U have to believe it's true so that the thoughts would just leave ur mind. The thoughts probably started bcuz someone mentioned or even joked and said that ur gay. Or u might have heard some talk about gays. Believe that ur not gay. Keep ur head held high and block all the thoughts out. I know it's not much help but I still hope it works
It's happening less now, thank you for the advice though. I've been called a !**@! or gay multiple times and it never got under my skin. But one day it just clicked. But now lately i've been having a pretty normal life without these thoughts.
