So I recently came to talk with a therapist about some of the abuse I went through as a child, and although most of what I remember is mostly emotional and physical there was a few occasions where my mom brought home a certain guy that was sexually abusive towards me. And that happened a few times before I was eight. And while I'm totally cool with that fact now, after talking about it I've just felt horribly unattractive and dirty. I also recently broke up with my girlfriend after we talked about it. For a long time before I met with my counselor, I've felt really confused sexually and as far as my sexual orientation goes. Of course now I'm confident that I am heterosexual and I identify with that the most. So, my big question to you guys, (since there seems to be some others who have been through the same situation if not worse) is, how do you guys deal with these types of feelings? I've perused the threads a bit, but I thought I might catalog the replies so I can write them down in my journal or something, and review them when I'm feeling a little confused, you know?
