Therapy session went really well

I talked about my relationship today i think this was probably the first time i have opened up about being a Demisexual to someone other than my mom and bestfriends. Im 17 im not physically attracted to anyone even though i started dating twin brothers 2 years ago i have no idea why. But since im trying to get better and not selfharm any longer i told my therapist maybe breaking up with the boys is a great idea i will be able to work on myself and stop my self destructive behavior with sharp objects

I recently left a relationship I had no business being in in the first place and let me tell you it was hard but it was such a huge weight off! I’m rooting for you so hard girl and I feel you (I’m a bisexual who struggles with physical attraction as well, go figure). You’ve got this though I’m so proud of you for opening up to a therapist it can make so much difference!!

I’m so sorry it didn’t go well :/ but I’m so glad that you feel better! If they couldn’t understand that what you were doing was for your own best interest or if they tried to hurt you/your feelings in some way for making a mature and healthy decision for your own life, then it sounds like breaking up is what you should have done and I’m so proud of you for making such a mature decision at such a young age. And I think feeling a weight off after leaving is another sign that it was the right decision, even though I know it must be hard and emotional for you right now. I’ve totally been there.

After I broke up with my boyfriend I cried a lot but ultimately I’m so glad I did because I really feel like I’ve found myself since and I’ve made so much progress in my mental health in the time I’ve been single and focused on myself.

Plus you’re 17 so you’ll probably be graduating high school soon if you haven’t already. The last thing you need right now is someone holding you back from transforming into the wonderful and brilliant woman you’re about to become. If you focus on tackling your mental health issues (which sounds like you already are if you’re posting on here and seeing a therapist) you’re going to crush being an adult/college student/career woman/all of the above. My biggest mistake at the beginning of college was not getting enough help when I needed it, which is why I’m working my hardest now to work myself out of this depression hole I’ve been digging myself for 3 years. So the fact that you’re tackling it and focusing on fixing it now is a huge deal! It’s not easy to have mental health struggles, but it’s easier than ever and we’re all here rooting for you and sending you love and happy thoughts 💖
