So I’ve been out for about 3 years now after majorly suppressing and basically hating being bi and I thought I was *finally* over all the catholic guilt and hatred I had towards being bi but the other night I had a massive emotional breakdown about being bi which is very ooc for me, and now I can’t stop thinking about it and thinking of my own gender romantically just makes me feel guilty. Does the brainwashed hatred ever go away?
Recovering from internalised biphobia (much like many other internalised issues a person may have) is a journey. On that journey, you will encounter bumps, like the other one – the breakdown.
I can’t say that the hatred ever goes away 100%. but I’m a firm believer you can get rid of 99% of it. Sometimes the thoughts may find their way back again, but that doesn’t mean the progress you’ve made is lost.
I wish you the best and hope you can get rid of as much biphobia as is possible. Sending lots of love. x
