I am bisexual. When straight women compliment eachother by acting overly gay for one another...obviously they mean no harm but it still feels so hurtful, I can't tell if my past is messing with me. Should I look at this differently and embrace it?
Hello friend! I can imagine that experiencing these moments can be very hurtful for you, and I’m very sorry. Things like this can be difficult because, like you said, they aren’t intentionally doing it to offend you, but none the less it still hurts to see it happening. Although, unfortunately we cannot control the actions of anyone else but ourselves, and so, with any external matter that we cannot change, we must try our best to live happily, regardless.
Again, I’m very sorry that you feel that way and you will always have the right to feel the way the you do. I know that it seems like a very inconsiderate act. Although try to remember they aren’t trying to intentionally hurt you, and are most often times just doing it to be silly. Focus on accepting yourself exactly for who you are, and you will be that same beautiful person regardless of what show others may put on around you.
I hope you have a good day friend. Best of luck, and take care!
