Struggling with Gender Identity?
Gender Identity refers to the relationship between an individual’s sex and gender; meaning an individual’s self-expression of masculinity or feminism (gender). An individual’s gender identity could differ from his/her sex or physical appearance.
Sexual orientation refers to an individual’s sexual desires, feelings, and identification. Sexual orientation can cover many different categories but the main three are heterosexual, same-sex, and bisexual orientations.
When to Get Help
It can be difficult to discover gender identity and sexual orientation at times. Individuals may feel confused and lost. They may feel alone while peers around them seem to know themselves with ease. This time could become increasingly difficult if an individual does not have family or friends that support him/her in his/her choices. These individuals risk the development of depression in these types of situations.
