How to Recover from Gender Dysphoria

Giving your life to Christ comes with a lot of freedom from everything that used to be "fine" or "okay" with you. For many new believers, they suddenly feel so much discomfort for anything ungodly.

Have you have ever seen a guy who behaves like a lady, or vice versa? Do you think such guys are gay? And the ladies Lesbians? What do you make of their situation? Self Identity crisis?

What is Gender Dysphoria?

Gender dysphoria is a state when there is conflict between a person's physical gender and the gender he or she identifies with. Here, people may act as members of the opposite sex-a person who is physically a boy may actually feel and act like a girl. The person is uncomfortable with the gender they were born as. Gender dysphoria used to be known as gender identity disorder.

The society we live in is one that misconstrue ideas except if they are put straight to them. The matters of gender dysphoria is one of these issues. However, adequate research has shown that Gender dysphoria may affect one's choice of Sexual partners, mannerisms, behaviours, dress sense and self-concept among others.
 
Also, research over time has also proved however that Gender dysphoria is not the same as homosexuality.  Identity conflicts need to continue over time to be considered as gender dysphoria i.e it generates from the Identity conflict stage up to the Gender Dysphoria stage and subsequently, the homosexual stage. 

However, not all gender dysphorics end up as homosexuals. This is because certain societal measures come in place in form of family, cultural values and most importantly, religion (in African societies). Is there an homosexual factor in persons battling with gender dysphoria?

How gender conflict occurs is different in each person. It could occur in terms of security when with other persons and peer, leading to societal loners and recluses, mental sense attractions and health issues.
