When I am travelling in the bus and there are girls on that bus I keep my eyes down as I have a fear that they will tell everybody that I am molesting them or trying to touch them as those are the actual thoughts that continuously come to my mind. I don’t like thinking this way!

Whenever I go to my real aunt’s home I get attracted to ‘even’ her! What is wrong with me! My eyes follow her chest or hips whenever she bends. I have to control myself from not touching her. Recently she caught me looking at her chest, so now when I go to her house, I am always afraid, guilty and end up stammering in front of her! She must be angry with me as she ignored me the last time when I touched her feet. But even then, I cannot control my gaze and take it away from her body.

What you have described is a common problem. It is a problem with obsessive intrusive thoughts and this condition can be extremely frustrating. Obsessive means they come again and again. Intrusive means they seem to overshadow all other thoughts and keep playing in your head.

In your case, these thoughts are sexual in nature (which again is quite common). Such thoughts are accompanied by excessive guilt and shame as we grow up being taught what is acceptable and what is inappropriate. When one gets such repetitive (sexual) thoughts about people around us or deities, the individual harbouring them ends up feeling shame and guilt. As the thoughts are triggered often enough and you have grown up being taught that sexual feeling is bad, especially for certain people (in your case an aunt), a cycle of shame and anxiety is formed.

When you had such thoughts for the first time, you must have become overcautious and since then every time you were in the bus or you saw your aunt, the thoughts came automatically- followed by the familiar guilt and shame. You then tell yourself this is wrong. I should not do this. How can I think like this?
