Noah Webster's 1828 Dictionary

*Repent

1. To feel pain, sorrow or regret for something done or spoken; as, to repent that we have lost much time in idleness or sensual pleasure; to repent that we have injured or wounded the feelings of a friend. A person repents only of what he himself has done or said.

2. To express sorrow for something past.
Enobarbus did before thy face repent.

3. To change the mind in consequence of the inconvenience or injury done by past conduct.
Lest peradventure the people repent when they see war, and they return. Exo 13.

4. Applied to the Supreme Being, to change the course of providential dealings. Gen 6. Psa 106.

5. In theology, to sorrow or be pained for sin, as a violation of God's holy law, a dishonor to his character and government, and the foulest ingratitude to a Being of infinite benevolence.

Except ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish. Luke 13. Acts 3.

REPENT', v.t
1. To remember with sorrow; as, to repent rash words; to repent an injury done to a neighbor; to repent follies and vices. [See Repentance.]

Repentance

1. Sorrow for any thing done or said; the pain or grief which a person experiences in consequence of the injury or inconvenience produced by his own conduct.

2. In theology, the pain, regret or affliction which a person feels on account of his past conduct, because it exposes him to punishment. This sorrow proceeding merely from the fear of punishment, is called legal repentance, as being excited by the terrors of legal penalties, and it may exist without an amendment of life.

3. Real penitence; sorrow or deep contrition for sin, as an offense and dishonor to God, a violation of his holy law, and the basest ingratitude towards a Being of infinite benevolence. This is called evangelical repentance, and is accompanied and followed by amendment of life.

Repentance is a change of mind, or a conversion from sin to God.

Godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation. 2 Cor 7. Mat 3.

Repentance is the relinquishment of any practice, from conviction that it has offended God.

there was at one point where i lived as male ( with a unisex name) i changed  my female name to a unisex name but i have OCD and voices telling me to do things...

Note this very next verse followed by your signature, it's highly likely where those voices are coming from:

Ephesians 6:10-11The Armour of God
10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 
11 Put on thefull armour of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s
schemes.

Ephesians 6:12  For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

And what we as Christians put on that our Lord provides during these times:

Ephesians 6:13-18  Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.  (14)  Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;  (15)  And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;  (16)  Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.  (17)  And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:  (18)  Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;

Praying Ella, for you, and your husband.

To “ change one’s mind” about who YOU are ( a hell bound,Hell deserving sinner- NOT somebody who is “ good enough”) and to who JESUS is ( He is your ONLY hope of Salvation because He died for your sins and was resurrected from the dead) is the repentance God demands for Salvation .The other types of repentance which involve regret and reform and all that other stuff you have been told all your life’s is part of God’s plan to transform you into the image of His Son.Let go and let Him finish “ the work He started.

Why did Jesus suffer, Ella?  Please know; BECAUSE HE LOVES YOU.

ISAIAH 53:4-5

Surely He has borne our [g]griefs
And carried our [h]sorrows;
Yet we [i]esteemed Him stricken,
[j]Smitten by God, and afflicted.
But He was wounded[k] for our transgressions,
He was [l]bruised for our iniquities;
The chastisement for our peace was upon Him,
And by His stripes[m] we are healed.

God often reaches us when we are at our lowest point.  Never do harm to yourself.  You are a child of God, whether anyone else acknowledges that is immaterial.  If you are having serious feelings of depression, you might try getting help at Catholic Charities.  If worse comes to worse, go to the closest hospital emergency department.  They will help you.  Never give up.
