Okay, I'm just going to throw this out there: is it possible that coming out a bit later in life could ever be a good thing? Are there any positives to it that people who come out when they are teenagers don't get? I ask because I'm not satisfied with the answer that is typically given to people who (had to) come out late: there's nothing you can do about it, so just try to not think about what might have been. I want there to be something positive for me in this particular experience. I've gotten tired of only hearing that coming out late is a tragic thing; I have much the same anger, regrets, and deep, deep resentment that many other people in this forum have, and I want there to be more to this experience than just that. Thanks.
