I have been in this forum for over a decade. I had a previous account before that I forgot the ID of, and hence made a new one. Even this one is 3 years old. I am not that regular in posting here, but I always lurk here -- now and then. And the reason, obviously, is that coming here feels like homecoming to all of us. But if there is one thing that you would choose as the best thing in here, something that makes you keep coming here, what would that be? Personally, more than the support I receive here, it is the stories and discussions of such diverse nature that I love about this place. We often think we are the only ones with such problems, that everyone else is happy in their place and we are the only ones suffering. But coming here shows us how wrong we are. Even when it comes to this LGBT thing, there are so many people with similar problems, that it helps put things into perspective. When I read worse stories than my own -- stories where parents disowned their own children, stories where people at age 60 finally came out to their spouses and children (even grandchildren) -- it makes me realize how much better my life is and how much worse it could have been. I am not trying to be sadistic and laugh at people's worries, no. What I am saying is that this forum and the diverse posts here make me realize I am not alone, and that life situations could have been much worse than it is. I also love all the hopeful posts where I see people's life changing for the better. The only downfall? When I go out of this forum, everything changes. This is like a whole new world where everyone is supportive about you being gay and what not, and once you go out of it to the real world, things are so different. Yeah I live in Canada, but even here not everyone is as supportive. P.S. Not sure where to post this, hope this is the right place.
