    Hello, All! At 55 I have come out, moved out, and am now ready to be my true self. I hope that EmptyClosets can help me discover the person I want to become.

    Thank you! Some days I feel like I've been reborn. Other days I miss aspects of my past. One day at a time. The biggest challenge is to let myself be happy.

    It’s a rollercoaster, but it does settle and become easier with time.

    I hope you enjoy the forum. If you have any questions, just ask. :slight_smile:

    Out to everyone
    Welcome to Empty Closets. It's never too light to come out and many people are taking the brave step to be true to themselves and others in light of the changes in societal attitudes and laws protecting the LGBT+ community around the world.

    It can feel like a second adolescence when we come out later in life, but talking to others who have been there or find themselves on the same path can smooth out the bumps in the road. If you have any thoughts, concerns or questions about what lies ahead talk to us. Create a thread of your own, respond to threads that others have created or PM a staff member for advice or support, if you prefer.
