There’s no magical age of self-discovery. After all, did your parents, and their parents, and their parents have a handbook that says, “Johnny’s going to discover his penis and the pleasure of an orgasm when he’s 13 years, 232 days, 14 hours, and 15 seconds old?” I think not. Coming of age and into ourselves can’t be found in any off the shelf handbook about growing up.
Sure there are plenty of tips and tricks for leaving the toddler years, elementary school days, and adolescent, hormone raging “God I’m so secure as a teen,” behind. Truth is, they are just tips and observations. How we go through life, facing the twists and turns, is all individual.
Coming out is no different. Whether you’re 10, 12, 35, 39, 43, 55, 60, 72, coming out happens at exactly at the same time for everyone of us…when we’re ready. So what is and isn’t there to fear about coming out later in life? Click here to find out and then watch this Huffpost Live Segment to get some additional insights!
