Thanks for posting this interesting topic! Though I am not very closeted anymore I did spend the vast majority of my life hiding my feminine impulses behind closed doors.
I did finally break free with some help from the girls here, and some local girls who gave me the chance to try to blossom, which I did.
There are so many who for various reasons cannot bring themselves out into the light, and everyone’s situation is different, so I can’t what is right or wrong for another, except for me bringing Amy out into the world has been a great experience.
My only regret is that I didn’t find a way to let myself out of my cage sooner in my life, as I’m now mid to late 60’s and really didn’t get out till a little over a couple of years ago.
