As Josh worked through his “coming out” process, he focused on the competing aspects of his identity: his identity as a Mormon and the fact that he is attracted to men. Josh’s journey has been a frustrating and painful one, and, though he has chosen to take a step away from the church, he feels conflicted about his decision. While he likes to pretend he has found resolution to his feelings, he confesses that he really hasn’t. When he isn’t attending church he misses it, but, when he is, he feels angry. So far, Josh has found that he is able to find the greatest degree of comfort when he is accepting of complexity and coming to peace with contradiction. Now he acknowledges that life is complex for everyone and he takes comfort and purpose in the Mormon injunction to “mourn with those that mourn” as they also deal the with harsh complexities in their own life.
