Departing for just a little while

    You all have been such a great source of validation to me for the reasons I left the cult. Yes.. I do call it a cult now.. I didnt before coming here. Much healing has taken place in my personal life with this recognition. I find though, that with so much mental stimulation regarding the past, I find myself in a place I am not happy to be in. I am much to sensitive right now to deal with everything here. Obviously I haven't reached the stage of healing that so many have here. I thought I had.

    For my own safety right now, I need a break, and will take one. I am so drawn to come here, feeling for the first time in my life I am understood. But, there is so much in me not resolved.. I have learned this since being here. It is truly a good thing. I am not sorry for a minute I found this site. I do find myself at this point spiraling into a sad depression.. angry.. sad.. reminiscing a little to much.. and not able to leave this site behind once I sign off.

    Anyhow.. lots of love to you all.. your all lovely people.. I will be back soon.

    Tata for now!

    You're drawn here, like a moth to a flame perhaps?

    I enjoyed your posts! Drop in anytime.

    Yes we all need to step back at times, no question about it. (Except for nvrgnbk, but he's got amazing endurance and is impervious to carpal-tunnel syndrome.)

    You are not alone in your feelings, LTF.

    It was no accident that you found this place.

    Please know that you have touched our lives and you are important.

    There's a lot of stuff here. A lot of people who first come here just lurk for a year or two and don't post until they are ready. You jumped right in. So it gets overwhelming. Don't feel bad. Just take a break, sort it out, and come back and see us.

    Take care,

    I will be back soon.

    I sure hope so...we appreciate you here....

    do you remember the saying "if you love something, set it free; if it comes back it's yours, if it doesn't come back, it never was..... hunt it down and kill it."?

    oh, sorry, thats from the Book of Snakes chapter 25 verse 2........ JUST KIDDING......

    be free my friend, be free. .. come back anytime...maybe one day I can drag myself away from here...but not likely any time soon.

    LTF, you go do what you need to,

    Don't worry about us, sniff, we'll be fine, sniff sniff...

    J/K, we'll be fine and still here.


    So now the kewl thing to do will be to quote the 'book of [yourself]'?

    The Book of Roller, eh?

    I think mine would be the Book of Snacks.
