I consider myself an intelligent woman...maybe not strong on the 'common sense' front, but academically I've done pretty well...so...how on earth did I not see through it all when I was studying in the beginning???
I remember worrying about their 'sales pitching' styles and their arrogance of believing they had the 'truth' ...but still I got involved and became totally immersed in it all. I feel like I sacrificied our whole family to them, who now shun me.
Yesterday, my new son in law, he's a lawyer, asked me how I could have believed it wasnt a cult (topical word this week here) he said he didnt understand how I could have been persuaded to believe it all and trust them with so much and for so many years.....
I feel ashamed of myself that I did and that I brought all this upon our family...anyone else relate?
