If your parent(s) / children / siblings / friends apologized after all the years of shunning, can you forgive or has too much damage been done?
For me it's kind of a double whammy. Got kicked out at age 19 for being gay AND disfellowshipped. The amount of turn-around they would have to do would probably never happen. But after many years I could see them realizing the kind of organization they are in and leaving. Sometimes I feel like I would embrace them back into my life while other times my anger makes me want to hurt them by rejecting them.
I know. That makes me as bad as they are. As sick as it is, that's how I feel sometimes.
