    It was "the truth" for me.

    Ignorance and my best friend(?). Once I found out the truth about the "troof" and that I had been lied to by a bunch of pathetic hypocrites, I was outta there....friend(?) or no friend. If she wanted to continue to stick her head in a hole and continue to live the lie, that was up to her. For me, once I saw them for what they were and took a good honest look at what they were really doing to people (myself included), they made me sick!

    I would have to say I believed it was the one and only "truth." Also I loved my family and did not want them to be disappointed in me. Well I realized it was not the truth, and my family is disappointed in me, so I guess I did not accomplish very much except for finding out the most important thing is knowing me.

    Ugg and Knows2much my heart really goes out to you both. It is hard loosing family. You need to do what you need to do to make you happy. Sitting in a KH does not in itself mean that you believe what they say.

    Love, Leslie

    Dear Wildfire;

    Hang in there it takes time for anyone to be able to see through those blinders that are placed on all of us when we joined the cult. Give your daughter time..she is not stupid..after all she is your daughter. You are right when you say if she is not pioneering or in good standing she will no longer be favored, but it does take time and patience on your part for her to figure it all out. I am thinking of you.
