When you left, or were planning to leave, did you plan your exit?
For myself, I had created a life outside the organization. New friends, etc, so when I did the fade away, it was not as harsh as it has been for others. Oh sure, there were still the problems with my ex, who is a witness, and still causes problems, and there have been other sticky situations, but I prepared myself. I did not allow myself to ever be so reliant of the WTS that I could not leave them.
For myself, my new friends were not even like a support group. Many had no idea what was going on when I left the WTS. I just had my life outside, and enjoyed it fully when I left.
Did any of you do the same thing?
