    Welcome kaz!

    You and I have both been in the Org for about the same amount of time - 30 yrs. I look forward to your posts.

    Welcome I admire your courage to walk away like that. Not many have the courage to do that. I didn't walk away I was pushed away. I look forward to reading your future posts.

    Stand up for yourself even if your standing alone

    Kaz, and sameoleme, welcome!

    Kaz, I was baptized in 1962...perhaps we come from the same "generation?" (pre-1995 definition, of course LOL)

    Hello.... another "newbie" here, trying to figure out how this forum works (so please bear with me). If it helps to know a little about each other, I'm female, mid-40's, much too "independent" for the WTBS, and healing after several years. Married 15 years to an elder with "more issues than Time magazine," which he was great about keeping hidden except from me. Divorced (nope, no adultery involved; call it a chance for sanity), left the "organization," discovered I was pretty okay after all, DA'd, but years later in a moment of weakness and trust went back (go ahead and call me a fool), only to discover I had grown so far past my old "friends" (and actually SCARED them), got burned by an elder in a relationship (who says elders aren't human? LOL), and finally recovered from all the damage that has been heaped on me over the years. I was wondering if anyone else has a similar story, or would just like to chat about their own experiences.

    ... i assume i'm posting correctly then???

    Yeah I guess. You do want those porn images to show up as a background to your post, yes?
