Past child abuse comes to bit me in the butt
still - You are much kinder than I am. Not that I'm making this about me...much...but....'Glasgow kiss' comes to mind.
I feel the same way PE but my wife gets angry with me if I use the F word. Thanks for your thoughts.
Mcfree good information on gas lighting. I never knew this. More knowledge for my Brain.
Punk that is how I felt but in my new life out of the cult I am working very hard at taking the high road. It really sucks to be kind sometimes. Thanks
Still - lots of admiration for your quietly expressed dignity in the face of dreadful provocation in the group you describe in the OP. It reflects well on your character. Best! steve
steve2 you have no idea how much I controlled myself. I was raised in a household were attack and annihilate was the norm. Then they would say "will it's the truth". It's hard habit to kick but leaving the borg has really helped. Thank you for your kind comments. Still Totally ADD
" Also she told my friend that my past Abuse's as a child I most likely made it worse than it was and my case was likely a very isolated case and not that bad. She felt I have been overstating the abuse that is taking place in the Wt. and there are probably no abuse taking place at all. "
This statement is the red flag.
You are dealing with an unstable person. Don't discuss, talk or apologize to her anymore. Just concern yourself with your health and your healing. She is not remotely concerned for you, or quite frankly other victims of abuse.
Peace and Love.
Thank you Moster for those words of warning. She has left our congregation not to come back so I hear. The funny thing is she said she will never talk to me or my wife again. In other words she is shunning us because according to her I don't like Christian's. Which is not true. So you are right by her actions and thinking she is unstable and we plan on avoiding her.
