I would guess that most exers are not quite at the same place you are Acheick, ready to acknowledge that SOME good memories came out of that cultic experience, that TF can't have all the memories of years spent there. I know when I try, I can only relate to your #1 (that I have one absoutely beautiful child out of it), then I get stumped. I can't even claim any lasting friendships. I feel resentful that some good can come out of such evil. I'm still angry at the betrayal. But that's where I am right now. I'm sure if you ask me again a year or two from now, I'll add more to the list. In the meantime, I'm glad you're at that place of acceptance. I'm working on it.
