Jojo, its ok to question things. Thats what you'll be doing a lot of from now on. The process you are going through is confusing and I symphathise with you. Whether you believe it or not it will take a while to dump all of the Family's indoctrination including what liers exmembers are. Its going to be hard. But hang in there, try to have an open mind and explore the world around you. Put the Family aside for a while and get into the real world. The more you learn the more truth you will see to what people have said. Its such an emotional issue because people's lives have been ruined and they find it hard to move on. There's no fame in being branded a excultist either - its more like shame. We all did things in the Family that make us shameful even to this day. My husband is full of shame for the pain and misery his Family beliefs caused my children and myself. I only wasted 6 years and it still haunts me. Please be easy on yourself and rejoice in your family and learn to partake of all the wonderful things in this life. Peace be with you Jo Jo.
