There is another actor that is very seldom treated in the literature, the direct communication one receives from victims. This communications are very much a factor in believing others through preponderance. I was never abused but heard about abusive behavior and was able to witness facts (not in TF) so that similar allegations in my latter years are believable.
With respect to my life in TF, I observed similar patterns and activities that led me to have concerns and to see through their publications what their real intentions were. I had no doubt that David Berg was a sick dog and his family all sick puppies including his sick bitch. That's when I left and I wish now I had left much sooner.
And I was never physically abused in TF. All the abuse was emotional and mental.
