if we sat down to converse face to face they we would know who is speaking to whom and read body language and discuss differently. It's imperfect, writing at a cyber board. If I knew you, I'd know without saying how you meant something. I really don't know any exers personally and I think I'd like to keep it that way. That was not meant personally to you, just that I like that I have family in my life that were never part of TF. And friends, too.
It did take me a long time to shed that distance we learned so well to create while in. The one that was always on task for a cause and never our true self.
So I threw myself into work and study with a vengeance. Did well. Then got ill. For several yrs my life was my work. When I got sick, I thought everything was going down the drain. Kinda had a bit of a break down.
After that, the past came flooding back in as well as media reports that made it clear the Family was around still, in the home country.
That was some yrs ago, but media about TF, FLDS, brings up that past.
Hope you are doing well now. My life is better at the time. Expecting new grandchildren!
