You said: "If the line has to be drawn anywhere, we need this to be a safe environment for people to communicate their pain and share their concerns. We don't need to be invalidated or mocked when we do that."
Thanks for saying this. I just really wanted to thank you for writing this out in a post. It is a family tactic to try and "divide and conquer" any "enemy" and sometimes with anonymous posting (tho I appreciate the ability to do that, too) I don't doubt that there are some Family friendlies that try and set people against each other. At other times, it might be a personal issue (I've had my moments) that triggers a reactive response and someone reads something into a post that is not actually there. Since most who post here were in TF at some time or other, it's not hard to realize that what seemed to be "strength" in TF was due to taking on the group thought (from the top, down) in a highly controlled environment. There was such a gap between ideals I thought I had in the family and the reality of how I was actually living while in it. I can't thank people enough that invest their time and effort into providing a space like this.
