Hi all, I just moved out here to San Francisco and changed my mailing address and got a mailing from IAS. How. The. Fuck. Do you have my new address? I haven't done any services in over 10 years. It was a weird wakeup call because I got SO SO IRRATIONALLY angry at this letter. I realize that I've been intentionally ensuring that I don't communicate with the orgs to stop myself from being angry. And that was a wakeup call that I need to talk to someone. My parents are field auditors and very active. They've known I'm not into it for about 10 years and it's been fine although I think my Dad thinks I just haven't seen the light or something. But I need to talk to someone about this and be open about who I am. I intentionally tell few people how I was raised because then the stupid questions start but it has shaped who I am and I obviously have some residual anger. So I think it's time to talk to people. I didn't have a particularly negative experience although I'm angry about financial difficulties that arose because my parents were financially stupid. It's not a horror story. The actual philosophy of Scientology, for the most part, I don't have a problem with and many things I agree with. But I hate the organization. What shitty processes and stupid authority figures. Anyway rambling a bit - how was your struggle to move on? How did you finally get comfortable to say "i'm an ex-scientologist, and this is how I think, independent of outside influence" Thanks in advance for responses.
