Christmas can be hard for anyone who has lost family for any reason, and a time when the unfairness and isolation caused by disconnection hits hardest amidst the media hype of happy families and sharing. I’ve noticed a few posts on another thread about it and the quiet sadness. I think the hardest part is not being able to do anything about it or the shadow boxing if you try. Nobody else really knows what you go through or the complicated situations that have occurred. Any admission of distress for targets of ‘fair game disconnection’, (which is what I like to call my particular scenario) is a stat for OSA. Well fuck ‘em. It does hurt. It is designed to hurt. It hurts because it is so unnecessary and so evil and leaves one feeling powerless. Scientology wants us “SPs” to go die under a rock and I for one won’t do that. After a lengthy talk with someone who supports me, the isolation factor came out as a pivotal point. We are a community here, we can do something about that - so let’s do the only thing we can do and stand together, tell our stories and send out love to those who have been manipulated into disconnection. I send my love to those couple of my family members out there who have chosen their 'eternal salvation’ over their family. And all the extended family who really don’t know what it is all about, not even scientologists, yet choose the easier path of shunning due to lies and emotional blackmail. In my case there are a lot of them, unfortunately 4 generations of the scientology influence makes it almost impossible to change, separation is a way of life now. Yet that doesn’t mean it has to stay that way and that love doesn’t exist. It’s there ... Merry Christmas to all my fellow exes and a special load of love to the people here who suffer from disconnection. We are with you.
