I wonder how many years of her life will have been stolen? How many of her "natural loyalties" to her own needs, her own creativity, her desires for friends and family or children. Is this someone who could have come up with a cure for cancer, or written music to bring our hearts alive? Within the scn world these are all unlikely as she is lured down the funnel to ever narrower thinking and ever more present contempt for humanity ("wogs"). How much abuse she will put up with in the SO ( indoctrinated at 4 1/2 - I give her 5% chance of avoiding the SO glamour before she's 16.)
Quote from Happygirl:
So you're spot on Happy Girl, when it comes to kids the church is quite guilty of using and abusing them!!
Human Again......I don't know how to say this exactly. I just want you to know that I really like the way you turned out. Whether it's because of or in spite of the cult, I'm just really glad that right now you are who you are and are here to say what you say,
I'm sure I'm not the only one who finds your posts direct, heartfelt, and inspiring. You would have every right to "play victim" and whine about your own losses and abuses. Instead you are proactive and aware of what it takes to move forward.
I was about 9 I think when I did my first offical comm course. My Dad had me doing TRs as far back as my memory goes.Yeah, her kid was shy. So what? That's not a ruin, that's how we learn who we are, what our place in the world is, and how to relate to others.
Really?? How old were you?
My friend admitted to me recently she got no personal gains from the OT levels. She did it for this exact same reason. Adults are just as affected by that praise as kids.
<rant>I saw my daughter’s huge ruin
