One thing I find very interesting is that true friendships form very easily between ex scientologists, as we have common goals and common experience, the things that drew us into Scn in the first place, and we can talk freely about it.
Yet while in Scn, particularly after '82 it was very difficult to form those friendships because of the control on free communication - it just didn't happen because you could not discuss how you really felt or thought.
Yes, and even though I have not experienced the total separation yet...how many of those "friends" are there once you leave, get kicked out, dissapear, or "transcend"
outta there? All of a sudden, (I suppose), you need to find new friends.
Well...I have already begun flourishing and prospering as far as that goes.
