I took a break from writing my story here and now I am ready to continue.
There has been a lot of media about the Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes divorce, the future of Suri and exposure of the reality of scientology lately. It reminded me why I started this blog … to try and put in words what it means to be raised within scientology. It is quite a difficult thing to do, as to this day I am still peeling the layers and finding those hidden concepts that warp one’s outlook.
I think that’s why I came to an abrupt halt when my story reached the years of raising my own children, as I had to think of not only the effect on them, both in the past and the present, but also unravel the effects on me. My family is affected by the long term consequences of scientology on a daily basis and without the support of friends and the Ex Scientologists Message Board, coming to grips with it would have been an almost impossible task.
