Thanks for your input Tina, it's of great value, and refreshing to hear someone apologise for their part in what has happened, thank you - it takes humility and courage, particularly in such a public place as this. I personally feel some leaders were as much victims as those who didn't have such responsibility, if not more so.
I'm so sorry for what you and your family have been through, and so many others, and I wish there was some way to fix things and undo the damage that has happened over so many years.
Han, I admire you're creativity in making up stuff for your journal! I can remember similar such exercises from when I was young, but I was always to scared to make stuff up, because I thought they'd 'discern' it and know.
I never ever really felt spiritual enough for KCF, never ever really felt good enough for anything, but as has been pointed out numerous times by references to websites etc. this is normal for an abusive system and in a cult, and it's so sad that so many people who have so much to give end up leaving because these things put in place to control ultimately drive them away and do so much damage and make people feel so unloved. I am ashamed for my part in it all, ashamed that I never had the courage to ask questions and confront whilst there or when I left, ashamed that I blindly followed and thought bad of others who tried to open my eyes or left, ashamed for trusting so implicitly people who have now proven themselves to be so untrustworthy.
