In my case, years ago I decided that simply writing truthfully about my experiences in that mess while reading other ex-member's accounts, was worthwhile in itself. It helped lift me out of the doldrums and provided purpose. Yet, we're all wired differently, and what is helpful for one may not work for another.
Of course, we were taught never to prioritize our own personal well-being, and just finding a way to drop that pernicious conditioning is a big step toward "moving forward." Each person's mental and emotional state should be top priority.
p.s. It's been over 20 years since I paid a visit to the "center of the universe," and I haven't missed it.
Trying to remember my last trip to The Center of the Universe...1995 or 1996 or before? Wow, over 20 years for me too.
I'm glad that you have been speaking up for so many years, changedagain. Writing is therapy, but it helps those reading too. ; )
