the almost brady bunch, thats my family, all we were missing was jan and a maid instead of our uncle. they were always so happy, so balenced in such an innocent dorky way! unfortunatly almost brady bunchs dont get to be happy, no they just look like it from the outside.
my dad turned our family into a cult, he and my mom met at the TM center (trancendental meditation) in fairfield iowa.where i was born, later to grow up in utah. where my dad got worce and more domaniering, the family was a cult now. but i diddnt know this, up untill 2 mo. ago. i just thought we were disfunctional, i diddnt know that TM was the culprit at 20 i moved out. now at 26 after doing research for a book on theologys that i wanted to write, i find out that TM is a cult. then i relize that my dad maches the psycological profile of a cult leader. and all this after i just BAIRLY gained some self confidance self estem and self respect. what has this done to me? im an emotional rolercoster, trying to hang on to that fleating month that i was actually not depressed and was confident. in essence, i had to exit twice.so now im looking for other people that were born into cults, but espicaly ex TMers as i belive there are very unique dinamics to this one that may be very hard fo others to relate to. even in the ex cult croud.for more info about TM go to www.sugestability.org please check my spelling. sorry i was home schooled and we had to work instead of school often. there is so much more but its too long and for some reason when i try to write about it i cant think strate or put it into words well. i think i may still be dealing with a form of defence mechanism, as we were not alowed to talk about the family to others or harp on negitivity.
p.s. thank you everyone ive learned alot from reading your storys, its helped me get through some of the harder times
