recovery from a cult

Good for you for getting out and working on recovery. It really is a difficult journey because, at least for me, I knew in my entire being that my perp was really miserable inside, yet he was devaluing me. I wanted to let everyone know the real story, but since he was a "professional", I would have looked like the nut. It's the same with spiritual leaders, and part of the reason people get screwed by them. If you can't trust clergy, church members, doctors, etc., who can you trust?
It will take a lot of time. I still get confused as to what was real, and it's been about 2 yrs since last real contact with my perp. Hang in there.
