t2 would say to you that deconversion (or rather waking up) does take friction, it takes heat and stress because then you do get that courage to really look at what is going on and have the courage to do something to move your life onto a healthier footing than is provided by the lies of the organisation. But when you've woken up you don't go back! The members do need to find ways to dismiss all of the resignations and try to make a shell around themselves so that they might not be challenged too, as that would be way too scarey for them.
When did I first realise it was all
a lie? It mostly came in dribs and drabs. But the first overwhelming time I realised it was all
a lie was when I watched a link Rainfeather posted on here about the DNA and that is one powerful video. It is very shocking, that wave of realisation.
Yes, you will recover just fine. Our journeys will be different here as I believed it all until I started to wake up.
Enjoy your happiness
