Reminder about basic rules here
This is NOT a place to criticize any specific group (church, college, cult, party or whatever). There are lots of places on the web where you will be encouraged and supported in your resentments. . . but this is not one of them. It's just not OK here. It is ok to be angry, it is ok to be damaged, it is ok to be in process. But if all you have to offer is raw, unprocessed resentments, you are probably not ready yet to take advantage of what this forum has to offer. You can certainly come and read, you are welcome here . . . but threads which engage in this kind of bashing will be deleted. So just don't bother. Do please consider posting when you have gotten a little more help and support and are prepared to join with others in seeking to make positive change.

Responses to some of the following questions will almost always be helpful to others. . . I encourage all of us to keep the focus on recovery:

What has been most helpful in your recovery process?
What has been least helpful?
How has your view of God changed?
How have your relationships changed? With family? With people still in the spritually abusive group?
What do you think would help you to reconnect with God?
What can you do to break the abusive cycle? Are there ways you have passed on the dynamics of abuse? To children? To others? And what might help you to avoid that?

There's lots of stuff like this to talk about. Please focus on the recovery process. How can we respond in constructive ways to the spiritual damage we have experienced?
