I've said this somewhere before but not here.
It is difficult to say which of these responses hurts more:
a.) TBMs who take my 'apostasy' personally and consider me to be the devils plaything.
b.) Ex-Mormons who left when they were young because Mormonism wasn't their thing and who now smirk at my rantings considering me to be some kind of half-wit for getting so distressed over it all.
c.) Never-Mo's who don't know much about Mormonism and thus also wonder why I am making such a fuss.
So I guess it is no surprise that I take great comfort in:
a.) TBMs who genuinely care about my distress even though at times they feel confronted by me.
b.) Ex-Mormons who are also fighting back against the Mormon culture that urges 'apostates' to "Leave the Church Alone".
c.) Never-Mo's who can really SEE me and my pain and accept my strange cries as necessary outbursts in the process of healing.
Big LOVE to ALL of the people who have supported me as I have whined like a baby, stomped my feet like some creature possessed and cried many tears.
