This is the 1st public statement I made to Family on 10/22/17, exactly 1yr after I started remembering the abuse & 7 months after leaving w/out notice. It was my Grandma Mary's birthday. I said aloud to her "You can RIP now, Grandma. I got this." Then I started to #SayBraveThings
I was amazed that literally NO ONE responded. The silence was deafening (sound familiar?) In hindsight I realize they were stunned & unsure of what I remembered. At the time, I knew the only way to make myself safe & get them to back off was to #SayBraveThings & name them.
Over the next 6 weeks, I endured a slew of slanderous, vitriolic attacks from so-called "friends" who cycled through every psychopathic manipulation tactic in the book. Unfortunately for the them, the truth is the truth, & this behavior only revealed their own deceitful nature.
They had no idea how much I knew/remembered (Journal entry from 5/21/17 about 2 mos after I left & 7 mos after I started recovering memories). I thank & praise God for the amount of info I was able to recover while in isolation last yr. A bit of psych background helped a lot too.
When it finally sank in that there wasn't a single person in my old life that wasn't somehow involved in my abuse, even if only by pretending to be my friend & keeping tabs on me for my parents, I realized that I never actually knew any of these people & I was orphaned by Truth.
About a week after I first started to #SayBraveThings on 10/22/17 something strange started happening on 4chan: #QAnon. As #TheGreatAwakening grew & developed, so did I. As all of you began learning the real truth of this world, so did I. We're all in this together now. #WWG1WGA
One of the most important realizations I came to while struggling to understand how to incorporate this new reality into my worldview was that it's 100% up to the GOOD people of the world to end this. Those caught in the trap are clearly unable/unwilling.
I've now shared with all of you the statements to family referenced here. Situational awareness is extremely important in this situation. Compassion is difficult but necessary if we genuinely want to find a way out & heal. Again, it's up to the good guys.
