Default Re: Open Letter - Dear Saints in the Lord's Recovery

This FB post was touching:
For those of who’ve know me over the past decade, it will probably come to a shock to you that someone as outspoken as me has hidden one of the biggest parts of my life. I was raised in this group. Everything that this brave woman has written, was something that I too discovered, experienced and was bothered by. Her story is my story.

However I have never been able to write about it. And only have only been able to talk about it in a joking way after a few drinks.
This won’t concern most of you. But those of you who know me from before I left, I beg you to read this in its entirety. If you want to understand me, this is how you do it.
I am not backslidden.
I was not poisoned.
I was not too lazy to pay the price.
I did not, not see the vision of the recovery.
I was just not willing to settle.
And although many of these phobias common to people raised in groups like these, still follow me around. I am free and have been for ten years this summer.
Posting this is the bravest thing I’ve ever done.

She posted Jo's letter on her FB page and asked all to read it thru.
Ohio's motto is: With God all things are possible!.
Keeping all my posts short, quick, living, and to the point!
