I don't know you but I just want to hug you. i so relate.

Even coming to this board has made me look at some things again and ask more questions. Like I'm starting to think about why they didn't try to hard to come after me. I thought it was they were being respectful, and also were not even sure how to do it. so they didn't try. But I'm wondering now if there were some, maybe leaders, who thought I'd be trouble and it'd be better for me to go.

Having mixed feelings about that.

My experiences on the surface did not seem as bad as some of the ones I've seen described here, so I've come away with mostly the sense that there were best intentions, if also great levels of arrogance the higher up you go. But now I'm wondering.

I suppose there's never really one way to look at it. It could be all and everything at once, huh?
