When i first woke up from the cult like slumber, the emotion of anger needed out. At that time I did not know where to place those feelings. Who deserved them? That’s when activism happened. I needed the ones who abused me to hear my voice and see my damaged soul. I am real! I am tangible! I am out to make change! The release that I felt after my first dose of activism resulted in me knowing exactly how to channel my feelings. The possibility of maybe, just maybe an individual listens and researches and in turn frees themselves from cult slavery…that feeling is indescribable. It helps me heal.
The VAA helped wake me up. They confirmed that the doubts I was feeling were validated and gave me a safe place to begin exploring those doubts. Thanks to the VAA I now have an exit strategy.
As a survivor of sexual abuse it has taken over 20 years for me to feel comfortable telling my story.During my process of going public I was struggling and felt overwhelmed, and alone. I started searching for groups and came across the VAA. The people of Vast Apostate Army are filled with unbridled spirit and unmatched solidarity. They are there for each other when it counts, and when it is time to speak they come in droves to show support for one another.
I had been seeing a local therapist for over a year and then I decided to try one of the exjw counselors through VAA. I felt more understood in one session with her then I did after a year with my previous therapist.
