afraid of mormons

Yes, I have no "forgiveness" for the Mormon cult, either. It (and pressure from my TBM family) influenced decisions that altered my life. I turned down a marriage proposal from the lovely Atheist boy, whom I had known and loved my whole life, because he was not Mormon. I was coerced into going to BYU, instead of the university of my choice (I had a full scholarship to both). I rejected another great marriage proposal, because he didn't go on a mission, and left the cult. I married a RM in the temple, who beat me and caused permanent physical damage and PTSD. I chose a "female-type" career, instead of pursuing my real interests and natural talents. (I later corrected that mistake.) I trusted my life to a TBM second husband, who left me for another woman, and took my assets. I trusted my bishop brother, who scammed me out of my life savings, and my business. This was all before I turned 35, so, luckily I had time to recover physically and financially, and resign from the cult, and turn my life around. I may never recover emotionally.
Do business with Mormons? Never again!
Trust that a member of a lying, money-grabbing cult will not be a lying, money-grabber? Experience has taught me something!
All the time I was back in school getting a DECENT education, getting on my feet in my career, raising some great kids by myself, loving those kids beyond all else, staying positive, and discovering the Truth--I was made to feel like a second-class citizen, never good enough, a loser because I was unmarried, a failure because I had to work outside the home, and easy prey for cult members. Mormonism was making our life miserable!
My life (and my children's life) is so much happier out of the cult, that, by contrast, I realize I could have been enjoying our successes, building up my confidence and self-esteem, spreading joy to others, doing REAL charity work, donating to GOOD CAUSES, instead of wasting away in a sick, dead-end cult.
Yes, Mormonism was a "mess"!
