To my knowledge I am not declared but I can see that it may not be long before I am.
Shortly after, I decided I had had enough, but no one really knew I knew I was done, I didn't want anyone to try to talk me into continuing with the Church. I started getting calls on my cell from what I would consider to me my best friend. He called me tons, always leaving me messages. However, I knew I was done and, at the time, thought it just might be best to let the comm just die.
I have since changed my number and no one from the Church has it. I moved and left no forwarding address so no one has that. I just disappeared. I thought that was the best way to do this. That was over a year ago. I found this board just last month to help me with my emotions on the subject as I just had no one around that could even come close to understanding any of this.
But anyway back to the question. Would you reach out and talk to this person before you end up getting declared and then he CAN'T talk to you or would you do what I have done and just let it die?
He is a 30 something year Scnist and his wife is a Class V who isn't on staff but audits staff regularly. He is an ex staff. and again, I have to say, if I had a best friend he would have been him. I don't think I can change his mind on this subject but I would let him know I am done and the reasons why.
