I am looking for stories of people who are able to successfully maintain family relationships with those still in. For me, a pretty fundamental part of this is flying low and not getting declared, because it's pretty hard to stay in touch with someone who has disconnected from you. Yet, the more I read and listen, the more I want to be able to speak out and share my own story. My story isn't drastic, and that's why I feel like it's important, because it shows how the 2nd gen (and 3rd and so on) has an even harder time of it. I have been listening to the "Growing up in Scientology" YouTube series, as these stories are very relatable and have been getting some major TA! I am trying to reconcile the changes in viewpoint and belief I am going through with the knowledge that my beliefs must be kept absolutely secret if I hope to keep my family. I hate this, as I feel like it is preventing me from being honest and May slowly destroy my family relationships anyhow as I'll be living a lie.
