Second: This blog is now two years old.
I wish I had to post more, but I just don’t. My children are older, my time is more valuable spent doing other things, also I travel a lot more for work, which just eats up your time in so many inexplicable ways. This blog is cathartic, but in the end hopefully by book will get it’s act together and everyone can read that.
Ninth: The original thread on Bullshido was started by me in 2005
This was the most important thing I have done to help people survive COL. It opened up a forum for the first time. It took a couple of years to really get going, but I knew it was important the day I posted that thread. I think it has helped many, me included move on and continue the healing process of living in Tae Yun Kim’s dangerous cult.
Tenth: The original post I made on e-budo was ten years ago this summer.
This was mostly unsuccessful; As well I received loose threats which were relayed by my mother from people still on the inside, that they’d come after me… Luckily I found friends later in the free-for-all that is Bullshido.
Eleventh: Eleven years since my mother successfully left COL.
March 27, 2003 was her second attempt… Her first was in late 2002. She was out once and for all once she left this time.
Fifteenth: My anniversary of officially leaving COL passed in February.
It may have been fifteen years, but this is still one of the most memorable experiences, for better or worse, of my life time. A cult will affect you forever and make you who you are. We can’t avoid who we become due to experiences, but we can do our best moving on and forward with our lives.
