By no means I am trying to get revenge that’s why I wanted to exit this church once I got engaged but I shouldn’t have to rely on someone else to make decisions. I have had many opportunities to get my revenge if I really wanted to but I’m simply looking for my sanctuary where I don’t carry shame. I have forgiven the pastor’s son but I don’t want to reconcile with him or try to co exist in a place where I have felt at my lowest. Of course his parents will love him no matter what they know about him and for that same reason I never wanted to speak my truth because it’s not their fault. I just feel like I’m in a situation where if I don’t explain why I can’t feel free or safe enough to heal in this place my pastors will try to make it work. Like I’m mentioned I’m very involved and have been attending for 9 years…
