Cult Expert Steve Hassan gives advise about a subject many former "Message" cult members are familiar with: the struggle to avoid confrontation during the holidays when cult members are less than agreeable during the festivities.
Especially for those with family members still involved with the group, holidays can provoke a lot of anxiety and even phobic reactions. It can be really hard to deal with comments that are meant to recruit you back or impose the groupâ€™s moral system upon you. Of course, devout members often still believe they need to â€œsave you.â€ The good news is that you can learn to handle these comments strategically if you have done healing work and understand cult mind control issues.
