One of the most common questions those who have experienced harm in a faith community ask is, “What do I do if I want to tell my story, but I can’t right now?” Maybe you signed an NDA. Maybe you have a legitimate fear associated with talking. If part of healing involves talking, what if I can’t talk?
Amy Fritz invites Lydia Craig and Melissa Hogan to join her to talk about how they navigated this for themselves and offer suggestions and hope for others.
*How Amy, Lydia, and Melissa connected.
*When an unhealthy “gossip policy” gets in the way of having important conversations.
*How we figured out what was safe to share and who was safe to share with.
*Being conditioned to not speak.
*Reasons we didn’t/couldn’t speak for a time.
*Other ways to process painful experiences like this without speaking directly and publicly.
*Prioritizing your well-being.
*Going to those who have exited prior to our own exits and asking to hear their story.
*Documenting your experience.
*The advantage we had with being associated with a public figure.
*What we would do differently.
