My mom was the last family member I had in an mlm. Now her and my dad are out completely. They are enjoying a type of lifestyle now that they never could while they were in amway. Technically my need here is “done” as I no longer have family involved. Understand though that by my way of looking at things I still feel the need to stay connected and hopefully help someone else, even if it just providing comic relief by saying something dumb :).
I believe I owe the people of this forum a debt by helping me when no one else understood my pain and frustration. I intend to do that for a long time to come. It doesn’t dominate my life, but it is important as this forum has helped me heal and enjoy my life better, and has also helped me heal a rift in my relationship with my mother, father and the rest of my family. My parents just spent two weeks here and didn’t mention the “Business” once. We all had a great time for the first time in thirteen years. I am only 35. Almost one third of my life and pretty much all my adult life has been impacted by mlm. As long as this forum is here to help people in need, I will continue to support it in any way I can.
I hope this helps you put some of this in perspective. Sorry about the length of this post.
