Over time I forgot my biological father and put my money (and soul) on the only male figure in my life that gave me guidance: L. Ron Hubbard. Wait, he was the only one I was allowed to follow for face the consequences.
My mother handed over the responsibility of being my parent to this man.
He influenced every decision I ever made. Even today I have a hard time processing situations. It takes me a while to mentally prepare before responding. I still worry about replying to adhere to a policy or make sure my response isn't going to upset people.
I share how this evolution occurred including personal details and specifics.
