Avoidance and excuses by way of lies can be only way to decide 'I shouldn't be here'...Some people in my area have gotten some pretty extreme mental problems here even aggressive manipulator/psychopathic/pathological liar types acting like the nice guy from next door and do a 180 as the churches are advocating a lot of hate against some groups, especially 'thieves' who needed disability pay after mental care following PTSD and 10+ years of psychosis.
I've come across another group of abusers and followers several times as this city bites in so many places, can be called to serve a lot of masters if you want to follow orders from the voices. The business networking is screwing out people and putting in their own and social event clubs/causes attacking new members to do dirty business favors or mistress motivators....I guess I'm in a bad area. I could usually get away from these situations as I'm just average looking lady and overweight...I act like I don't understand the threats or watching someone else being mistreated. I wait a little while before making excuses of why I cannot come back to the group like working on that day ... Avoid anyone you met from the group. Best to memorize where these worked so you can avoid the business for shopping or applying there for work, especially if you ran into someone bragging about harming people or doing illegal stuff, OR talks about Jesus strangely.
Rest is handled by 'I see', 'you don't say' and 'I didn't know'...NEVER STATE AN OPINION OR INTERACT ON THE SUBJECT. Try to act like you are busy while the ranter or wind bag is talking it up and try to excuse yourself. May need to leave situations by slipping out the back door after stating you are going to use bathroom.
