Help for Those Leaving the Group

Here are responses from a survey of former Holic members, about what helped them in their situation after departing from the group. This includes both those who were excluded and those who left the group by their own decision. At the time they gave these responses, they were already experiencing an inner distancing from the group, and in hindsight they described what they found helpful in that phase. The answers are given word-for-word (only in some cases translated from other languages, or with altered names and places). Some texts are from foreigners writing in German, and therefore aren’t as smooth as that of a native German speaker. Naturally, they all reflect the distinctive and individual view of the person.
