Cross the line..or annihilate it?

After a good, long run, we have decided to close our forums in an effort to refocus attention to other sections of the site. Fortunately for you all, we're living in a time where discussion of a favorite topic now has a lot of homes. So we encourage you all to bring your ravenous love for discussion to Chuck's official Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram. And, as always, you can still post comments on all News updates. Thank you for your loyalty and passion over the years. These changes will happen June 1.

I'm working a piece right now, that is based on a real person but the story is fictional. The person is me and the story is what could have been my life (had certain things not come into play). I grew up in somewhat of a religious cult (for the moment, I'll keep what group it is hush) and they are extremely private. If I were to get this story into circulation it could cause a uproar, with my family and with the religious groups. I'm going to write it regardless but I'm having issues with the matter of respect. How much is too much? I tend to go way over the line with most of my writing and I'm not out to hurt people. I'm wondering that since I'm doing it anyway should I go balls out and be 100% honest? I think so, I guess I'm just worried about how it will be received. I don't want to end up on Oprah or something.
