I read with interest the thread about how people who are mentally out yet still attend (some) meetings manage to do continue to do it and it got me wondering, how do those of us who are completely inactive, no longer practicing members of the faith, manage to pull off our new ex-JW life, yet never invite scrutiny or investigation from former friends, elders, etc.
Take me, for example. I've been out several years now, but have never officially renounced my faith. I've never out and out called it a crock of shit to anyone who could make real trouble for me. I consider myself an ex-JW, but cannot post that on my Facebook wall without repurcussions.
I've managed to move on in my everyday life for the most part...doing what I want to do and am even slowly successful in freeing some family members...at least physically, if not mentally. Yet, there are times that I have to tippy-toe around certain subjects/events/holidays.
For me, it's part not playing by WT rules and part keeping low profile so as to not cause JW family to have to take a hard stand. But as more time passes, I care less about being found out/exposed. If it were to happen, I'd just shrug my shoulders and keep on keeping on. But I'm not going to invite it. I want to continue to slowly work my evil plan at freeing certain members from the clutches of the WTS.
What about y'all? How do some of y'all do it?
