Hello folks, this is the first topic I've started, so bear with me please.
I had searched the internet to try and find my way, made a stop here a couple of years ago but just now decided to join. Anyhoo, in all my searching I've realized that many ex-jws aren't dealing well. That raises a question for me, because after finally reading the gospels I realized Jesus would never treat people the way the GB does EVEN in the interest of keeping a congregation clean (Which is a JOKE, btw).
The anger seems to come out of nowhere. Ive been out for 20 years, but spent my first 18 in the organization. When you leave it, it leaves a big hole somehow. Not that we needed it, we were just taught we did. I wonder about the ones who were kids when I was a kid----how are they doing?? I know of several who stayed in (my potential marriage mate *gag* is one. He was a nice guy--just not the kinda life I want). Anyway, I'll think I've put in all behind me but NOOOOOOO--here it comes to knock me down again. I'm tired of it!! Is there anyway to "unwash" your brain??
This place seems cool, lots of diversity. I may have "met" some of you before under a different name. Y'all be cool, and let's all take care of each other. No one else could ever understand unless you've been there.
