Interesting. I hope other will keep this topic going for awhile so we understand how to get more to post here and start the healing.
Umm they seem to find us pretty fast. I don't think we need to go looking for them. But I agree - Let the healing begin. force Welcome to the group. We really do need someone to talk to when there is no one at home that is safe Mysterious
Any of my worldly associates I had to give too much backstory to for them to understand. I just needed somewhere that others could understand what I was saying.
I see this everywhere. So many people say it is so difficult to expalin this to people who have never gone through this. limbogirl
this forum is that it allows my boyfriend to get some perspective on what I went through with JWs
I'm sure my now you have found our resident expert on UBMs (unbelieving mates) jgnat. Even though you are out I'm sure she .can offer your boyfriend a lot of her wisdom. 2stepper Welcome to the board.
I guess it has taken so long to join in is because I was so screwed up I didn't feel that I had anything worth while to comment on. It's just been within the last year that I've really come to terms with everything and finally rid myself of most of my witness programing.
Yes people have to be ready and come to terms with all the WTS stuff on their own terms. It took me 10 years after I was out to start dealing with it.
Also I was intimidated by the quality of some of the posters here. There are some really sharp people here and being slow of mind and even slower of typing I was comfortable just reading what others had to say.
aw Glad you didn't let us scare you off. We have no idea how fast or slow your typing is in here.
In answer to your question the main reason that I decided to join in was because I felt indebted to everyone here. This site has helped me more than words can describe and maybe in some small way I might be able to help someone else.
Well I for one am glad you are here. And I'm sure you like so many others will have plenty to discuss. Even though I have read similar things many times, someone comes along and says something in just a certain way and I "get it" - even after all these years.
