Beginning to not care... again

    Before I created an account here on JWD, I was in a place where I really didn't care about the JW religion any more. I didn't know or care to know about any of the "scandals". I'd heard about the UN/NGO issue and it raised my eyebrows. But I really didn't give it much thought.

    I began to read some threads here and decided to join. I was warmly welcomed and before long I was throwing some punches. I realized that I had not really addressed many of the issues being raised a JW and then being cast aside causes. I had merely pushed them into the background.

    I realize that now. With that realization, though, I began to just not care again.

    I just want my entire family out. I could not care less about any of the BS about the WBTS. The leaders are a bunch of loonies. The followers are trapped, loony themselves, are just idiots, or are in simply for egocentric reasons.

    As my rate of posts here dwindles, I know most of you here will begin to forget about me. This is fine. It is the way of things. I'm going to the Dallas 'fest this weekend, and I'm sure I'll get along with most. Maybe I'll meet some people I can be real friends with in "real life"... maybe not.

    I am simply beginning to no longer care about anything JW-related. I hope everyone here the best. I'm not going to say I'm leaving. I'm just going through a down-swing, I''m sure.

    daystar i personally will continue to lok out for your posts because i enjoy them, but respect and understand your "down-swing". We all go through them and if they are permanent maybe that is actually healthy for you and those who do.

    Best of luck to you hon.

    daystar -

    As with all things the pendulum will swing from side to side and impact us differently depending on the arc of the swing. That being said, we'll see you this weekend. Meet these people. They are good people and we all need more good people in our lives regardless of our position at the moment.

    btw, we have you down to bring potato salad. Don't forget.

    Send a pm to IP_SEC or myself if you wanna. We'll see you this weekend.

    Don't make get the dawgs out and hunt you down.

    Activism can't be sustained by each individual indefinitely and can't be taken up by some even momentarily. We newcomers will try to make the conditions within the org so unbearable, by exerting pressure on the outside of the tower, that your family pops out along with ours.

    Peace to you, and enjoy your day...everyday.

    I don't mean to say I'm leaving. Just my interest in the whole JW "thing" as a whole is dwindling. Hopefully, this is a step in the right direction and I can move on a bit further.

    You were one of the first ones here to greet me to the board. I would miss you too were I to leave.

    I stopped giving a damn a long time ago, sometimes I don't bother posting for a few weeks. But I think that growing up in "the truth" influenced me in certain ways which I have never shaken and possibly never will, so talking to people here and at apostfests I can find another level of understanding with people with a similar background (other weirdo's)
