How many family members or close friends did you lose to the Watchtower?

    I have just a sister and her family in the JWs but they don't shun me, as for friends I miss none because the dubs in that kh were too closed to make friends with.

    I never thought about putting quite like that.

    But I have both parents, a sister, and two brothers. So everyone in my immediate family.

    I didn't have many JW friends, and we weren't allowed around the 'worldly' family very often, so I didn't know them very well. I'm the only one that left.


    edited to add....I forgot, about the nieces and nephews that I've never even got to meet.

    I got to a couple of dozen and let it go. I have realised that the good stuff they brought into my life was outweighed by the bad stuff. Now that I've seen how they treat people, what they're really like, I don't want them back. You know who your real friends are when you're true to yourself!

    I lost everyone but my children, and that relationship was dicey for a while.
