Rate yourself as far as healing from the abuse of the organization. Time is a great healer, so I believe those who can state many years out, will also state a high rate of healing has occured for them.
- How many years have you been out of the organization?
- On a scale of 1-10, ten being completely free of the pain, one being raw and still hurting with intensity, How much healing have you accomplished since leaving?
- Related to number 2 - how much of your mind have you recaptured? How often do your decisions still bring Watchtower theology into play when making them?
I don't have a 'formula', but I have an opinion of how this will go. Be honest. Healing starts with honesty, IMO
