Comparing notes with people from other cong/countries allows us to let go of one more chain that was imposed on us. If we don't talk about these things they won't ever get resolved so we can "move on with your lives."
My wife has a cousin who never fails to bring up how his parents never let him have a dog growing up. He does this in front of them at our house during family holiday dinners. He plays with our Silky Terrier and lets everyone know how selfish his parents were ( dogs are too much trouble, son) and how deprived he was. I've heard this lament from this 40+ year old man 5 or six times. I wonder how many Witness children were deprived of pets growing up and still have issues today. It does look like this thread has struck a nerve - Witnesses so want to feel normal, but can't. The rest of us know we were cheated and are trying to right the wrong!
Uncle bruce, quite a family!
