Ever notice how many people who had lengthy associations with the WTB&TS are so vehemently against the practice of positive thinking and positive self image? I have, and I see it most strongly in people who were raised as Dubs, who had their self-image crushed to dust before they entered puberty.
Well, here's a newsflash - the WTB&TS is an organization filled with losers; an organization that permits "success" to a privileged few.
If you have suffered long under the WT doctrine, do yourself a favor and TRY SOMETHING NEW.
It can't hurt. We're not talking about swallowing tapeworms or smoking exotic herbs. (Too many of you would jump at a chance for that!) We're talking ideas - concepts - world views. We're not talking about joining a Jonestown cult or a Ramtha cult or a Raelian cult. Don't join a cult! Just try thinking in a way you're not used to thinking - positively.
Or . . . you can keep "waiting on Jehovah."
How's THAT been working for you so far?
