So you were able to fulfill those needs outside the org?
In short, yes.
When I joined the Org. I was searching for truth, (spiritual truth) and the Org. fulfilled that need to a point.
I wasn't raised in the Org. so when I met JW's at my door they seemed like good people (and the majority are, they just have their eyes closed)
Anyway, as time went on, like most of us here I started learning the truth about the WT, I started having doutbs so I did research and eventually left the Org.
I've since come to realize Truth, Happiness, Love, and all the things that make you happy start first on the inside of each of us.
I learned that if you don't take care of your own house first, it's a lot more difficult to help others with their's
I realized happiness and Truth doesn't come from a book, church, KH, or anywhere, but from inside, each, and everyone of us
Hope that answered your question?
