I know it's been ages, busy living I guess. But I thought I'ld drop in and say hello.
I sometimes read posts and ask misspeaches what's going on.
As I'm having the day off work today I decided to take the time to post a BIG 'HELLO ' to all my old friends on the forum, and also to the new members here.
Nothing much has changed for me and my family. We are all out and happy. I often bump into dubs who either panick because they don't know if i'm df'ed and whether they CAN talk to me.................or try to save me and then take off quickly because with what i tell them they may need to be saved from me! LOL
As frustrating as any conversation is with a dub, i have alot of fun, especially when the sister says that "you can't blame jehovah for sexual abuse" and i say "no, that's true but you would blame me if i didn't warn your daughter and put your grand daughter at risk".......the eyes pop out now because it's her family and suddenly the danger and feelings are real and personal. Then i remind the sister that i got df'ed for doing just that, warning her daughter of the danger of leaving her kids with pedo. The sister still has to defend the borg and says, "well that's the problem with so many new ones coming in to the borg, they bring their past bad behaviour with them, such as sexual abuse" I just assure her that the pedo that abused my kid is 3rd generation dub and he is still in the congregation.
I guess they will eventually df me but I really couldn't care less. Fact is the whole experience of being a JW and all the bad events and traumas have become a very distant memory to me.
For all new ones that have recently joined JWD..............time is a real friend. It will pass and life away from the WTS is wonderful.
All the best to you all and take care. I will drop in again. So in Marvin Gaye's famous words........"what's goin' on?"
