When I first started talking with JWs, I remember a brother saying if you took a heart transplant that you would take on that person's personality. That statement sent up major red flags. Then I convinced myself that it was just one ignorant individual. Little did I realize that it was an entire ignorant and controlling organization. I wish I would have listened to some of the many red flags in the beginning. I feel as if I just fell off a truck and woke up this past year. I really believe that brainwashing is alive and well in the JWs.
