I was wondering how common it is for ex-jws to relocate after leaving the borg in order to escape the bad memories of being in a cult, or to break contact with cult members.
I have wanted to move far away for as long as I can remember--even as a kid--for this purpose. Various life circumstances have delayed that--long story--but Mr. Rebel8 and I are thinking of moving within the next few years. I am the one who's most interested in moving to a completely different type of place--different culture, different climate, different everything! I now live on a different end of town than I did when I was a practicing jw, but it isn't far enough away for me. I hate going to the store and passing by places I used to go
in field service try to recruit new cult members.
Despite the fact that most of my ex-cult healing is done, I just don't like the sour memories popping up. I do not want to live the rest of my life in
WT NY State.
(Off topic: I propose a resolution to the forum that we cease capitalizing "jw" because it gives undue respect to an organization that doesn't deserve it. Anyone ready to second the motion?)
