I remember from like the age 5 till 18, I use to just love going to othe Kindom halls to visit. I had friends all over the place!
Long story short, I moved to Fl. with my mom when I was 19, and we were df'd. A few years later, my sister moved there, and we all three agreed that we would all go back and get reinstated. (yes, all three of us were Df'd) Problem was, her and my mom lived an hour away! There was nothing worse, than walking into a hall, df'd, not knowing anyone, and cant talk to anyone!
For 6 months I went, of course never met anyone but the elders.....Sat alone feeling like a heel! After the six months, I was reinstated. The night that they annonced it, I about died. The WHOLE entire KH lined up from the stage, forming this nice little line leading to me! All introducing themselves and welcoming me! I never have seen that done.
All I kept saying is what a nice congregation! NOT! After that, they all went back into there own little clicks, and the only ones that talked to me, were the couple who started studing with me! WTF. As you can guess, I didnt last long there! A few months later, back into the fade I went lol!
