    You all know how it is to be different after having been a JW.

    So.. now, are you different than people around you? I am in the Bible belt so most everyone is a Christian here. I am a Baptist like most others here.

    Are you different now? If you are agnostic, are most others in your area agnostic too?

    I'm a Christian like most others in this area.

    Same here.

    They are really nice and never mention that I used to diss their beliefs while standing on their doorsteps.

    Freedom is great.

    I've gone the other way, so to speak, after leaving the jws, and am now an atheist.

    I guess I've had more than enough of any kind of religious belief for this lifetime.

    Thankfully, I'm now free of all that Bible constraint. I'd call myself an agnostic - but I'm leaning heavily to atheism. However, I'm spiritual nonetheless.

    Beliefs = very differant. The way I look = yes, kinda look'en like my avatar. I'm not like anybody around here, I'd stand out in a crowd, except I'm short... lol

    I think as far back as I can recall I always felt different -- even among JWs.

    Only a bit less painfully so as time goes by (play it again, Sam ).

    Hi Didier (((((((((((manly hugs))))))))))),

    I think as far back as I can recall I always felt different -- even among JWs.

    That hit a chord with me. From a very early age I was always a loner (and sometimes lonely), making my beloved mother once say:

    "You're a strange lad, Ian!" 'Strange' referring to my being a loner and not doing what "normal" kids did, as opposed to being a nutter!

    Love to you, my dear friend.
