Missing the friends left behind
Often times on this discussion board individuals claim that they do not
miss any of their friends that they left behind in the organization. It is
understandable in a way, why they feel the way they do. Chances are
good that the Watchtower Society had some kind of hand in that.
That small percentage
Quite honestly, there is that small percentage of witness friends who
you remember and recall from time to time that you do miss. Individuals
on this discussion board may fight me on this one, but it would only seem
logical that after 5, 10, 15 years or more with them, and in particular, if you
got along well with that person, you would miss them.
Feelings for others
A corporation cannot sever the emotional ties and goodwill that I had toward
that small percentage of friends that I had in the organization. Sadly, the
brainwashing that they receive with regularity places a barrier between us.
The only regrets are that the lines of communication have been broken by a
commercial enterprize masquerading as a religious organization. Overall, I can
honestly say that--that small group of about 5 Jehovah's Witnesses that I left
behind, I will love until the end of time.
