I remember hearing all the details of Bethel life while I was growing up and my family tried to get me to plan on a Bethel "career".
The meat time rituals, the "having" to be at the breakfast table on time, the required Monday night WT study, having to work a full shift then having to travel through the city to attend your assigned congregation, sharing a room with someone...I hated all of it. I wanted no part of it. It was tough coming up with excuses to elders and others who kept bugging me why I didn't apply for Bethel.
Reading the experiences of Bethel life, I'm so glad that I saw at least through that part of the cult life and avoided it. I would have been absolutely miserable. But then again, maybe if I had gone it would have pushed me into doubting things quicker and finding my way out completely much quicker. Who knows?
