Congratulations on your newly found status and welcome to the site. I'm sorry to hear about the shunning, as we all hate to hear about this. I was fortunate none of my children stayed in and share my view of the WBTS. You will find many, many new friends that will accept you unconditionally.
Welcome Marion, youve come to the right place :) !
Glad you could join the rest of us....in the real world.
Marion, I've noticed that when I do something wrong or say something wrong that's when I learn the best. I mean if you don't know it's wrong you will keep doing it. So, lay it out there and see what happens. Don't wear your heart on your sleeve.
Warm welcomes Marion.
Good to have ya here.
I'm a Newbie too
To be honest, I haven't got used to being an apostate yet, but coming here will certainly speed up the process!
Don't worry about witness speak its been "inculcated" in all your 'loving brothers and sisters" here
If you say what you feel I bet you find people understand.
Welcome Marion. You sound so good for only being D/A two days! My goodness! The value of having stabilizing companions and friends ready to help cannot be understated.
Hope you enjoy JWD.
Have you told us why you D/A'd?
Thankyou again everyone for your warm welcome.
Anewme: I am writing my story, and have just put the first part on the board. It is a long one, but very therapeutic to write.
I will add to it as and when I can, but I am posting at the moment from a friend's house (fullofdoubtnow) and have to go home shortly.
Thank you again
