    Both of my grandmother's converted.... My parents talked and decided to have me live with my grandmother.

    So, both of your grandmothers apostatized from the religions of their birth. Your family shouldn't be surprised that you left the JWs, you are following in their footsteps.

    And WELCOME!

    The song titles escape me, but foo fighters 'what if I say I'm not like the others, what if I say I'm not just another one of your plays, you're the pretender, what if I say I will never surrender!!!'

    Muse 'they will not control us! we will be victorious!' (Every single word of that song)

    And more wistfully, john Lennon (wheels) 'no longer riding on the merry go round, I just had to let it go'

    Also I just heard a new foo fighters song, quite angry, called 'Congregation'...I couldn't understand all the words, but I've got to look them up. Was Grohl raised a witness??? Lol

    I am actually dating a non-witness boy as of now. He is a great guy and I couldn't imagine marrying a witness man... what a sexist environment!! I'm glad to hear you're happy. :D I know I am!

    @Billy the Ex-Bethelite

    Haha thanks for the warm welcome. :D

    Shinedown Second Chance

    "Tell my mother, tell my father I've done the best I can. To make them realise this is my life I hope they understand. I'm not angry I'm just saying.. sometimes goodbye is a second chance"

  • FayeDunaway

    Mmm, yes. We tried so hard to be good girls and good boys.

    Had to finally grow up and live our own lives.

    That goodbye part... :(

    ive pinned down what I hate most about the religion.

    it tears families apart.

  • Sparlocks_Apprentice


    I totally agree. My friend Morgan, her mom is Christian and she keeps shoving religion down her throat ever since she came out to her mom and told her she was Bi. Her mom was like "Why are you trying to tear us apart?!"

  • FayeDunaway

    Wow :( as if someone could help who they fall in love with.

    At 21 years of age, the next best decision you can make for your life in the future, if you haven't done so already, is get an education. You mention more than once about being "poor" in your childhood. Time to break outta that for you and your kiddos.


  • Sparlocks_Apprentice


    I know right?? :/ People these days...

    @Gone and forgotten

    Thank you :D I appreciate the kind welcome from all of you lovely people!


    Already way ahead of you. I'm looking into being a paraeducator and going into art school as well. :)
