How is your circle of friends?

    as my life continues to evolve so do my circle of friends

    the grass is always greener on the other side so I tend
    to envy people like my partner Mitch who has had the same
    set of close friends his whole life.

    however, as my interests change i find myself drifting
    away from some friendships and forming others.

    for me, the positive in this is that i get to know a
    lot of people, but do not share years of experiences with
    them, other than Mitch.

    AK-Jeff, I am probably in the same shoes you were 4 years ago today. I am the newbie here that has just currently left the JW's. And, yes it is lonely. My wife, like yours, is still a committed JW with her parents. My children no longer want to be a JW either and are moving on with their lives. So far, none of us DF'd or DA'd but it is just a matter of time.

    I am currently trying to reconnect with family since I have lost all my freinds since being indoctrinated. They have all went "very" different ways that I will not follow. But, I will say, I have had some good encouraging support from others here at JWD as well as some personal PM's. I look forward to a day when I will be able to meet these JWDer's that have and are helping me thru this trying time.

    If I knew this what it was going to be like I would have slammed the door on the JW's 7 years ago.

    But, hindsight is 20/20.
