    Hi Switch,

    Welcome to the board. I'm newly out too, so I am going through a range of feelings too. My family thinks I am going insane. I know I've just woken up to the lies I've been told and its hard.

    My family thinks I am going insane.

    It's temporary....I think.

    Welcome!

    Has anyone ever told you that you look a lot like "Hello Kitty"? But you're much prettier!

    It's good to know everyone goes thru the same feelings. Things look so blatantly wrong now that I can't believe I didn't notice it before, but then again - I wasn't really paying attention like I should of been. I think Witnesses just get lazy and rely on the WTS to get things right. You see 607/1914 repeated so often that you accept it as established fact! Why did I try to memorize the flipping supporting scriptures and math to get to 1914???? Now it seems so ridiculous to me. I've been avidly reading all sorts of material (Bibles, WT mags and books (new and old), exwitness books, cult books, etc.) I wind up with more questions and issues than answers. And so much anger that it makes me weary. It's also difficult to walk away from friends that have become your family over years and years. I still love them and don't want them to find out I have apostate thoughts.

    Welcome to JWD Switch! A great place to blur your mind. You said:

    Everything feels so foreign - like the concept of making new friends outside the congregation.

    Ooomps,

    It'll be easier for the Mr&Mrs Link since both of them want to meet new friends outside the org, unlike me and you whose wives will hear none of that.
