    Yesterday I celebrated my one year anniversary of leaving Jehovah's Witnesses. I have no regrets, except to coin a line always recited at assemblies about pioneering: I only wish I had left sooner.

    My life has been anything but dull. I have tuned into my job, gotten a girlfriend who loves me, and am well on the way towards winning half custody of my daughter and having enough legal control to keep her from the more drastic of fates that the WT has to offer, most specifically dying a premature death due to a flawed policy on blood. My only pain has been having lost many good friends. But when I consider the friends that I have gained, including those in the exJW meetup group I am involved with (http://exjw.meetup.com/333/) I feel like what Jesus is alleged to have said is true: One gains mothers and brothers and sisters. Which goes to show that many of the "truths" which JWs hold in such high esteem do not necessarily stand up to reality.

    So here is to never going back, and to helping many more to leave and enjoy their newfound freedom.

    Isaac

    I consider myself in this group of new friends you have gained. In addition, there is a little girl that wants to be your friend and the friend of your new found mate:

    She is adorable. I hope one day to have more kids too. And maybe she will get used to my girlfriend as well.

    Congratulations tsof!

    Just got done reading your letter to the GB.

    Well done.

    I can't help but wonder if your honest assessment of JW work overload was one of many voices that finally resulted in ditching the CBS?

    Nah. The GB would never listen to 'postates.
