BOYZONE- It really is a wonder any of us are sane and living life more fully now ! But living guilt free - it's the best way to live ! Without guilt and fear imposed on us by the leaders of the WT society. I'm glad you are doing well my friend- I'm happy for you and you are so welcome !
MIDGET SASQUATCH- You are welcome also ! I have really enjoyed everyone's comments on this thread also ! Lots of good points made.
GAYLE- I'm so glad that you have raised your children with unconditional love and made them feel good about themselves ! Good job Mom ! Like yourself I was raised in the witness cult - and could never please my elder dad. I finally stopped in my late 30's realizing I had to find my self worth from within - nobody was gonna give it to me. And what I discovered is my self worth had been there all along ! I just had to discover it and tap into it to be a success in my own way.
JAM- I feel the borg preyed on the nicer witnesses and treated them as " weak spiritually " - when truth be known the arrogant ones were the weak ones- they just didn't realize it. I'm a true believer that underneath every bully is an insecure jerk who offsets their own deficient behavior by beating up on others emotionally and physically at times. The world would be a better place without psychological bullies
