    Welcome. I can identify with a lot of what you wrote. I'm not quite where you are at, yet, still working things out too. But, again, welcome.

    Thanks everyone,

    Onthewayout, for a long time I felt this was a 'sign' but in reality witnesses are one of the only religions who call door to door, it's bound to happen.

    Walking away is hard but often necessary. I can identify with what you said about the meetings being difficult to sit through once you know the truth about the org the meetings are very hard work.

    Today we scived the meeting and spent the time in a Garden open to the public and it is true that you are closer to God in a garden than anywhere else on Earth.

    Welcome aboard.

    Dear Miss C

    WELCOME!!! Thank you for sharing your story. ((HUGS)) You will not be lonely here! You will find much comfort and friendship with these friends. Though you may not always agree on everything, most of us have one thing in common..and that is we have gotten our brains back from a very dangerous cult. This forum will no doubt prove to be a lifeline to you, as it has for most here. I promise things will get better, and easier, as you continue to enjoy your freedom and worship based on your conscience not someone elses. Hang in there....and again...WELCOME!!

    Welcome Miss C!

    Great post :)

    I am now free to explore the Bible without the constraints of manmade doctrines, free to express my Christianity how I wish, it is more real, more satisfying than ever before.
