Do You Regret Learning it Was a Lie?
I regret learning it was a lie in a limited sense being that sometimes the truth hurts. It hurts to find out that all your friends that you have accumulated over the years in the cult will instantly become your enemies and that all your hard work in going door to door was for a lie and that all the self sacrificing you have made to save people and put Jehovah first as they say was wasted energy on a pipe dream.
Other than that I have no regrets I would rather know the truth than be in darkness and slave for a worthless cause.
But realizing that some are very old and their supports system evolves their still believing in the Organization I'm reluctant to go out of my way to destroy their hopes and relationships in side the WT by spending any effort to deprogram them.
I will help someone who is only recently gotten involved with the WT and shy away from trying to convince those who have spent many years unless they are asking me and really want to know.
When I first left I went on a letter writing champagne and sent letters to as many as I could but now see such efforts as not a good idea my wish now is only that the WT stop its shunning practise and gradually lift its iron hand from off the friends but that will never happen any time soon I'm afraid.
