    "But where else will you go?" a friend said as I was leaving.

    You should have said to " The Truth "

    Thanks for joining humanity .....all the best

    Well, if you were in a burning house, would you need to know where you were going before you left? The most important thing is getting out, wouldn't you agree????!!!!!!!!!!!

    (JW's love their burning house illustration . . .)

    HOT CHOCOLATE- Very true what you say ! Freedom is great ! Freedom from cult mind control and the ability and freedom we have to make our own informed decisions. I was born-in the witnesses and in for 44 years. Been out 6 years now - and it's been the happiest years of my life !

    Only one thing I differ with in your initial post - we NEVER really had the " truth ". It was the " false " all along. No problem. Just a small technicality ! LOL! I'm glad you are happy as well

    Love you too Besty. :-)

    Ready for a rebound for sure. Bring it on!

    Thanks Flipper. And to others too - personally when I write "the truth", it's because I'm hoping to speak the language of those who might be reading this from the place I was not so long ago. Every time I write here I'm aware of trying to stay respectful and use terms that insiders will relate to... "All things to all people", it's ingrained, what can I say? :-)

    Sweet Pea, here's to getting out!

    How good is it to be out? -- compared to life as a dub, it's good beyond the telling of it.

    Its one of the best things EVER!!! When you've come through it you realize how strong you really are...Very happy for you.

    To your freedom
