I now know why most shun me or keep their distances.Hypocrites.Where you considered 'bad association' too?
I answered at all the meetings, went out in FS every saturday, didn't drink or go to R rated movies, but....I was married to a JW that abandoned me and disappeared out of state- I divorced for financial reasons... then I noticed being marked. No one invited me to get togethers and most avoided me at the meetings, so I guess I was bad association.
When I did start hanging around "worldly" people, then the same things happened.. but people just counseled me to my face that I was bad association & going down a dangerous road. By then I was too far gone & didn't give a shit
