First off, I'm almost definite somebody else has already posted, asked this question, but I'm too lazy to look right now lol...
About half a year of contemplation, evaluation, and calculation has led up to making this decision, so here it is.
Because of a multitude of circumstances, I don't believe fading will be an option as I originally thought, and I frankly refuse to waste any more years of my life trying to pretend to believe something I clearly do not, and preserve a connection to people who don't even have the decency to speak to me or befriend me as a fellow human being. I am alienated as it is- I guess I'm just a weird and shy person, and that will not change anytime soon.
I plan to - in the coming months when the time is right - present a letter of disassociation from the congregation, and the watchtower society.
How does one go about writing this letter, and if you have written one, could you either pm me or post here what you wrote?
Also, what should I expect to happen after the letter is received (e.g. elder visits, a reply with a plea, etc) and what can I do/write/say to avoid situations like these?
I just want to sever my ties with the least drama possible.
Optimally, I would hope to just send the letter, and that be the end of it.
But I don't know what happens, so if you've been there, done that, please enlighten me.
