I want to take this opportunity to say goodbye to all of the members on JWN and thank you for your support over the years.
Circumstances have arisen that make it impossible for me to continue posting here.
I have truly appreciated your love and support during some hard times when I had no one else to talk to.
You showed compassion and a non-judgmental, Christlike attitude for thoughts and feelings that could not be openly expressed to any of the Brothers in the congregation for fear of reprisal. For that, I am so grateful!
Thanks to the many of you that could relate to the pain and worthlessness that I have felt about myself for so many years because of my experiences and upbringing in the Truth. To you I say thank you and please stay strong yourselves.
You helped me through depression, sadness, loneliness and and have given me a lot of strength with your own experiences and advice. You have helped pull me through some pretty dark times.
To the members who understood my drinking problem, the causes of it, gave me a kick in the ass for screwing up, and pulled me through some rough times. I thank you especially.
I really have nowhere to go now to vent my frustrations about the Truth but I guess I'll figure something out.
Again, thanks to all for your unconditional love and support during the years for the things you can not openly discuss with JW friends or family.
With that I bid you Adieu.
As Ecclesiastes 9:11 says, "time and unforeseen occurrence befall them all."
