Welcome to the board.
Evidently, you are an Apostate.
hey, ur story bit like my own and evidently many others...
Either we are just raving apostates that are gonna be well an truely destroyed at armageddon, or we are just trying to break free and make some sense of the crap we have been fed for years... either way, heres to being happy??!!
Hey evidently, I'm recent here to. I seem to have issues in common, I can't yet but hope to some day feel the relief of telling my story. People are beginning to note my attitude and so I am having to be cautious.
Welcome, I have found genuine people here - it's a starting place.
thanks all, thelast year has been all too surreal i feel like neo after he took the pill i end up analizing everyone funny how i used to do that to "wordly" people, now i end up looking at all jw's and know i cant let on anything even family.
Welcome! I have a JW wife as well so I can relate. Not to mention my JW parents, JW sibling, and many JW in-laws. Hooray for cults!
Welcome, Evidently Apostate!!!
"i had just found out i was being screwed on a real estate development project by another self righteous jw i have known for a long time but this was a big loss (about 4 months pay plus expenses). i have lost more money employing and working with my brothers than non jws ..."
Funny that you should mention that...
When I was still "in" - [and I got "out" 24-odd years ago] - my Jehovah's Witness ex-husband was ripped off many times by his "brothers"... I got the impression that the average JW male seemed to have an inferiority complex (no college...) and desperately wanted to become independently rich - by any means necessary...
They all thought that, WHEN they became "independently wealthy", they'd make up for it by "pioneering"...
Anyway, WELCOME to the board!!
Zid - the she-devil...
