    I haven't posted in a while, it's just that i've been so busy with my new life!! I'm so glad i left the org, and so is my brother. I feel so much happier, i'm at peace, i don't have that feeling like something's missing anymore. And I've made new friends who are great people. I have a new job that i'm loving. And I celebrated the new year for the first time :P That was a lot of fun ^^. My birthday is coming up and I'm curious about that date from my new perspective.

    I know it feels this way because everything is new to me, but deep inside I know that even if things become less intense in time, there's no way I'll ever want to go back to the pain and repression i felt as a witness.

    My parents and witness brothers are respecting our decission and won't tell on us. So our fade is working great and our respective elders have stopped chasing after us.

    I just really wanted to let you all know I'm having the time of my life, and THANK YOU for helping me make the right choice when I was confused. You guys inspired me :)

    So I wish the best of all for you and hope you have a great year ^^

    Ele-lux, i was thinking of you today and now I see your post. Excellent, I'm truly happy for you. May your lives be filled with such peace and happiness!

    I haven't left formally yet, but it'll be soon. I think that even if we won't experience activities like New year or birthdays like the first time celebrating them; we'll just enjoy the beauty of living normal lives, free from judgment and man-made restrictions.

    This board is inspiring for sure, and it's helping me so much.

    I wish you a great year!
