There is more to my story but, what wanted to know is, were there any of you guys who were labelled as having a rebellious spirit because you chose to do your thinking on your own and chose your freedom over having the WTS telling you what you're allowed to think or do when it comes to your life?
Yes, absolutely. I believe my free thinking personality was why it took decades for me to be appointed a MS and I believe it is the reason I'm being shunned even though I'm merely inactive.
Be thankful you figured it out at 18. There are a lot of people like me who were stuck in for decades. Ah well, better late then never. Good luck to you!
