Mistake number one for faders, DF'd and Apostates: Caring what the folks at the Kingdom Hall think of you.
They are your "FRIENDS", right?
Sorry to break it to you. They are NOT friends. A true friend doesn't turn their back on you, whisper behind your back
or automatically believe any bad thing others tell them.
The people at the Kingdom Hall are your "brothers" and "sisters", right?
Oh my, that again is wrong, wrong wrong!
Do you know why? The brotherhood consists of "what have you done for me lately?"
The sisterhood consists of "If you don't have some good gossip for me to spread you are my number one target."
Sad isn't it? Yes. But, NOT HEARTBREAKING.
You can't, in good mental health, CARE. It can't get you down or depress you for a very good reason.
Do you know what that reason is?
THESE AREN'T REALLY FULLY FUNCTIONING HUMAN BEINGS!
These people at the Kingdom Hall are empty shells filled with instructions and commands and automatic responses.
You may as well get upset that a ventriloquist's dummy is making fun of you or insulting you in his nightclub act.
The Watchtower Society is the Ventriloquist. Those people who go to the Kingdom Hall are just dummies whose lip flap seem to utter
nasty things about you.
It is all just and illusion.
Find yourself genuine, caring, thinking, feeling and FULLY FUNCTIONING HUMAN BEINGS for friends.
Invest your life in a give and take that GIVES and doesn't just take.
I learned the hard way after spending 20 years building fake friendships that vanished over night.
Never look back.
You can't lose WHAT YOU NEVER HAD.
