My son who is 26 yrs. old recently confided in my wife and myself that he is having a rough time moving on past the jw mindset.
he was associated with the witnesses for the first 24 years of his life, and he really tried to do the whole witness thing correctly, yet he was and still is a shy person. Now that he has been out for two years, he is having a lot of anger toward people who believe in God. he spends quite a bit of time arguing with people online about how unrealistic a religious belief can be. I can take just so much of his negativity, he made the comment on Saturday, " well jesus walked on water, yet mankind has walked on the moon". I just had to walk away.
My wife believes that he is slowly working his way out of the wt mindset, in which he spent most of his life following because of his parents./
Has anyone out there dealt with this type of anger, or actually worked through the anger phase with yourself, or a family member ?
We think that perhaps seeing a therapist might help, but with his anger toward religion, I think that he might just ignore our suggestion.
Thank you for your comments, I may not get around to read them for a few days !
