Sabastious my wife and I was talking about this during lunch. Since I am a born-in I would say since I was a little boy up until two years ago. When I ended therapy. I have been building my self esteem ever since. My confidence in myself comes and goes. It is a work in progress. The cult took alot from me and my wife. Totally ADD
It was/is the same for me. I feel like I became a young adult at 24 which was 3 years ago. Scriptures in the Bible about "baby food" ring so true for me now and I really don't mean that in a condescending way towards the Witnesses. They are the ones that choose to write gerber Watchtower as well as choose to serve it under the ruse of "food at the proper time."
EDIT: Actually come to think of it gerber Watchtower does sound kind of condescending.
