I am sitting here writing this posting as a way of venting for all the frustration that I have been building up over the years of slavery to this Beast called the wbts..
I was a born in, and was denied all the normal things in life, I always felt left out as a kid, and even as a young adult. I was the only jw for most if not all of my school years, I was harrased, mocked, teased, and even pushed around, because I was taught to stand up for what I beleive in. Th problem was, I didnt beleive it, I always felt there was something not right about the org. But as a born in, you are expected, if not bullied, into beleiving outright lies year after year.
I have since been freed from the slavery and mind control of the wbts. However my freedom has come at a cost, I at one time considered it a "great" cost, but it has since been downgraded to just a "cost". That cost being, as you all know, is the alienation of all of my freinds and family (and I use those terms very loosely). As far as my relatives and freinds that are JW's are concerned, I am dead to them. I know that Jesus would NOT approve of the treatment that those of us, who were df"d for no good reason, have been recieving.
I have 5 fleshly brothers and sisters, many neices and nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins, and even my own son who do not even care about me, they dont know, or even care if I am sick, or even deceased. My heart is torn apart by the fact that they would rather follow the BS org, who has continually lied to ALL of its followers, than to even inquire as to my well being. To all of you, and you know who you are, I have come to the decision that you are the ones that are "dead" to me. Your conditional love is as fake as the "generational overlap" propaganda.
I have since made "real" freinds, ones that are not my freinds because of what I beleive, but because of who I am, its called unconditional love.
It appears to me the JW's are no different than radical muslims who hate and want to kill anyone who do not share their beleifs. Instead of bombs, they use psychological explosives, that do just as much harm..
