Sitting in the local cafe enjoying a coffee this morning when the witnessing group showed up.
Before I had a chance to escape I was sharing my table with 2 'sisters'. One was my best friend for years until I stopped going to meetings. (such conditional friendships).
Before I knew it I was being bombarded with questions like how I was going spiritually. Questions they already knew the answers to by the way.
As a fader I want to keep the relationship with my parents and siblings so I cant come out and say what I really think or I'd be DF.
I was dying to let loose and tell them it was all a load of BS, they are being lied to and wasting their lives.
Im lucky to have the support of my Husband in our leaving the borg but I get so frustrated when confronted with these brainwashed fools.
The woman who used to be my best friend and her elder husband are taking their 3 young children to a dangerous third world country (think child abduction and organ harvesting) to serve where the need is great. CRAZY!!
These people truly are brainwashed and we cant even try and get through to them for fear of being DF.
In case you wondered my family live interstate so its mainly phone contact with them and they never ask about my spirituality as they know Ive faded.
So its just the occasional witless who flags me down on the street now (they dont bother coming to my house).
Im interested to hear from all those poor frustrated people who cant totally let it all go because of family or friends they dont want to hurt. My sympathies are especially with those who have a partner in the 'troof'.
