    Were you a sought after associate?

    Were you often invisible?

    Did other Witnesses view you as "exemplary"?

    Invisible, flying under the radar. A cousin recently told me she thought it was strange that I had been courted by a brother but no one said anything about my not being baptized. I think some folks just assumed that I had been. They never asked.

    at the outset before and after baptism an uber Witness, even chose which parties I attended, towards the end rebellious , outspoken doesn't show humility, thank god this madness ended 20 years ago.

    Were you a sought after associate? NO Were you often invisible? YES Did other Witnesses view you as "exemplary"? NO Then I happened to come into a substantial sum of money and it all changed over night! The strange thing was that I hadn't changed in any way. So much for the theory of a "loving brotherhood" and being impartial.

    I was an elder up until the time I quit.

    We were upper middle class, so we were considered people of the "JW rich class".

    Finally, I achieved the high rank of "Apostate".

    A future servant, elder, CO, ????. My dad was an elder and the brothers were always "encouraging" me to reach out for "privelidges"

    But fuck that
