Your efforts were part of the collective "group effort". Isn't that how the JW's teach it, anyway? It's not what we do/did individually, but the fact that his "people as a whole" are out there bringing the Kingdom good news to non-JW's???
So, that having been the case, if you didn't do the work, somebody else probably would have eventually done it for you. After all, like PT Barnum said, something about a sucker being born every minute. He merely took advantage of the situation!! Same with JW's, as a group.
I guess the best we can do (in the eyes of anyone who we helped become a JW or who we encouraged to remain one) is live a happy, productive life "outside the Borg". It shocks and stuns most JW's that we can actually live a decent, happy life, "outside of Jehovah's organization" as they say.
