    I thought I would share this FB message from someone who considers himself to be a "true" friend of mine. After learning from my former husband tha I am disfellowshipped, he writes the following:

    FB true friend: "XXXXX with tears in my eyes I will be deleting you but I want you as my sister again. Pls tell me whenever you are back. Don't delay...... I miss you already ;( "

    Me: Who told you I was disfellowshipped?

    FB true friend: YYYYYY

    Me: I'm very sad [FB true friend]. Why do I need to lose my friends in the most trying time of my life?

    FB true friend: I don't know how to answer that. However, you know who it is that can get you through this. Pls XXXXX do what you must so this is just temporary and we can be there for each other again. I'm sure all you true friends feel the same way. Pls don't let, you-know-who get in the way of this. He will succeed if you let him. This will be my last correspondence, my old friend ;-(

    Ridiculous! He can't even answer the question! And, I asked the question so that he could think some about what disfellowshipping actually means.

    And I don't understand the cryptic language. Why not just use Jehovah and Satan's name in his "last correspondence" with me.

    Clearly, I'm upset...

    hyp·o·crite [hip-uh-krit] noun 1. a person who pretends to have virtues, moral or religious beliefs, principles, etc., that he or she does not actually possess, especially a person whose actions belie stated beliefs. 2. a person who feigns some desirable or publicly approved attitude, especially one whose private life, opinions, or statements belie his or her public statements. This person is not your friend, they're only a member of an exclusive club willing to eat and laugh and love as long as your membership is current. Sorry..

    No, this person is not a "true" friend at all. I am actually okay with that now. But I'm having a hard time thinking of those whom I still hold dear to my heart as not being "true" friends.

    It hurts! But you will find true friends as you move away from the cult and on with your life.

    Sorry girl... It's a cult mindset. Try to console yourself with the fact that he is not in control of his own mind really.
