    Thanks for sharing the letter Paul!

    Quite apart from anything else, composing and sending such a letter can be very therapetic in and of itself, regardless of whether or not he replied or how he perceived the letter and so on. Well done.

    As I often say, self-efficacy is a hallmark of healthy mental- health functioning. You have put into words how his actions ended up strengthening you in the longer term. I love this way of viewing hardship.

    In my own case, although initially devastated by being disfellowshipped, as I looked back on it, I realized that the whole "business" of leaving the organization had compelled me to grow up and start taking responsibility for my life - rather than inhabiting a la-la land of responsibility-starving blame and misery.

    Well done. Your website has helped myriads .

    Now when a JW leaves a housholder that person goes right to the web .

    Great letter Paul! I love your site. When I first started to wake up, your site was the first one I visited to research TTATT. Thank you for your research and work. And a big thank you goes out to Dwayne JW for motivating you.

    Let's not be too hard on Dwayne JW. It was his cult persona at work. Who knows, maybe one day Dwayne JW will become Dwayne XJW and he will look back at his life as a JW and console himself with the thought that even while still in, he at least indirectly helped many to wake up to TTATT - perhaps more than he converted to TTAW (The Truth According to Watchtower)
