    As ian Dury used to sing "What a Waste!".........By the time that I was moved to wake up I was painfully aware that instead of living forever , my life was 2/3 over and I had wasted most of it

    As Data Dog said

    It's not that I regret all of my life choices, it's just that all my choices were never really mine.

    We suppressed our individuality, we did what we were told, became clones of The Watchtower

    No good blaming others, we allowed it to hapen....."nobody's fault but mine"

    BOC, I was under the impressing that you have resumed thinking for yourself again!

    OUBLIETTE - yes, the thinking has resumed! In fact I'm studying for two final exams this week. . . . Sooooo I should probably get off here!


    Born-ins don't have much choice. Once you grow up and IF you learn TTATT, you have choices. One such choice is to warn others, even if you must do it in secret.

    I could say education like the rest but I've made up for it since leaving, I was never a school lover although I did really well. What I could have done with was real friends , the ones my children have, made at school and still there after you leave. I'm very jealous that they have that and I missed out on that thanks to my parents. Thank goodness we got out before gone AWOL and I made the same mistake with our kids!
