    Stuckinarut2, my wish for you is that you be kind to yourself about this.

    You did not fail anything.

    You did not take a step in a wrong direction.

    Youre fine.

    Honestly? I think the harder it is to disentangle is just a reflection of how very much one honors ones vows and commitments.

    I am an extremely loyal person and turning my back and walking away is so very hard.

    Because of that I feel a lot of empathy for you and your situation.

    Its only 31 days out of the big picture and who knows?

    Things will probably happen in that time that will make your way even clearer.

    Don't forget to count four hours a week for Family Study night. Frankly I think these nights, if used judiciously (exercise a little Headship) can get the whole family some practice in Independent Thinking. Study one bible book. Or the Beatitudes. Without aids. Nice chewy steak instead of pablum for a change.


    A Watcher, you are a strange one. I would preach in the middle of Times Square if the JWs had the truth. You don't want to preach the truth for the GB?!?!

    Do what you gotta do. Why don't you spend that time, the hours you actually do work, dropping off magazines at laundry mats with a sticker saying "this is a cult". Also be sure and count your time here, you can honestly say you were talking about Jehovah's Witnesses, right?

    I've read about individuals on this forum who would "pad" or completley fake their hours, or who were in charge of the monthly congregation report and altered the entire groups report in order to stay in the good graces of the Circuit Overseer.

    Then there's the whole business of having two people at the same door or an entire car group waiting in the driveway, all counting time while one person talks to an occasional householder. The whole thing is such a joke....don't waste your energy feeling bad about it. Sometimes it's enough just to get by as best you can.

    Just post here and count the time. Tell them I said it was ok.

  • Quarterback

    OMG, I did it too. I was afraid to tell everyone here, but you gave me the courage to speak out.

    Data, our small territory is already covered frequently and thoroughly. I don't need to pioneer.

    Stuckinarut2/Quarteback; Keep records of your encounters

    at the doors. What are the objection at the doors these days.

    How many people you had a 10 min. conversation with, how many

    told you to go to hell..How many studies were generated for

    the month of August.

    Your assignment if you choose, how is the preaching work for

    Jehovah working out today....LOL

    Just be kind to the householders and pretend to be selling avon or something,

    anything is better than trying to push the blue square website on someone.
