So far my oldest niece and oldest sister cut me off. I'm waiting for the goodbye texts from my other siblings. My parents asured me they would never cut me off. But I can count on my self righteous brothers to give my parents hard time about it. My mom agreed but said she doesn't care they'll never understand because they dont have children of their own.
It's a long story but I got mad at my jealous, petty, envious, christian niece and told her she is in a cult. Right away she ran to my family and told them what I said. Mostly in my opinion she did it because she lives for drama. She was one person in my family I thought I was closest to. But I've been paying attention to her true colors lately. She was treating another niece of mine badly. She was jealous because I was spending time with her. So she started giving her a hard time telling her I am not good association. There is so much more to it but it is just too much. That's how the ball got rolling.
I texted them all and told them I only meant that I am apostate by the myriam webster's definition. I don't picket assemblies and I don't speak badly of JWs. Not entirely true but whatever. But the word apostate is just too damn scary for them. I told them all I love them very deeply. I am here if they ever need anything or if they change their minds. We don't have to talk about our views on religion and god. And I just pleaded with them to please let me know if anything happens to our parents and to not deny me the chance to say goodbye. My mom has heart problems and my dad is diabetic and not aging well.
I'm dealing with it. I'm angry and sad but I have my little boy now and he is the most important person in my life now. It's bringing me comfort.
I'm kind of shocked too. I never thought this would happen.
