Well lets see....I was a JW for over 20 years of my life, during my more "impressionable" years.
Both my sisters are still JW's as well as their husbands and my niece and nephew.
My husband is an ex JW, he was a third generation JW.
It is kind of hard to cut it totally out of your life when did and still does influnce indirectly and directly the person you are and the people you interact with.
I come here to get support from people who understand where I am coming from and where I have been. I personally don't understand why some people can't seem to *get* that and seem to take issue with it. Does our being here in some way offend you??? Does it personally hurt YOU??? If not then why do you care so much one way or another what we do here?
Hate to break it to you but ALL of us have REAL lives and we consider this a part of them. I have met people in person, and met them in chat and met them in personal one on one chat...I consider some of them very much a part of my REAL life because they have influnced my REAL life.
Xena of the I wish some people would get their own freaking lives and quit worrying so much about other peoples class!
