I have been associated with the witnesses all my life. Going to the meetings was much different before the society got so large, 6,000,000 witnesses and probably at least that many not active anymore!
I am sure that my life has been dramatically changed by this association. Some things actually molded me into the person that I am today, mostly for the good. The honesty and moral way of life I was taught at a very young age has made me a good person. I never went to college, so my way of life along those lines make me mad! Unfortunaly your income has an effect on who you are on a day to day basis.
The guilt and the horror of daily reminders of the end of the world and to my existence has harmed beyond repair.
I have enjoyed this site for a while by just reading the comments but not replying has become more than I can resist!
