So, what do you think the reason was for this woman to not accept your point of view? Was it timing, delivery or fear? Would you try a different approach in the future?
I THINK it was a combination of all,-
Fear of the unknown, information OVER LOAD, DENIAL ,
it sorta like the guy in the Peanuts Charlie Brown who had the Towel that he would not let go and when you consider her indoctrination it is very understandable-
she is dfed for reasons that perhaps are not related to Doctrines, so she may have a feeling of perhaps "well I did do something wrong and i am paying for my error" - which is a very common view held by folks who get Dfed perhaps over some type of "moral issue
so they often times feel due to the indoctrination that THEY DESERVE TO BE TREATED LIKE DIRT
as i pointed out to her I didn't leave due to being mistreated, many folks on this board and others often time relate how BADLY THEY WERE TREATED by fellow jw, elder, co etc- and as a result i told her it often times cause such ones to take a step back and be willing to reexamine things,
but for me and perhaps others it was not MISTREATMENT i was treated well, i was loved i was part of the "IN CROWD" for me i often times tried to include others who felt they were being shafted and cut short to join in with me as part of the IN CROWD, but i always got dogged for doing that-
my main issue of concern was not personlities but DOGMAS!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I WAS A DYED IN THE WOOL SOCIETY MAN i was taught that it must BE IN PRINT, i didn't give my opinion on matters my ref was always THE BOUND VOLS
so for me it was when i could no longer justify the changing dogmas starting with the GENERATION DOGMA and from there it was all down hill-
as has been pointed out so well in the many post THE SEED HAS BEEN PLANTED
one of the most interesting things about EXAMINING THE ORG, once you open PANDORA BOX YOU CAN'T PUT IT BACK
so as she sits in the meetings and hears all the things THAT MANY WILL COMMENT OR SAY
SHE WILL say herself like many of us: " THAT AIN'T TRUE CAUSE I LOOKED THAT UP MYSELF"
Once you are given a TASTE OF FREE THINKING it is hard to turn around and resubmit to control
that is why i told her to SAVE OUT LAST EMAIL FOR trust me she will look back on that email and say:
"Damn I could have gotten out earlier and moved on with my life"
