I am about 60% through the book EXiting the JW Cult: A Healing Handbook: For Current & Former Jehovah's Witnesses
I bought this book because of a post about it last week so a big thank you for that.
I must say that everyone on this forum should consider giving this book a go. As an ex-jw and a psychologist she really covers a lot of the emotions we face and discussed the many stages we all go through.
I have found it liberating and challenging but mostly it has helped me start healing.
One of my biggest moments is when she talked about how many ex-JWs struggle to know WHO they are because we have repressed who we are for so long. She explains that it will take time for us to connect with our authentic self and gives some great tips on how to do it.
That spoke to me because I was comfortable with knowing TTATT and also with my exit plans, but I still struggle with my own self and understanding what I really want to do. I also believe God calls us to do different things - not only witnessing but I was not clear on my future path. I now have peace in that.
She touches on so many things that are useful I wanted to share it with you.
