Are you angry for having been a JW?

    Twitch, thank you for those wise words, and they express exactly where I am right now. I simply do not have time for backward looking anger.

    Yes, I do regret much, but regret is not the toxic emotion that anger is.

    All I retain is some anger which I direct at JW Org for not protecting the vulnerable, and allowing shocking Abuse to continue, as they do to this moment.

    So the answer is mainly yes we have anger towards the Watchtower org...can we put it to use. I wonder?

    Phizzy, regrets; most certainly but the anger is towards the smug self-righteousness of the GB. The lack of care for those sexually abused is symptomatic of the ethos of the whole organisation. It exists for the furtherance of its leadership and nothing else. They foster a culture of dependency based on the edicts of the GB as if they come from God's own mouth... but in practice there is a systematic emotional abuse of all its subordinate members.

    Not surprising that some of the emotionally abused go on to do similar abusive things to others.
