speaking with those who are Df'd or Da'd would you, could you, begin associating with your JW family and friends? Not that I believe they will, but I was thinking "what if" they did. I wonder if one's JW family realizes how much damage is done to a relationship when they choose their "religion" over their family? Would you again associate with you family? I guess each circumstance is differnt but I'm not certain that I could. I've seen so many people Df'd over the years and in many cases the JW famly members "skirt" the rules and still associate with their Df'd family member. However, in other cases (as in mine) JW family members go even beyond what the Society has written. One almost begins to wonder if being Df'd just brought out the true colors of certain people.
In any case, could you picture yourself picking up where you left off with your JW family & friends? Were they just "following orders"?
