Just one foot in...

    ...with one foot out.

    *deep breath*

    From day one, I've felt like I was one foot out of this religion, but it took me until over a decade to reach the point where I am ready to move on. I'm a newly registered user to this site. This is the first tangible action that I have taken to free myself from an organization that I've more than outgrown.

    I feel like I have a lot to say, but I'm not really ready to say it. I'm just happy to introduce myself to the rest of you and finally speak with people who are like-minded. Over the next few weeks, I'll revisit this thread to start sharing some of my stories and observations. Eventually, I hope to contribute research articles to various ex-JW sites, covering a few topics that I've noticed the big sites haven't addressed yet.

    For now, I'm just happy to be here. Thank you all for giving me a place to go.

    Yes welcome.

    When I left the Organization 19 years ago I had no idea there was a places like this one. To not think your crazy, because of what you have gone through is a real comfort for sure. Yes, good people here with lots of insane stories of what this organization has done to people.

    Namaste my friend

    First warm welcome, secondly if you want contentment and calm put that other foot on the side that’s OUT. Keep reading the experiences here on this site, then ask yourself if there is any god who cares he surely isn’t backing these frauds.
