...with one foot out.
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.
