Been reading jwfacts and starting to really question everything I've believed the last 12 years. It'll take time for it to properly sink in and for me to take the plunge if that's what I decide to do. Its hard giving up all the friends ive thought of as my family for so many years. I'm shy by nature and worried about making new friends lol. I'm moving to Scotland next year which would make it easier to cut myself off from jws but its still a big and scary step to take and i have to make some new friends in the meantime once i move
My oldest brother who is still a JW made it clear to me he isn't very happy with his life.. He sprang some stuff about our childhood to his wife recently that im sure is emotional damage from our childhoods. Not to toot my own horn but my brother is a millionaire. I'm not kidding. He lives in a 2 million dollar house. Goes to show the org nor money can make you happy. Granted our childhood wasn't the best with things my brother and I went thru. His exact words to me where "we weren't raise for success" he blames my parents. Realisticly its kinda there fault but also the org. He will never admit the org is to blame. His wife doesn't need him she comes from a wealthy family. He isn't a bad guy but is unhappy and he probably feels bad he dragged his wife into our family drama.
I don't think a lot of people are happy In the truth really but they plod on thinking there's nothing else for them and they just have to keep going til Armageddon comes then they'll be truly happy
