There have been a number of threads / posts here over the years about ex JW`s needing to see therapists for what they are going through , and I can appreciate that.
Obviously there are many ex JW`s on here that haven`t ever felt the need to see a therapist ,and I`m just wondering why not ?
Why does one feel the need and another does not ?
Is it to do with born ins as against those who were converts ? Or is there some other factor that one see`s the need where another one doesn`t.?
In my own case I was a convert at twenty years of age, so my formative years were not influenced by WT teachings ,I grew up in the world so to speak and was very much a part of it .
Whereas someone who is born into the religion is indoctrinated from the earliest part of their life and surely that must affect them and their growing up in the world ,certainly different from my growing up in the world.
Don`t get me wrong when I became a believer I took it hook line and sinker nobody believed it more than I did and I`m ashamed to say it now but I would have let my sons die rather than give consent to a blood transfusion , that`s how much I believed in the JW. religion.
I have been out of the JW`s now for about 26 years and been here for about 12 -14 years this site and others but I have never felt the need for a therapist ,I don`t have a problem with coming to terms with leaving the religion or doctrines or beliefs or anything. I just come here because I spent 32 years of my life as a JW and if I can Anti-witness so be it .
And on the other hand their are people who do see / feel the need for therapists to get them through this life.
I hope I have been articulate enough with the Topic Title etc. ,and would appreciate your comments
