My daughter and I have personally been on the receiving end of Zeb's kindness all the way from Oz! So thanks again Zeb. Her toy Koala is still pride of place (she actually put it on the Christmas tree a few days ago instead of a bauble).
Just reading here on this forum, I've noticed that ex JWs seem to be
more giving than when they were in as well as current jws. I've noticed a
pull in this direction for myself as well. Any ideas or theories as to
why exciting the bORG seems to make people more giving?
I find myself a lot more outgoing and friendly. I cant believe i used to look down on these people and see them as not real people. I think in all cases, as soon as one group dehumanizes another group it makes it easier to treat them with disrespect, easier to not empathize with them and easier to think of them being destroyed without a care.
The Nazi's did it with the Jews.
The Japanese did it with the Chinese.
And Jehovah's Witnesses to it to everybody else.
Once you're out and see the world as a wonderful, exciting place you appreciate it more because you've missed so much. So you jump in with both feet and want to get involved.
That's my take on it anyway.
