After reading Flowers posting about her brother, it really got me thinking (a dangerous occupation with me) LOL, what is it about the JWs, that when you are in the org, you feel that you are in the'right religion', and then wham, something happens, to make you realise that things are not so rosey as you were first led to believe.
So my point is.. When you leave the 'org' you feel such great relief, as if a burden has been lifted from your shoulders, and that you feel that at long last (as in my case) you can really develop a good relationship with our Creator..
But, if it were the 'true religion' surely we would feel downhearted and oppressed in leaving, and really we would not want to leave at all, as all things would be made clear to us, and we would feel happy again, but that is not the case.
I hope that this makes sense. As at the moment my mother and sisters are still not speaking to me, it has now been a month, and the tatic I know, is that by (hopefully) ignoring me, I will come to my senses and return to the fold, and maybe even leave my sweet talking evil slave class husband!! (yeah right). The thing is though, I actually like 'me' now, and I feel that I have been under oppression for so long, that life is now for me to live with my immediate family, and not having to worry about what others may say. Believe it or not, even though I have mentioned my mother and sisters, I have not once been tempted to call them (which is highly unusual for me as we are all close), and I feel not a sense of remorse.
So I feel great. what about you??
