    When I joined this forum I was seeking more people who felt the same way I did in terms of seeing the Jehovah's Witness Organization for what it truly was; a false prophet.

    Once I found like-minded members I slowly started to open up and participate more in trying to help others that were also exiting mentally and physically.

    Today, I offer support to anyone who desires it regardless of what they believe or not believe.

    So what is your purpose on this board?

    Support? Leaks? Exposure? Venting?

    During my dark teen days I felt so bad that I wanted to just end my life and be done with it. I found this forum and a lot of the members were very supportive. Now I'm studying at Uni Computer Science and I'm happy because soon i'll be able to fade away and never return to the cult. I hope I can return the favor to anyone who needs help. Thank you <3

    I came here a few years after my fade out of curiosity...a relative of an exJW friend said they had stopped disfellowshipping and I wanted to see if that was true, also I was curious how they were handling 2015, a hundred years plus one since their big false prophecy, were they going to change their stance? Well, disfellowshipping is going on strong, and they're STILL sticking to 1914.

    But, i found that reminiscing here among people who have had very similar childhoods to mine is quite comforting, and also I stay to offer support to people going through dark and lonely times as they are trying to leave.

    I lurk here to gather info that is not on jw.org.

    My main purpose is to keep up with what's going on in JWdom, but also to learn more of the real history of JWdom and to analyze JW doctrine & policy. That is because JWdom so affected my life and still does.

    As a JW, I was not allowed to really analyze JW doctrine & policy. I had to just accept and praise it. I was not supposed to research real JW history.

    Another reason for being here is that I have found that there is a lot of good insight on this forum. I learn from a lot of people, even those I disagree with. I am still seeking, and reading all the views, comments, suggested readings, analysis, etc. has really helped me.

    Morbid curiosity. Info about a train wreck in progress. Self congratulatory back pats for escaping while young(whew!). Encouragement for those trapped in. People who understand the perversity of family relationships in the org.

    Wish I would have done the same. Nevertheless, congrats!!

    I'm always looking for ways to deal productively with JW family members.

    And I try to give advice to those who are struggling if I feel like I have any insight to give.

    And I've grown to really like a lot of you. :)
