Are you happy to have been a JW? Is there a constructive side in it all for you? Or do you wish you had never seen their culty smiles?
When I first left I just couldnt see any worth for the painful experience, now I dont regret having been a JW as it gives a great insight into a cultic worldview and a mindset that we may have never understood or been able to empathise with. I wouldnt want to live through the exiting years again (gawwwd no, wouldnt wish them on my worst enemy), yet I believe the years spent inside have had a productive outcome.
Even now I am still learning that I have things in my lifestyle that are still attached to the WTower but they are harmless (I think) and can be stripped off in the way someone would pick a cobwed off their clothes!
Thanks for responding
