I like your story. You had the perfect situation where you were able to pass into obscurity and live your life.👍🏻
Then, at a later date, you accepted contact with the JWs and kept quiet about your previous association. You did this to satisfy your curiosity. Once you realized they "didn't have it", you walked away for good.
Whether or not you had any mental anguish over this, I'm glad you got away with little or no damage - especially financial/career damage.👍🏻 Lots of older Witnesses are in a bad situation there.
