Interesting comments! I consider myself a happy person as a rule. I’m not disgruntled and don’t live in the past. I try not to allow situations or people to get to me. Sometimes they are hopeless and I can deal with that because I know I can’t change those things or people.
Since You Have Left The Religion Are You Happier?
I was never in the religion in the sense that I never believed in it despite my father's attempts. But I was dragged along to meetings and we waisted a lot of time there. My parents had huge mental issues that perhaps would have been helped if they had ventured on another path. One of the biggest problems about JWs and other radical cults is the parents "divine rights" to drag their children through this. It is a really a problem but so is a state powerful enough to do what in a narrow perspective might seem the right thing, take children away from JW parents. On the other had I believe in the divine right to have guns and wished all people in Europe had them. That will have victims too.
