I can't let go of this obsession...
I visit and post here very often.
Sometimes for over 8 hours at a time...
I keep up, as I have a dear wife and her family that I would love to see come out.
On the other hand, I don't want to be the one that exposes the lie. I'd much rather be here to comfort them after they find out by some other means.
I don't know if that makes sense?
Kairos , I think I know where your coming from , history has shown us all to often that the recipients kill the messenger .
Lets hope they all do find out from another source .....and exit the cult.
I used to be at the point emotionally where Juan seems to be, by his O.P
As the years have rolled on I realise that my JW family will not be leaving the cult at all, unless something happens to them to wake them up, nothing I say or do will help things along.
I have made it plain that I am here for them, and when they are ready, will discuss whatever they like. And of course, if the blessed day ever came that one or more of them wished to leave, I would offer emotional and financial support as needed.
But I no longer fret about them being in, or about them having only the minimum to do with me. Life is too short to worry about people like them. I concentrate on real friends, and living each day in the best way I can.
i feel your pain.
[yea, our jw shows up in the most annoying places...]
Thats why my old friend made the conclusion,
[when she and I had a discussion about teachings a while back]. she said to me,
" if we leave, were misfits in society, our brains are one way, but we want it another, and at this point, were too old to start over'
she decided to abandon me, stick with the org, continue to go along,
of course shes 'weak'. she does what she wants.
Im all by myself in my quest, lol , there isnt a person I know that is an xjw. I just wish somehow i knew who had thoughts like mine at the old cong i went to.
ive heard of one in my area, but was never at all familiar with them.
but oddly id bank on at least half a dozen people at this site who know at least one if not more of my large still in jw extended family, they were quite the popular ones in the Pittsburgh area.
