    Today I went to a JW cult meeting . Still recovering. Congo I was raised in. 12 family were there including 3 of my Grandkids. I'm inactive 5 yrs not DFed or DAed . Known by the elders as a apostate. 90% of Congo does not know this. I was love bombed
    , 12 people hugged me (non-family) .Even though I have a beard. ......Still recovering. Damn cult. Got to hug my daughter and Grandkids. I'm shaking inside still.

    Got to hug my family and they saw me get love bombed by the rest. The 2 evil elders in the congo that know I've threatened legal action bolted for the back room when they saw me wading through the middle ofthe congo getting hugs. So it messed with them big time.

    Thanks for update Watchtower-Free, any new faces in the congregation? How's attendance now compared to when you last attended?

    Congo was about same size. Probably 50-60 people. 70% seniors 70% female.

    It was the older women that I've known since 5 years old that started the hug line-up.

    I felt like a politician . I Just kept smiling. So I did not look possessed by Satan

    While I agree that it's possible that those who hugged and welcomed you were genuine, it still irks me. They hug you and greet you as if they're in such a high place and you're a poor, weak, lost soul in a low place. It's condescending (even if unintentional).

    I had a vid pen going in chest pocket. Wanted to catch a elders being stupid. Did not happen

    I'm glad you got to hug your family. Everything else is superfluous nonsense. Just hang in there, remember you'll feel better tomorrow.

    Thanks, WT-free.

    Same for me: just inactive, with beard and no haircut in 4 years. My JW friends still love me and I them. Same deal, too, with elders. Some run, and one says to be sure to comment -- I'll look for your hand.

    Best wishes.

    The hugging love bombing is what this cult tells its members to do.

    Did you get sucked into this pretentiousness ?

    You are NOT helping those who are still inside mentally trapped by attending these indoctrination sessions.
