Losing my Hold On JW speak. Has it Happened to You Yet and if so, How?
Yes, I am proud to stop using the loaded terms that the society has created!
I have a friend who left the borg and went out of her way to make sure her speech was non-WT.
She'd say, "So how long were you in the lie?"
Even ex-JWs would be shocked, but she'd follow up by saying, "Well, we can't call it 'the truth' any more, can we?"
It is funny just how insidious the expression "The truth" is!
I know ones who still use that term after not attending for decades!
I simply say "The Society" or the "The Religion" when talking to witnesses now...
i just use the word " cult"
