I rather apprehensively would like to say hello.
I've been raised somewhat in the truth,one of my parents is rather rather strong in the beliefs but could honestly be considered POMI with how active they are and their side of the family comes from a line of witnesses, the other parent was but faded a long time ago. As such I was taught quite a bit of JW teachings between family and off and on again Bible studies.
Recently I had a serious emotional break down over a few months after said POMI parent had advised me that they would not attend my wedding should that day come (I also had recieved a text from my bible teacher I hadnt heard from in a year or two giving a scripture) and it sorta all sank on me that my activity over the last few years was not really JW material. Since I felt like I was a JW it had torn me up a bit and for a few months I dived into study, attended the "Be Courageous" assembly and began reading the Bible both fists forward... Until really started to consider the WT views and reading over the Old Testament. I had begun noticing odd contradictions or back and forth rulings in the WT material that struck me as odd and confusing, realizing the increased emphasis on isolation/suppressed thinking and just the depressing tone of the OT made me consider something totally taboo: look into secular material.
Now after a month or two of skimming JWfacts, the exjw reddit and such I'm still conflicted on a lot of matters, especially after I admitted today to said parent earlier that I've begun having doubts, to which they were quick to remind me that the wordly materials come from Satan/apostates and thus are full of lies (its sort of hard to refute some sources like JWfacts on this as some stuff could be considered altered even if I dont personally think it is).
So basically I wont be around much but I hope I can start bouncing questions off both sides, as I still have faith in some of the beliefs I've learned but doubts are strong and the fact I'm always scared and depressed when doing anything meeting/study related has left me insanely weary.
