Our daughter in law, Tracey, who was never a JW, is a hair stylist. I went to the place she works for a haircut the other day, and was telling her about the big party at Joy and Steve's last month. We talked about a lot of things about the party, and then she said this:
"It seems to me, that all of you are still Jehovah's Witnesses in many ways. Why can't you just let it go and move on? So many of you are still so bitter and angry, and have lost your faith in anything."
I thought it was a fair question. She thinks Dave (me a little bit) is the most balanced one she knows of all ex JW's (because he still believes in God), and the rest are kind of unstable (I'm sure she didn't mean you, Princess). I explained that many of us have been hurt immeasurably and it takes a long time to heal, and most of us will be "ex Jehovah's Witnesses" for the rest of our lives. She understands that concept, and seemed to accept it as an answer.
Just sharing. (she is a Christian and has a very strong faith in God/Jesus, so that might color her thoughts too)
