I realize many on this forum are born-in or raised-in and suffered and still suffering with family shunning and/or the bitter after-effects of no college or career.
I came in as a young adult and spent at least two decades of my best years in this stupid religion. I am a fifteen year "fader"....But, at least I held onto my job until retirement, so the damage from the religion was not as bad as it could have been.
I am pretty much content with my life and thought I got over most of the anger. That is, until I started looking at friends of friends lists on FB and saw profiles of some grown children of affluent JWs I knew. I got nauseous.
I realized why I was angry: these young people did not suffer in the JW religion and did not go through what I went through all those years ago. Do you think any of these spoiled kids could relate to a working single woman who was criticized and considered "not spiritual" for holding a full-time job?? Nope. None of them had this problem. Also, most of them were small or in infancy when the 1995 changed teaching on Generation came out. What would they know??
While I'm aware that everything is not always as it seems, the sad fact is that some Jehovah's Witnesses have a cushy life and are not aware of what is wrong with the religion. They have a great life there and are not going anywhere.
But, I'm glad I'm out at least. But, no more looking at JW Facebook profiles for me.
