My spouse and I believe someone is trashing our name. Does it hurt or bother us? Maybe a little. We only want those in our lives who want to be there. We are still the same, funny, good hearted and generous people BUT (big but here), we don't believe the JW religion anymore. This has caused some (most) to have no contact with us. We enjoy each others company and have a few "worldly" friends. It's ok...we'll get by and enjoy those who appreciate our company and we appreciate theirs.
Sorry Stuck. What these people do to one another is disturbing. You, or anyone else, does not deserve being treated like that.
