    Greetings, LV101, Gwydion, ZAPPA-ESQUE, Smiddy, and zeb:

    It was wonderful waking up to your lovely, kind words. Stories sometimes don't appear to get read much here. This is a story based on our similar backgrounds: times before jcs, vacillating JW friends and family, waking up, Bible dramas, shunning, etc. I changed some terms ("church tribunal") for readers not familiar with JW terminology.

    Thanks again for reading and commenting.

    Ok Coco, you have me in tears.

    Recent occurrences have left me sad, annoyed, frustrated, angry... I wish sometimes I could be more unfeeling like these JW's I know. But that's wrong...having feelings is what led me out of that cult, thankfully.

    I'm sorry, Dagney, for the sadness and anger you feel. Yes, we do have that in common.

    The above emotions affect me most when I see "happy" JW gatherings of friends and family on social media. I would like to be there amongst the dear people I have spent most of my life with. It's not possible, on either side of the fence. I agree so much with what your wrote -- THANK YOU! I'm learning detachment . . .

    Blessings and peace, Dear One.
