    I reread a letter today that I received 40 years ago today. Never thought I would read it again 40 years later in this system.

    I was never going to leave school, get married or have children. I was going to wait until the new system to get married so I would be sure my husband was a true witness! I left school, went to work and pioneered. I waited until I was 28 but then got married and had five children.

    I was never going to retire or get a pension in this system and so opted out of the pension scheme! I was never going to get old. I am now 60. I feel so mad about that pension scheme. I am getting some because I paid in for some years before opting out, but it could have been double.

    I was hopefully never going to die (I always feared getting killed in the tribulation), but now believe I will. My mum was never going to die. She is very old now so she will.

    So many false hopes drummed into us that we believed. So sad.

    I was never going to celebrate birthdays or Christmas but I do now with my children although secretly because my husband is still a witness.

    I was hopefully never going to 'fall away' but I did. I would never leave Jehovah but I did.

    The Rebel ( A) Become a full fledged 100% happy apostate :-) . However i am still glad that attending the K,H and growing up being a full fledged witness in the 1980s, prevented me fron wasting so many years in front of the T.V screen wondering who killed J.R, on Dallas.

    Like St George of England, I was a born in. I only woke up 4 years ago. As a little girl in the 1950's, I was told so many untruth's, as gospel. Everybody was older, and taller, and talked with such conviction. Absolutely, Millions NOW LIVING WILL NEVER DIE. That was a huge misguiding LIE WT! Absolutely ridiculous statement, when you look back on it. I heard it from Franz. I heard it from Knorr. I read it hundreds of times for decades in their own liter-trash. Yes, I was a Jdub zombie, just the way WT/JW..org like their audiences to be.

    I heard the "You will never go to school"? Huh? I was so looking forward to kindergarten. Went. Yay!

    Is WT/JW..org interested only in their own advancement when they say: You'll never go to school or shouldn't get higher education to further YOUR life. WT says work for us for free! Huh??? I knew older ones in the 1950's, who never graduated high school, didn't get married or qualify for a good enough job to buy a home. The Big A was right around the corner! They told us this from the platform, every week, like it was the Boogie Man come to get us. All along it was just an age old scare tactic, to get us psychologically strung out, so we would listen to the strongest/loudist voice, in the room. If you are only allowed to attend their 5 meetings a week of brain washing tactics... you will become... brain washed.

    Everything I have done in my 66 years, wasn't supposed to happen, according to WT/JW..org's teachings. WT/JW..org, you ARE BIG FAT SELF RIGHTEOUS LIARS!!!

    So anyone who is lurking, please wake up NOW, get OUT, before WT/JW..org rules and ruins your life.

    Lois, what a wonderful way to end your post. Hopefully, others can be awakened before they lose 40 or 50 or 60 years of their lives as wel did.
