So I grew up around this religion and never liked it. nothing ever made sense and nobody ever clarified anything if i asked them a question. I'm 17 right now so you'd figure oh only one more year until you can leave. not exactly. One of my best friends was also raised in this religion but is planning on leaving too, as well as a bunch of other friends in different congregations. I've been asked if i belong to a religion by some people and always either said no or im an athiest. Because lets face it, jehovahs witnesses are just a bunch of hypocritical, witless, numbfucks who believe anything they read or hear.
Nothing ever made sense to me like why cant we listen to certain types of music, or watch certain movies, or anytihing of that sort. before you go rushing to say that its better for me to sty in this cult, let me tell you, it is NOT. i hate this religion so much, personally i feel like growing up as a witness kid, your social life is stunted, your life experience is stunted, pretty much experiencing what life is like is stunted. My mom was a very strict parent so naturally, Im a very sneaky kid who can lie on the spot, memorize loud parts of the floor, always have a solid alibi, and get away with whatever i want. Im getting off track but what im tying to say is i grew up in a very sheltered environment, i wasnt even able to hang out with friends from school because they werent witnesses.
Because of this ive gotten very good at hiding pretty much everything, got involved with bad people, drugs, probably everything you could think of. All that because i wanted to just have a taste of what was never given to me. Youre probably thinking "What a lazy brat" and if you are then i will kindly ask you to fuck off about now because whatever your view on gen z, ive worked for just about everything around me and worked for my brothers in construction since i was 13 years old. but long story short my mom and step dad basically forced their religion down my throat my entire life and now im being forced to quit pretty much what keeps me together at this point in my life which is racing motocross because its "too competitive". i see this as some bullshit because one of my friends was telling me about what happened at some supposed to be friendly witness baseball game. (this friend is a MLB prodigy for the dodgers) and from what hes told me, witnesses are assholes when it comes to competition. i split my eyelid open playing basketball with witnesses before and can say that they are worse than normal people
anyway i just came here to rant about that and ask anyone how they told their parents that they wanted to leave this religion. thanks
