Is it because we were in the cult Watchtower Compound that we talk about being ex-JW's when we stop being active? I have never heard anyone say that I was an ex-Catholic or an ex-Lutheran or an ex-Baptist. They just stop going to their church and don't talk about it.
Years after not stepping inside a Kingdom Hell, many of us still have to talk about being ex-JW's. Were we so damaged that we just can't help ourselves or is it because we lost so many years of our lives that we are still pissed off about it?
Not sure who you are talking about. I only talk about being an ex-JW in this forum, nowhere else, unless rarely they come up in a conversation, and that's a rarity.
And how do you expect people like me, born in, to talk about our childhood, or our upbringing, or anything in our live without mentioning that organization?
Also, yes, the experience in the JWs was a traumatic one.
May I ask, does it bother you? Why are you questioning it? Is that a bad thing? And why does it have to be about being damaged? And even if it is, people who have been submitted to a traumatic experience deserve their time and space to deal with it, so is there a problem with that?
