Do You Have Any Indoctrinated Guilt Left Over?

    I'd say that the first couple of years, more than guilt, I had to just get used to celebrating birthdays and xmas and being involved politically,etc. I was doing them, but i didn't enjoy it. Now I've come to really participate pretty wholeheartedly in things and I have no guilt at all. I still have a conscience about things but it doesn't have to do with JW teachings. It's about my own convictions.

    It took me a while to feel comfortable with the idea that my family knew that I was celebrating and probably judging me-but I got over that too. Now if they visit me I'll let them know I have a xmas tree up and if they feel uncomfortable with that- they can stay at a hotel,etc. Some of my siblings have cut contact-others no...It's their choice, but i'm not adapting to appease them.

    The idea of a blood transfusion tends to give me the creeps . Not that i would die over it but still, all the junk science breaks you down and especially with those aids related deaths in the early 80s.
