FORMER2FREE- VERY nice to have you here my friend . I've chatted with your dad & mom on the phone before and consider them dear, dear people. I live out in Northern California and some day me and my wife would like to meet them, and you as well !
I was born & raised in it like yourself - exited at age 44 almost 15 years ago. Believe me after you exit the JW's- " the light gets brighter and brighter " - no pun intended, well maybe a little bit. But my dad was a well known elder out here, my older brother was in Bethel 8 years, I'm the only one out of 4 siblings that escaped the WT asylum. Especially when I started seeing it was lunatics running the asylum.
Hang in there. It will be a challenge with your in laws and wife & kids. A little word of caution just show them love and don't try to lay all these things you've learned about the WT Society on them- because due to still being under the influence of mind control they won't understand and will get angry, thus escalating tensions needlessly. I'm sure others have mentioned this on this thread, I haven't read all 10 pages yet word for word. But hey man !
Welcome ! And keep on educating yourself and researching the Internet to verify that what you are feeling is true within yourself. Let yourself feel angry, sad, or however you need to vent, we are here as a support for you. Been there, done this - many of us have here. Take care buddy, Peace out, Mr. Flipper My wife Mrs. Flipper says " hi " as well !
