I just wanted to express a sincere thanks for the amazing community of friends we have built up thanks to sites like this.
The genuine people we can now call TRUE FRIENDS is outstanding.
To all those who are newly awakening, or are just starting to contemplate a life outside of the JW bubble, please be reassured that you will indeed make good friends if you put yourself out there.
True,not every ex-Jw will be an instant friend. You will not click with everyone. But as with life in general, if you put in the effort, a new circle of genuine friends exist out there!
Attend meet ups, join FB groups, show sincere interest in others, and things will work out so well. In fact, you will look back at the so called friends you had while IN the religion, and shake your head in wonderment as to how shallow or superficial and conditional those bonds were.
