You Know You're Starting To Wake Up When...
When the thought of going to the KH makes you want to sceam noooooooooo!
When you realise that engaging in JW chit chat makes you feel dumber.
When listening to talks makes you want to scream shut up shut up shut up.
You know you are fully awake and done with it all when....
you tell your entire family, it's 100% BS and you don't care if they shun you!!!
when your doing the public talk and you realise most of the audience are half asleep---and you wonder WTF your doing up there on the platform
when your doing the closing prayer and you just know you might as well talk to a brick.
...you completely forget that (insert day here) is a meeting day/night.
...you sleep in on the weekends instead of getting up to "meet the group".
...you no longer worry about researching for and preparing your "part" or "talk".
- When you finally throw away that stockpile of old Watchtowers you couldn't place over the years. Yes, we all had a closet full of mags!
Upon reading this quote, I instantly had a flashback to this hallway closet that I had in the house I grew up in that had all the Watchtowers, Awakes, and various other JW books. I swear those magazines always had this very distinctive smell to them. Does anyone else remember that?
Anyways, here are mine:
...When you start noticing that the answer to every f**king question or problem is "study more" or "pray more"
... When the treatment of disfellowshipped folks starts to bother you
....When you start praying for the "brother" giving the final prayer at the last day of the District Assembly to hurry the help!
your name is removed from the congregation bookstudy list
When everyone applause at a convention, you're sitting back thinking WTF.
You sing Happy birthday and still have your head and you go out a buy Xmas paper to wrap your Xmas gifts.
