Why is it so hurtful to be shunned? Why object to it?
Snugglebunny: So if you're going to leave the JW's, then you MUST have another social life to fall back on, one that has nothing to do with JW's. Get that organised before the axe falls. Join a club, do voluntary work, go to the gym, anything to get you with people.
Very wise advice for all. Yes, forming a life outside of the witness goldfish bowl is essential.
