    Why bless your heart, sister soandso! That YOU are concerned about my spiritual health when (offer up a pitying, condescending look) . . . well, just bless your heart for asking! You know, I have heard that Brother Paul is a great listener when one is struggling in matters of spiritual health. Would you like me to arrange for you to meet him?

    @onager ahaha

    when you start humming you can use the following daft punk song which fits perfectly


    "Currently I am suffering from ADD ........Acute Doctrinal Distress .........How do you measure your spiritual health?'"

    I liked onager's advise. A little OM will scatter them like Raid to cockroaches!

    Really though, what a question? My answer was that my spirituality was a private matter. I did tell my aunt however, that I felt better and more at peace than I had ever felt. She suggested I take my newfound 'confidence' and return to the meetings. I told her that that would be like going backwards....didn't sit too well with her....never spoke to me again after that.

    One sister visiting our hall asked how I was doing?

    I said yeah great thanks...And you?

    She replies..Fine thank you

    and then those immortal words come spewing out..AND HOWS YOUR SPIRITUAL HEALTH?

    I just looked at her thinking wtf. But my Christian calmness held me back. I breathed in, bit my tongue and said

    'yeah fine thank you'.

    Arrrrrggghhhhh 😠😣

    Spirituality equal JW tasks, nothing more. How many hoops are you willing to jump through to prove your loyalty to a man made organization. Sad!

    A. " I've found that like ones ego, their "spiritual health" is only as good, or as bad as they imagine it to be. Since we're asking personal questions, how's yours doing these days ?"

    "How is your spiritual health?" = "how much witness activity are you engaged in. It's all about external appearances"
