The hypocrisy of the JWs and how they all disappeared on Thanksgiving and other holidays was an early wakeup call for me.
Yes, it was a Thanksgiving holiday many years ago when I was all alone looking at four walls when this happened..Mind you, I could have been with my Catholic family enjoying a wonderful meal. I felt like an idiot in my needless, self-imposed isolation and felt like some nut in the hills fighting a private war.
I realized the Witnesses just wanted to separate me from my non-JW family (who are the only people who really care about me).. When I began my ‘fade’ years later, I made sure I reconnected with all my family and relatives before it was too late. This was priceless and probably the most important thing I did besides holding on to my full time job until retirement.👍🏻
