I was a young adult when I joined the JW religion and my family and friends thought I lost my mind...Meanwhile I was only interested in end-time prophecy and had no idea I was getting involved with a high-control group or cult.
Over the years I had several rude awakenings and the real story became clear... But I resisted peer pressure and obeyed my instincts..I couldn’t care less about the religion’s silly titles of ‘pioneer’. 🙄..I knew I had to support myself and I held on to my job. I didn’t care if Witnesses didn’t ‘approve’ of me..I finally did a ‘fade’, reconnected with friends and family and am now retired.
