Does ?Love Never Fail??
Is it necessary to shun those who shun us? Would if be right to do that?
It has been over three years since my family and I left the borg.
Just briefly ?.I had the usual bouts of crying., doubting myself.?.usual ?cult withdrawal? symptoms, as I?m sure many here can relate to.
I had the mind set that I would not let them hurt me, therefore I would likely avoid any dubs should I come into contact with any.; depending who they were I would likely ignore them as they would me.
Recently a JW who was the only person to shun me publicly, and quite obviously, commited suicide last week.
This has made me think again.
I feel that JW?s actually lead quite a depressing existence, I knew many who were stressed and on anti-depressants or claimed to have ME.
Now?three years on , I am very happy, happier than I?ve ever been in my life.
I feel only sadness, and sorry for the active, believing JW?s.
I wish that in some way?s I had made my exit different, I know I can?t change anything.
I guess my contented feeling (which one certainly doesn?t have whilst exiting) is making me see the JW v Ex- JW?s in a whole new light.
Thanks for listening! And sorry for rambling??..
