I don't think I caused very much harm when I left. I was a congregational outcast. People probably looked around and said, "Hey, that smear is gone!" My leaving caused harm to a couple of elders. One, who previously studied with me, came to the door and "lovingly" reminded me of all the great times we had out in Service (I really don't remember any good times.) He told me he loved me. Whenever another man gets emotional and tells me he loves me, it makes me sick to my stomach.
The other almost burst into tears on my one and only shepharding call when I told him I didn't want to be an unbaptized publisher anymore.
Other than that, I don't think anyone really noticed I was gone. Maybe except that sister who had a crush on me. I should have @#$%ed her in the ass.
