I've never before seen my mother talk with so much hate in her voice and words.
When we were leaving my grandmother was just staring forward and crying.
It's hard to explain how I feel right now, but both Mrs. Kwin and myself know we made the right decision.
Darn, I feel real sad for you all. I can totally relate to the intense feelings this situation brings, my own mom cried her eyes up in from of me when I finally told her I know longer believed it was the truth, that was hard to deal with, the look of despair on her face I'll never forget. I didnt have to cope with how my gran felt since I was never allowed to see her again so she heard about my departure from the elders rather than me. I dont know what to say except stand your ground, cry it out if you have too or even sidetrack and just tell them you need a little space to think things through.
There is no easy way out of that organisation, thinking of ya
(PS, 7 years later my 2nd generation JW mom left the religion, my gran died a faithful JW though, theres good and bad, keep your chin up and hope for the good)
