Hey all ... have not been here in years. Things look different!!!
I am just now realizing how much this religion f***ed me up! I mean BIG TIME. I have been going to a therapist as I'm working through getting out of a bad marriage and the more I go the more it comes out that I am who I am, and got into the situations I got into because of the horrible ABUSE ... yes ... ABUSE I endured as a child.
If you were JW child ... you were ABUSED. In the most haneous emotional way possible. We were taught that everything was BAD, we were BAD if we fell short we would DIE if we fell short. Let's get MARRIED young ... when we are stupid and don't know any better so we can have SEX. Ya know ... cause you can't even touch yourself there or you'll DIE! OH .. or you have the other STELLAR option of pounding on doors 90 hours a month.
ME in 1990: I'm gonna quit college because I don't see the system lasting long enough for me to benifit from it.
ME in 2005: DOH!!!!!!!
I haven't even started. Ya know!!!!!!
