    Hi all, I haven't posted here in a while, felt like a break and have been insanely busy, I don't think too much about JW stuff now, but wanted to pop in anyway. Have I missed anything recently?

    I am very happy, much to my surprise, I think it would be nice to go back to the end of 2013 and tell the depressed and lonely version of me that he can't even comprehend how good life could be. It turns out that the apostates weren't lying, there is life after the Watchtower after all! 

    Nice to see some new faces :) How are you all?

    Nice to see you here & best of all that you are free & happy!  Very encouraging for all of us.  What are you doing now ... working, family etc?   What one thing would you recommend to a newly awake jw?

    Hi Laika, I'm doing ok.

    I'm glad that you're not depressed and lonely anymore, and that life is good for you.

    Take care

    All the best

    Thanks for popping back in, and for the positive update.

    I too have become truly happy, and beaten depression, since leaving the Org.

    All the best for a wonderful future, and don't be a stranger here !

    Hey friends :) 

    Clarity, my advice would be to practice patience, you won't replace your support network overnight, and be open to people, my best friend now is gay, sadly I would have hated him 5 years ago. :/

    My job is going great! Things are still in the pits with family but I'm learning to live with it.

    Hi.  Welcome back.  You have to check out the cart with heart video.  Maybe someone can post the link. I cant on my phone. 

    I'm glad you found happiness.

    Sorry Laika, you've been irregular in posting here, so you've been marked as bad association. You can't tell from the fact that I'm posting or from the cheezy smile of my avatar, but I'm passively-aggressively ignoring you right now.

    Just kidding.

    Glad to hear that you're surprisingly happy and that your job is going great.

    Things are going well for me. My JW family is puzzled that I'm no longer attending meetings and I'm happier than I've ever been before in my life.
