Hi everyone, I'm new here......basically, I found this website a couple of weeks ago when I was in dire need of some like-minded souls who had felt screwed up about the JW's. From about the age of four/five, my parents and I were involved in the organisation, and all three of us are stil messed up because of it.....we are no longer involved in it, but it took quite a few years before my parents found the strength to leave. To begin with, I was quite a zealous JW, was baptised at twelve and disfellowshipped at fourteen, because as I got older I began to grow ''weak in the Truth'' as people so kindly described me! Many things prompted me to start thinking, really thinking about the true nature of the organisation, one example being that when a wonderful JW family friend passed away, another 'friend' made the comment that it was the best thing that could have happened as she was not strong in the Truth..... (what a load of s*t!!!
I have since made some brilliant 'worldly' friends who are better people then the whole lot of them put together........! Anyways, sorry if I've been rambling, feel free to reply!
