I'm a Polish guy who 'came into the truth' to seek refuge from the rebelious life of a teenager. It only worked for me for a year or two. Then I started blaming myself for not living up to the doctrine. Luckily I went to University and gained some perspective on things in life. I realized that there's something wrong with the doctrine and that I'm not such a loser after all. Vivat academia Vivant professores! LOL.
