I was basically raised in the Jehovah's Witness Organization. My parents started studying when I was around 6 years old and got baptized when I was around 7. Even at the very young age of 7, I always had the feeling this religion wasn't quite right. As I was growing up, questions, concerns, and wondering became stronger and more often. I got baptized around the age of 15 but mainly because of peer pressure from my parents/friends/elders and so forth. Anyone raised in the organization knows that if you aren't baptized by a certain age, there must be something wrong with you. I officially came out (after getting up the courage) around 2004. I have not regretted it since. I don't want this for my children.
