I was not born into the Witness regime, but my parents became JW's when I was almost a teen. I had my ups and downs with the religion, but was never a religious person, finding it difficult to believe in a God, a spirit being who cared for me... I was DF'd when I was 20, and reinstated because I wanted to be with my family. After all, who else is there, right??????? I married a man who is not a witness, we have 3 children, and are very happily, not in the truth. I walked away, 10 years ago, and have never looked back.
