Was a Jehovahs' Witness, was baptised at 16. 2005 was my new beginning, I left the organisation for various reasons - the obvious being they were not the truth. I am free - truly free of their hold, their beliefs. I believe in God, I am a spiritually being, I'm not aligned nor ever will be aligned with any religion or organisation again. I am no longer bound by dos' and don'ts. I no longer try impress men/God/organisation. The family that have chosen to stay in the faith shun me. I don't feel bitter / angrey, I know that they are blind and I respect their wishes by not contacting them. I pray for their release!
