I was raised around the JW-system from an early age (3+ years old). I'm a former Brooklyn Bethelite. I was as an elder for over a decade, but regret now any whom I unintentionally mistreated!(PLEASE FORGIVE ME FOR WHAT I DID NOT KNOW!) Now I've faded and I'm very happy outside the WT-structure! I finally have true peace! I can only hope others are able to get the large scales off their eyes and leave it behind and move on!
