just found out i'm pregnant about a month in.
i've been "fading" for about 2 years now and had everything nearly exactly how i wanted.
i'm still able to keep in contact with all my family just as long as the never found out about the boyfriend and the plan to never go back.

so its no surprise to most of the people here, but i stretch my earlobes.. and i just reached sort of a big milestone, for me i guess.. i made it to an inch.. that's 25 mm, for you crazy not americans stuck on the metric system.. and considering the original hole was exactly 1 mm in diameter, i just think its cool i increased the size by 25 times.. now if only i could stretch my bank account.. .

i ask this because as a jw, you are programmed to think your only purpose is to preach the good news of the kingdom....period.
but more and more, i've noticed in my own life a strong pull toward something i won't elaborate on, but it has me thinking that maybe we really do each have a particular purpose and it's up to us to discover what it is.
i know i'm kind of new to the forum, but please let me know if any of you have experienced this same kind of unusually strong pull toward something you can't fully explain.

ok this is kinda twisted.. a brother in my old hall, used to always complain that he got the 'bad' bible readings.. for instance, he got this weeks reading - it include jer 5:8.. who really wants to say that from the stage?.
i got thinking, how many times does the wts have us read that verse when we are in jeremiah?.
out of the 5 times we have read jeremiah in the last 20 years, 3 of those the wts had some poor shmuck of a brother reading 5:8..

i heard it said recently on this forum that there was no such thing now as disfellowshipping or disassociating.
you are either a jw or not... is this correct?
and how much should i read into the thing about 'not talking to the inactive' now, as per advice given at the latest assembly?

being the paranoid, inactive, with alot of family and "friends" still in the org.
i'm sure it's been discussed before but i don't recall reading on that topic here on jwd.
i know that fear prevented me from posting while i was exiting as an elder.

or, is it completely out of the question, and you know for sure that this life is it, and there is nothing else after.. maybe you believe that there is a possibility of eternal life, but you don't qualify..

an elder friend just asked me the most simple question.. "if you had all the power, would you still let the world be like this?"..
i answered "of course not".. then he just said "hmmm"..

no boundaries, but still differenet speaking languages, and different looking people and different customs, but no boundaries so you could find work anywhere and have the same privileges than you would have in your own country.. i'd definitely move where it's warmer.
that wouldn't be hard to find.... .
