I was rasied as a Witness but left of my own volition twelve years ago. In some ways it was easier for me because I wasn't married and had no children. I moved from California to New England and made my break. Of course, like everyone who leaves the organization, I suffered, mostly from sheer naivette. I had no knowledge of the world or how to interact in it. The past twelve years have been a learning curve of mamoth purportions! I have recently started a website (who hasn't...LOL) called "Jehovahs Witnesses - Life Outside of the Ark" http://outsidetheark.googlepages.com/home . The site is designed to give those Witnesses who are questioning their faith a place to go for support and practical advice. The site is in its infancy and still requires a lot of work but I hope that it will be a help to some.
