Leaving the Witnesses has to be the hardest thing in the world to do. I was in the Organization for all of my life. I was home-schooled. I was robbed of my child-hood and my future. Its hard for me to find my legs and I tend to be different in my reactions and actions from the people I know. Normality. Thats unknown to me. The hurt is profound and unexpressful. My dad came out with me. I love that man but I fear he feels guilt because of raising me as a Witness. My relationships I establish are a reflection of the religion. They arent healthy. I know I need help but what therapist could possibly relate or understand? I need my footing.
