I was not raised as a Witness i started studying wehn i was 18 and really was not very good at the lifestyle anyways. I beleived in the doctrines but was never regular in field service and gave 2 talks in the many years i was active.I never really fit in but i did meet a few rare great people but most were very strange and on anitidepressants and i could never understand them.I would generally leave meetings totally pissed off after dealing with such strange people and eventualy left for a few years and then came back never with any enthusiasm whatsoever.Live in San Diego,Ca near the beach and starting to break away form the doctrines ive been taught.
