1. getting baptized at 14 and not knowing what the heck i was 'signing' up for.
2. dating worthless, lazy, no work ethic, selfish 'brothers' who were supposedly approved all because they were baptized - but in the end - were a waste of my time and younger years in dating.. 3. subjecting my bf (back in the day) who was a non-jw to the whole jw experience!
i demanded that he study, i demanded that he change his religion in order to be with me, i made him sit with my parents and listened to them berate him (and myself) while they fed him all their haughty beliefs and requirements in order to date their jw daughter.

thus many witnesses feel sick, exhausted, tired, and essentially fight depression due to high expectations to " burn out " for the wt society.
have any of you experienced this while in the witnesses ?.

i've been thinking about getting rid of these books for a long time.
i have bound volumes starting with 1950s up through the early 2000's (not complete, but probably about 35-40 volumes).
i also have about 50-70+ books, including some from the 1950's (let god be true & others).
