Jehova Witness doesn't participate daily on this Forum defending bolony of DFS,or writing department plagarized articles from different internet small not known sects ,man doctrines,and fakes

really JW,does't belong as salev to Watchtower Society, crowd of hipocrities and double faced uneducated spiritualy teachers,
having no idea,how to lead yourself, but sticking noce in the spiritual affairs of other people

I look forward to reading this. I also recommend "I'm Perfect, You're Doomed : Tales from a Jehovah's Witness Upbringing" by Kyria Abraham.

This book is hilarious. My daughter passed it along to me. We both felt that it was so close to our own experiences it might have we'll as been about us. It's a must for any who have escaped this cult and are coming to terms with the effects of a high control religion.

There are so many stories out there of people who were mistreated by this organization. They like to maintain a fiction of happy Jehovahs Witness families. But when you look deeper, it's all lies.

If nothing else, these stories show that if you were raised in this religion but don't believe in it, you are not alone. There is NOTHING wrong with you. There is life after you leave. It may be difficult, but freedom is worth it.

I am so glad that my children saw through the lies. I am happy to be out of this sham of a religion. My real life started when I left, I have never been happier. If you are young and unhappy with your life as s JW, know that it can be done. Don't throw your life away living in fear of Armageddon. This organization teaches you to not trust your own thoughts and feelings, they claim to be the only path to salvation. But its a dead end.
