I was bought up a Jehovah’s Witness. I was disfellowshipped twice, I got reinstated after only four months, and then disfellowshipped again 6 months later. My family doesn’t speak to me and I’ve been out of the organisation since 1993.
I’ve had two family members commit suicide and I believe one of the main factors was the Jehovah’s Witness organisations.
I had to start over from scratch at the age of 23 as a Ex Jehovah’s Witness. All the people I looked up to, all the people that gave me leadership and my best and dearest friends, were lost and I couldn’t communicate with them.
Honestly, I do not believe I have a chip on my shoulder, however the influence this organisation has on people has to be spoken about. Ironically, they believe that the world will turn on them one-day, who knows, this could be the beginning.
If you are a Ex Jehovah’s Witness feel free to contact me if you would like an interview.
