When my husband and I left the Jehovah’s Witness faith, we realized that finding a new clientele of friends was a must. When most individuals leave this religion, it is with great distress because many are being shunned by their family and friends and they literally have no one that they can speak to. Therefore, if you are one of Jehovah’s Witnesses and you are thinking about leaving the organization, it is imperative that you realize those individuals in your circle will completely shut you out of their lives.
We simply connected with people in our business circle. In fact, during the time we left, I was self-employed, and thankfully I had stopped telling people about my religious affiliation. Therefore, I didn’t have to go through the bad experience one finds themselves in when trying to fit in with so-called “worldly” people.
It has been an interesting journey for us, but all-in-all we feel like we did the right thing in our lives by leaving and we have no regrets.
