Hey, I'm new. Heard there's sandwiches here
I think there's a line in Shakespeare that goes '...since brevity is the soul of wit, I'll be brief..' but likely just end up rambling. I'll try to give the broad strokes here. Canadian, early 40s now and once was a line toe'ing , true believin', door knockin' faithful JW up until about 35 yrs of age. I was a poster boy well on the way up the ranks and devoted my life and energy to this religion. Served in many capacities of responsibility. Also, I was married 15 yrs to a lovely woman (also JW) which ended as a casualty to my conscientious decision to leave the faith. This also extended of course to the only social circles that I had at the time and my large family who are lifers to the cause. Went through a lot of cognitive dissonance and embraced a lot of reading and research about my own religion and the nature of belief. I now consider myself an atheist through and through. A Skeptic at heart. I have agency and true freedom of thought and belief, should I choose it. Been listening to the TTA and just discovered this lovely forum. Looking forward to engaging with you all. Cheers!
