Hello, thanks ! Ah yes, my choice of pic. It's hearty flower yet small, keeps on blooming ๐Ÿ˜
Well, yes you could say I'm PIMO. I'm inactive you could say. I just moved into my area last July so haven't had the opportunity to actually meet anyone. The Cong before that I was only in for 2.5 yr & my previous Cong I was in for 20+ yrs. It was very clicky.
Raising 4 kids in the "truth" kept me busy.
I'm finding it harder & harder daily to identify as a JW. To me, being known as a JW seems to represent the organization & not Jehovah God.
As I mentioned in an early comment, the rabbit hole is very deep ๐Ÿ˜ฌ
I'm glad I found this group too ๐Ÿ˜Š

To JW's if you find something wrong with the org, then "you are taking it out on Jehovah," because somehome finding something wrong with imperfect men, means you are rejecting God. I guess I missed the Memo that the organization couldn't make mistakes and that the GB are already perfect and have begun ruling from heaven! Those bodies they are using they just materialized, it's their avatars.

I hear ya! I had a test run this week when not ONCE but TWICE I was asked by new neighbors "What Church do you guys attend?". Uhhhh I fumbled my words pretty badly ๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™€๏ธ. I was nervous but I think I said something along the lines of "Umm well I am a Jehovah's Witness but I have kind of graduated from that to simply a follower of Jehovah and Jesus and the Bible but I do sometimes still attend Zoom Bible study meetings with the Organization... with my camera off...because I can't go in person. Because I haven't take the clot shot and I also because I enjoy breathing oxygen instead of wearing a rag on my face....and.....and....". Ok...I didn't say the bold part. Just yet. Baby steps. Anyway...it was SUPER awkward and I don't think I made any friends there. So there's that ๐Ÿ˜. Hopefully it will get easier lol!

Hahaha , thank you for sharing! I think I would have answered very similar to how you did haha Most people know how I feel about the jabs, Iโ€™m very vocal which has been getting me in trouble on fb with other witnesses ๐Ÿ˜ฌ I enjoy fresh air too!
Your absolutely right, it will take baby steps. I was having a conversation with a friend today, she said sheโ€™s not part of the inner circle crowd. I told her I donโ€™t need any inner circle I Am my own circle lol (not afraid to speak up ๐Ÿ˜‰).
