The Truth about “The Truth”: Jehovah’s Witness Face Palm Moments
Daily life struggles with questions, emotions, and frustration, with THE TRUTH about The so-called “Truth” of Jehovah’s Witnesses.
Wanting to desperately understand the previous life he led as a JDub, while under their mind control, as well as prepare myself for the continued effect the indoctrination will have on my significant other’s children, who are still kind of sort of “in,” I began searching for support online. After many failed attempts finding anything written with the loved one of an Ex-JW in mind, I found myself looking at a bunch of facts and research that made little sense to me. It is my hope that this blog will be somewhat of an Understanding Jehovah’s Witness for Dummies and help other significant others, wives, husbands, girlfriends, boyfriends, and fiancés out there struggling to find answers, provide a safe place for them learn, as well as help to build general awareness.
There are two sections to this site.
1. FACE PALM MOMENTS
These are typically triggered by things such as a FB post I saw on an Ex-JDub support group, a situation or struggle that occurred in our daily lives or lives of a loved one, or the moment I find myself teaching even simple tasks or motions that we (non JDubs) do on a daily or yearly basis, like filling Christmas stocking, making a toast, or wrapping birthday presents, all of which are completely foreign to them.
These questions, concerns, or emotional venting will also be followed by an explanation as to why these things happen. Clint, who has done years and years of research and been officially “out” since 2012, will attempt to explain, teach and help make sense of these moments. We both feel strongly about making these moments public in hopes they will help others.
2. JW.ORG FAQ
In addition to taking the time to respond to questions about why Jehovah’s Witnesses believe the way they do, and why they behave the way they behave sometimes, we will also be taking periodic “Frequently Asked Questions” from their website (www.jw.org) and deconstructing them. If you have anything that you would like addressed please comment or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
