How do you deside?

When I was 3 years old my mother starting studying the bible with some strange people. At the age of 5 she married my step father, he was part of that religion. I really did not understand it until I was older and it messed me up thinking wise. I never got to celebrate christmas or my birthdays among many other things. Things were very hard for me until I met Jay at work and I knew I loved him. I Left that religion and now my family does not talk to me. They are Jehovah what do I do stay with the man that I love that gave me a real x-mas and makes me feel amazing about my self or do I go back to my family my little sister and my brothers (3) and my mother and Step father who I love very much?????

I think you need to do what is right for you as a whole person. The answers lie in your heart. You are the only person in the world who truely knows what you want and wish for deep inside. I wish you luck as you search your heart for the answer you seek.

Welcome to the blogs also.

I've spent my whole life, since 5 yrs old, trying to understand the whole concepot of religions. I've researched and studied just about every belief system on earth and I'm still convinced that just being what I am has been my wisest choice.

I say, do what you want to do and not what everyone else wants you to be. If they don't talk to you anymore, it's their problem, pure and simple. Don't make it your problem.

I think the answer is you have both. I read this book a few months ago about hwo to wittiness to the Jehovah wittiness. It was a really good book and I got it because my best friend joined the Jehovah wittiness and he changed. If you want to tlk about it email me or just go out and get the book

Your eyes are open, and you feel good about yourself and who you are.

Religion often has a power over people that can make them turn against even their own family. One of the key parts of many religions is that the religion, or the god, is more important than the people themselves. That's how they get people to turn on each other. In some parts of the world, it's still common to kill or torture people because they don't believe in the official religion. The wars that are going on now, and have been going on for a thousand years, will only go away when religion goes away.

Believe in yourself, in those you care about, in love. You know what feels right and what doesn't.

The people you want to see are trapped. They can't see where they are. Try to understand that they don't know that they're trapped, and will try to pull you in with them. It's an addiction...someone smiles and says "here just try some of this, you'll be fine".

So be careful, remember that many people who claim they're trying to "show you" something good, are really trying to trick you...most probably don't know they are! Believe in yourself, and you really will be fine.
