Before and after becoming one of Jehovah’s Witnesses, I’ve never been a big fan of this tag. I don’t know about you, but to me, this represents something a bit different than just any ordinary tag. As brothers and sisters in the truth, we are to show ‘love to one another.’ and that means even to those that aren’t in the truth. What this tag constitutes to those that are not in the truth is a segregation that Jehovah’s Witnesses only can truly understand the post, leaving others to think that we think of ourselves as more superior of a comprehension. Where I’m trying to go with this is to have a different approach in thinking how others feel and how they view us. The media already has a grip of categorizing Jehovah’s Witnesses as fundamentalists or even cult-like and we must do our very best online and in person to show that we are ordinary people, living up to Bible principles and loving Jehovah, our God.
I haven’t been to a meeting in about 2 weeks. I am completely isolating myself from everyone and I don’t know why. I just can’t bring myself to get up and go. Something that’s really bothered me is the fact that none of the brothers or sisters have come to see how I’m doing. I’m not staying home for the attention or to have people come visit me, but I need that extra little push and it’s frustrating that while I need help they aren’t there for me :(
