A Former Jehovah’s Witness Shares Her #MeToo Story
“You’re Always Aware That You’re Seen as a Lesser Being”
I remember understanding that everything I knew, everybody I had known and loved who was in that congregation — which was basically all of my relatives — everyone I’d grown up with was now cut off from me. I was in their eyes, dead. There was a truck coming down the road and I’d just stepped out into the road and I was ready to just be done. But I’ll tell you, honest to God what saved me was those friends that they had warned against, those people in my life that they’d said I couldn’t be around, [who] were bad people because they weren’t JWs.
