Me’s Story: My Child is a JW

This is the personal and true account of Me (A pseudonym) from United Kingdom. She is not a Jehovah’s Witness and made this submission on July 28, 2021 at 11:40 am by completing the survey on the web page, Tell Your Story.

I am not a Jehovah’s Witness

No one I know studying with Jehovah’s Witnesses. My Child is a practicing Jehovah’s Witness. I am not concerned about their welfare.

To Be Shunned

I think long-term shunning has a detrimental effect on a person’s emotional, mental and/or physical well-being.

I am being shunned by Parent(s), Child(ren), Aunt(s), Uncle(s), Cousin(s), Other relative(s), Best Friend/Close Friend(s), Congregation Friend(s), Others.

I disagree with Jehovah’s Witnesses’ practice of shunning.

Jehovah’s Witnesses’ practice of shunning has pushed me to attempt suicide.

I would like Jehovah’s Witnesses to end shunning.

I find it hypocritical that they once condemned the Catholic Church of the same practice. They now practice it because they are running scared.

Final Comments

I’m not Disassociated or Disfellowshipped but I am shunned for leaving.

Thanks for reading,
