  • Do you feel left out? What things do you have in common? Do you preach to them and try to convert them? I thought the only freinds a JW can have is ones that are JW

  • i love my friends, we grew up together. i never feel left out. We have in common that we are all moms, women and love Tim McGraw, lol. We've talked about religion, but we're adults so we can have discussions and not kill eachother, lol. I dont try to convert them. they've asked questions and i've answered, but thats it. We are allowed to have friends no one controls us. We do have to be careful of who we are friends with, my catholic friends are morally sound imo. they are sweet and kind and considerate. They dont invite me to xmas functions because they know how i feel so they respect me that way. I wont be friends with someone that is a stripper that does crack for example because i dont want that kind of influence around me and my family.

  • well since they are my friends, they dont care what i believe...at first they just asked questions on what i believe etc...but since im a good person (dont drink, dont do drugs, dont smoke, dont steel, dont party etc) they like hanging around me..i just dont mention my beliefs to their children, and they dont mention theirs to my child.
