How I Found the Truth

  • How I found the Truth
    I was raised by Witness parents from infancy. I developed several chronic debilitating illnesses around puberty, and felt stumbled by others causing me pain. I listened to the meetings from home for around 15 years, during which my faith steadily declined without any positive association. (Pr 18:1) I eventually hit rock bottom, having no reason to live and always wishing for death. I finally came to realize that Jehovah was never the source of my suffering, and that I had to return to Him with all of my strength if I ever wanted to be happy. It took many years to rebuild my body and my faith from square one, but Jehovah is helping me to endure with 'more than superabundantly beyond' any undeserved kindnesses that I could have imagined.

My Hobbies & Interests

  • My Interests
    I am a religious Cat-holic*. (Addicted to all things feline. Thanks, Toxoplasmosis!)
    Some of my favorite things include computers, technology, gaming, pixel and line art, storytelling, tiny homes, and the inconceivably vast cosmic universe.
  • My favorite books
    I particularly enjoy campy, humorous and satirical writing, comics such as Calvin and Hobbes are my favorite. Your typical Sci-fi/Space Opera fare: Dr Who, Hitchhiker's Guide, Star Trek, Star Wars, War of the Worlds. I'm also partial to stories of tragedy and hope about common people, Ruth is my favorite book in the scriptures. Aside from the Bible, I haven't read any physical books in many years. I don't have the focus or patience anymore, so audiobooks if at all.
  • My favorite music
    Background music, scores and soundtracks, especially classic video game composers. More traditional styles I prefer are alternative, ambient, downtempo, epic orchestral, techno, and world music. Kingdom dirges, Blue Man Group, John Williams, Jake Kaufman, Manami Matsumae, Hiroki Kikuta, Yoko Kanno.
  • My favorite movies
    Humor, tragedy, and science fiction. The Princess Bride, Cast Away, Jurassic Park, Star Wars.
  • My favorite quotes
    "You have two options. Either let this world drive you mad, or /choose/ to be insane." - Myew
    "Yes, I am just a little broken."
    "As you wish."

      Maybe we could add a thread here about what our baptism day was like. You mention it feels like a blur, and I know how that feels. It's good to reflect on.  I remember also feeling like I wanted to run from the little pen lol...skittish lamb.  Plus I later learned the newspaper was there and they got a photo of us baptismal candidates!
