Made rebloggable by request (:
haha I love how the anonymous person suggests that “creativity & individualism is slaughtered in this religion”…
I am one of Jehovah’s Witnesses…
Yes it’s true, I am not perfect. I have many flaws, and struggle with my actions & where my priorities are at times but regardless I am still a Christian and I love my God.
*AND just in case you didn’t already know: I am an individual. I stand out. I am an artist and I thrive on creativity of my own as well as others in my congregation. In no way shape or form is that being “slaughtered” by my religion. In fact I owe my talents and love for music, dance, art & photography to Jehovah. Without him, the ORIGINAL creator I wouldn’t have these gifts.
Educate yourselves people. It’s silly to assume what you don’t know. The person who replied to the anonymous question did an excellent job explaining our faith! #proud #jw
Expecting to much?!
Growing up a JW, I’ve noticed that JWs expect so much from other JWs. When one little “flaw” is shown, a piercing, a tattoo, a haircut, haircolor, hair style, nail polish color, music taste, hobbies, taste in movies, whatever, etc, they’re immediately looked down upon, talked about, stereo-typed. Then people look at me weird because I don’t worry about stuff like that. I got my own issues to worry about than to worry about someone else. Stop judging and pointing fingers, it’s not gonna get you anywhere. We’re taught not to judge, yet we tend to expect so much from another JW. Every single person has their own personality, whether you practice the same religion or not.
