When it comes to me venting, I have something on my mind that needs to be written and put of mind before I drive myself crazy and not sleep well the same or following night. Nothing has happened between me and my friends. Something did come into mind regarding a neighbor across the hall from me. I am a Seventh-day Adventist and proud to be one. We have a Jehovah’s Witness in our building now. She is a nice person but when it comes to my beliefs in Jehovah’s Witnesses, I am questioning my vulnerability as a person. My surrogate mom, a fine and sweet woman, is concerned about me having association with this other person because I am yet not strong spiritually. She has cautioned me to be careful and tread carefully. I promise her I would no doubt. Anyway, studying with my neighbor, I have noticed already things that I do not agree with as far as the Bible they use is concerned and what they study. I was even told by this neighbor — I do not know if I was being fooled to believe in what was said or the fact that it is true — that Jehovah’s Witnesses and the Seventh-day Adventists used to be united, but my heart is saying that I was fooled. After my surrogate mom and I were talking about my association with my neighbor beyond neighbor to neighbor that is not religious, I got to thinking that I am going to have to walk away from this neighbor for a while in regards to studying the Bible with her. I do not need anymore disappointments in my life anymore and I need to stay with what I already believe regarding Biblical studies and the Adventists. I love my church and my church family and I am not going to be pushed into a conversion I do not feel comfortable converting to. I have, in the past, noticed that Jehovah’s Witnesses can be pushy people in converting others into their faith. I will NOT be hurt again!

As far as my beliefs are…I will not accept any comments that are hurtful from anyone. I feel that this entry is for my friends only and considered private in a way. I know, those DD friends who are on my friends list will not hurt me in words that will later cause troubles. I just had to vent a bit and say what I felt, that’s all. I CAN NOT go to bed feeling down and sleep is found restless and not meaningful.
