My name is Cliff (‘Fifth’), 29,  I am a 2nd generation Jehovah’s Witness from California, USA. In this article, I share my experience within the Watchtower organization.

I was officially disfellowshipped this year, April 2016. During that time, I began doing independent research about the organization. By June 2016 I was fully awake to the truth about ‘The Truth.’

In the following video I highlight a bit of my background as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses, the numerous ‘privileges’ that I had within the organization, and the events that led to my eventual departure, both physically and mentally.

My aim in making this video is to share my personal story in the hopes of helping others who may find themselves in a similar situation, to help them realize that they are not alone in this conflict. It is my sincere hope that this video is useful to somebody.
