My name is … Cael. I started this blog using the name, Calum. It’s the name I’ve used in certain nefarious business transactions. It’s also the name I was to be given by my parents until a few weeks before my birth when they changed their minds. But, I’ve decided that honesty is the best policy, so here I am, this is me, Cael.
There are a few things I will tell you about myself: I live in Australia, I was raised as a Jehovah’s Witness, and now I fight passionately to see my loved ones freed from cult indoctrination. It’s not easy being shunned by your whole family. That kind of thing sticks with you. Still, this is not the strangest thing about my life, and so I’ve started this blog as a means by which to chronicle everything that happened to lead me here.
How did it come to this? How did a Jehovah’s Witness end up in the gutter, with scarcely the desire to cling to life? I’m going to tell you. I’m going to tell you all of it.
This is my story.
