Confession of a young girl from Kočevje about a strict life among Jehovah’s Witnesses

In a shocking confession, Naomi said they shouldn’t have celebrated birthdays, not New Year’s or other holidays. Once she wore shorts, the elders came home for a long talk. She could only hang out with those who were Jehovah’s Witnesses.

22-year-old Naomi from Kocevje shone at school, Zois Fellowship, the highest achievement in competitions. Just a week before graduation, her mother learned that she had a first boyfriend and that they already had sex. At the age of nineteen. She threw her out of the house, all the locals cut off her contact. He has been homeless ever since. She was helped by her friends and boyfriend’s family. He now lives in a dorm, studying pharmacy. Because there are still domestic pressures, she decided to speak out loud about everything. For all those who would like to break out of this faith but do not dare. When you step out, all your home, friends, neighbors, who are in Jehovah’s Witnesses, have to end contact with you. You are left alone, not sure where to start.

In a shocking confession, Naomi said they shouldn’t have celebrated birthdays, not New Year’s or other holidays. Once she wore shorts, the elders came home for a long talk. She could only hang out with those who were Jehovah’s Witnesses. When she received her first crush at the age of sixteen, her mother pulled her out of the classroom in the middle of class and wanted to drop her out of school. Education is not desirable for them. A woman is subordinate to a man. Sexual intercourse before marriage is not allowed if this happens, the young couple is publicly reminded in front of everyone – they must get married immediately, even if they are underage. Books are not allowed, you have to choose the “right” movies, music. They have complete control. Like in prison.
