Well, I guess I'll start by saying I was raised Pagan, with particular focus on Novus Spiritus.(Google it, there's WAY too much to explain here.)
So, I already believed in quite a few things that related to Wicca before I even really began studying it. I started studying it a few months ago
and I'll admit that at the time I was only doing it to help one friend and because a guy that I was talking to was constantly trying to get me
to change to the Wiccan path. Despite those things I found that many of the Wiccan beliefs rang true to me. Especially those about magick,
I had already been working with it a bit but I had no guidance so I was too afraid to try anything big. The more I read about Wicca the more I liked it.
So on the 6th of May I decided that I was going to put myself through a sort of trial and if at the end of it (June 6th) I still wanted to practice Wicca
I would "come out of the broom closet" to my friends and family. My family are the ones I'm worried about, many of them have never accepted my mom and I being Pagan and
now I'm going to come out as a Wiccan/Pagan/Witch. The only one that's likely to understand at all is my mother
(the novus spiritus one) and even she doesn't believe in rituals and magick. I'm just afraid they're going to think I'm crazy or that I'm going to Hell. (Some of them are already
trying to "save" me and my mom from our Pagan ways.)
Would it be better to just keep it to myself as far as my family is concerned?
