How can I tell them I'm Wiccan? - March 29th 2011, 04:54 AM

My mom already knows that I've studied it and that I, and I quote, "have an unhealthy interest in the damned occult!" end quote. My dad has recently gone over to Christianity, and my mom and sister are real bible thumpers.

I have no problem with the Christian God-it's his fan club I can't stand! How can I tell my family without this pulling my mom sister and I apart?

Stalked by the Penguins since 2007

Why so serious darling? We are all mad here.

Sometimes you have to take the hard route. You know what you are and what you believe. It may hurt for a while to them but it will get better as the time goes past.

Hey there,

You just need to be honest with them. They may not like the road you've chosen as far as religion goes, but you're still a family. They might be mad first, but they won't be forever. Explain to them your beliefs and why you believe what you believe. Then explain to them that you still love them and you don't want this to affect your relationship with them. Don't let it, either. Keep religion separate from family. This should help minimize conflict.
