Family Ties

Accidentely my mum found out about me being wiccan. I think it frightens her and i find it difficlut to talk to her about and I don’t think she will ever except me for it. My friend is the same as she is christian and knows. This makes me really sad as my friend recently said something really hurtful to me. Is there a way I can get round this? Please help.

Hello there my dear,
I am glad to hear that you have a genuine interest in the faith… but also saddened to hear that your family is being so intolerant of something they very obviously do not fully understand….
Unfortunately, so people are just bull headed and stubborn (and maybe more than a little bigoted) in that manner and no matter what you do, they have their beliefs – which includes the “fact” that they are right – and nothing you say or do is ever going to change that….
For others, it is a matter of understanding and education. Their upbringing and previous experiences have taught them one thing… and that one thing may be quite far from anything resembling the truth. And so what they really need is someone to sit them down and explain the way things really are to them….
For your sake and your sanity, we will hope that your family fall into the latter category of the two….
Perhaps showing them the tenants of the Witches’ Rede will help them to understand that what they envision as witchcraft and the modern day reality of the faith are two very different things. That you are not wanting to wear a black pointy hat or ride a broomstick or sacrifice babies to the devil… or anything else of that sort….
Instead, you have a interest in a religion whose core belief is that you should harm no other… which is certainly something I think that the world could use a lot more of these days….
