OPP: Tell Parents I'm Pagan
Yi! In the past two years I have had a lot of life changes my parents got divorced (it was not pretty) changed jobs, fell in love, lost loved ones... it has been years of extreme highs and extreme lows. In the past year especially I have started to research my heritage especially that of my Celtic and Nordic ancestary. After a lot of soul searching I have become pagan and started following this path, I am completely happy and for once at peace with my life, my girlfriend is pagan as well. My problem is how would I breech this subject with my traditional Christian family, though they are not judgmental they are far from open minded and I am in a real jam because I want to be outspoken everyone from coworkers to friends know already and I want to tell my family so much but I don't know how to breech the subject and I don't want to lose my family in any way.
Slacker says it is hard to tell your parents something when they are religious. His family is Catholic and he thinks his family would be mad. He doesn’t think they will disown him. He thinks Lee just doesn’t want to add to the ever growing problems in the past years. Slacker would test the waters first and tell the family he is thinking about converting.
Steve says at a certain age you would think he can tell them anything. He doesn’t understand because he lost his parents at a young age.He thinks Lee should just do it like a band-aid and just tell them.
How should Lee tell his family about his new beliefs?
