I was raised in a Catholic family and I turned to wicca, What’s the best way to tell them that I am?? I kept many secrets before and they don’t trust me already. Please Help!! They are bound to find out and I don’t want to run away!!!
Are you living at your parent’s house? How old are you?
Start out telling them that you are reading about different religions. Then bring up Wicca and tell them what you have read about Wicca. Then later tell them you are practicing Wicca.
Step by step.
Speak respectfully to them, don’t tell them they are wrong. or that you are better than them.
First off, I would like to caution anyone who claims that another person (or group of people) is/are ignorant based solely on their religious beliefs (i.e. – that they are Catholic/ Protestant/ Hindu/ Jewish/ Muslim/ Buddhist, etc.) This is an antiquated and intolerant way of thinking that will not get one very far in today’s world. However, I am not going to judge you based on the fact that you called your parents ignorant, as I don’t know them, and therefore, I have no way whatsoever of knowing if that statement is true or false. With that said, there is no standard way of revealing this sort of information to one’s parents. Every parent will react in a different manner when presented with this sort of revelation. My advice would be to come out straight to them and tell them that you are an adherent of Wicca. Either that, or, if at all possible– try to reveal it slowly to them by telling them your individual beliefs. Then, later on, they might not be as shocked to learn that you are Wiccan. If your parents are still supporting you (money, tuition, food, clothing, etc.) you will need to be especially careful, lest they cut you off. I hope this helps, and good luck!
If you are still living under there roof then I would suggest that you don’t. Also what exactly makes them ignorant? If you decide to tell them that you are a Wiccan you better be ready to tell them why. Saying you want to be Wiccan so you can cast spells or as a way of rebelling are not good reasons.
<:<:What is the best way to confess to ignorant Catholic parents that you’re Wiccan? I was raised in a Catholic family and I turned to wicca, What’s the best way to tell them that I am?? >:>:
If you’re still living with them, you should probably continue keeping it to yourself.
By the way, the fact your parents are Catholic does not constitute self-evident proof that they’re ignorant.
<:<: I kept many secrets before and they don’t trust me already.>:>:
That’s not their fault. If you didn’t give them reason to suspect anything, by keeping secrets, their ":guard": wouldn’t be up. You can’t blame your parents for that.
<:<:Please Help!! They are bound to find out and I don’t want to run away!!!>:>:
You don’t have to run away.
The best way is to be upfront and speak from the heart. Ie. I need to talk to you guys about something..’etc etc’. If they love you, they will accept it.
I personally am not religious but have nothing against anyone as long as they do not push their views onto others. Do not be ashamed, you are you!!! 🙂
the best way to to come prepared like a lawyer to an important case.
come with books and information that demonstrates how your new religion isn’t in any way devil worship.
inform them of the tenets of your faith. ":An ye harm none, do as thou will":
explain to them why you no longer believe in Catholicism and why you believe Wicca to be correct.
and if they refuse to listen simply turn around and walk away, even if you are mid-sentence.
You don’t have to tell them. Your faith is your faith. I planned to keep my parents in the dark about it, but then my mother was a ***** and read my diary. But I’m over that now…….kinda.
No matter the religion, calling others ignorant is disrespectful, especially parents that house, clothe and feed you.
i don’t talk about what i believe wilt my parents. i don’t care what they think i just don’t like to talk to them. sometimes its better not to say any thing why fight about it. they have there life i have mine.
Maybe stop treating them like they’re ignorant subhumans and treat them like your parents? Just talk to them.
