I am who I am. As I’ve left the religion I’ve known my entire life, I find myself being confident enough to delve into the things that I’ve always been interested in - but warned against by the people in my previous religion. I personally don’t believe in the devil, just as I don’t believe in a god. So, things like modern witchcraft don’t bother me. And that’s exactly what I’m into.
It’s amazing how well we can repress our interests when we’re frightened and worried about how others will perceive us, or we’re worried about how god will punish us. But personally, I view all religions as cults. Please take that with a grain of salt. But it’s the truth of how I feel.
But now, without the worry of being damned to hell for eternity, I’ve discovered many interests, the strongest of which is modern-day witchcraft. I’ve discovered that I really want to try it, and I fully intend to delve into it as deeply as I can. I’ve been researching, and of course I have a lot more research to do before I start something, but I enjoy watching videos on YouTube. I’m learning a lot, and all of these things that others I used to have around me said to discourage me…100% of them weren’t true. There’s not even a measly 1% of what they said that was true.
It’s ignorance and the lack of desire to know that truth that is prevalent within Christian communities that makes it easy to hate them. I hated Christians while on the inside of a Christian community! But within their ignorance, it’s not just the desire to not know. I noticed very strongly that ignorance was desired, that it was taught. It was enforced. At least, in my religion it was.
I’m looking forward to starting witchcraft, and looking into it. I’m looking forward to learning more about it. One thing I’m very fascinated by are artifacts and talismans and more advanced magick, but of course, that would take me a while to be able to achieve.
I’m excited for my new ventures, and I feel more free now than I ever have in my entire life.
