Pagan at Heart

At peace with myself and the world… or at least headed that way

Heading Out (of the broom closet)

I’ve decided to come out of the broom closet to my parents. The thought of being out is very freeing, but the path to get to that point looks stressful and scary. In anticipation of the many questions that will come, I’m putting together a list of online resources that might help my parents sort things out (they like to do research). Here is what I have so far. If you have anything you’d like to suggest to me, please leave a comment!

    I looked at a couple of your links, and they seem very accurate and easy to understand. You’ll do fine 🙂 In the past year, I have come out only to my husband and a couple of friends. I intend to be open about being pagan, but only if the subject comes up. It’s really not anybody’s else’s business. I do think you should be open with your parents, though. Good luck, and let us know how it goes.
