For around the last year or so I have decided to be wiccan, it feels like the right path for me. My other half isnt really into any religion or any spiritual path. I keep dropping hints but hes not getting it. Im not sure how to tell him. Ive got to come out of the broom closet so to speak. Any ideas on how to do it?
No. I'm sans any firm belief right now. Which, was quite a shock to my husband. But, the more he came to understand where I was coming from; the more comfortable he became. He realized that labels don't define who you are as a person. All of the important things between us were unchanged.
Sit down near him and start reading a book like " The Witches Shield" or something along those lines. If/When he takes notice and asks you why you are reading that, tell him you're interested in it. Then start the dialogue. OR you could go to Hulu and watch a "Bewitched" marathon. We know that's not accurate...but least it would be a subtle way of moving conversation in that direction.
There's something I don't like about "I decided to become Wiccan."
Like you can decide whether or not to believe something? Faith, in a god, is something you feel in your heart.
As for your husband, you can start by telling him your beliefs, rather than throwing out a label like "Wiccan." (So he knows that "you are YOU", not "you are Wiccan," and you happen to believe in a goddess and etc.)
For your information kathleenkat, ive always believed in this with goddesses, it was noy until recently I found out what it comes under. Its not just a spure of the moment decision. Its took a long time for me to understand what I truely believe in. My other half does not believe in any type of religion thats why im a little hesitent to just come out and tell him. Im not meaning any of this in a badway and I respect your comment and that you for your contribution.
