Does it bother you when other people are closeted?

I don't know
I do feel responsible to try to be "myself" as much as I can, which means that everything I am and do and feel and think and belief and experience and say should be as much "one" as possible, wherever I am or with whomever or whatever I do

but on the other hand Im not that of an outspoken person, maybe even shy in a way, find it hard to talk to people outside and maybe even harder to talk with people in function (like employers, therapists, insurance, salesmen, police, teachers, about everything), don't have much real friends either, and havent got to a party or gathering for a long time

and yet, I do feel something should be said, not only for witchcraft but for all kinds of other (discrimination, oppression, hierarchy, corruption, etc) problems too that I or others deal with or have dealt with, and I feel the responsibility to do that, be it as composer or writer or artist, and of course then I would also try to show myself and my connection to it

Twixt if you are not yet ready to tell them wait a bit. Get used to the idea that this may cause changes in your life that could be
positive or negative. It is your life and what you share with them is very personal. Good luck to you.


Blessings

Keeping secrets can be fun, but when your family has a tendency to go into detailed theological discussions when talking about random things, keeping them becomes annoying  :-p. I'm not afraid that my parents will try to burn me at the stake; we know quite a few people of the Pagan persuasion, of various flavors, and they've never had any issues relating to them. I'm just wondering how they're going to react finding out that their previously straight laced, went to a Christian school baby girl is now walking the witch path  :-p. I'm thinking is going to be fun explaining why and what changed for me. I always have a problem explaining my feelings to people, in spoken words

I know what you mean.  There's a certain subversive quality about being in the closet that's quite satisfying.(-:

Right at this moment, this is a poignant subject for me, because I'm just starting on my path of study and finally turning away from a religion that has felt hollow to me for most of my life. My fiancÚ is all for me finding my own path and was the one that encouraged me to look for a religion or spirituality that left me more fulfilled. He spent years bouncing between beliefs, until he recently settled on Judaism for himself as his bedrock.

I'm the type of person who likes to have deep philosophical discussions with random strangers, so hiding who and what I am and what I believe in that area is becoming really hard. I'm very close with my parents, who are rather conservative Christians; they are also the people I'm most likely to get into a theological discussion with. I don't like hiding things from them (I'm rather horrible at keeping personal secrets); while I don't believe they are going to severely freak and disown me, I'm not quite sure how well they are going to take the news of my new path. I'm leaving hints here in there in conversations and not making an effort to hide any of my books. I guess you could say I'm daring them to broach the subject first and ask me questions...

As far as representing the religion to the world, there are subtle ways of declaring your allegiance to a particular religion. Jewelry, tattoos (visible or not), even certain ways of living all represent oneself to the world. The important thing, I believe, is that you are comfortable in your representation and what you choose to do doesn't reflect back on the whole in a negative way.
