)O( Merry Meet )O(
« on: October 12, 2010, 11:51:36 AM »

Hello, everyone...and merry meet.  It just occurred to me that I've been lurking around here for awhile and occasionally replying to posts, but that I had never introduced myself.  So hello!

Anyway, I call myself a witch, partly because I aspire to be the "wise woman" of the past, and have been studying herbal remedies and folk medicine.  I don't think that what I believe exactly follows what Wicca defines itself as?mostly?and the term Pagan doesn't feel comfortable in my mind, so witch it is.  (Also, superficially, I'm also one that likes to see the humor in everything, especially nowadays, so being taken for the whole stereotypical Halloween/Wizard of Oz-esque  witch gives me the giggles, but don't get me wrong, I take my belief structure very seriously.)

So far, I have really enjoyed this board, and have gained a few new insights, which have strengthened and fleshed out my beliefs, or made me question some of them, which is part of the learning and growing process as well.  Hopefully, I will return the favor and help someone else strengthen their own faith.

Looking forward to reading and posting more in the future!  )O(  Blessed Be!  )O(

Welcome, welcome, sweetheart.
I'm glad you are such a strong soul. 
I know what you mean about calling yourself a witch.  I am in the same boat in the sense that I do take some from Wiccan, but I consider myself a little more old school witch.  I'm still learning what that means to me.
Anywho, we will figure it out :) 
Good luck and let us know if you need anything!

Blessed be,

Hello and welcome, starry eyes! I'm happy to meet you. I am not Wiccan, either. Started down that road but found I was more comfortable with the Traditional Witch path. I suits me much better. There are a lot of intelligent, helpful people around here, as I'm sure you have noticed. You sound like a strong person who shouldn't have any trouble ignoring the immature jerks. Best of luck to you as you continue your journey!

Welcome, starry eyes! It is wonderful to have you here with us. I'm yet another gal here who isn't Wiccan.

Hail and welcome to TCC.  I know something about abuse because I was sexually abused when I was 11 by my grandfather on my dad's side of the family.

As for my path, I don't if I am a witch, yet I have a great laugh about the stereotypical witch from the wicked witch in The Wizard of Oz movie to the recent witch/wizard adventures in the "Harry Potter" series of books and movies.  However, despite my interest in those stereotypes of the witch and wizard, I do hope I take my "religion" seriously.

Also, part of me is pulled toward Wicca, yet part of me is more interested in becoming a witch.  I do have one book about Wicca Thoth Scott Cunningham wrote, yet I have not read about traditional witches or anything about witchcraft.  I need to look it up on the Internet or find more information in books.

Blessed Be,

Kim 8)

Welcome to TCC

Wow - that is quite an ordeal and it is never easy breaking away from a situation like that.  I'm glad to hear you made it out and have a fresh start.

Bright Blessings,
I am sorry to hear about this, it is tragic.
And I agree, thank the Goddess he has some restraints from getting near you due to his job.
I do hope things will eventually clear out, if not, improve gradually over time.
Also, life has been tough for me as well, but not as tough as what you're coping with,
I respect your strengths and determination.
