Getting back to the Pagan Blog Prompts with this topic.
In or Out?
I would have to say that I am both. My broom closet has a revolving door. I stepped out of the broom closet as far as my friends are concerned about 3 years ago; about a year after I started to follow this path. My family is the other side. At least to everyone but my mom. I don’t discuss much of my beliefs with them.
Do I have to hide my ‘pagan-nature’?
Not in public I do not. I am very open about my beliefs and spirituality in public. I wear a pentagram and the triple goddess symbol every day. At work everyone knows my beliefs and they are very interested in things and how I celebrate different times of the year and some have even gone as far as saying things like “Have a great Summer Solstice or Autumn Equinox”.
Besides this I also co-own and operate an online pagan store as well as a brick and mortar store here in Denver. So in those two areas I am quite out of the closet.
I hope to some day remove the revolving door and forever remain out of the broom closet until then, let it spin.
