I know I haven’t really been keeping up with posting lately (even before we switched the blog’s hosting platform), and I’m sorry for that. I really hadn’t been feeling “myself” lately.
Not that I was sick or anything, I just felt disconnected from myself and I needed to take some time away to figure me out. And to just decompress. I’m still working on me (and that’s perfectly okay), but I think I’m finally becoming more accepting of the things I’m into and feeling less like I need to shelter myself away from the world.
I didn’t want to accept the fact that my religion of choice is a form of Paganism for so long. Not because I was ashamed of it. But because society usually looks at you different when you let it out that that’s the religious path you are on. I didn’t want to be considered weird, or judged for it.
But in the process of trying to “fit in” with what society approves us, I actually damaged my mental health. So I’m over it. I’m done sheltering who I am out of fear of what society will say or think. I’m over worrying about trying to fit in with everyone else.
I am a Norse pagan specifically an Asatru. I haven’t told many people yet, so far actually on Andy knows. Not that I’m ashamed of it, but more so avoiding the judgement from my family.
I was raised in a highly Catholic family, so going against that religion definitely will get some looks and will cause people to talk. But one day I’ll get to the point to where I’m fully comfortable and accepting of it myself. I’m definitely working on it.
To those of you who do accept it,thank you. I’ll be making posts here and there following my journey to accepting it if you’d like to follow, they’ll be in their own category named “Asatru Path”.
Thank you all for making me feel comfortable to finally be my true self and accept who I am. I love each and every one of you!
