My Mom Hates My Religion
My mother really hates my religion.
I was baptized catholic, but I never belonged to a Catholic church. I have always been Christian, going to Sunday school like a good little girl, until my parents got divorced. I still continued to go to Sunday school because I had friends there until I was in 7th grade. Then, with my dad's girlfriend (then of 2 years), we joined a Moravian church near where she lives (45 mins away). His girlfriend is really nice, and him and her are really into spiritual things, mostly the religion Wicca. I learned how to be a witch and conduct spells (which have always worked), and I am now an official witch.
But my mom hates it.
I helped her do two spells, but she doesn't follow the rules, and she keeps them in doubt. They'll never happen if you think negatively.
She says it's nonsense, you can't believe in God and believe in witchcraft. That's only PART of it. I believe in the whole natural beings thing, maybe possibly fairies, and that we all have an animal spirit.
She hates my religion, so I can never talk about it to her.
I used to be close to her, but we just keep getting further and further away.
I wish we could be as close together as when my parents were together, and we spent the days together playing tennis and her teaching me how to play.
I wish I could still go to her tennis tournaments and eat the free food and laugh at the A team.
I wish we could be close, but my religion put a barrier that I never wanted there.
