I really wish my peers in real life realized how serious and important witchcraft is to me. This isn’t something I’ve started overnight. I’ve been in solitary practice for 5 years (with a few breaks, I’ll add), and this is nothing new. I didn’t all of a sudden evolve into a spirit worker or a healer like a fucking pokemon. I’ve just now come out of the broom closet, and I don’t think people realized I was ever even locked in there. My skills have developed over time. I’ve grown from the awkward teen medium into the multi-talented Witch you see before you. This is a way for me to harness my own energy and balance myself. Peers have even joked that I “look kind of witchy”, yet when I come out as an actual witch to someone, I get a confused stare into space. People want to make light of witchcraft to compliment my aesthetic, but don’t care to understand the power and beauty in the real thing. Acting distanced and uninterested when I try to explain what I do DEFINITELY doesn’t make me wanna show you. It’s really discouraging when you think someone might be intrigued, and they don’t care enough to even have sigils explained.
I just wish I had one witch to hang out with. I crave to interact with someone who will take the craft, and me, seriously.
