I like to hear other people's stories about their beliefs and how they came to believe what they do.
I'd like to hear about your specific belief and a little about its history (where it originated from), what "holy" or belief based books go alone with it and how you came about to believe it? Who are your dieties? Did you choose them or did they choose you? How did you know that your belief was right for you? What in your life confirms for you that your belief/diety is real?
I am especially interested in the Pagan beliefs because some of the gods/goddesses I've heard mentioned here I've never heard of before. I like to think of myself as knowing a little bit about every belief but I haven't scratched the surface of Paganism.
This question is open to anyone of any belief. I'd love to hear anyone share their story and help me learn more.

I was raised as a JW. My mother, her sisters and mother are all JW. My grandfather and his side of the family were all very strict Roman Catholic. As a small child (as far back as I remember) I was able to see things that others couldn't. Spirits if you will. I could hear them speak to me as well. I was told that these were demons I was seeing and they were doing Satan's work. Or that I was evil. I could never find any truth to this, and never believed it. I was raised with a bible study every night, church 3 times a week and morning scriptures. But just never found truth in any of it, I felt no comfort and never felt happy on that path.
