I've heard some funny stories, so what's yours?
And, no, I'm not a witch anymore, but I HAVE been there with my own personal story.
I summoned (no pun intended) up the courage to tell my folks, walked into the living room and said, "Mom, dad, I have something to tell you. I'm a witch!" It wasn't pretty. Mom dropped the plate she was washing, dad stared at me with his remote control in mid channel-changing position. He just looked at me and said "No, your not. Witches aren't real."
Maybe that wasn't the BEST way I could have broke the news, LOL . . .

I didn't ever have to "come out" either. My mother was a kitchen witch & former Wiccan, so she quickly guessed I was looking more closely into Neopaganism. Eventually she asked me what my specific path was. My father never discussed anything remotely religious with anyone. My younger sister (who is a Buddhist now) asked me for a lot of information & still participates with me in some events, my older sister (a Christian) asked my mom what I "was". The rest of my family (extended) just talks infrequently about my "new age" beliefs, they don't ask for specifics. At work I have made it known what holidays I celebrate as it was relevant. I know that 2 of my coworkers know about Neopaganism & realize it is my path. The others seem content to not discuss the specifics of my "different" (from theirs) beliefs. Some friends asked me about my pentacle etc. & I have told them specifically that I am a witch, others haven't.

Totally understandable MrsBat a lot of us have been there or are going through the same thing. Families unfortunately can be the worst of the offenders when it comes to being hurtful about our path.
