Well, my name is KellyAnne, but you may call me Kelly.
I am 17, but don't let my age fool you.
I have NEVER been a religious, or spiritual person really, but something hit me the other day at the oddest of moments.
I realized that I have a lot of sorrow in my heart, that I don't appreciate everything I should, and that I don't appreciate my gifts to see the world in detail and vibrancy.
This saddened me greatly, and I don't want to leave this world having never lived my life to the fullest.
So, I started reading up on Paganism, the one path I had never thought or expected to take.
I was raised to be a Christian, but, it never really made any sense to me, the beliefs that go along with Christianity. I could never feel it in my heart.
I've always had a profound love for nature, sometimes when I am going for a walk, I feel the wind and I see the trees sway in its presence. They dance, and it is stunning.
I was taught many things, and some of them I disagree with, and some I agree with.
I believe you should try your best to be a good person, and you should help others, and that every human being, and every creature has a soul. I believe there isn't just one god or goddess, but many.

From what I've read about paganism, I do believe it suits me very well, it is a path I would love to travel down and explore.

I've always been the quiet, odd, and "unpopular" one in the crowd.
I have been ridiculed my entire life for being "weird."
I am filled with hate and anger towards those who have cast me out and treated me like dirt.
My mind is full of worry, sadness, and self-doubt.
My eyes only see the flaws I hold, not the things about me that should be acknowledged and celebrated, and developed.

I am not saying that I want to be Pagan so that I will be cured of my problems, I am saying I want to follow the pagan path because I feel in my heart and soul that it is right for me and will benefit me in life, mentally, and emotionally.
It gives me hope, which is something I have never had.
It gives me peace, which only sleep was able to bring before.
It gives me confidence that I am not alone in this world, and that there IS a reason to have hope, and to never give up on life.

I have many questions, I hope you all are prepared!
I look forward to your answers :]
