Your avatar seems to be in some sort of private web space...  Every time I load a page that includes it, I'm being asked for a password. 

This was doing it for me, so I removed the image and PMed him that I had done so. The password problem was more annoying than PMs .  Cheesy

Ah, OK.  I should have thought to do that myself, sorry.

So I've noticed that some of you guys have pictures that aren't the ones that the site provides when you make a profile..
How do you add your own picture?  Huh

How did this affect your family situation?
It's not really. I've not been very open nor do I wish to. Maybe when I'm older, and I can show them that I'm not crazy, I just have different beliefs to them, I will. I just don't see any point in explaining anything to them when all I'm doing is reading books, with the possibility of pathworking at some point in the next couple of years.

Quote
Were any of you raised with a pagan religion?
No, although I've sort of raised myself with the ideals of spirituality.

Quote
Have there been many advantages/disadvantages to starting young?
I think the advantages of starting young is that you've got, as you said, a clearer path. I can think of my life in an order which can support my beliefs, and it can also help me with ideals for my first home. Like, gardens and similar (although, I know I would've had that anyway Tongue). The disadvantages is the fact that - I feel anyway - I've had difficulties that some teenagers have and other difficulties that a lot of teenagers have. This has broken up my study of Wicca, and my study of other Pagan religions. However, I feel that if I'd been older my mind would probably have narrowed quite a bit.

Quote
And do you think your age has affected your ability to follow your path - i.e. do you think you would have handled certain things differently at a different age?
Yes. I was quite immature when I was a bit younger - I mean, I've never seen Wicca as being anything I can use to control people ultimately, or effect people in stupid ways. But I certainly didn't know how to handle myself on boards such as these, which I don't think endeared me to anyone.

All in all though I can't change the past, so I've got to really just settle and make the best out of what I've got.

ProvenMagickal,

Thanks for quoting what you were replying to, but please don't forget to leave in the long quote code that looks something like this:
[quote author=ProvenMagickal link=topic=3999.msg105847#msg105847 date=1215595392]

The link back to the post you're replying to, which is inserted by that code, is just as important as the quote itself.  (You can find our full quoting guidelines in the rules section.)

Thanks!
