Hello everyone, thought it would be good form to introduce myself. You can call me Azure, and I am a guy (thought I would just get that out of the way
). I have been interested in Paganism and related stuff for a bit, but have now decided to begin taking a deeper look. I am not sure if these forums are very active, I see there have been a couple posts recently, so I might as well post and see.
Some background information on me. I suffer from some seriously debilitating anxiety problems, which had pretty much taken over my life. The main problem is social phobia; I have major anxiety issues with being around people. It got to the point that I dropped out of school, and have had pretty much no contact with the 'outside world' for a couple years.
I have taken a look at pretty much every religion and spiritual path out there, but for reasons I can't explain something about Paganism/Wicca seems to kind of just click a little more for me. It might have to do with the sort of 'choose your own adventure' vibe, in that there is room for personalization of your own path.
My hope is to hopefully find a path for me that I find fulfilling and beneficial, and maybe even getting to know some other like-minded people in the process. Hopefully I am in the right place, if not please let me know; and hopefully I haven't scared anyone too much already.
Well, thats all I have to say for now, if you read all that... I am surprised. Thanks!
