Please. Can you guys help me? My family has found out that I'm a closet witch. And they have told me that if I don't stop, they're going to force me out onto the streets. Me practicing is one of the "tools" that I use to battle my anxiety and depression. Please, if anyone of you can help me I would greatly appreciate it.

Oh, sweetie, what a heartbreaking story.

If your family are going to use those sort of tactics, it matters little what you challenged them with, legal or not - whether you were a witch, or you just wanted to dye your hair green, or that they discovered you are an evil lesbian bondage queen who locks young girls in her cellar.... anything they don't like, they'll come down on you.

You face stark choices - you can "knuckle under" - do as they wish, and let them control your life to suit their own insecurities, or you can be thrown out and then do as YOU wish. Even if they genuinely believe you're on the proverbial Highway To Hell - and that is possible, they don't get to control your choices, and using the threat of forcing you out onto the streets, is despicable.

See what community services are available, and seek advice from your mental health team, which I hope you have, as you are battling mental illness.
Whether you do or do not, refusing to be pushed around, or to hide who and what you are, are powerful weapons to use against both anxiety and depression.
We can't change our families, but we can change ourselves.

My best wishes to you.
