Q: I recently met a pretty well-known Pagan author and speaker at a local event. I’ve read all her books and her work has been inspirational to me for years. I was so excited to meet her, and I walked away from it so disappointed! She was nothing like I had imagined and nothing like her books come across! I feel like my years practicing and studying her books have been stolen from me and that I’ve been lied to by someone who presented themselves in a totally false way. I’ve been so depressed and lost since this happened, like I’m in mourning. Do you have any advice to help me move on without throwing in the towel on my spiritual path? How do I deal with this?
