I have been drawn to magic since I was young but was really pulled in, in my early teens and had a strong belief at that time but was constantly knocked down and criticized for my belief in my family.
I now believe I cannot cast magic and that I have no magic within me at all.
My mother had her awakening a couple years ago and is now openly doing what she knocked me down and criticized me of. I do not blame her or hold hard feeling towards her instead I am happy and support her.
I just feel as if a piece of me is missing.
Even if I am unable to cast spells I am eager to learn and all advice is welcome and greatly appreciated!!!
First I would like to state that everyone has potential to be able to use magic, you don't lose that potential. You work hard on the "known" fundamentals of magic and hone what you learn. Second, an awakening makes it sound overly-whimsical, by to each their own, I call it a calling, as you stated you were drawn to magic at a very young age, while it could be your curiosity or something totally different, it doesn't matter, if you're curious of magic, you've been called. There are many great articles and forums posts dedicated to help people hone their inner practitioner.
