Personal Interpretation vs. Different Religion

When does ones beliefs that differ from the general consensus of ones path cease to be simply ones personal interpretation and become signs that one is not of that path?

I have often had trouble reconciling my beliefs with those I have encountered who are supposed to be on the same path as myself. While most Pagan paths do allow for a certain degree of personal interpretation and UPG, I can't help but feel that sometimes, personal interpretation goes so far as to make ones beliefs a new religion.

In my personal experience, my beliefs do align better with a different path than simply as a personal interpretation of another, hence my choice to pursue conversion. I was curious, however, to see what other opinions or experiences are out there.
