I was so happy with the response on my first BLOGGER TALK. Thank you so much for your lovely comments. I had an idea for a second post in this (now) series and after you told me to continue these posts, I wrote it down. This is a lot more personal than the last one, but I hope you like it.
It’s okay to not do it all.
I think some people would call it uncool, but to me it’s so much more than this. I don’t drink alcohol, I don’t go to clubs and discos and I am also not a big fan of parties. I know… But I thought I share with you why I don’t do all of these things and why it’s okay to not do it all.
First of all I don’t like the taste of alcohol. I tried a little bit of it and just never liked it. A few people actually told me that you just have to keep drinking and after a while you start liking it, but I just never saw the point in doing something I don’t like. I also don’t like the part of loosing so much control over myself. I went to a few parties and saw a few people who definitely had too many drinks. To them it was a lot of fun and I never have anything against that, but I just don’t want to do it myself. I mean this can change next year, or in a month, but at the moment I am happy doing it not.
Going to clubs is super nerve-racking to me. I went two times when I was in school and really hated it. I felt super anxious with all these people in one room and the second time it was so full and so many weird people where around me that I felt like I couldn’t breathe probably. I was super anxious and had to leave after one hour. Maybe it also was because of the people I went with, but to me it wasn’t a great experience.
I haven’t been to a “Party” in a little while, but in school they were all about alcohol and if you didn’t drink it was a hard time. People constantly tried to force you to it and I didn’t like that. I think it’s so okay to drink alcohol and have a great time, but it’s also okay to not drink and still have a great time.
I was a little nervous uploading this post, but Elena from Outnabout totally gave me the confidence to do it. Can I also quickly say that although I don’t drink and like the party life, I love to listen to all the funny stories from friends and my brother. I love that they enjoy it.
