I Feel Like An Outcast
I feel like an outcast.
When I make this bold statement, people seem shocked. Let me explain and you can see and better understand me. I don't drink alcohol, actually find it disgusting when a person is drunk. I don't have a problem with people who enjoy drinking alcohol drinking, but when people drink to get drunk it's just gross. I don't use drugs, even weed falls into that list. I don't like the way they make me feel and I can't be around most people that use them. I'm not into party's; 95% of them after all, are all about getting trashed and nothing is a bigger turn off then seeing people make complete %$@# of themselves. Did I mention I am a young, only 23 year old female?
So now maybe you can see why I feel this way. I don't have many friends because all the friends I've had have turned to heavy drinking, drug use or consistent partying. Heck, one of my, no longer best friends, and cousin... Is is stripper! No offense to any strippers out there, but you know what your doing and drama follows you like flies on horse... well, you get my point. I've gotten worse though. I feel as if I am the only person I know with the views I have at such a young age. I've drank, I've used drugs and I want nothing to do with either of them. Yet, my own opinion makes me a "party pooper". I don't do these things mainly because of my health. I care about my body and my health and choose not to take part. Yet, this has become a bit of an issue in life for me. I hate seeing people I care about drunk. I don't like being around drunk people, its just unbearable to me. This makes it hard to enjoy time with friends and even family. It's "cool" to drink and apparently I'm just not cool enough to see the point. In my own personal opinion, the media has made it so people, at a young age, start to believe they need to drink to have fun, to let loose, and to party. That's a bunch of BS! People today rarely even like the taste of alcohol or even enjoy it and merely drink it for the effects.
So in short, yes I feel like an outcast, BUT that's okay! We are all free to do what we want to our bodies and while I have a problem with people "overly" using drugs and alcohol, I have no issue with people actually enjoying them. There's a fine line there, but it's there. I choose to not be around people who are "drunk" or "intoxicated". I have lost friends over this and I'm okay with that. I am after all not "of" this world, I only live on it!
**I would like opinions on this so please share with me how you view drug use, alcohol use and "partying"!**
