I feel like we’ve all been there – everyone’s trying to organise a night out somewhere and you’re sat reading the messages planning an excuse so you don’t have to go along. I’ve done it so many times I’ve lost count.
Honestly, things like nights out aren’t my thing. I’m not a big drinker. I have set foot in a club once two years ago for a friends hen night and I was home by just after midnight. It’s not my scene. I don’t like the atmosphere, it actually kinda gives me the ick to be honest so when it comes to people wanting to go out, I don’t have an issue saying no anymore.
In those kind of situations, I’ve never once felt like I’m missing out. I’ve kind of made it very clear to everyone I know that it’s not something that I’ll go too so now all my invites to birthday nights out are “you can come to pre’s at my house but you don’t have to come out” and I FUCKING LOVE THAT.
What it boils down too is that I’ve never been bothered about missing out because I don’t feel like I am anymore. I know those kinda things make me feel uncomfortable and going would make me feel so uneasy that I wouldn’t get to enjoy myself anyway.
I squashed my fear of missing out pretty early on when I realised I was going to things to please other people and not doing what was good for me and now I live my best home body life without feeling like I’ve missed out on anything!
Bottom line, you’ve always got to do what’s right for you!
