Why do people always judge?
Stuff has been going down lately, and its all because of misunderstandings, because people tend to put so much faith in second hand information. No one believes me anymore, not even my own friends.
Recently its become somewhat of a trend for kids in my year to invite everyone to their house for a party. A party that involves underage drinking, one night hook ups and loud music. I’m sorry, butsonot my scene. Granted, there are funny moments-like when the quietest kids suddenly become rowdy or when the most cynical boy in your year becomes overly affectionate.
And yes, this is second hand information, I’ve never actually been to one of these parties. And, yes, I am probably sounding really snobbish and stuck up. But you know what? It’s not like everyone doesn’t think that of me already.
Just because I don’t want to go doesn’t mean I’m judgmental. I just don’t want to do that stuff. I have better things to do with my life than watch all my friends get drunk. It’s not personal. I just don’t want to go! I love everyone in my yearthat is until I found out that they were talking viciouslyabout me behind my backbut that doesn’t mean that I won’t stand up for I believe in.
And yes. I know that you’re not the freakin’ devil. I didn’t say you were, for one thing. I appreciate the effort that everyone takes to include me, but please don’t judge me if I say no. In the same way, I’m not judging you for under age drinking. I’m just saying it as it is- it’s your choice. You’re not earning my respect my pressuring me and my friends to join your ‘party.’
My friend who went to that party said to me today- ‘at least I can now talk about it without being judgmental’. Well, honey, I’d just like to say that you don’t have to join them to make your own ‘valid’ call. In the same way, you don’t have to steal something so that you can validly say stealing is wrong.
It’s just so frustrating. I don’t care what other people in my year think of me, but I definitely care what my friends think about me. It’s just, how am I being judgmental by refusing to go because I feel like it wouldn’t be an effective use of my time?Yes, I am being cold and rational.
You say its a good time to bond? Fine. I’m happy to go out to dinner, to go see a movie or something. There are more creative things you could do.
I’m not against drinking, just the presure to partake in an activity that is in fact illegal,ie where half the party is underage. If I join you, its my choice, and if I don’t? Well, its my choice too, and you need to respect that. And when we’re 18, sure we’ll go clubbing. But until then, your parties are not for me.
It’s funny how people carve out totally different identities for themselves on tumblr…
