If life gives you lemons, ask for salt and vinegar.
My social life is lifeless. That is the brutal truth. It has always been so. I have always been the indoors person. That doesn’t mean if you throw a party indoors, I would attend.
I can almost count the birthdays and weddings I have attended. I don’t drink or smoke cigarettes or engage in orgies and I know that already put a huge dent in my list of possible social activities. Now, add that to being a medical doctor.
It just can’t work out.
Do I think I missed out? Yes and No.
I would want you to live life fully. Go out. Explore. Discover. Enjoy. Take risks.
Just don’t get killed. And I don’t mean just physical death.
If you choose a path similar to ours, your list of social events will be highly streamlined. Maybe even more streamlined than ours.
At least, we could attend events organised by church and be sure to leave with our salvation intact. Your generation though, I can’t even vouch for that.
We will keep praying for you.
Just a Little More…
1. Not all of us can be social animals/humans. Some of us would always find more fun staying in our space than trying to share space with dozens of other people. It’s not being snobbish or socially awkward. It’s being different.
2. However, we all need fun. Of course, definitions differ. But, not having any at all isn’t cool. Like we were taught, social skills are also a part of a ask development.
