It’s ok to have your cake and eat it too. You’ve worked hard to climb out of a bad situation. And you’re not in the same situation you used to be in. So stop looking at things around you today, in the same way you used to. Things have changed for the better and you need to change your perspectives along with them.
You’re not the naive person you once were. You’ve gone through trials and traumas that have educated your sensibilities and brought wisdom to your path forward. You know which mistakes not to make again and you know what behaviors work against your best interests. Knowing all that, you need to change your perspective about how you’re handling your choices and finances today.
Someone wants you to come and play like you used to. Don’t allow them to guilt you into the simple pleasures without care or concern. If this person can’t appreciate what you’ve been through, then they may not be the best person for you to be around just now. They’re an anchor of the past that you may need to let go of, so that you can continue moving forward. If they truly care about you and your well-being, they would understand your reluctance to indulge in their childish whims at your expense.
Stick to your plans and budget. No, it’s not as fun and it makes you seem like a “party-pooper” to your old crowd. So what. You have a goal to achieve. You have a future you’re planning for, that is within your grasp. The changes you’ve made have not been easy, but you’ve made them none the less. Don’t throw that all away for one afternoon of throwing caution to the wind. It’s not worth it!
This evening will come in its usual pace and you’ll be able to see the bullet you dodged earlier in the day. Be proud of yourself for resisting the urge. Be thankful that you weren’t caught up in the aftermath that some of your friends face now. The results might be enough to finally push them to rock bottom and cause them to finally make some necessary changes in their lives. If not, be aware of the pleas for help. It’s not your place to dig them out of the hole they got into. Sometimes the best thing you can do for a friend, is say No. And walk away.
