I am 23 and I never did any drugs and I rarely drink. I think I had one mixed drink in my whole life and I did not even finish it. I personally think I live a full good life. I have 2 children and a husband and yes got married young(19) We my little cousin who is 18 posted on facebook about her wanting to go to Vegas to get drunk. I tell her maybe she should think about finishing school and get a job first. You know worry about more important things. Especially since she is not old enough for all that. Well my other cousin who is 4 years older than me butts in and starts encouraging her to party and tells me I need to live life and stop being so uptight!! I told her I DO live life and I have a lot of fun just not they're kind of idea of fun (drinking and doing drugs) I told her I enjoy shopping, camping, vacations, and other outings. I don't like clubbing (I have been to a club twice) Also they don't have children I do! UGH! I hate how she supports our little cousins screw ups and it is a lot! I don't have to do stupid stuff to have fun right? What do you think?
:-), Remeber this " I am powerless over anyone but myself". Although we want to save the world, protect and help all of those we love, and make the lives better for those who are not doing the right things, we can only carry the love- not the person. I am sure it frustrates you to hear your cousin promote this kind of behavior, find the pity for them. It is not the answer to fun and a good life. it is just the opposite. Some day karma will knock on her door and she will see that she is in the wrong. In the mean time, just keep living well and when this cousin starts to irritate you, just think good thoughts and don't give her the power to affect your life. Have a great night.
