Stand up for yourself and your morals…
Today’s post is going to be a bit more on the serious side.
This post was originally supposed to be a post about our trip up to Canyon Lake for my hubby’s birthday on June 23rd but things kind of turned upside down and we ended up leaving the lake early.
What lead me to write this post:
The weekend of the 23rd was supposed to be a fun birthday weekend for my husband and we had been waiting for this weekend for a while. But things turned to crap and we unfortunately ended up not having the fun weekend we planned on having.
We drove up to Canyon Lake, Arizona June 23rd, Friday evening after work, which was John’s 23rd birthday! WOO GOLDEN BIRTHDAY! Right?! We were so ready to party up the weekend with a couple of friends and just relax by the lake.
We arrived around 7:30pm that night and immediately threw on our bathing suits (because if you don’t know this already… Arizona is a killer heat state)! John grabbed his beers and we were ready to get this weekend started.
Don’t get me wrong the night was pretty fun all before it turned the wrong direction. I was tired but I was still having a good time and was looking forward to the next two days at the lake… but I got a tad frustrated with one of our friends who was getting a little out of control for her age… and by that I mean riskayy with her actions — if you know what I mean.
Let me mind you, she had been drinking since the middle of the day so she was already wasted by the time we arrived to our camping spot at the lake… so I could already sense something to go wrong but I was trying to focus on the fun of the weekend.
I am not going to get into details but I will say that, with her being drunk and acting a little riskayy… she was acting a little too friendly with my John and I was not taking a liking to it.
I know she was drunk and that is fine if you want to be a little raunchy… that is YOUR CHOICE. But when it comes to acting that way towards my husband I will not tolerate it.
Now… I didn’t feel like confronting her to her face about her inappropriate actions towards John because again… she was completely drunk. I already knew how it would go down if I told an intoxicated girl to stop being provocative towards my husband… she would throw a hissy fit!
I don’t need that, john doesn’t need on his birthday. So I decided to tell John that I did not like how she was coming across to him and asked him to stop her if she continued.
I hold my standards and morals high… even being 21 years old I do not agree with girls and especially women who are 31 being — and this might be a little blunt but — slutty. But again that is your choice. Just don’t bring it on to my husband.
I guess she had heard us talking about her because our tent happened to be by the cooler that she was getting her beer out of.
Long story short, we all got into a huge fight because she did not like hearing that (word for word) “her name was in someone else’s mouth”. Real mature for a 31 year old right?
She didn’t like the fact that someone was calling her out for being a drunk and for being a little too riskayyy. And that’s understandable, but it also needs to be understood that you should not be coming across like to other people’s husbands.
To be honest, she didn’t think she was coming across that way and it was probably because she had lots to drink, but that is also why I did not tell her to her face. Again, I knew how she would react if I told her how I thought she was coming across… that is why I chose to talk to John about it instead of confronting her.
It might have been the alcohol.. but it still is not an excuse to act that way and then not understand where I am coming from.
So pretty much… our friendship ended that night and we decided to go home at 4 in the morning that Friday night.
So much for a Golden Birthday!
After experiencing that event, I came to realize that more people should stand up for themselves and their morals. Don’t let someone think that you are being crazy for believing in something or not being as out there *wink wink* as others.
You do not have to be accepted by everyone and you definitely do not have to be friends with people who do things that you do not approve of. Just be yourself and surround yourself with people who follow your morals or at least respect them.
I know this was quite deep this week but I just felt like sharing that insight with you loves♥ Plus, I had to write about something this week with the Canyon Lake post out the window… haha
On a good note… 🙂
I did have a fun video go up on the YouTube channel yesterday of my friend Sierra and I trying out lots of Mexican candy! It was super fun and hilarious! Feel free to check it out:
Have you ever been in a sticky situation where someone didn’t respect you? What is your opinion on good morals? Leave me a comment!
