My ex-husband smokes pot and drinks a lot, and I am told, so does his girlfriend. He once told me that I am too righteous because I don’t drink or do drugs, and attend church. I struggled with this notion for a long time. I used to think something was wrong with me because I don’t like to party. That’s what he wanted me to believe. I am in my early thirties and I used to party when I was younger but I think it is very superficial and would rather be doing something else. I am very different than he is. In fact, I once thought that we liked the same things and had a lot in common. I was very wrong. I do not know who he is. It is funny that you can be with someone for several years and not even know them.
I guess I am a simple person, I like running, biking, community events and going to church. I also like to be around people, who are like me. In fact, I did not realize this before, but none of my friends smoke, drink, or use drugs. Is there something wrong with all of us? I think, when you are with someone for so long, that is all you know and believe that is how you are supposed to be.
