Have you ever tried to be someone you weren’t? It took me so much beer (Lone Star, to be exact) to turn into the boisterous, people pleasing party girl I thought society wanted out of me. Through my twenties I had what I now know were panic attacks from forcing myself into an unnatural role.
Once I broke out and turned back into the book-reading, Phish-loving, stare-into-space human I naturally was, suddenly I could breathe easily again. Be your authentic self, your mental health demands it! Don’t worry about what the majority are doing- they are sheep who don’t question their lifestyle and choices.
