Dear One tough Muther,
My family likes to drink and there is always alcohol at party’s, picnics ect. I am one of the few who actually don’t like to drink. Maybe at night after the kids go to bed, I’ll have wine, but it’s not like if there is alcohol there, I will drink it , no questions asked. My mom kind of gets on my case about it. Teases me about how i don’t like to drink and says i must be from a different family. I don’t mind the teasing because that is how we are, but do you think it’s odd i’m not a drinker when my entire family is. Also I really really don’t like how my mother acts when she drinks. It’s the most annoying thing ever, maybe that’s why I don’t. I don’t want to embarrass myself!!
Yay, good for you Girl, a woman with a back bone who is not afraid to be herself. There is absolutely nothing wrong with you or with the fact that you don’t drink. In fact I believe you may be stronger than the others because you don’t give in to their pressure and cutting remarks. The fact that you care about yourself and have pride in your behavior makes you One Tough Muther.
Becca, I am very proud of woman who stand on their own and hold their heads up high and that is exactly what you are doing.
Congratulations, I am very proud of you, keep being you.
Huge Muther Hugs,
One Tough Muther
