One of the downsides for me of having such a vibrant, active social life is when I have a night out and then don’t go out the night after. I get this night after the night before feeling.
Let me explain.
Fortunately, I have a very active social life and when I go out I socialise with lots of people.
I might go out with one or two friends but we nearly always meet a lot of other social acquaintances as we move from bar to bar and this is is one of the problems and also one of the reasons that I get the night after the night before feeling.
I also go out with friends who I absolutely love and adore.
We laugh and laugh and laugh. We look after each other. We care about each other. Most importantly we never argue no matter how much we drink.
Mutual respect and understanding.
Plus none of us want to fuck each other! We just want each other’s friendship.
So on the night after the night before I tend to get a little bit down because of the amazing night or weekend I’ve just had. Plus it’s now over, it’s not necessarily back to reality more back to home life, which in my case absolutely sucks.
So I get a little bit depression knowing that the fantastic night I’ve had the night before won’t reoccur, at the very least for a few days or maybe even a few weeks.
Yes, I’d really like to go out every single night and I think I probably could still function as a human being the day after. In November 2019 I lived in the city center for almost 2 months and my friend and I went out every night for a month. I’ll come back to this in a minute.
So, I leave Manchester and the closer I get where I live the more my anxiety grows as the knowledge that I not only don’t want to live here but because some of the people in the village are absolutely vile towards me.
This really contributes to the night after the night before feeling. Coming home to somewhere you don’t feel the same or like it’s home.
The sooner I can leave this place the happy I will be.
Now some of you might be saying who can afford to go out every night? Well, I can.
That’s not some conceited remark it’s not even with careful planning and budgeting it’s about going out to socialise. Not going out to get absolutely drunk off our heads.
On a night out on Wednesday my friend Jane and I got a bit merry, talked a lot, not just to each other but other people we know and then we danced for about 2-hours and we only spent £20 each.
I definitely had that night after the night before after that night out!
