Thank you for sharing your story.
It is a fascinating topic…to be shunned out if you are not joining in on the bottle of wine. It is kind of weird…isn’t there more for you now? Isn’t this a good thing?
When someone is not drinking, it brings out this deep insecurity in the other person and I am not quite sure why and that is what I am trying to figure out.
I have been around people who aren’t drinking and never called them boring. I understood that they probably just didn’t feel like it.
I agree with your story, there can be a lot of bullying or name calling and it is weird. The entire episode is a bit dramatic in my story intentionally, but I am glad that it resonated with you.
I would never bully you to drink, I promise.
