New Years - to go out or to not go out?

matt17 profile image

I’m honestly on the fence about going out for New Years tonight. One of my best friends and I had an argument a few nights ago and I am a bit frustrated with drinking and socializing and whatnot.

All I know is tomorrow I want to get outside and do some hiking so I’m debating just going to bed early tonight. However, I feel like I might get lonely and sad if I don’t ring in the New Year with anyone.

What are you guys doing for New Years? Anyone else struggling?

Thanks for the help, as always.

Well, I am pregnant so no drinking for me tonight, but I know what you’re going through. I’ve had a few friends text me asking if I wanted to be the DD tonight, & I haven’t been able to give the response that I’m sure they are waiting for... A big no! I haven’t rung in the new year in a party setting for the second time now, but I can tell you that no matter what you do, it will all be forgotten in a week anyways. If you want to spend time with friends without drinking, that’s a cool thing to do. If you want to skip the whole thing, you can do that too. I hope you have an amazing New Year’s Eve no matter what!!!! Xoxoxo

Lol thank you for the response. That’s a good point, it will be forgotten in a week anyways! Haha. My thought is, might as well start the New Year on a good note and be well rested and taking care of yourself mentally! Thanks for the insight and I hope you have a good New Years also!

OMG! You’re pregnant. Congratulations! How far along are you? I’d say your priority is your health as well as your developing baby’s. Who says you have to drink tonight. Everyone else can sip alcohol while you sip water while toasting the New Year.

I’m excited for you. I feel like I’m going to be an uncle again!

Yes sir! I am pregnant! Lol! It was from when I had that hookup with my ex, in case you’re wondering! Before I met Arie!!! I didn’t cheat! 😂😂 I’m laughing so hard. I’m 21 weeks today, actually! I’m having a baby boy! You’re definitely an uncle!!! 😘😘

If he has a middle name yet, my vote is Michael (after his excited uncle to be). But I’ll leave the naming decision to you.

I have 4 nephews and a niece. I love being an uncle.

This time around hun, take care of your health. Keep the growing little one safe. I’m so excited for you!

hi why don't you stay at home relax go climbing tomorrow then celebrate with a couple of beers in the of both worlds.

Sounds like a good plan. Thank you kenster 👍🏼

I’m watching the Twilight Zone Marathon on Scyfy. At midnight I’ll watch the ball drop in Times Square in NY. Then off to bed.

Whatever you decide, enjoy your blissful hike tomorrow.

Yes, she is! One of the best! I love her precious soul more than I could ever put into words!!! Xoxoxo

I’m pretty indecisive myself lol I’m deciding to go out or not too lol

Just Another One For Me . If I "Dreaded" Going Out ? I'd Just Stay Home. Because I'd Be Setting Myself Up For Triggering Anxiety Because Of "Dread"...
