Saturday Night In

Call me an old lady but having an evening in to me is so much more appealing than going out. Don’t get me wrong an occasional evening out is really nice, especially a date or at the pub with friends, but snuggling up in the evening to a film or a cracking TV show is just SUPERB.

Last night I was asked to go out for drinks in the city and although the logistics of it wouldn’t have worked and the thought of it nearly gave me a full blown anxiety attack, I actually decided that I’d prefer my own company that evening.

I think people put too much pressure on themselves to go out just because it’s a “Saturday night”. I’m sure a percentage of people really just want to be able to update their Snapchat story or Instagram page so they can say ‘I’m out with my really close friends having a great time getting drunk, creating memories and you weren’t invited.’ When in actual fact, they’re probably not enjoying themselves as much as their social media portrays and just don’t want to be alone.

But it’s OK to be alone and to enjoy your own company from time to time. Everyone forgets this in a modern society because it’s a constant social climb and an ‘I’m better than you’ contest. So don’t let someone call you boring, because you’re not. You’re owning a night in by yourself and if you’re still smiling when you’re warm and snuggled up in bed just finishing your 7th film, then you’ve done yourself good. It’s important to remember this and it’s important to just be the real you.
