It’s Saturday night, and you are still in bed dreading to leave the house – you just want to say no! Canceling on your friends can lead to a lot of guilt and FOMO, but there are ways to get around these feelings that mainly involve getting stupid stoned and falling asleep before you get dressed to go out. Here’s how:
Prioritize Your Needs.
Even the most extroverted amongst us need a little solo TLC time! Needing alone time is totally valid, and a night of heavy drinking is sometimes just too much. Instead, prioritize what you need by heavily smoking weed until you become one with your bed. Ahhhhh.
Realize That Rest is Important.
Adult life is hard! Chances are you’re probably zipping between work and social events all the time. Realize that rest is utterly important and carve out some time for yourself by not going out! Instead, show up for yourself and smoke a fat fucking blunt until your eyes are weighed shut by a beautiful Indica goddess. Now that’s someone worth hanging out with!
Be Honest With Your Friends.
The guilt we feel from flaking on our friends is a huge reason people have trouble making time for themselves. This is why it’s important to be honest with your friends, and don’t lie! Tell them that yes, you are getting ready, you’re just going to finish this bowl before you head out. Then, never show up and don’t answer your phone because you are sprawled out on your bed snoozing next to a half-eaten frozen food dinner from Trader Joe’s. Your friends are probably going to catch on.
Suggest Hanging Out Another Time
Another way to alleviate the guilt of canceling on your friends is to suggest another time to hang out, when you’re feeling more recharged! Do this after you get stoned and sleep through your plans, by texting your friend “hey sorry got mega stoned and fell asleep. wanna hang out sometime next week?” They probably won’t want to hang because you flaked on them, but it’s their fault now! I’ll smoke to that!
We hope you learned a thing or two from this article about setting boundaries for yourself and also smoking a fuck ton of weed. Use these tips and soon you will be able to say “no” like a totally blazed pro!
