Goody two-shoes

There is nothing more uncomfortable (to me) than being around people that are polar opposites of who I am. 

I'm not gonna even try to hide the fact that I'm kind of a goody two-shoes. I blame my rebelish childhood for being such a straight-line woman.

I don't smoke marijuana like half the people I'm related to. This also clearly implies that I don't do any drugs and I never will. When I say I'm going to be somewhere, I commit. If there's a due date on something, I turn it in early. I have manners and know when to mind them. Etc... etc...

When people are literally 100% opposite of that, it makes me feel extremely uncomfortable. For example, I am related (by law) to someone who bullies people constantly, smokes weed, and doesn't take responsibility for anything. Yuck. Not exactly my cup of tea.

I'm not saying you have to be the girl next door to be my friend. But you are associated by what company you keep. So why would I want to be known for something that I'm not? Call it whatever you want, I call it trying to be the best person that I can be.

  2. I'm pretty much a goody two shoes. I think I can get along with just about anyone, though, as long as I FEEL comfortable around it. The person you described would make me squirmy and uneasy, but I CAN get along with people as long as they give me a good feeling. It's something I've been criticized. I don't have a foul mouth and I'm pretty open about the fact that I don't like foul mouths. One of my closest friends has a sailor's mouth. I've been told it's a double standard. I take it more as, I go with my gut. How does the person make me feel?

  5. I am the SAME way! I don't like being around drugs of any kind and if they're there, I'll leave. Part of this is me growing up SO sheltered, but I also don't have any desire to experience anything like that. I hate to see people throw their lives away over something like marijuana.

  6. Hahah I kind of really relate to this! I'm literally the complete opposite from almost all of my immediate family. Like, polar opposite, night and day. I think that's what makes us different from the rest, we respect ourselves to not do harmful things to us and others.

  7. You are preaching to my choir girlie! All of that you just talked about are things I loathe. I do admit I'm always running late but I have never and will never try a single drug, cigarette or other nasty things like them.
