"In high school, I didn’t really have a clique. I had a few friends that I was really close with, but I was pretty much friends with everybody. Maybe people thought of me as a jock, possibly, or maybe a preppy, but I kinda floated around. My senior year, my friends at the time started drinking and going to parties, and I still wasn’t comfortable with that; I was taught not to do that. So to avoid that, whenever I got asked to go to a party or do this or that, I’d said ‘nah, I’m doing this with my girlfriend.’ So I separated myself from everybody else, and I kinda regret that. I should have been strong enough to go to those things but say ‘I’m not going to drink, or I’m not going to do that.’ And so I lost contact with a lot of them. Those friendships didn’t stay. I kept saying no, and no, and no, and eventually they stopped asking. Which made it easier for me, but in the long run I think I regret that. You should be strong enough to do what you believe is right, even amidst your friends or peers who may think otherwise. Try to stand strong for what you believe in. We were all in high school at one point in time. I know, just as well as anybody here, how much what those people think means. You’ve got to try your best to stay true to what you really believe."
