I have been a very shy and timid person much of my life.
When I was a kid, I spent most of my time alone.
Up in my room working on a computer was where I could be found almost anytime. Not so ironically, I ended up working with computers for a living. But I have always struggled mightily with confidence until a friend bought me some cannabis products. She’s actually the only girlfriend I had when I was in college. And we are still close. This dear woman hauled me along on a recent trip to the cannabis dispensary. This was my first time ever in a marijuana business. In fact, I had only used recreational marijuana a handful of times in my life. The staff member at the cannabis dispensary asked me what I was looking for. I replied, mostly in jest, that I’d like something that made me not care what others thought. To my utter amazement, he went right to a few hybrid strains for sale and got me a sample size. I wasn’t planning to buy any cannabis when I went in but I was now curious to see what was chosen for me. The hybrid strain that I purchased was so amazing. For maybe one of a dozen times in my life, I felt as though I was my own person. There was a confidence and a lack of concern when it came to others judgement of me. This was so liberating. My friend and I went out to dine even. This is something that I just don’t do. And we had a ball. I laughed out loud so many times that I stopped trying to catch myself doing it.
