Tagged: Prom friends drugs drinking help
Before I get stared, this isn’t your regular “I wanna go to prom but can’t find a date/don’t know whether or not to ask him,” prom kind of thing. In fact, this might just be a brand new type of prom question.
So ever since I got to high school, I’ve wanted to go to a dance. Any dance would be fine, homecoming, winter formal, spring formal, prom, whatever. And as human beings, we always want what we can’t have. I especially wanted to because I’m homeschool and would never be able to go unless someone invited me. The funny thing is, most people would never guess that I was homeschooled unless I said something. Once you tell people your homeschooled, they look at you differently. Yes, I might not always be caught up on the hippest of the hippest slang that only they use or whatever. But I still get it. I’m not ignorant because I’m homeschooled. In fact, I’m actually use online school and have actual teachers, actual peers, actual clubs and a actual GPA. Gasp. But anyway, most of my friends are very hesitant to invite me to any dance solely on the fact I’m homeschooled and don’t go to their school. Even though I just want to go, with a boy, a friend or a group, I’d go!
However, even though I want to go to prom so badly, I don’t know if it’s necessarily a good idea to go with this group of people, especially being such a strong Christian. If you want to do drugs and drink, fine, but I won’t. I stand for something much greater than myself which is the Lord. My life is a statement piece of the God’s and I’d wanna do it how He would do it. I’ve never been put in a situation where I would have such centralized pressure on me, but I know I would say no, and speak up if need be, based on previous circumstances. I just don’t want to get dragged down in any bad mojo they may cause.
Help and prayers please?

Hey Victoria! Typically when it’s so late I won’t usually write out anything long but I really felt this topic speaking to me, being a homeschooler myself.
1 Corinthians 15:33 ESV
Prom is suppose to be a fun night, and if you go in with a heavy conscious and you know that who you’re hanging out with isn’t the right people to be around then don’t go. You definitely won’t enjoy yourself! Listen to what the Lord is saying to you, as hard as it may be. I realize how desperately you wish to go to the prom, but under situations like this, is it really worth it?
Also, I don’t know if where you live does it but maybe you can see if there’s any local homeschool proms? I know that where I live they have several going on, so it’s worth checking it out!
I do hope I helped, and if you have anymore questions don’t hesitate to ask me! I love to help in anyway. My prayers go out to you!

I would talk to your friend (and maybe also to your parents and your friend’s parents) about the people that are going to go with you to make sure that you now know all the details 😉 If I understood you right, your friend doesn’t drink, too? That’s great 🙂 It’s always better not to be alone because people will always ask questions ( I once was at a birthday party where everyone was getting drunk and I excused myself with anemia because I had my period and I was getting very strange looks 😀 , but at least they accepted it).
Under these circumstances I would encourage you to go and have a good time 🙂
I also didn’t drink on my Abitur ball (equals senior prom) and wasn’t friends with a lot of people, but I still had fun and I would have regretted it if I had stayed at home. I left at 1 in the morning while the others drove off to another location to continue partying 😉
