All of these girls are very close friends in college. One day Laura decides that she wants to go to a party where there will be alcohol and drugs. She decides to bring all of her friends with her to this party.
I want to go to a party. So we're all going!
I'm sorry Laura, but I can't go. This party is against my moral values. I hope we can still be friends.
We don't really want to go.
When Laura tells her friends about the party, they tell her that don't really want to go. Laura gets angry and starts to yell at them, saying mean things.
You all have to come or else I won't be your friend!!!
Laura begins to say that she won't be their friend anymore. Not wanting to start a conflict Laura's friends begrudgingly agree to going to the party.
Alcohol and Drugs really aren't my thing, but if I don't go I will lose my friend.
However, Laura's friend Emma really didn't want to go to the party. She was torn between doing what she wanted to do and losing her friend or going to a place that may have conflicted with her morals and values.
Emma decided that she wanted to follow her morals and told Laura that she did not want to go to the party because it conflicted with her moral values. She then said that she didn't want to stop being Laura's friend and hoped that they could still hang out, but she firmly told Laura that she was not going.
Laura was mad that Emma was not going, but she was impressed that Emma stood by her morals. Even though Laura wanted all of her friends to go she understood that she may have come off as self-absorbed and inconsiderate. Laura understood that Emma did not want to go and apologized for her behavior. The girls ended up staying at home and watched movies, an activity that everyone was comfortable doing.
It's okay! Let's go home and have a girl's night in!
