Whenever I’m out in public, I appreciate to be as discreet as possible; I’m not the biggest fan of drawing attention to myself whether it’s with the way I dress, the color of my hair, or big tattoos displayed on my skin.
I understand that numerous would call myself and others prudish, however this is just simply how I was raised.
I wasn’t even allowed to purposefully burp in front of the rest of my family. If it ever happened by accident, both of us were expected to excuse ourselves excessively. This is a tough environment to grow up in as a child, no doubt. When I see people getting loud and excited in public, there’s a section of myself and others that always feels second hand embarrassment at a subconscious level. My conscious mind doesn’t care, however there’s always that section of my mind that is deeper down which experiences a visceral reaction to these stimuli. When I started using cannabis in college, I was always drastically paranoid about public use. My friends would pull out bongs in moving cars while both of us were in broad sunlight and I would nearly lose myself in response. It would freak myself and others out and worry myself and others that a cop would see and pull us over instantly for possession of cannabis. Nowadays you can purchase cannabis oil pens which are drastically discreet by comparison. They resemble nicotine vape pens and are drastically easy to hide when you’re in public. As long as you aren’t making a big deal out of it, a cannabis oil pen is drastically discreet around others. I’ll keep buying cannabis oil pens if I need something for public consumption.
