People lacking respect, how do I deal with it?
Recently with my persona that I now portray with my new mindset and the way I live my life some close friends of mine some of whom I live with are now starting to find problems with my attitude and are showing a clear lack of respect just because I'm not the same person I was when I was an AFC. I don't have a problem with this when I'm with women I'm gaming because my frame is strong is enough that they accept me as the dominant one leading the interaction.
With my new lifestyle I leave from social interactions with them early so I can endeavour on my gaming and I rarely hang out with them now but then they keep asking why I'm leaving early and they don't accept it when I say "I have better things to do". I smoke weed with my house mate now and then when I'm not gaming but as we kept the weed in his room he smoked a fair bit with his girlfriend saying "We paid for most of it" (it was a 2:1:1 ratio) but I was still disappointed to go ahead and do that, he even did it before when he didn't buy any of it. I just replied with "ok" and started a new conversational thread or talked to someone else.
I expect that when I have been friends with these people for this long that I should be given the same respect back that I give to them. How would should I deal with this?
