I am telling you this for your own benefit, not to put restrictions on you — I am simply concerned that you live in a proper manner and serve the Lord with undivided devotion.
We have a generous and loving Heavenly Father who wants us to be happy. We have so many joys available to us. There are those who seek to draw closer to the Spirit by denying their Flesh, this too is a freedom granted by our Maker. There is One True King and there are many ways to serve Him in Spirit and in Truth.
