I look at past relationships sometimes and wonder what the hell I was thinking. I do believe that people come into our lives for a reason but I seemed to let the worst people for me stay. When I was in active addiction I didn’t think I deserved better. I liked to tell myself that I was better than them and it was an ego boost. How sad is that? Now I try to surround myself with people who are kind, loving, compassionate, and sober. If I’m the smartest one in the room… I’m in the wrong fucking place. I’m excited for this new year and the people who are now in my life – not just for a season, but for a reason. We all leave a mark wherever we go. I try to leave a positive one behind. Happy Friday, sober family. Keep it simple today.
