Not my business

When I was drinking I acted like I didn’t care about a thing in the world. I’d tell my friends I didn’t care that I was acting a fool in front of strangers. I said I wasn’t scared of anyone… bring it on if you must. What a total bunch of bullsh*t. I was a depressed, fearful, anxious mess for years. I thought I masked it ok but looking back I know I didn’t. When I stopped drinking people were shocked. NOBODY (I mean literally NOBODY) thought I could. When I had two months sober people started to take me seriously. When I had a year, they started asking for advice. It doesn’t matter if they think I can or can’t, if they talk about me or don’t, if they love me or hate me. This mantra is tossed around quite a bit in recovery spaces – it’s none of my business what people think of me. I can finally say that and believe it. What do I care? I was always the one most concerned about what liquid was in my glass; now when I mention to others that I don’t drink they let it go. No one is pouring shots down my throat. It’s up to me what I do and it’s up to them what they think and the world keeps on spinning regardless. Happy Friday, sober family! Keep it simple today.
