Monday shame

The worst Mondays were when I went to work after seeing colleagues over the weekend. I’d be reminded by someone in the teacher’s lounge that I’d run into at a bar or party or whatever. Nine times out of ten they’d laughingly proceed to tell me and errrrrone else what I had been doing. I’d pretend to know what they were talking about and laugh it off while dying inside. Once I had taken money out of the tip jar the music teacher had out while he was playing at a local bar. I won’t even discuss the booze cruises we’d go on for end of year celebrations. What’s funny today is that I can’t stand being around drunk people. It’s probably because I see a little bit of myself in each of them. As they say, “if you spot it, you’ve got it”. When I didn’t care about my health or spiritual well being and downed shots as if it were my last day on earth, people assumed it was because that’s what I wanted to do. At the end, it was the last thing I wanted but I didn’t know how to stop. My self esteem was at an all time low. We teach people how to treat us. If I don’t give a fuck about my body and mind, why should anyone else? THANK GOD those days are long gone. I’d hate to relive them. Actually, just writing this gives me anxiety 😬😵‍💫🤣. I don’t have a lot to do today except for one thing. I’ll go to bed sober and wake up with no regrets. Happy Monday, sober family. Keep it simple today.
