Relationships change when you do. It’s scary. And worthwhile. (I think.)

Last time I hid my sobriety like I had hidden my drinking. Sobriety made me feel different and changed. And I did not want to be changed. I wanted everything to stay the same – especially my relationships. More here.

  1. So true. It is easy to fall into that trap believing that if we voice our feelings others will accommodate us.
    Your MIL was smart. She didn’t sugar coat it or deny it.
    That’s true awareness.

    100 days is awesome. Hold on to that momentum moving into the holidays.

    Many of my friendships changed. Even the old ones. Some become stronger and bette. Some faded…especially those that revolved around Monday night football or Saturday happy hour. We just don’t see them.

    But that’s ok. Things will change again.

  2. Happy 100 Days!
    I know this time I got sober, I told everyone and asked for support. No more hiding. It really is helping! Most of my relationships did not change. But I had a lot of good friends. I only had one big drinking buddy.
