The other day I observed someone who was clearly uncomfortable in their own skin...I remember being there-the feeling of crawling out of your skin, of not fitting in, of having no clue who you were, and being scared as shit as to who you were going to become...being lost, and confused. I think everyone feels that way in the beginning of sobriety.
Or maybe we felt that way since the beginning, and that's why booze came into play...who knows? All I know is that by the grace of God, and my recovery program, I am happy and comfortable being me. I never in a million year thought that would happen.
