am I what you thought you were getting?
So I’ve lost my closest al anon friend (aka closest friend) due to her turning into an asshat, & I’m on the brink of losing my sponsor too…
This 12-step journey and such is never-ending, isn’t it?
I mean the life journey is never-ending, until of course, it ends, but I think for those of us in recovery life is more challenging than for those of us who aren’t (except for those who are suffering & can hopefully find recovery, or those who are poor,or starving,or being abused etc. I am thankful not to be any of those)
But seriously- it feels like to me everyone around me has a solid sponsor relationship and home group and consistent group of friends, and I don’t. But I know I’m just looking from the outside.
For what it’s worth, I’d like to make a disclaimer, to say you’ve caught me at a weird period. But once you’ve heard yourself say, ‘Things are kind of in flux just now,’ for the hundredth time, you begin to wonder if life isn’t a series of bizarre transitions.
