My Not So Secret Diary

Taking Things Personally

Personal Steven Bartlett Sober author and blogger Claire Hatwell
It took me a long time to realise this, and I’m not saying I still remember it every time something happens, but it’s true. Sometimes by facing up to our fears or worries or addictions, we are shining a light on those feelings in others. Let’s try not to take it personally. I know how I would have reacted if someone had told me to get sober before I was ready. It wouldn’t have been pretty and I wouldn’t have been ready for the journey. They’ll know when it’s right, and their battle isn’t ours. Save your energy for your own fight and most of all, have a great day!!
