I’ve tried before to articulate how when I started my sober journey, my feelings came back to life. It’s common to use alcohol to numb unwanted, unnecessary and unneeded emotions but it’s not meant to be that way. I was reading a book recently that really brought it home to me. We are alive and so we are meant to feel. If we didn’t, we’re not living our lives to the fullest. It’s not always going to be easy. Sometimes it’s going to be hard, but it’s all meant to be. No one said life was meant to be easy, but then the really good things seldom are and I for one want to enjoy it!
