Hey everyone, maybe some of you can help me with this topic
I am 32, I’m almost 500 days sober, yet I have never felt this stuck, unconfident and just really lost in my life. It seems like in sobriety I have become very sensitive to everything in life. I have realized that in sobriety alot of it is spent by yourself getting to know yourself. It is almost a bizarre feeling!
When I was drinking and doing drugs I was always around people. When I had problems I could burry them with substances. I’ve pretty much gone from an extreme extrovert to an extreme introvert in sobriety. I’m really feeling like in the last 100 days I am starting life from scratch on how to deal with my emotions and my mindset in life. I’m feeling like I am just starting to live life, and this comes with a ton of emotions! I guess the honeymoon of sobriety has ended haha.
For those who have felt this way in their life, how did you keep yourself grounded through difficult times? How did you communicate to yourself on a daily basis to keep positive? How did you find confidence within?
I know there are some experienced folks on here, thanks!
