No matter how far along you are in your sobriety, sometimes something seemingly inconsequential hits you like a ton of bricks – bringing back all that self-doubt you thought you’d left behind. Wham!
Recently, that happened to me and it brought up an important topic and feeling that a lot of us addicts and alcoholics have – the feeling that we don’t belong. For me, it started at a really young age; I remember feeling that I wasn’t part of the popular crowd in first grade. LOL, is there really a popular “crowd” in first grade?
